11: Geo Tracker
The original compact UTE to hit the mainstream was the Geo Tracker. Released by GM as a way to entice younger car buyers into the showroom, the Tracker was quite the popular vehicle for almost a decade. As time went on, there was a subtle upgrade to the Geo Tracker that made it more appealing, including changing the nameplate to Chevrolet in 1998.
If you are looking for open-air fun at the fraction of the cost of a Jeep Wrangler price, you can’t go wrong with the Geo Tracker. From the reliability to the cheap cost of replacement parts the Geo Tracker is everything many cost-focused SUV buyers are looking for.
