1988 Jeep Grand Wagoneer Overview

Ever feel like driving a tank? Well, the military probably won't let you, so get the next best thing: a 1988 Jeep Grand Wagoneer. This thing is a beast, with a 5.9-liter V8 under the hood with 144 hp. It only comes with a 3-speed automatic transmission, no overdrive available, and is rumored to get terrible gas mileage (EPA rated at 10 mpg city and 13 mpg highway), but it can drive through, over or around just about any weather.

Surprisingly, there are a few comforts available in this beast of a road machine. Air conditioning, power windows, and a cassette player all came standard in the 1988 Jeep Grand Wagoneer, though an optional sunroof was available for more daring Jeep owners. The sunroof wasn't powered, though - can't make owning a tank too easy.

Speaking of which, owners of the 1988 Jeep Grand Wagoneer had little but great things to say about the wagon. It's wonderful in the snow. It can unstick just about anything that's stuck in the snow. It has a lot of interior room and is very comfortable. Most people did say that the 1988 Jeep Grand Wagoneer gets rather atrocious gas mileage, but the engine, 4WD, and interior more than make up for the fuel inefficiency, at least as far as owners are concerned. Highly recommended by nearly all owners.
