Truly Off-Road-Ready Trucks, SUVs, and Crossovers You Can Buy in 2019

Car and Driver Logo By Eric Stafford of Car and Driver | Slide 1 of 35: In a world overrun with trucks, crossovers, and SUVs, you might think that any of them could be steered off paved roads, pointed down unbeaten paths, and driven over rocky terrain no problem. Not so fast. Many mainstream trucks and SUVs may tickle your off-roading fantasies with their rugged appearance and boldly named trim levels, such as Adventure (see the Toyota RAV4), but lack the necessary equipment to venture far off-road. We've compiled a list of legitimate off-road vehicles you can buy in 2019. Some have serious trail-ready add-ons, including low-range gearing and four-wheel drive, lifted suspensions, and locking differentials. Others benefit from advanced all-wheel-drive systems and increased underbody protection to elevate otherwise normal trucks and SUVs to dirt-readiness.
