Well, this is the dingy towing area so why all the big truck comparisons .....LOL !

The Jeep Wrangler is standard ! It is great for its intended purpose, and an internationally recognized vehicle! Those who have them love them, those who don’t ?? Jealous maybe ? Who knows ?

To the poster who wrote about “ test driving one” , and writing not intended for interstates ? I’ve had mine to NW Va and the Keys, running smoothly !

To the poster writing about his / her Ford ecoboost truck going anywhere Jeeps go ??? I also have a Ford F 150 Eco......and NO, it can’t ! Not if I wanted to keep my bumpers attached !

Why people always get their blood pressure up, and want to compare “ other” vehicles to Jeep Wranglers is funny !

Get what you want as a Toad ! Get what’s best for you, your needs, your wants, etc !

The Jeep is .....well......a JEEP !

Hard to find "deals" on Jeep Wranglers. Here in the NW, if you and one for less than $15K, used, it either has a ton of miles or is pretty much used up. We looked for a while and went through all the monkey motions and after looking at dealer prices, and sticker shock, went back to the used market. Finally found a 2008 JK Sahara, 2Dr, that we could tow with out MBS Sprinter. Paid $18K for it, was a fair price for 70K miles and spotless inside out and no damage anywhere with good records check. Where I live, on Craigslist, you see used jeeps that owners are asking upwards of $40K for. Granted - they are tricked out, lifted, and god knows what else, but for a toad, stock Jeep does really well. We towed ours through Or, Id, WY, Mt, Co, and Ut last year. No issues and for the two of us - it's perfect. Small dog gets the back seat as I would never fit in there. If you are going to look used, and something beyond the basic JK, and want some creature comforts, this is the kind of pricing to expect. As others have posted, if you decide to sell it later, you will not lose much money on it as they are in demand. And with the new JL models coming out, JK's still are being sought after. Also, I have the smaller V6 engine, and it does fine. Not a powerhouse, but it does the job and I average around 21 - 22 mpg. Real happy with our unplanned purchase.

We have a '13 Sahara 4dr and have towed it since buying it new with no problems. Shifter in Park and the other in neutral. Steering does not lock and it follows like a faithful dog.
It is the only Jeep model I would consider. We have drive it off road on the farm, national forest trails in N Georgia, dirt roads, highways and interstates and it drives ad rides great. It has the hard roof, but came with the rag top and the hard roof. My wife is handicapped with MS but she loves to get off in the woods when we trail ride. Her wheelchair fits in the rear compartment area and if we have friends who want to go, they ride in the back seat. Still room for a few lunch basket and cokes. The only thing I would change would be to add a 6th gear and increase gas mileage a bit. We get a little better than 21 on the interstates around N Georgia area

Update from OP:

I negotiated with several Jeep dealers and at the last minute I got cold feet and picked a Subaru Crosstrek. I like the Wrangler a lot, but I don't really need its hardcore off road ability. The Crosstrek has AWD and 8.7 inch ground clearance which I think will allow me to run around the light trails that I want to visit while travelling in a motorhome. I will have to pull it on a trailer, but it's a nice daily driver for when I'm working and I will save about $200 per month over the Jeep so I'm willing to do the extra work of pulling it on the trailer. FYI, I got a new 2018 with automatic transmission and not a lot extra for $285 per month with 0 down on a 36-month lease. I can always buy it at the end of the lease, but I'll probably want something new in 3 years.

So there ya go. It seems that the OP chose to buy a toad THAT HE HAS TO TRAILER rather than pay the ridiculous prices for a used Jeep.

Jeep Wranglers and Tacoma trucks are on the top of the list to purchase new because of they retain there value. We have owned wranglers for probably 30 years. We just sold our 2010 wrangler unlimited for $22,000 we paid new $27,000. Not bad $5,000 for 7 years of use. Granted we kept it in like new condition and it only had 35,000 miles.
Looking at used wrangler prices the purchaser got a great deal.
Similar payback on all our wranglers. Fun to drive and easy to tow.
