Looking for a vehicle that's perfect for off-roading? You've got a lot of options today. Chevrolet, Toyota and Jeep have all been putting out some fantastic models designed to suit anyone's driving and lifestyle.
1. Chevrolet Colorado ZR2
A versatile mid-sized truck, the Chevy Colorado can be customized through a variety of special editions, trim packages, and optional upgrades. The Chevy Colorado is a rare mid-sized diesel that gets 22 / 30 MPG on the city and highway and has all the traditional benefits of a diesel engine. The ZR2 has been specifically designed and kitted out to be an off-road vehicle, though it also functions well as an all-purpose truck.
An upgraded suspension, improved traction control, wider wheel base, and locking front and rear differentials all make the truck perfect for smooth handling on any terrain. For those who are looking for more of an everyday truck, other variants of the Chevrolet Colorado are available.
2. Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro
The 4Runner is one of the most iconic off-roading vehicles out today, and it's only enhanced by the TRD Pro line. The TRD Pro line is an optional trim level of the Tundra, Tacoma, and 4Runner. This includes a vastly improved suspension, with Bilstein shocks and Eibach coils. The 4Runner comes with ground clearance and a wide stance, which makes it perfect for really aggressive off-roading on unpredictable terrain. This is rounded out with Goodrich All-Terrain tires, which are durable and consistent on any surface.
3. Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Hard Rock Edition
Everyone knows the Jeep Wrangler. With a solid, easily customized body, perfect control, and advanced suspension system, the Jeep Wrangler is generally used by those who want to be able to go anywhere a set of wheels can take them. The Jeep Wrangler is further improved with the Hard Rock Edition.
The Hard Rock Edition includes: bumpers with removable caps, blacked-out trim, red tow hooks, and rock rails. The advantage of the Jeep Wrangler is that everything can be swapped out, added to, and customized. The Jeep Wrangler is the perfect vehicle for those who don't just want to go off-roading but also want to indulge in a lot of outdoor activities: climbing, hiking, surfing, and more.
4. Toyota Land Cruiser
The Land Cruiser is an off-road vehicle that can still function as an excellent day-to-day driver, especially for those who have families or those who otherwise need a lot of cargo space. The Land Cruiser can handle even extreme terrain with a suspension that is designed to "float" over rough environments. Toyota's special Kinetic Dynamic Suspension can adapt depending on the terrain the vehicle is on, loosening during off-roading and tightening during on-roading.
The technology behind the Land Cruiser makes it the best option for those who want to be able to drive in luxury and style both off and on the road. Of course, it also comes at a premium price point.
There are many incredible off-roading vehicles available; it all depends on the type of driving you want to do and whether you want a truck that can "do it all."
