Your best bet for off-roading is a 4x4 SUV. Depending on the model that pleases you most, though, you might have to shop around a bit to find a good used one. That’s simply because off-roaders typically become very attached to their rigs, and often continue to drive them until they’re simply no longer drivable.

That said, you’ll probably enjoy looking for just the right off-road vehicle for you. Our favorites are the Nissan Infiniti QX80, Jeep Grand Cherokee, Jeep Wrangler, Lexus GX 460, and Nissan XTerra.

  • Nissan Infiniti QX80: This is a huge, luxurious SUV with a super-comfortable ride, but when it comes to off-roading, it delivers the goods. In auto mode, the rear-wheel drive delivers torque to the front as required. Once you shift into four-wheel drive, though, the torque is split 50/50. Traction control automatically slows unruly wheels if you start to slip.

  • Jeep Grand Cherokee: For two decades, the Grand Cherokee has proven itself when it comes to off-road capability. With the Adventure II package, you’ll benefit from an air-lift suspension with an incredible 10.4 inch ground clearance and 20 inch water fording, meaning you can go pretty much anywhere you want.

  • Jeep Wrangler: For hard-core off-roaders, the Wrangler has traditionally been the rig of choice. The base model is perfectly respectable, but if you want to take it up a notch, go with the Rubicon model. It includes electronic locking differentials, and is equal even to the demands of its namesake, the Rubicon trail. It’s not the most comfortable vehicle for daily driving, but off-road, it shines.

  • Lexus GX 460: This luxury SUV might look gorgeous, but don’t let the appearance fool you. It’s build to a full frame with a center differential for 50/50 torque split when the going gets tough. Add to that the KDDS (Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System) that reduces chassis roll, and you have a highly reliable off-road vehicle for both novices and pros.

  • Nissan Xterra: The Xterra is an affordable SUV with real off-road capability. Make sure, though, that you buy a 4x4 model – the XTerra is also available as a two-wheel drive that looks nice, but won’t give you what you need off-road. The 4x4 model, though, can handle some pretty tough trails.

Honda Accord - Brake Pads Replacement (Rear) - Phoenixville, Pennsylvania
I specifically asked for Bernie to come back, since I was so pleased with the work he did on our other car. This time I got to meet Bernie personally. He is a kind family-man who exhibited the quiet confidence of someone you would expect with the 50 years of automotive experience that he has. I felt very comfortable giving him the key to my car. Two of my kids (ages two and four) came out to greet him, since they remembered him from his first visit. Bernie is great around kids and was very kind to my two-year old son who was trying to "help" Bernie do his job. Thanks again, Bernie!
Honda Odyssey - Brake Pads Replacement (Front, Rear) - Phoenixville, Pennsylvania
I was very pleased with Bernie's work, professionalism, and courteousness. Best brake job I have ever had, and I have had many done (and several done myself, but not on this vehicle). This was a maintenance appointment -- not a repair of something broken -- so I was surprised when the brakes felt so much better after Bernie did the work. You can really see the care he took with our vehicle when I examined everything after he was finished. Thanks, Bernie!

Breck was awesome! He called ahead of time and asked if he could arrive early. He was friendly and easy to talk to. He made me feel comfortable with the service he was going to provide and explained things clearly to me. He smiled and made this experience a good one. I will absolutely be booking future appointments with Breck and I will recommend him and Your Mechanic services to others I know. Thank you!

BMW Z4 - Brake Pads Replacement (Rear) - Phoenix, Arizona
Brian knows what he is doing and I am so happy yourmechanic.com suggested him for my Z4 car inspection prior to purchasing and even happier he was available to perform my 1st service on the vehicle I purchased. His knowledge on the brand gave him ability to to an in depth inspection and he communicated very well informing me what to prepare for in ownership of my BMW. When he came to perform maintenance on my vehicle he shared so many tips with me. I will absolutely be having Brian come back out when I need future servicing on my car.
