The only classic SUVs I can think of are already considered classics:

Jeep CJ



Jeep Wagoneer


Land Rover Series



Range Rover Classic



Land Cruiser 40



Humvee H1 This is the AM General one that is a civilian version of the military vehicle.

To that list I would add the first-gen Ford Bronco:


And for modern SUVs, I would consider these to be potential classics:

The 1992-93 GMC Typhoon

The 2006-2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8

So what about the TJ-series Unlimited Rubicon?

The Puma has no wide class appeal. A good car does not necessarily make a classic car.

It looks fantastic, based on the Fiesta so parts are cheap. The 1.7 is a great car and the racing Puma holds it's value.
And it's technically a 'girls car'.

That makes it a good second hand buy, not a classic.

I think the first gen bronco's are already classics.
So do I, which is why I said that I would add it to Argatoga's list of SUVs that are already considered classics. I considered adding a couple of Internationals - the first-gen Scout and Travelall - but I don't think they have wide enough appeal to be considered "classic".

Welcome to the French Car classics section, Mr. C6. Your table with DS, SM and Traction Avant is ready for you when you choose to come.

I approve, but it's still not nearly as cool in my opinion.

International SUV's are very underrated and under appreciated vehicles. They are very cool.

Hmmm, here's my stab at this:



Limited production run and doubt there will be anything like it soon and...well, just look at it!



Surely...this has got to be one of the most "out there" cars ever made. I'm just so happy it exists.



Goodness, a Mustang that handles? I'll take two please...



This allready has a cult following, and do you honestly see anyone ever doing something quite so mad to a small hatch ever again?



Bear with me on this, yes there are lots of E92 M3's, but this will be remembered for its howling V8 and the fact it was the last N/A M3. And the GTS will be the ultra-rare desirable one.


And finally...(/shameless plug)



Anyone want to be seriously overcharged for a future classic? Anyone...?

Hmmm, here's my stab at this:
FORD GT: Possibly, it has kept its price around MSRP even now.

ATOM: The vast majority of people do not know what it is. While it is neat, it isn't popular enough.

Current Mustang: A retro car no matter how awesome will never be a classic. The newest thing approaching a classic is the Terminator from the early '00s.

Renault Clio V6: I have no idea on this one.

E92 M3: There is nothing particularly special about these. Great cars yes, but not a classic. The E30 M3 is a classic however (it was the first one).

EVO: 3rd gen. Sorry, but again while nice, this is a refresh. The original would be the one to get.
