Jeeps are a blast, but don't forget: The agile, open-top four-wheel-drive vehicle was born of functional military necessity. The 2014 Wrangler Willys Wheeler Edition embraces the simple aesthetic of its predecessors, combined with some very modern off-road hardware. "The idea behind it was to get back to basics," says Mark Allen, head of Jeep design. But there's nothing basic about the Willys' 285-horsepower, torque-heavy V-6 engine and shift-on-the-fly 4x4 system, which allows you to drive virtually anywhere. It's all wrapped up with some cool retro touches, like a gloss-black grille and throwback logos that include the classic 4-wheel drive tailgate decal. [From $25,795; jeep.com]
