These Are the Best Old American SUVs for Sale on Autotrader

If your vehicle search takes you to the world of old SUVs, you’re probably finding that many are in rough shape after years of poor maintenance and abuse — as a family hauler, a snowplow, a tow vehicle or many other things. But some are preserved and survive for decades in excellent condition — and I’ve rounded up five old American SUVs that are in especially excellent shape.

1996 AM General Hummer

1996 AM General Hummer – $59,500

The Hummer has always been a sought-after SUV — and many were well preserved, as they were always expensive vehicles. This particular Hummer is in excellent shape, having traveled just 24,000 miles from new. It’s the popular wagon model, finished in gray with a black interior, and it’s offered by Gordie Boucher Lincoln of West Allis in Wisconsin for $59,500. Find an AM General Hummer for sale

1987 Chevrolet Suburban

1987 Chevrolet Suburban – $28,888

Although many enthusiasts are starting to warm up to the 1980s Chevrolet Suburban for its cool looks and excellent family-hauler capabilities — not to mention its nostalgic interior and exterior designs — it’s very hard to find an old Suburban in good shape. But this is one: this 1987 Suburban has traveled just 27,000 miles from new, and it looks pristine. It’s offered by Sam Leman Ford in Bloomington, Illinois, for $28,888.

1999 Dodge Durango SP360

1999 Dodge Durango SP360 – $27,900

This Dodge Durango SP360 is a special vehicle, as it’s a high-performance version of the Durango modified by Shelby. Only 300 of these were supposedly made, and each featured a supercharged version of the Durango’s V8 engine, bringing surprisingly big power to the SUV — in an era when high-performance SUVs were uncommon. This 1999 Durango SP360 is offered with just 25,700 miles by a seller in — fittingly — Durango, Colorado, for $27,900. Find a Dodge Durango for sale

1989 Jeep Grand Wagoneer

1989 Jeep Grand Wagoneer – $29,900

The Jeep Grand Wagoneer has been gaining in value for years — and nice examples of later Grand Wagoneer models, made from 1988 to 1991, seem to be climbing with no end in sight. This particular 1989 Grand Wagoneer is in fantastic shape, having traveled just 62,000 miles from new. Reportedly refurbished by Grand Wagoneer experts WagonMaster back in 2002, this Grand Wagoneer is highly attractive and original — and it’s offered by a private seller in Fort Walton Beach, Florida, for $29,900. Find a Jeep Grand Wagoneer for sale

2000 Jeep Wrangler

2000 Jeep Wrangler – $23,995

The Jeep Wrangler is a well-known and well-loved vehicle, of course, but as most Wrangler models age, they’re usually cut up and used as off-roaders and rock crawlers. Not this one. This 2000 Wrangler has traveled just 18,800 miles from new — and although it’s been lifted, it’s still in surprisingly nice shape. It’s offered by a private seller in the coastal town of Portsmouth, New Hampshire, for $23,995. Find a Jeep Wrangler for sale

  1. I live in Durango, so I went to check out the Durango………’s already been sold.  Surprised I never noticed it on the streets here.  Of course they do have quite a few older Durangos around town.
