The manual SUVs are dying out, which is a shame for people who want to row their own gears in a high-riding vehicle. There may not be many such people, but for the few there are, some cool used manual SUVs are currently listed for sale on Autotrader. These are the five best of those manual suvs.

1988 Lamborghini LM002 - $475,000

Although I covered this LM002 in a previous Autotrader Find, it deserves another mention because it's just so cool. With a manual transmission mated to a Lamborghini V12, the LM002 brought Hummer-esque styling to the Italian sports car. This particular example has covered around 34,000 miles, and it recently underwent a huge $45,000 service to get it back into good running condition -- and now it's listed by Cats Exotics in Washington for $475,000.

1993 Land Rover Defender 110 - $139,900

The Land Rover Defender was only sold in North America for four model years, and the 4-door "110" model was offered for just one: 1993. In 1993, just 535 examples of the so-called "North American Specification 110" were built -- and this is reportedly one of just two made at the factory in black. All the "NAS 110" models were manual and fitted with an external roll cage, and many were well-preserved -- including this one, which has covered just 72,500 miles. It's now offered by Jaguar Land Rover Minneapolis for $139,900.

G-Wagen

1984 Mercedes-Benz 230GE - $31,500

The Mercedes-Benz G-Class has only ever been offered in North America with an automatic transmission, only as a 4-door and only since 2002. But the G-Wagen has been sold elsewhere for years, and this privately imported example is a 2-door with a manual transmission. It's offered by a private seller in Miami where it's listed with 175,000 miles for $31,500 -- big money, but about right for the highly desirable G-Class.

2008 Porsche Cayenne GTS

2008 Porsche Cayenne GTS - $28,244

Although the Porsche Cayenne was offered with a manual transmission for about a decade -- since its release, up until a couple of years ago -- it was almost always mated to a boing V6 engine. The lone exception was a couple years in the late 2000s when you could get the stick shift hooked up to the Cayenne GTS's V8 -- a very rare vehicle, but a possibility nonetheless. This particular 2008 Cayenne GTS is, indeed, a 6-speed manual, offered with 96,000 miles by Vorderman Volkswagen in Fort Wayne, Indiana, for $28,244.

1982 Toyota Land Cruiser

1982 Toyota Land Cruiser - $35,500

The original "FJ40" Toyota Land Cruiser was sold all the way through 1983, despite releasing in the early 1960s. This is a very late example of the original Land Cruiser, unsurprisingly fitted with a manual transmission, as no automatic was ever offered. This one is offered by Gateway Ford in rural Greeneville, Tennessee, for $35,500 -- an indication that the market for these is starting to take off as demand for old manual SUVs increases.
