3. Jeep Grand Cherokee
The original Jeep Grand Cherokee, the ZJ version, was introduced in 1992 and followed by the WJ in 1999 and the WK in 2005. Each model has been available in a variety of different packages and the vehicle won several awards in the '90s and early 2000s. Interesting factoid: The 3.0L diesel ceased production for North America at the end of 2008. The late production models with diesel engines are commonly referred to as 2008.5 models; they can not be stamped as 2009 models due to tougher diesel emissions standards.
