What Are the Best Years and Models for Jeeps?



If you love Jeeps, you probably know its endurance and timelessness despite the fact that over eight decades of its history, Jeep has changed its corporate owner several times. Interestingly, while Jeep has undergone improvements, its core strength of endurance has remained unaltered. Some of the very old Jeep models still retain their core value and continue to be in demand. 

Jeep Willys MB (1941-1945)

This model is the one that Jeep started out with. It can be defined as adventurous, creative, and rugged. This model continues to deliver the same strength and style it did in the course of its long history.

Jeep CJ5 (1955-1983)

CJ5 transitioned out of its military design to make it a consumer classic. With more power and comfort added, this Jeep model made a mass appeal.

Jeep Wagoneer (1963-1991)

This model has consistently maintained its platform or 28 years. This was the first four-wheel drive to offer an automatic transmission.

Jeepster Commando (1966-1971)

Balancing style and functionality, this Jeep model with open-air style and two rows was highly attractive to the consumers. Despite design modifications, the Jeep style remains untouched.

Jeep CJ-7 (1976-1986)

Close on the heels of the success of CJ-5, the advent of this model made a mass appeal once again. Additional safety and comfort features have now become standard.

Jeep Cherokee (1984-2001)

This was the best SUV of its kind even before the SUV idea came into existence. Significant upgrades included impeccable design and different engine options. It continues to be a classic even today.

Jeep Grand Cherokee (1993)

Taking cues from the original Jeep design, this model was a hallmark in luxury packaging combining style and off-roading capabilities.

Jeep Wrangler TJ (1997-2007)

This new wrangler added on-roading capacities, an improvement over the original Wrangler, to establish itself as a Jeep that combined function without sacrificing fun.

Jeep Wrangler Unlimited JK (2007)

This edition marked the beginning of the four-door model. While retaining the off-roading and style features, convenience was added to the classic.

Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk (2018)

This is an SUV with the roaring 707 HP off its 6.2-liter V8 engine. Its amazing off-road power remains unmatched. The model’s outrageous performance is only matched by its style.
