4) Jeep Wrangler Rubicon (Tie): 10.8 inches
Another Jeep takes number four on the top 25 ground clearance crossovers and SUVs list. the Jeep Wrangler JL Rubicon gained some ground clearance over the preceding JK model. As a result, this Wrangler manages 10.8 inches of ground clearance — exactly the same as the Grand Cherokee. However, you also get more dedicated off-road kit here, like locking front and rear differentials and an electronically disconnecting front sway bar for better articulation. Unfortunately, it isn’t cheap. Prices start at $37,945 before destination for a two-door Rubicon.
This is one of the few options where you can have a six-speed manual. However, you can only have it with the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6. In the Wrangler, that engine puts out 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. The 2.0-liter turbocharged engine puts out 270 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. Unlike the Pentastar, you can only get that engine with an eight-speed automatic transmission.
