    4X4, do you want an off-road SUV or do you just want all-wheel drive? If you just want the practicality and room like an all-wheel drive mini-van(without the mini-van), than I would suggest one of the car based crossovers. If you actually want to go off-road, that you should look at something like the Jeep Liberty or the Dodge Nitro.

    I think 4 cylinders are too small to move a SUV, unless it is the Toyota RAV4.

    I would go with a 6 cylinder Jeep Liberty for you. it is not too big, but comfortable enough for long trips or commutes. it can also be fun off road. you can get a 3 year old one without alot of miles for around $15000.00 almost half of what it was new.

    You should check out the new Jeep Compass. It’s a great 4×4 for the price!

    A 4 cylinder will give you a little bit better gas mileage than a V6, but you won’t get the same "off the line" speed as a V6. Really unless you’re planning on doing a lot of offroading or towing a trailer, a 4 cyl. would be sufficient.
