2011 Jeep Wrangler Sahara 4x4 new car reviews

When the zombies attack--or the snow arrives--you may need a vehicle that can handle any terrain.

Better than: an old mail Jeep?
But not as good as: a ZAV
GRM Bang For The Buck Index: 66.47

Sometimes you need to go off-road--like, way off-road. When? Well, maybe when zombies are attacking. Or if you just need a killer shortcut. This is where the Jeep comes in.

We recently sampled the Wrangler Sahara 4x4, and it was a loaded one, too: two-tone leather seats ($700), USB port ($385), towing setup ($270), four-speed automatic ($825), media center/GPS navigation ($1035), three-piece hard top ($735) and a lot more.

What new vehicle rides like a covered wagon and has the creature comforts of 77 Pinto? It's the 2011 Jeep Wrangler Sahara 4x4, of course. Why do I want one so very badly? Because it makes the perfect beach and trail vehicle. The Sahara's time tested drivetrain and suspension are escape tools. The acronym "J-E-E-P" might as well stand for Get Me the Hell Out of Here!

I miss my old CJ5 right up until I get to the gas station. 13mpg wasn't too bad at $1 a gallon but really sucks at $4.
