THE 1990’S

Sharp Magazine Middle East (English) - - Auto -

JEEP GRAND CHERO­KEE (ZJ/ WJ): The Grand Chero­kee (ZJ) re­placed the Wagoneer as a mid-sized lux­ury SUV in 1992 and was a de­sign class many au­tomak­ers would rush to im­i­tate. The first SUV equipped with a driver side airbag, it set new stan­dards for on-road ride, han­dling and com­fort in an SUV and proved im­me­di­ately pop­u­lar, win­ning dozens of awards, in­clud­ing Mo­tor Trend mag­a­zine’s Truck of the Year , Four Wheeler mag­a­zine’s Four Wheeler of the Year and 4Wheel & Off-road mag­a­zine’s 4x4 of the Year in 2003. JEEP WRAN­GLER (TJ): Con­sid­ered the ul­ti­mate es­cape ma­chine, the TJ of­fered out­stand­ing on-road han­dling and leg­endary off-road ca­pa­bil­ity - it was the fifth Jeep brand ve­hi­cle to win the “4x4 of the Year” award. The new Wran­gler had a retro-look very sim­i­lar to the CJ-7 but was very dif­fer­ent from a me­chan­i­cal stand­point, with nearly 80% of its parts be­ing newly de­signed. Start­ing with the ba­sic Wran­gler plat­form, Jeep en­gi­neers gave the Wran­gler the most thor­ough over­haul since the Quad evolved into the MB.
