The Classic Jeep Gets an Upgrade

A collector's guide to classic Jeeps.


For 2012, the Wrangler Unlimited has been given a make-under worthy of the original 1941 Jeep: Its interior is elegantly stripped-down yet comfortable. And the new Wrangler is up-to-date where it counts: The engine is an economical 3.6-liter V6. It's the rare authentic off-roader that cuts a stylish figure on any city street.

Base price: $25,545
