Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 4xe

2021 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 4xe Sahara

Consumer Guide Automotive Jeep has a complicated and fascinating history going back about 80 years, to the battlefields of World War II. Civilian Jeeps, or CJs, were available almost immediately after WWII hostilities ceased, and today’s Wrangler can trace its lineage directly back to that first CJ-2A. Now, for 2021, Wrangler enters a new era with the addition of a plug-in-hybrid variant: the 4xe.

2004 Scion xB

2004 Scion xB

As an upstart automotive brand aimed squarely at young buyers, Scion was full of promise. Toyota launched the Scion nameplate in 2003, in an attempt to engage automobile customers earlier in life and bring a little spark into the somewhat stodgy environs of the typical American Toyota dealership. The first Scion vehicles started showing up in select California Toyota dealerships in summer 2003, and the brand expanded nationwide in early 2004.

2021 Ford Bronco Sport (Badlands model shown)

Not only has Ford finally pulled the wraps off its long-awaited revival of the Bronco (and added a first-ever four-door Bronco to boot), it’s also giving its all-new off-road-ready compact SUV a smaller sibling.

25 Late-Model Collectible Cars

1985 Buick Riviera Convertible

While styling, performance, and rarity have been the traditional tickets to collectibility, vehicles that offer features—styling or otherwise—that are monuments to their era or simply aren’t likely to reappear also have a shot. It’s why we believe cars of the Fifties are so treasured today; their chrome, tall fins, and sheer mass so perfectly characterized the jet-aged optimism of the time, and it’s almost certain their likes will ever be seen again.
