Now is a great time to escape the hustle and bustle of juggling work, home, kids, and pandemic scares… take an afternoon or two to go off-roading! Need a vehicle for that? We have a few favorites that will get you out of the house and on top of a mountain… or wherever else you’d like to go that doesn’t involve other people!
2020 JEEP WRANGLER
– Best Overall –
The Jeep Wrangler started as a WWII military vehicle and while there have been many changes through the years, this is still the best off-road vehicle on the market. It has the same luxuries and features offered in modern vehicles but still has the capability to remove the doors, the top, and fold down the windshield for big adventures. The rollbar is an important safety feature of Jeeps, preventing the occupants from being crushed by the body of the vehicle should it roll over. Starting at just under $30K.
2020 LAND ROVER RANGE ROVER
– Best Luxury –
When you’re riding in a Range Rover, you’re riding in style, luxury, AND in an off-road vehicle. The cabin says posh while the engine and performance say, “Where’s the mud mountain? Time to climb.” Plenty of room in the cargo and lots of techy features to play with makes this SUV perfect for families who crave adventure and need a little extra pampering. It will set you back a pretty penny though: base models start at around $100K and the top model SV Autobiography comes out to about $180K.
2021 FORD F-150 RAPTOR
– Best Upcoming Truck –
Along with having impressive specs and capabilities, this truck is a mobile work station for the off-roading business person on-the-go. Perfect for construction sites and surveying rugged terrain with its all-terrain tires and long-travel suspension. The current model has a tow capacity of 8000 pounds and can haul up to 1200 pounds in the cargo… so we’re assuming the 2021 model will be even better. Starts at $55K.
2020 RAM 1500 REBEL
– Best Truck –
When you think of buying a truck, you mostly think about how much it can haul, carry, and the services it can perform. (Most people don’t think about how many friends will ask them for moving help so keep that in mind too.) But the Ram 1500 Rebel throws in comfort, style, and lots of space in the cabin. Equipped with a coil-spring suspension, you’ll feel like you’re riding on a cloud over even the roughest terrain. And the price doesn’t hurt either. According to CAR AND DRIVER, it is the highest ranking and cheapest truck out there, starting just under $30K.
2020 KIA TELLURIDE
– Bargain Price –
This crossover SUV has it all and blows the competition out of the water. Great for large families or road trippers, this 3-row seated vehicle is spacious and ready for action! With its V-6 engine and all-wheel drive, you’ll have power and sleek design. The interior is just as impressive with gorgeous features and stellar build & materials. Both back rows of seats fold down flat for a gigantic amount of storage space for hauling bulky items. The Insurance Institute of Highway Safety awarded this Kia as a Top Safety Pick. Starts at around $33K.
