Jeep Wagoneer / Grand Wagoneer / Cherokee (SJ): In 1962, Jeep introduced the Wagoneer - the father of all luxury 4x4 SUVS. Replacing the Willys utility wagon, the Wagoneer was designed to provide passenger-car styling, comfort and convenience with the advantage of four-wheel drive. It was packed with innovation and industry firsts - the first automatic transmission in a 4x4 vehicle; the first overhead-cam six-cylinder truck engine, the first 4x4 vehicle with an independent front suspension; the first automatic full-time 4x4 system. The revolutionary Quadra-trac 4x4 system, introduced in 1973, was available in full-size Jeep trucks and wagons, and later in the CJ-7. The SJ line was in production for more than 28 years with only minor technical changes and when production ended, was the longest continuous automotive production run, on the same platform, in U.S. automotive history. The refined Super Wagoneer, introduced in 1965, was a true luxury 4x4 designed for the prestige buyer who desired rugged versatility with sedan comfort and many premium features including air conditioning, power tailgate, power brakes, power steering, seven-position tilt steering wheel, tinted windows, three-tone body striping, vinyl roof, padded vinyl roof with chrome roof-rack, full wheel hubcaps, whitewall tyres and a powerful 270hp V8 engine with console-shift automatic transmission - all as standard.
