1986-1991

The final Wagoneer (now Grand Wagoneer) front-end design retained the one-piece bumper, separate side-marker and rectangular headlights of the previous design, but moved away from the "sculpted" grille to a flat black plastic grille divided into three horizontal bands by two chrome strips. A raised portion of the grille occupied the space created by the "peak" in the hood that was retained from the original 1963 design. A final design touch was the vertical hood ornament that was expected on the kind of luxury vehicle that the Wagoneer had grown to be. This front-end design was now employed on the J-series pickup, however, laying to rest the tradition of Jeep reserving a unique grille-style for their top-of-the-line model, the Wagoneer.
