Jeep Wrangler Named Top 10 Car for Recent Graduates

The Jeep Wrangler has been named one of the Top 10 Best Cars for Recent College Graduates by AutoTrader in 2020! Jeep Wrangler has long been a 'top dream car in America' and pre-owned Wranglers are now more affordable than ever.

AutoTrader chooses their Top 10 from both new and used models that offer stylish good looks, great fuel economy, current tech features and of course, affordability. The best have a combination of some, or all, of the above!

The class of 2020 is graduating in unprecedented times, but that doesn't mean they can't have a ride to match their accomplishments. The Wrangler offers a fun driving experience along with practicality and durability.

The Jeep Wrangler was originally designed and built by the American Bantam Car Company in the 1940s at the request of the US Military, which wanted a vehicle that was rugged, light-weight and could travel easily over rough terrain. It was officially released for civilians in 1945, under the name CJ, or Civilian Jeep and became the Jeep Wrangler as we know it in 1986.

This off-road icon has long been much loved for it's memorable look and potential for fun. However, the Jeep Wrangler is more than just head-turning good looks.

The Jeep Wrangler is a capable, truck-like vehicle with excellent handling and a lot of customization options. It has solid axles and body-on-frame design complete with removable tops so you can go off-road with or without shade... or windows, or doors! The newer JL generation offers three engine options, five roof designs and about a dozen trim levels or special editions.

As for the interior, upgrades have been made since the early years to accommodate for high-tech infotainment systems, including 7 - 8.4 in touchscreens, as well as more comfy, and always roomy, leather seating options.

Choose the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited for a 4-door option with more room and comfort for daily driving and commuting. Take it to work no matter the weather, then use it top-down on weekends to head out of town, and off the beaten path.

AutoTrader specifically mentions starting your used Wrangler search with the model years 2012-2017, for maximum affordability, as many options are available for around $20k. In 2012, the Wrangler finally got standard 4-wheel drive, which means any year since then will offer not only practicality, but full off-road capability.

However, the new 2020 Jeep Wrangler starts at just $35k, making it relatively affordable in today's market. Plus, with ultra-low financing options available, this year may be the best yet to invest in a stand-out vehicle that will last for years to come.
