The Jeep Wrangler is the default choice for a new off-road vehicle, and for good reason: For the money, there are few trucks more capable. What if you don't want a Wrangler, though? Perhaps you want something more luxurious, or something with a bed. Or maybe you don't want to wait for the next-generation Wrangler. Here are some of the best bets, according to you.

Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro

Toyota gave its entire TRD Pro line Fox Racing shocks for 2019, making them incredibly capable for all kinds of off-road adventures. The Tacoma remains the coolest of the bunch, and can now be optioned with a sweet A-pillar mounted snorkel.

Ariel Nomad

No, it's not a truck. Some might not even consider it a real car. But the Ariel Nomad can definitely handle itself in an off-road environment. Meaty tires, long-travel suspension, and a tube-frame full body cage mean the it can tackle just about anything you throw at it.

Ford Ranger Raptor

It's still not clear whether Ford will bring the new Ranger Raptor to the United States, but it still deserves a spot on this list. Like its bigger F-150 sibling, the Ranger Raptor gets Fox Racing shocks, mean looks, and a collection of off-road drive modes.

Chevrolet Colorado ZR2

Thanks to locking differentials front and rear, and a set of Multimatic's incredible spool-valve dampers, the Colorado ZR2 is incredibly capable off road. You have to know what you're doing to make the best of it, though. We like it that way. It's old school.

Land Rover Discovery

Land Rover's newest Discovery ditches its predecessor's ladder-frame in favor of unibody construction, but it hasn't gone totally soft. Mostly thanks to Land Rovers clever off-road electronics, the new Discovery is better off-road than most of its buyers will ever realize.

Mercedes-Benz
Mercedes-Benz G550

Yes, pricing for the Mercedes-Benz G550 starts at more than double the most expensive Wrangler, however, there's no arguing with its off-road abilities. With three locking differentials, there are very few places you can't go in a G-Wagen. Also like the wrangler, the G-Wagen is a true icon.

Land Rover Range Rover

There is no car on the planet that offers such a compelling mix of luxury and serious off-road capability than the Range Rover. Of course, few who own these actually take them off road, but they're missing out. It's as good, if not better on loose surfaces than in urban areas Range Rovers are usually found.

Jeep
Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk

The Wrangler is Jeep's most capable off-roader, but it's far from luxurious. With the recent addition of a Trailhawk package, Jeep added some all-terrain performance to the more h Grand Cherokee, striking a nice balance between an on- and off-road SUV. Think of it as a Range Rover on a budget.

Toyota
Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro

Over 30 years after it first went into production, the Toyota 4Runner has modernized with the times, but it's stayed true to its original concept. It's one of the last truly old-school SUVs in an era where most of its competitors are more car than truck. Opt for the TRD Pro package and you get a locking differential, Fox Racing shocks, and some seriously mean looks.

Toyota Land Cruiser

The Range Rover's only true competitor is the Toyota Land Cruiser and its Lexus cousin, the LX. It's big, comfortable, luxurious, and capable, thanks to all sorts of electronic off-roading features. Of course you'll pay for all that goodness, though: the Toyota starts at $83,825, and the Lexus is $88,880.

Ford F-150 Raptor

With the Raptor, Ford essentially offers an F-150 exactly how you'd modify it if you were building a crazy off-roading pickup. It even has a dedicated "Baja Mode" and that tells you everything you need to know about this truck.

RAM Power Wagon

When we first drove the RAM Power Wagon back in 2014, we said it was pretty much the Jeep Wrangler Pickup that we'd been waiting for. Of course, we know that the Wrangler pickup is finally on its way, but with angry looks and serious performance, you shouldn't overlook the Power Wagon.

Nissan
Nissan Titan XD PRO-4X Diesel

Nissan hasn't put its Raptor-fighting Titan Warrior into production yet, so its best off-road option is the Titan XD PRO-4X. Naturally, it comes with Bilstein shocks, a locking rear differential, but what sets this truck apart is its optional Cummins V8 diesel engine.

Subaru
Subaru Outback

I know what you're thinking: The Subaru Outback sticks out like a sore thumb on this list, and you're right. It doesn't have crazy ground clearance, or knobby tires, or a locking differential, but the Outback is surprisingly useful off road. You wouldn't take an Outback to Moab, but it's perfect for light trails.
