1989 Jeep Wrangler Overview

The 1989 Jeep Wrangler keeps to the previous year tradition of having two engines available: a 4.2 liter 6 cylinder and a 2.5 liter I4. Also like the previous year models, the 1989 Jeep Wrangler has two available transmissions, a 3 speed automatic and a 5 speed manual. Two doors and four wheel drive complete the SUV and create the stereotype for the fun, everyday SUV. Gas mileage obviously isn't great (this is an SUV, after all) but 18/20 isn't terrible.
Comfort is a bit sparse in this SUV that can technically house 5 (though I wouldn't suggest more than 3 for the convenience of whoever is in the back seat). Air conditioning is optional, as is a cassette player. But don't worry, the 1989 Jeep Wrangler has something better than a sunroof; it's got a removable soft top available, which isn't too difficult to take off and put on.

Owners of the 1989 Jeep Wrangler typically had good things to say, especially since most of the posts online are about the SUV after it was 10 years old. Of course some mechanical problems exist, but many of them can agree on one thing. There is little better than a summer day, cruising down the road in a 1989 Jeep Wrangler with the top down and the radio blaring. The 1989 Jeep Wrangler was built for fun, and 18 years later, it still is.
