By and large, the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon is considered the best off-road Jeep. It receives high marks for its high ground clearance and four-wheel drive system, and its high crawl ratio allows it to tackle any kind of terrain with ease. Additionally, the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon comes with a highly capable set of tires that make driving on mud, gravel, rocks and other extreme conditions a total breeze.
That said, Jeep has a wide selection of off-road-ready vehicles in its lineup. The Jeep Gladiator, the automaker’s take on a pickup truck, is also an excellent off-road option for those looking for a car with a little more carrying space. The Wrangler Willys, another edition of the Wrangler, pays homage to the vehicle’s World War II roots and its high-performing shock absorbers and massive 32-inch wheels allow it to tackle all sorts of terrain.
Or, if you’re looking for something that’s just as comfortable in the carpool pickup line as it is tearing up some off-road terrain, the Grand Cherokee might be more suited to your needs. This SUV’s V6 or V8 (depending on the trim level) engine gives it enough juice to go off the beaten (and paved) path, but its spacious SUV interior makes it a family-friendly vehicle.
