2010 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited review By Sara Lacey

As parents we mark milestones that show our kids are growing (not fast enough some days and way too fast on others). Just like some people mark their kid's height on a wall or doorjamb, a MotherProof.com reviewer's kids grow in and out of cars. Case in point: the 2010 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara. I reviewed the 2007 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon, which has four doors, and found it difficult for a mom with younger kids to manage. Back then, I had wished that my kids were older so I could embrace that SUV, and like a parent who couldn't wait for that first day of kindergarten, that day is here. And here I am, wishing I owned a 2010 Wrangler Unlimited because it was so much fun for my whole family.

My test car, the Wrangler Unlimited Sahara, had a V-6 engine that was plenty powerful, if not peppy. This Jeep isn't made for massive acceleration on the highway; where it really shines is off-road. It also performs well with city driving. If you're a serious off-roader you'll want to skip the four-door Wrangler Unlimited and go for the two-door Wrangler.

The base model, the Wrangler Unlimited Sport, starts at $23,410. The Sahara trim level starts at $28,905, but my test car cost $37,080. The $8,175 price difference comes from a variety of options packages. I liked my test car's Mopar Chrome Edition package ($1,035), which added a chrome exhaust tip, fuel filler door, taillamp guards and side steps. This added a little flash to this usually quiet vehicle. In addition to all the bling, there was yet another chrome package that added a chrome grille and side mirrors. That was another $485.
