If you appreciate the ability to go off-road, there is no better vehicle than the Jeep Wrangler. The Wrangler is more than just an off-roading beast, though. Its versatility and trim options can suit any family on the go.

As part of the intuitive Uconnect system, the touch screen is customizable and allows you to access and control all your entertainment choices, including smartphone integration via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. A 10-square-foot panoramic sunroof is available.
“The current Ram 1500 is the best one yet but even going back a few years will get you a nice truck,” adds Moody.
