The 2021 Nissan Armada Arrives as a Massive Leap Forward

For years the Nissan Armada has sat on top of the brand’s U.S. lineup as the largest, most powerful, and highly capable SUV. Despite this, it has never been one of the best sellers in its segment.

Broken 2020 Land Rover Defender Becomes Literally Unfixable

Last week we caught wind of The Fast Lane Car’s broken 2020 Land Rover Defender. In short, the brand-new Defender broke almost immediately after delivery.

Is a Jeep Wrangler Hellcat More Than Just a Pipe Dream?

The unveiling of the 2021 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 opens the floodgates for some interesting questions. For starters, is a Jeep Wrangler Hellcat even a possibility? Given FCA’s track record of jamming Dodge’s 700-hp Hellcat engine into just about anything, the question is not unfounded. However, being an off-roading SUV, the Wrangler faces a unique …

2021 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 Arrives as a 470-HP Off-Roading SUV

It’s been less than six months since we first saw the V8-powered Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 Concept.

The 2021 Land Rover Discovery Gets a Refresh but It’s Still Ugly

There is no denying that the Land Rover Discovery is an extremely capable off-roading SUV. Since its debut in 1989, the Discovery has served as an off-road-focused SUV while the Range Rovers served as the luxury off-roaders. However, the introduction of the third-generation Discovery in 2017 was met with relentless criticism. The complaints centered largely …

Hyundai’s Santa Cruz Unibody Frame Doesn’t Stop It From Off-Roading

I have been a bit critical of Hyundai for not producing an off-road variant of the Palisade. Granted, the SUV is pretty capable in stock form to take on the rigors of shuttling people back and forth, even over a dirt road. However, a true off-road or overlanding capable trim level would add to the …

No one ever said overlanding or off-roading couldn’t be done in luxury. For one, quite a few owners have taken vehicles like the Audi Allroad and Porsche 924 rather far from paved roads.
