What are the best Nissan off-road vehicles?
I am looking to buy a new vehicle that can handle some off-road use, but I generally stick with Nissan and am not sure what its off-road options are. What are the best Nissan off-road vehicles?

Great question! Nissan definitely doesn’t market itself as an off-road friendly brand, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have vehicles that can handle rough terrain. If you’re looking for the best Nissan off-road vehicles, they are:
- Nissan Armada
- Nissan Titan PRO-4X
- Nissan Pathfinder Rock Creek Edition
- Nissan Frontier PRO-4X
Of these four, the best suited to off-road use is probably the Nissan Titan PRO-4X, which boasts 9.8 inches of ground clearance, a powerful 5.6L V8 engine, nine-speed shiftable automatic transmission, and four-wheel drive.
One of the only downsides to the Nissan Titan PRO-4X is its size—it is a full-size pickup truck after all, which means you may have some difficulty navigating the trails.
As an alternative, we’d suggest the Nissan Frontier PRO-4X—it’s smaller than the Titan and uses a smaller 3.8L V6 engine, but still packs enough power to handle most off-road terrain.
