When your idea of fun is to head out and see if your vehicle can handle the rocky trails, the deep sunk mud or can make it through the thick sand, all in the name if bringing you to a remote location that most of us never get to see from the paved roads, you need a serious off road vehicle. Many of the off road vehicles we used to buy have gone the way of providing creature comfort over the capabilities needed, which is fine, but when you still want to take a ride in an area that is going to challenge you and the abilities of your vehicle, this is the list you want to pay attention to.

Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro – This is an SUV that has the off road ability and the equipment you want to be able to ride high and tough all day. With a new suspension added to this beauty you will have an extra inch of wheel travel to make it over obstacles that were just a little too much for this beast in the past. The 4Runner has been one of the favorites for off roading for many years and with this package you know you have the right vehicle for the job.
Nissan Xterra Pro-4X – While many SUVs have gone the softer route of being family haulers, this beauty maintains it rush of power by being one of the most impressive off road vehicles you can find. When you need a tough utility vehicle that has all the equipment to give you the ride you need and reach the destination desired, this is one that can get the job done right.

If you want a new one look to the 2017 lineup, but if you’re looking for the previous model there are several to be found with the massive engine under the hood giving you all the power you need while the rest of the truck handles the performance for you.
