1987 Jeep Wrangler

The 1987 Jeep Wrangler is an SUV with one of two engine options: a 2.5-liter inline 4-cylinder or a 4.2-liter 6-cylinder, either of which should provide plenty of power for whatever you need to do. Two transmission choices complete the power package, a 3-speed automatic or a 5-speed manual. Two doors and 4-wheel drive add to the effect of the SUV that has become one of the off-road vehicle standards.

The Jeep Wrangler has been around for over 20 years, a longstanding vehicle in the fickle automotive world. Time and time again, owners return to the Wrangler, with its unique shape and image. The 1987 Jeep Wrangler started a prestigious line of SUVs in fine fashion.
