This car is no exception. It definitely has more power than I'd ever need, and still achieves better than 30 miles per gallon on the freeway.

Jeep Wranglers appeal to me.  From everything I’ve read, the Wrangler is the best off-road mass produced vehicle available to consumers.  Some might argue that the Ford Raptor is just as capable but, as I have yet to test drive a Raptor, I can’t address that assertion.

As often as I’ve envisioned travelling the highways in a non-slide Prevost Coach, I’ve envisioned a four wheel drive being towed behind.  The J…
