How many 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee 5.9 were made?

When I was driving the other day I saw a 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee 5.9 and fell in love. I’m assuming because they were a limited edition there weren’t that many made, but I’m hoping I’m wrong. How many Grand Cherokee 5.9s did Jeep make?

Unfortunately, you’re right! The Jeep Grand Cherokee 5.9 Limited was only produced for the 1998 model year with more performance and luxury than the regular Limited. Of the nearly 250,000 Grand Cherokees manufactured in 1998, less than 15,000 were 5.9s Limiteds.
Equipped with a Magnum 5.9 L V8 engine that produces 245 horsepower and 345 pounds of torque capable of accelerating from zero to 60 mph, the Grand Cherokee 5.9 Limited was the fastest SUV available in 1998. It’s no wonder Petersen’s 4-Wheel & Off-Road magazine named the Grand Cherokee 5.9 Limited vehicle of the year.
On top of the available options offered with the standard Grand Cherokee, the1998 5.8 Limited included exclusive luxury features such as:
  • Unique grain wood accents
  • Premium calf leather interior upholstery
  • Chrome exhaust tip
  • Five-star wheels
  • Leather-wrapped shifting knob and emergency brake
  • Exclusive mesh front grille
  • 6-channel premium stereo system with rear-door subwoofers and cargo area soundbar
You may have to search for a while to find a 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee 5.9 Limited in good condition but once you do, the typical listing price is around $3,168. However, that doesn’t mean you need to pay the asking price. When you’re buying a used car, don’t just settle for what the seller is asking.
Check Kelley BlueBook and look for the fair market value which ranges between $1,901 and **$3,434 for the 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee 5.9 Limited.
