Top Picks for Off Roaders

Getting to your favorite campground often requires some trailblazing — and for many drivers, that's half the fun. We looked at SUVs and pickups that will take owners off the beaten path and then some. Then came the subjective considerations, such as dirt-crawling prowess, a pliable suspension and a comfortable interior. Because many of these cars are not crash-tested, they are not drawn from our list of Best Bets.

 Best New Car for Off Roaders
2014 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor
Starting MSRP $45,610

When you see a Ford F-150 Raptor you know what it's built for. Big wheels and tires, an aggressive stance and a racing suspension setup all make it clear that this truck loves to play in the dirt. But to think this truck is just about desert racing would be to hugely undervalue its impressive capabilities. Not only can this pickup carry nearly 1,200 pounds of payload and tow a large boat or camper trailer, it also has a rear locking differential, front Torsen limited-slip and a pair of cameras to give the driver a full view of the trail. In the world of go-fast and go-slow exploring, the Raptor has no equal.
 Best Deal for Off Roaders
2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek
Starting MSRP $22,820

Blending SUV and crossover strengths, the Subaru XV Crosstrek may not be the most rough and rugged player from our nominees list, but it's a great choice if you love the outdoors and need to carry a family load of camping gear. We like Crosstrek because it has a sportier, higher ground clearance, offers a responsive and efficient 2.0-liter engine and transmission combination, and delivers a surprising amount of usable and reconfigurable storage space inside. Pricing starts at just more than $22,000 with fully equipped versions for less than $25,000. Of course, this won't get you up the nastiest trails, but it will get you to the trailhead in style and comfort.

Suggestions for Off Roaders
2013 Land Rover LR4  Recommended for Off Roaders Land Rover LR4 (2013)
Starting MSRP $50,595

The Land Rover LR4 has always been a strong contender, with a great four-wheel-drive system and plenty of seating and cargo space. Although the new supercharged V-6 is impressive, pricing can be steep. Still, a good choice for foul-weather family travel.

2014 Land Rover Range Rover  Recommended for Off Roaders Land Rover Range Rover (2014)
Starting MSRP $83,545

The Land Rover Range Rover was one of our top vote getters and for good reason. It is ultra-luxurious inside and offers great capability everywhere else, with one of the smartest traction control systems around. If you can get past the price, you can conquer any obstacle.

2014 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque  Recommended for Off Roaders Land Rover Range Rover Evoque (2014)

This luxury compact is the brand's smallest vehicle, yet it offers a good amount of foul-weather capability. The Land Rover Range Rover Evoque's all-wheel-drive system delivers strong traction, the 2.0-liter inline-four is supercharged, and it has a class-leading nine-speed transmission. We like its looks too.

2014 Mercedes-Benz G-Class  Recommended for Off Roaders Mercedes-Benz G-Class (2014)
Starting MSRP $115,125

The Mercedes-Benz GL-Class is one of the last remaining extreme-capability vehicles around, but it has a lofty price of admission. At more than $100,000, this boxy SUV offers all the right extreme 4x4 ingredients: three locking differentials, two live axles and one monster V-8.

2014 Subaru Outback  Recommended for Off Roaders Subaru Outback (2014)
Starting MSRP $24,320

One of the most civilized offerings in this class, the Subaru Outback has a smart all-wheel-drive system, a choice of two higher mileage boxer engines and a versatile interior layout. It's probably the best all-around player in this group.

2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser  Recommended for Off Roaders Toyota FJ Cruiser (2014)
Starting MSRP $27,990

This is the last year of production for the Toyota FJ Cruiser, and we'll miss its modern retro good looks, triple windshield wipers and cavernous backseat. This fun runabout is a great choice for young, outgoing buyers who like their SUVs to have personality.

2014 Toyota Land Cruiser  Recommended for Off Roaders Toyota Land Cruiser (2014)
Starting MSRP $79,615

With one of the more famous vehicle names around, the Toyota Land Cruiser offers rugged capability with a comfort-driven interior. This is a big, heavy vehicle and can feel small with a lot of luggage and several passengers.

2014 Volvo XC70  Recommended for Off Roaders Volvo XC70 (2014)
Starting MSRP $35,415

Commonly call the Cross Country, the Volvo XC70 wagon's greatest strength is in its cargo volume; that means plenty of camping gear. Not really a true off-roader, the XC70 is the best at straddling the crossover and station wagon segments.
