your second point takes out the wrangler, cherokee, and grand cherokee, maybe even the bottom 3. For the most part Jeeps and MPG don't mix.

I believe the new Cherokee is rated 21 city/28 highway with a 2.4 4wd. Not horrible. And not a bad rig as far as new Jeeps go.

I've yet to see a new Cherokee in the 3-8k price range the OP wants to be in either though.

Older Liberty will fit the bill.

If you are close to Raleigh, I know where you can get a well maintained 2006 Liberty 4x4.
