Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 4x4
I'll bet you didn't see this one coming. The Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 4x4 is available with a variety of roof options, including hard and soft variants that peel back easily to reveal the sky above. Maybe it's a stretch to consider this mountain goat a convertible, but I love it, so I'm counting it.

The good: The Jeep Wrangler Rubicon's 4x4 system is simple, but robust enough to tackle almost any terrain. High-tech touches such as electronic differential locks and an electronic antisway bar make it more fun to use without overcomplicating the Jeep's mission. Uconnect Bluetooth, USB, and an auxiliary input join a great-sounding audio system and two navigation options to bring the Wrangler into the 21st century.
The bad: Fuel economy is abysmal. On-road performance leaves much to be desired.
The bottom line: The 2012 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 4x4 retains the off-road chops that make this model legendary, but adds creature comforts that make it an adequate, though not particularly good, daily driver.
