Hardcore off-roading enthusiasts will often tell you that the optimal all-terrain rig would be a small 4X4 SUV with a narrow track width. If there’s any SUV that fits this description, it would be the Geo Tracker, and now, there’s one for sale in Michigan for just under $13,000.
Recently listed for sale on Cars.com, this particular Geo Tracker hardtop has just over 62,000 miles on the odometer, and features a white exterior paint job along with a grey interior colorway. According to the listing, this Tracker is a single-owner vehicle, and has been involved in one accident.
Rolling on 15-inch wheels, this two-door Tracker boasts a rear seat delete, potentially intended to allow for extra cargo room in the minuscule four-wheeler. Other features include front and rear tow hooks, a swing-open tailgate, and a full-size, rear-mounted spare tire.
In regard to powertrain, this Tracker rocks a Suzuki-based 1.6L I4 gasoline engine that chokes out a diminutive-by-modern-standards 80 horsepower and 94 pound-feet of torque. Output is routed to the ground, or mud, via a five-speed manual transmission, along with the aforementioned 4WD drivetrain. According to the listing, this little off-roader gets 23 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway.
For the all-terrain junkies out there, it’s worth noting that the 4WD system in the first-generation Tracker is legit, and features a two-speed transfer case and sturdy front- and rear-suspension setups.
Production of the Geo Tracker took place at the GM CAMI plant in Ontario, Canada. However, it’s worth noting that almost all 1989 and some 1990 models were manufactured in Japan and shipped to the U.S. due to delays at the CAMI assembly plant.
