This 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited represents the first year of the first generation. Oh yes, this is the one that launched the legend. And with fuel-injected V8 power, a loaded interior, and a useful all-wheel drive system, you're going to see that this low-mileage SUV is both collectible and versatile.
This Grand Cherokee really is part of the bedrock that the premium American SUV market is based on today. Before Denali or Navigators, this Jeep gave a modern look and a luxurious appearance. You see it all in the first impression on this one. The face is unmistakably Jeep, but it has an aerodynamic front end with flush-fitting headlights, and in the rear, the tailgate fits into the body. Black is a great premium color, especially since this one looks like there was a later respray to continue a glossy style. Against the black is plenty of gold in the pinstriping, trim, badging, and even the factory alloys. There are even premium details, like the roof rack, tinted glass, and upgraded tubular step rails. It all looks quite nice because the panels fit together with the level of respect you expect from a vehicle that has averaged under 1,500 miles annually. It represents a highly stock style that's an ideal way to represent the first-ever Grand Cherokee.
The gray interior is highly original, and just like the exterior, the low mileage means less use is seen than other classic SUVs approaching their 30th birthday. The luxury is all about a long list of desirable features, including leather upholstery, power front seats, power windows, power locks, cruise control, a driver's airbag, a tilt steering column, and a sunroof. There are a few details that you'd update depending on your intentions. If you're looking for pure originality, then maybe you'll source a factory stereo from eBay. Or if you're wanting the ultimate comfortable cruiser, you may restore the R134a air conditioning. But overall, the feeling on day one is bold, supple, and impressive. And an SUV like this remains quite useful. The back seat looks terrific, and there's adult-sized legroom. And the cargo area has enough room for everyone's luggage and a full-sized spare tire.
This first-year Grand Cherokee was one of the first completely new products that came out under Chrysler's ownership, and so they had this fitted from the beginning with one of their most desirable motors around. The 5.2-liter V8 is an evolution of the hardy 318 motor that was used for both cars and trucks. It was updated for the modern era with fuel injection. So you get the right mix of good power and desirable consistency. The Quadra-Trac all-wheel drive system is unique with a regular AWD operation, and you can also switch it into a Lo setting for real off-road torque. So it's the ideal mix of everyday driver and Jeep usefulness. There are additional convenient features like power steering, power brakes with ABS, front discs, and a four-speed automatic transmission with highway-friendly overdrive. It's this kind of appealing packaging that has kept the Grand Cherokee popular for decades.
The legend begins right here. So if you want a new-era classic that continues to be both versatile and luxurious, you know you need this low-mileage Grand Cherokee. Call today!!!
