Used Jeep Wrangler Buying Guide

Which Used Jeep Wrangler Is Right for You?

While not an official descendant of the original military model, the modern-day Jeep Wrangler finds its roots in the Willys-Overland military vehicle. Ownership of the Jeep trademark was transferred to Kaiser, American Motors Corporation (AMC), Chrysler, and now, since 2014, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA).

The Wrangler that we know today first appeared in 1986, as a 1987 model, designed by AMC. It was most closely based on the AMC CJ-7. Chrysler purchased AMC shortly after the 1987 Wrangler’s debut.

It is fair to say that the Wrangler was the first SUV. With its military roots still present, it is one of few sport-based off-road vehicles left on the market. Also, it is one of the last of a handful of body-on-frame vehicles. Others are larger and not suited for the terrain that the Wrangler handles with ease. The Wrangler is the number one selling body-on-frame SUV in the U.S., more than doubling the sales of all others.
