Autotrader Find: 1996 Geo Tracker Off-Roader

In the world of off-road vehicles, you tend to see roughly the same cars all the time: The Jeep Wrangler and Cherokee, the Toyota Land Cruiser and FJ Cruiser and maybe the occasional Land Rover or Hummer. What you don’t often see built up for off-roading is a Geo Tracker. And yet, here one is, for sale on Autotrader.

This 1996 Geo Tracker is offered by a private seller in Nolensville, Tennessee, near Nashville, for $10,800. That would normally be huge money for a Tracker, but this isn’t a normal Tracker. Instead, it’s a Tracker designed to take on Jeeps, with all the usual off-roading accoutrements — like front and rear steel bumpers, bigger off-roading tires, steel wheels and a lift kit. The ad also notes it has a new engine with more power than the motor in a stock Tracker, along with rhino liner in the cargo area, an 8,000-pound winch, a snorkel, a skid plate and locking hubs. This is, quite simply, the ultimate Geo Tracker.

For those of you who don’t know the Tracker, and thus don’t know why I’m surprised by this, the Tracker was a small SUV from GM’s short-lived, budget-priced “Geo” brand that was aimed at, well, budget-minded consumers. Even though the Tracker was a twin of the relatively tough Suzuki Sidekick, it wasn’t really intended for off-roading — but that hasn’t stopped the owner of this one. And it doesn’t have to stop you, either, if you buy the ultimate Geo Tracker. Find a Geo Tracker for sale

  1. I’ll tell ya, the tracker is a fun little car. It’s basically just a poor man’s wrangler & they last past 200k all day long. Plus the thing is about the size of a Fiat 500, you know, if you lifted it, so it’s great for fitting into tight spots. I’d imagine this one is better than the 3-speed 70 hp one I had, but that was still fun otherwise
