AMC Wagoneer Car Transport Cost

AMC has done it again with the Wagoneer, an early Sports Utility Vehicle, produced under varying marques from 1963 to 1991. Surprisingly, in the competitive automotive industry, it was in production for more than 28 years with only minor mechanical changes. Making it revolutionary at the time were the overhead cam engine, independent front suspension (which was later discontinued), and the supplemental features unheard of in any other 4WD vehicle on the market. The Wagoneer was the first true luxury 4×4 to be marketed; and it was welcomed alongside the models being offered from International Harvester and Land Rover – which were producing utilitarian work-oriented vehicles that were quite spartan and truck-like on the inside ‘ not exactly selling luxury!

Car Transport Cost For AMC Wagoneer

Based on the Jeep SJ platform, the Wagoneer debuted seven years (24 years in the United States) before the Land Rover Range Rover. The extremely popular Cherokee was a less luxurious version of the Wagoneer, and thus the new addition to the market allowed consumers to obtain exactly the car for their needs and desires. The original Wagoneer remained in production to the fancy of consumers until the Grand Wagoneer took its place years later. The original Wagoneer was a full-size, body-on-frame piece of artwork that shared its design standards with the Jeep Gladiator pickup truck. Originally, it was available in two and four-door body styles, while the two-door model was also available as a panel truck with windowless sides behind the doors and double “barn doors” in the rear. The less popular two-door models were discontinued in 1968. When AMC purchased Kaiser-Jeep in 1970, it was decided that the Jeep lineup would be upgraded, and from 1971 on, only AMC engines would be offered in the Wagoneer. The 2-door version was remarkably reintroduced in 1974 as the best selling Cherokee. Go to our easy to use car transport cost calculator on this page and learn more about the AMC Wagoneer.

Suzuki X-90 Car Transport Cost

The Suzuki X-90, known as the Cabrio in Japan, was a small Sport Utility Vehicle sold from 1996 through 1998. It was loosely based on the Suzuki Sidekick, but had extremely rounded styling, two doors, seating for two and a T-section removable roof. It supplanted the Samurai for the United States. The X-90 was offered with four wheel drive or rear wheel drive and used a 1.6 L I4 16-valve engine, which pumped out 95 hp. The transmission choices offered were a 5-speed manual or an automatic. Air conditioning was also available, as was a dealer installed 6 disk CD changer. It had dual air bags and anti-lock brakes for the safety conscious drivers. The suspension used MacPherson struts and coil springs in front and coil springs with wishbone and trailing links in the rear of the vehicle.

To be expected, sales in Europe were poor. In total 1,500 units reached the UK alone and Suzuki had trouble marketing and even selling the models. Very appropriately, in 2004, BBC’s Top Gear magazine awarded the car the status of the worst car of all time. This is of course one award that no company is looking to claim. The X-90 began as a concept car and had initially received wide praise from the public. However, as previously stated, the production vehicle was a flop. Just 7,205 X-90s were imported into the US in total. More than half were sold in 1996, with sales dropping to 2,087 the next year and just 477 units in 1998. The Sidekick was thankfully replaced by the Vitara and the Grand Vitara for 1999. The Grand Vitara became Suzuki’s first model with a V6-cylinder engine and it was available 4-wheel ABS brakes. Suzuki will be very glad to put the X-90 far behind them and work toward bigger and better things. You can obtain more information going here and a car transport cost on our calculator for your Suzuki X-90.
