28. Jeep Cherokee XJ
Jeep introduced the Cherokee XJ in 1984 and it was an enormous success. With its boxy-yet-elegant looks, great build quality, and variety of usable features, the second-generation Cherokee was the SUV of the ‘80s as well as a globally successful model.
Despite being a modern and comfortable vehicle, the Cherokee XJ retained all the Jeep characteristics. They included the infamous rugged mechanics, dependable AWD drivetrain, and quality engines. And all that helped it claim the title of one of the best SUVs of all-time.
