For reference, our stock 4dr Sahara with the hardtop weighted 4520 with about 8 gals of gas. And, that was without the base plate etc.

My 2005 Wrangler Unlimited has a 6 speed manual.
I had an earlier Wrangler (don't remember what year, it was long ago) that had a 5 speed manual.
Other than that, I do not know for sure.

2005 was the first year of the 6 speed manual.

As mentioned above, the Ford C-Max is a good option as it is a hybrid. We bought ours in 2017 and love it, getting 47-50 MPG. I do not believe Ford is making them anymore, so you would have to settle for a used one. They come in a plug in model also.

Regardless of your toad dilemma, your intended use doesn’t make sense to me.
Aside from RVs, the rest of the units you mention don’t or typically don’t have square trailer hitch receivers, so you can’t tow the toad anyways.
Don’t be pulled into thinking you’ll have some clamp on receiver system that will work well, or at all.
