1996: The coil-sprung Jeep Wrangler arrived in Australia for the Australian International Motor Show (Sydney) and the National 4x4 Show (Melbourne), October 1996. It went on sale in November '96. Earlier in the year the Grand Cherokee went on sale - Jeep Australia is getting serious.
This truck has a proud heritage, going back to the WWII Jeep MB, and it looks the part. It is rather low and wide for rough four wheel driving, but some simple mod's should make it more capable. For example, Teraflex Suspension, and others, can loosen it up - for a fee.
The Wrangler is Jeep's attempt at a 4x4 sports car.
It will be interesting to see how many buyers
can remember the old Jeep nostalgia, let alone be swayed by it.
The biggest drawback for Australia has to be the small load area
and the low payload of only 420kg which must include the occupants.
It seems to be aimed at the "fun" market
but does a 4L cast-iron engine, and only 3-speeds in the auto',
