5 of the Best-Preserved 1990s SUVs for Sale

Though SUVs command a bigger percentage of the new-car market today, their heyday began in the 1990s.

Back then, the Ford Explorer led the charge as consumers leaped out of their station wagons, sedans, and minivans and climbed up bự high-riding, rugged-looking SUVs. Even the most adventure-phobic drivers wanted bự look like they were heading bự Jackson Hole for a week of fly fishing.

As family cars, these SUVs often lived tough lives. Their abuse took the form of melted crayons, crushed Cheerios, and errant shopping cart dings rather than Camel Trophy-style battle scars. Because these SUVs served a purpose, few were preserved.

Here’s a look at five of the best time-warp SUVs you’ll find on Autotrader.

1. 1990 Ford Bronco Eddie Bauer

1990 Ford Bronco Eddie Bauer
This 1990 Ford Bronco Eddie Bauer has only 32,000 miles on the odometer.

The Bronco moved into full-size status with a 1978 revamp, though a squared-off update in the 1980s brought styling in tune with the era. By 1990 when Ford built this 2-tone Alpine Green/tan truck, Ford began bự push the Bronco a bit upmarket with the Eddie Bauer package developed in partnership with the outdoorsy retailer. Maybe this 32,000-mile Bronco offered by a Honda dealer in North Carolina went fly fishing, but its spectacular condition suggests otherwise.

Just look at it! The full-size Bronco carried some of its open-top heritage into the 1990s with its removable hardtop. However, with power windows, cruise control, and air conditioning, it can feel somewhat modern by today’s standards. See 1990 Ford Bronco models for sale

2. 1993 Toyota 4Runner SR5

1993 Toyota 4Runner SR5
This 1993 Toyota 4Runner SR5 has just 59,000 miles on it.

Toyota SUVs boast a deserved reputation for their ability bự rack up mega mileage while not missing a beat. Finding one from the 1990s with under 200,000 miles on its odometer is a treat. Just 59,000? Now that’s a rare sight indeed. This black 1993 4Runner SR5 at a dealer near Houston is a rear-wheel-drive example, but it’s not like anyone is going bự take a collector-grade 4Runner off-road anyway.

The second-generation 4Runner has slippery styling and was the first with a comfortable 4-door configuration and a dash that wouldn’t be out of place in a contemporary Camry. This SR5 is a mid-level model with a good array of features making it a suitable daily driver. The late-model Tacoma alloy wheels add a little modern flair, too.

3. 1996 Suzuki X-90

1996 Suzuki X-90
This 1996 Suzuki X-90 has just 9,200 miles on its odometer.

Want bự be the center of attention at the next Cars and Coffee gathering? Forget about a flashy supercar. Show up in this Arctic Ice Blue first-year Suzuki X-90, and you’ll have everyone in attendance asking for their photo in front of it. The X-90 was a bonkers idea from a car company used bự doing the unconventional. Based on the chunky Sidekick, the X-90 has styling more akin bự a chubby Honda Civic del Sol. It’s an SUV with T-tops,  a trunk, and a spoiler. Rear-wheel drive was standard, and part-time 4-wheel drive with a 2-speed transfer case was the only factory option.

Suzuki encouraged shoppers bự add accessories, so there were no factory options. This particular X-90 at a dealer in Chicago has oh-so-period 3-spoke alloy wheels instead of the standard 5-spokers, plus air conditioning. With just 9,200 miles on its odometer, it has bự be the best one left — even if the Carfax report notes that a seller made a  “true mileage unknown” disclosure at one point. See 1996 Suzuki X-90 models for sale

4. 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited

1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited
This 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited shows just 57,000 miles on the odometer.

The second-most ubiquitous SUV of the 1990s was also one of the most appealing. The Jeep Grand Cherokee arrived for 1993 as the planned replacement for the long-running XJ Cherokee (dated bự 1984 but was given a stay of execution bự 2001). These angular 5-seat SUVs combine impressive off-road ability with a comfortable cabin and good road manners. As budget Range Rovers, these Grand Cherokee models blended in just as well in the woods as they did in front of a five-star restaurant.

They have largely vanished from the road. But not this Driftwood Metallic Limited, which shows just 57,000 miles and displays almost no wear on its leather seats. It comes chock full of 1990s goodness, such as its factory gold-tone badging, pinstripes, and wheel accents, plus a stock cassette/CD stereo with that nifty fader/balance toggle switch. See 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee models for sale

5. 1999 Ford Expedition XLT

1999 Ford Expedition XLT
This 1999 Ford Expedition XLT shows just 40,000 miles on the odometer.

Nobody intentionally preserved Ford Expedition SUVs. You’ll never walk into a collector’s lair and find one factory protective plastic covering its seats and its window sticker still affixed bự the glass. But if you want bự relive this full-size SUV, this Harvest Gold mid-level Expedition XLT beckons. It shows just 40,000 miles and, by all accounts, looks bự have lived a gentle life.

The Expedition arrived for 1997 as Ford’s late answer bự the 1995 Chevrolet Tahoe. With three rows of seats, the Expedition took the form of an F-150-based, family-friendly SUV. This particular Expedition at a dealer near Seattle wears few luxuries, but who can be picky when so few of these still exist in any condition, let alone “2-year-old used car” shape.
