Old SUVs are suddenly shooting up in value. To find out why, I checked out an old Toyota Land Cruiser and a Jeep Grand Wagoneer.

      Jeep needs to remake the grand wagoneer, FCA needs a Tahoe competitor

      Old cars are simply better than today's laptops with wheels.

      Without watching the video: they haven't made real SUVs since the mid to early 90s and people are fed up with fat station wagons designed to pick up groceries. Pretty close?

      i'll take a trailblazer or envoy from the around 2005 any day over these. they have airbags for safety, they are dirt cheap on the used market, a 7 passenger version available, separate climate controls for rear passengers and they have everything else praised about these two vehicles... true 4wd (hi & lo) as well as 4AWD like modern vehicles and 2hi when you don't want to waste gas in 4 wheel mode - all with a single switch. the extended length with some goodyear tripletreds is great in the snow. they are easy to work on with lots of room in the engine bay. i prefer the inline 6 atlas (former ward's ten best) engine over the v8. you can get one with fairly low mileage for $3k-$5k. there's also the envoy xuv which is pretty cool. change the transmission fluid and transfer case fluid as scheduled and you will be able to drive it 250k miles or more before having to pay much in repairs that anyone half mechanically inclined couldn't fix. the main thing that goes at around 100k is a coil pack or two. but you can get them off of amazon for $20 each (x6) and it is easier than changing spark plugs - do them all at 100k is my suggestion. some have transmission problems way after 150k miles that is just a solenoid replacement but, again, keep the fluids fresh and you will have good luck with these.


      funny thing is doug praises these vehicles but would most definitely poo poo the envoy/trailblazer even they they are the same as these two vehicles but with upgrades and not modern crossover upgrades but upgrades one would want with a nice old body on frame vehicle.

      We had 3 Wagoneers: 1968 4 barrel, 73 and an 80. Later I drove a 79 Cherokee with the hated Ensign Blue paint and vinyl stripes, factory lift package.

      I'm so sad I had to sell my college car. It was a 87 grand wagoneer. Green with the wooden panels. It wasn't perfect but gas was almost 5$ a gallon. As a struggling college kid I couldn't afford to drive it 15 miles to class. It was like 10$ every single time I drove it. Wish I would've parked it and left it. This was in 2011.

      Annoying 3 button analogy. The reason these older vehicles are popular is due to the fact they were built before everything was computerized. Running simple things through a circuit board, like control of electric windows, climate controls, even the throttle, introduces fail modes. Digital isn't always better when it causes a higher failure rate and reduced reliability. Many of the computerized components are related to emission controls. Electronic fuel injection and ignition do seem to be a great step up. But engineers don't know when to stop, they take it so far the car ends up with so many failure modes it's eventually hated.

      Have always loved the mid-80s Grand Wagoneers. Great for hunting or camping vacations. They, along with the Chevy Suburban were a staple in upper-middle class suburbia - reserved for people who made good money. Not so much nowadays. Nothing is sacred anymore.

      I made it to 2:48. Since this guy is stuck on "three buttons", why watch the rest of the video. I made it to 2:48.

      I owned both. The gas mileage killed me. Too expensive to drive. The grand Cherokee literally got 10mpg. But they look cool as hell and are very simple. But both are incredibly heavy and struggle in the freeway.

      When I was 12 my friends dad had a wagoneer bush truck. It was a war wagon. I remember his dad taking us for a rip when he was drunk in it back in the bush and he hit a tree. I remember the rad leaking green stuff and we had to walk back to his house.
