9 Best Used Jeeps Under $10,000

It’s not hard to see why Jeep is a brand with such strong loyalty. The Jeep brand stands out as an American icon for its adventurous SUVs and military heritage that influences every part of the brand to this day. Shoppers looking for a good deal on a used SUV has several Jeep models to choose from that can be found with a four-digit price tag.

Here are the 9 best Jeeps you can find on Autotrader under $10,000.

1. 1997-2001 Jeep Cherokee

1998 Jeep Cherokee XJ Front Left Side in Maroon

The “XJ” Jeep Cherokee is an icon among off-road enthusiasts for its rugged simplicity, everyday practicality, and serious off-road capabilities. A 1997 facelift made the XJ a little more modern while still retaining its classic look. The Cherokee is especially tough if you get one with the durable 4.0-liter inline-six engine.

2. 2014-2016 Jeep Cherokee

2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee Right Profile in White

The Jeep Cherokee is on this list twice because the older “XJ” and the newer “KL” are very different SUVs. The KL generation that was introduced for the 2014 model year is a more modern, road-friendly crossover than previous Cherokee models, but still has the off-road chops you’d expect when equipped with four-wheel drive.

3. 2007-2010 Jeep Commander

2006 Jeep Commander Front Left Side in Bronze

There’s an all-new Jeep Grand Cherokee L around the corner with three-row seating, but if you want a three-row Jeep on a budget, then consider a used Jeep Commander. The Commander was a family-friendly Jeep with strong off-road capabilities and an available Hemi V8 engine. Find a Jeep Commander for sale

4. 2011-2016 Jeep Compass

2016 Jeep Compass Front Left Side in Black

The small, car-like Jeep Compass is a good fit for drivers who want the Jeep aesthetic, but aren’t all that concerned with off-road prowess. Make no mistake, it’s a decent off-roader if you get four-wheel drive, but it’s more suited for the daily commute and its base engine is pretty good on gas. Find a Jeep Compass for sale

5. 2011-2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee

2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Front Left Side in Red

Early examples of the “WK2” generation of the Jeep Grand Cherokee are starting to get easier to find under the $10,000 mark. The “WK2” was a nice improvement over the “WK” it replaced with a classier aesthetic and a high-quality interior. The Grand Cherokee strikes a near-perfect balance of off-road capability and on-road manners making it a well-rounded SUV and a great value. Find a Jeep Grand Cherokee for sale

6. 2010-2012 Jeep Liberty

2012 Jeep Liberty Right Profile in Red

The Jeep Liberty was the brand’s compact SUV before the Cherokee name was reintroduced for 2014. The later examples of the Liberty are a good value on the used market as a practical, budget-friendly off-roader that can also easily be used for everyday driving. Find a Jeep Liberty for sale

7. 2011-2017 Jeep Patriot

2017 Jeep Patriot Front Left Side in Red

Mechanically similar to the Compass, the Jeep Patriot has a bit more of a traditional Jeep aesthetic. The boxy Patriot has many of the virtues of a small hatchback like good fuel economy and easy drivability while still retaining authentic Jeep character with good off-road chops and unmistakable styling.

8. 2015-2017 Jeep Renegade

2017 Jeep Renegade Front Left Side in Black

The subcompact Jeep Renegade is a small, but mighty SUV. Its boxy profile yields pretty good interior space for its class and it’s a clear leader in its class in off-road capabilities. It also provides balanced ride and handling on the street making it a versatile crossover. A fun color palette further adds to the Renegade’s quirky character. Find a Jeep Renegade for sale

9. 1996-2006 Jeep Wrangler

2006 Jeep Wrangler Left Profile in Silver

The Jeep Wrangler is famous for holding its value extremely well, which means you need to go back to the Bush years to easily find a used one with a four-digit price tag. However, that’s not necessarily a bad thing, because the “TJ” generation of the Wrangler was awesome. It has classic Jeep styling, legendary off-road capability, and you might be able to find a long-wheelbase “Unlimited” model in this price range. Find a Jeep Wrangler for sale
