  1. Jeep Wrangler

    1. Jeep Wrangler

    What Edmunds.com says:
    The 2011 Jeep Wrangler makes little sense as an everyday driver, yet its quirky character and unbeatable off-road prowess continue to hold appeal for some.

  2. Nissan Xterra

    2. Nissan Xterra

    What Edmunds.com says:
    The 2011 Nissan Xterra may lack the funky styling and unique features of its off-roading competitors, but it's the easiest to live with on those days when you're not rock-crawling and mud-splashing.

  3. Toyota FJ Cruiser

    3. Toyota FJ Cruiser

    What Edmunds.com says:
    It's not the most versatile choice available, but if distinctive looks and outstanding off-road ability are important to you in a midsize SUV, the 2011 Toyota FJ Cruiser is hard to top.

  4. Toyota Tacoma

    4. Toyota Tacoma

    What Edmunds.com says:
    The 2011 Toyota Tacoma is a top choice in the midsize pickup segment thanks to its highly capable nature and wide array of configurations.

  5. Nissan Frontier

    5. Nissan Frontier

    What Edmunds.com says:
    The 2011 Nissan Frontier is a top pick in the compact-pickup segment thanks to its brawny nature, relatively nimble handling and innovative features.

  6. Jeep Liberty

    6. Jeep Liberty

    What Edmunds.com says:
    The 2011 Jeep Liberty can certainly hack it in the bushes, but it struggles on the pavement. Interior quality and fuel economy also leave much to be desired.

  7. Ford Ranger

    7. Ford Ranger

    What Edmunds.com says:
    The 2011 Ford Ranger may have an affordable starting price and decent fuel economy going for it, but its dated design and cramped passenger cabin just can't compete with its more modern rivals.

  8. Suzuki Equator

    8. Suzuki Equator

    What Edmunds.com says:
    The 2010 Suzuki Equator is an enticing choice for a midsize pickup, but the relative scarcity of dealers should also be considered.

  9. Dodge Dakota

    9. Dodge Dakota

    What Edmunds.com says:
    When it comes to towing, the 2011 Dodge Dakota is still top dog among midsize pickups. Unfortunately, the competition beats the Dakota when it comes to affordability and refinement.
