Top 8 Off-Road Vehicles For The Outdoor Explorer

Everyone needs a way to get from point A to point B. While the everyday mode of transportation can vary from the subway, Uber, car or even by foot, the ones who want a weekend getaway in the great outdoors need a vehicle made for an adventure. No matter the setting or activity, these right vehicles can take you anywhere.


Jeep Wrangler Rubicon

The Jeep Wrangler first came about in the form of the Jeep CJ used by American forces during WWII. That meant the car had to be tough. For someone looking for a vehicle to take them on an adventure, it’s likely they’ll start by looking at Jeep. The Rubicon, which first came about in 2003, keeps up with the brand image Jeep has help for years. With a swaybar disconnect system that frees up the suspension for tough outdoor trails. The Jeep Wrangler is also one of the only vehicles on the list that has a Torx toolkit that allows you to remove the roof and doors to bring you closer to the outdoors.

Toyota Land Cruiser

The Toyota Land Cruiser is a big player in the off-roading game as it was Toyota’s original SUV and equivalent to the American-Made Jeep Wrangler. With its v8 engine, independent suspension system, and ability to manage both fast and slow speeds in on-road conditions, the Toyota Land Cruiser is made to handle the bumpy terrain and is a dependable choice for an outside adventure.

Ford Raptor

Built on the foundation of Ford’s most popular vehicle, the F150, the Raptor is built to handle almost any terrain with a comfortable interior design. Designed with a wide track and huge tire base, this truck is built to handle unpaved roads and trails with a built-in shock system to lessen the impact of a bumpy ride. The truck’s terrain management system allows a driver to select six different drive modes for varying surfaces and weather conditions. On top of that, the Raptor can go from zero to 60 in 5.5 seconds and can complete a quarter-mile in just 14.2 seconds.

Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk

It’s no surprise that Jeep has more than one vehicle on this list. The American-made company’s new Grand Cherokee Trailhawk is a state-of-the-art SUV that dominates the off-road vehicle game. The car totes a special air suspension and speed control system that allows for control of hill ascents and a special electronic slip differential. Aesthetically, the matte black detail on the hood helps to reduce the glare from the sun when trekking through outside obstacles. The Cherokee also boats the Quadra-Drive system which allows for 100 percent of the engine torque to be transferred to a single wheel if necessary.
