About the 1989 Jeep Grand Wagoneer
The 1989 Jeep Grand Wagoneer (SJ) was part of the 4th generation of Jeep Wagoneers produced by Chrysler since 1963. The sound design of this sport utility was penned by the famous graphics and architectural designer, Brooks-Stevens (designer of the 1962 Studebaker Gran Turismo Hawk and 1949 Hydra-Glide Harley-Davidson motorcycle).

From the get-go, the vehicle was a massive hit with consumers due to its compelling traits, including a roomy cabin, 4WD system, luxurious styling, and then state-of-the-art instrumentation. These features further enhanced the SUV’s feature richness and amplified the upgrades already received by the vehicle’s ’86 model.

Imperfectly Perfect
Of all the creature comforts the 1989 Jeep Grand Wagoneer had – air conditioning, power windows, cassette player, optional sunroof, and rear-window wiper – the latter added the least value to the prestigious mode of transport. Adding it to the vehicle was unwarranted to a point where GW (Grand Wagoneer) enthusiasts advise its removal.

That aside, owners are extremely satisfied with the SUV and appreciate its ability to drive anywhere regardless of weather conditions. The tank-like build of the luxury wagon gives riders a feeling of safety when behind the wheel. Collectively, its strong points more than compensate for its minor snitches and terrible gas mileage.

Wood panels were a standout feature of the ’89 model. Complementing these were headliners, sun visors, and door trim panels made of color-keyed fabric, with the latter made of vinyl and coupled with upper woodgrain molding. Aside from the door trims, the passenger, rear, tailgate, and cargo areas also received nylon carpeting. Other standard inclusions were:

  • Power bucket seats.
  • A folding center armrest.
  • A two-spoked leather-wrapped steering wheel.

Washing the vehicle with cold water, wiping it dry with a chamois, and keeping it away from direct sunlight will help preserve the mint condition of the 1989 Jeep Wagoneer’s exterior. The same goes for the Wagoneer’s chrome and metal trims. If frequently taking the wheeler on road trips, Jeep polish is said to mitigate the impacts of extreme sun exposure on the body panels.

Monopolizing the 4WD Segment
The fact that the base design and mechanical structure of the 1989 Jeep Wagoneer were mostly left untouched throughout its production run only proves the solidity of its customer base and the lack of competition for the vehicle. Moreover, its manufacturer did not want to mess with the fat profit margin the wheeler was earning for the firm – falling between $5,000 and $6,000 per car. This was unquestionably serious money at the time.
