Jeep just unveiled the all-new Wagoneer SUV. If this has you thinking about old Wagoneers, then you’ve come to the right place. Here we’ve highlighted five of the coolest classic Jeep Wagoneers currently for sale on Autotrader.
Prior to the roll-out of the ‘Grand Wagoneer’ name for the 1984 model year, the vehicle was known simply as the ‘Wagoneer’, the top trim level of which was the Limited. When Jeep introduced the XJ Cherokee for 1984, it re-branded the Wagoneer as the ‘Grand Wagoneer’, in order to make room for an upscale version of the Cherokee that would carry the ‘Wagoneer’ name. The vehicle highlighted here is a 1981 Wagoneer Limited. While the listing fails to note the mileage, it does mention that the vehicle comes with a rebuilt engine and transmission and that it was originally part of a local news fleet. All service records, and even the original window sticker, are included. Find a Jeep Wagoneer for sale
The most expensive Grand Wagoneer listed for sale on Autotrader is this 1991 ‘Final Edition’ model. With just under 49,000 miles on the odometer, it’s likely one of the lowest-mileage Grand Wagoneers left, and the listing states that it’s been restored and mechanically sorted by Wagonmaster; a Texas-based shop specializing in the restoration and preservation of Grand Wagoneers. Under the hood of this immaculate 1991 Jeep Grand Wagoneer, you’ll find a 5.9-liter AMC V8 mated to a three-speed automatic transmission. This flawless example of the legendary Grand Wagoneer is located in Greenwich, CT with an asking price of $89,900. Find a Jeep Grand Wagoneer for sale
The least expensive Grand Wagoneer listed on Autorader is also a 1991 model, but needless to say, it’s in far worse shape than the one just above it on our list. Offered by a private seller in Fort Gibson, OK, this particular 1991 Wagoneer is in need of some help. The paint is peeling, and there are some nasty rust holes along the lower parts of the body. That said, the interior looks to be in impressive shape, and the wood paneling is surprisingly well-preserved. Like the $90,000 option above it, this 1991 Grand Wagoneer comes with AMC’s 5.9-liter V8 paired with a three-speed auto. A fun basis for a project, provided you’re ready to do some bodywork.

The first-generation Jeep Cherokee is akin to a two-door Wagoneer with an emphasis on sportiness over luxury, and Jeep even marketed it as such. It rides on the SJ platform – just like the Wagoneer – and was offered in a number of fun trim levels, including Chief, Golden Eagle, and Golden Hawk, among others. The SJ Cherokee we’ve highlighted here is a Chief model. It packs an inline six-cylinder engine mated to a four-speed manual transmission capable of sending power to all four wheels. According to the listing, it’s a one-owner vehicle and the photos show it to be nearly immaculate inside and out, despite showing just under 200,000 miles on the odometer. It’s located at a dealer in Scottsdale, AZ with an asking price of $39,900. Find a Jeep Cherokee for sale
While the most famous Wagoneer was built on the SJ platform, there was in fact a period when Jeep offered a ‘Wagoneer’ on the XJ platform as well. To the untrained eye, this is a Cherokee with wood paneling and a weird grille, but while this thing was on sale new, Jeep actually considered it to be its own product separate from the Cherokee line. Production of the XJ Wagoneer lasted from 1984 through 1990. This one, a 1989 model, comes with 160,000 miles on the odometer and an asking price just shy of $11,000. It’s located at a dealership in Nashville, TN. Find a Jeep Wagoneer for sale
