Best Off-Road Truck Trims Revealed

Off-RoadingWhether a person is truly adventurous or just likes knowing they have the option to be, the notion of having an off-road truck can be attractive. In reality, data show that few people actually go off-road very much or at all during the life of their off-road trucks—but maybe it’s enough to know that they could if they wanted to.

So here’s to the off-road trucks that live in garages, get regular wash-and-wax treatments, and rarely ever see any mud or rough terrain. Even if they do little more than look pretty and transport their owners to the grocery store now and then, we know what the beast inside is capable of should it be called upon.

Whether you’ve been off-road a thousand times or have only seen off-roading a thousand times on television, here is a list of some of the best off-road truck trims to ever hit the market.

2012 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor

The impressive Raptor sets the standard when it comes to off-road trucks. Powered by a 6.2L V-8 engine that is mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission, the Raptor features four-wheel drive and a suspension that is both on-road and off-road friendly. Comparisons constantly placed the Raptor at the head of the class when it comes to ready-to-roll off-road trucks.

Dodge Ram 2500 Power Wagon

This versatile Ram truck impresses both on and off the road and boasts a durable 6-speed automatic transmission and 410 hp. It capably tackles rough terrain and steep climbs, even laudably negotiating obstacles like boulders.

Chevrolet Colorado Z71 Trail Boss

This truck boasts a combination of Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac tires, a revamped suspension, front recovery hooks, hill descent control, and an automatic locking rear differential, making it an ideal candidate for going off-road in tough terrain.

Dodge Ram 1500 Rebel

This Ram truck is ready to go off-road with the optional 395 hp, 5.7L Hemi V-8 engine (a step up from the standard Pentastar V-6 offered as the base engine on this model). Aside from the Ram Runner, which had to be built by the dealer, the Rebel is touted as a serious off-road truck that is available directly from the dealership.
