We recommend the Sport trim with the twin-turbo V6 engine if you can find one in this price range. Find a Ford Edge for sale

This is the generation that introduced the popular four-door Wrangler Unlimited, and a 2011 face-lift gave this Jeep a revised interior with more standard features making it more comfortable to drive on the road. Find a Jeep Wrangler for sale
