10 Most Iconic Cars of the Past 25 Years

6. Jeep Wrangler (1987-95)

How is the U.S. hero of World War II and a car that's been produced for civilian use since the 1940s considered an '80s and '90s icon?

Simple: Sales of what was once known as the Jeep CJ were in the tank until Chrysler came along and bought the brand. Chrysler put the "square headlights" Jeep on the market with all the ground clearance and 4x4 capability that Jeep die-hards loved, but year by year added features such as an extended roll cage, rear seat belts and antilock brakes to make it a safer, more comfortable ride.

The Wrangler's gone through some big changes in recent years, including various facelifts and an extended-body Unlimited edition that makes it more like a small SUV. It's the modernized features lumped into a package that still has the basic look of a World War II Jeep, though, that made the Wrangler so vital to Jeep's continuing legacy.
