Off-road race driver BJ Baldwin roars across the streets and jungles of Cuba in his 850 hp Toyota/Toyo Trucks trophy truck on an epic mission that sees him burning rubber, putting his suspension system to the test, and catching insane amounts of air along the way.
Howe & Howe’s Ripsaw EV2 offers incredible speed and agility off-road, while keeping its occupants clean and dry inside its high tech cockpit. It’s got more than 12″ of suspension travel and a 600+hp diesel engine. It also comes in a “pickup” version that carries bikes.
If given the choice between the EM50 Urban Assault Vehicle and the Action Mobil Globecruiser 7500, we’d go with this one. This mobile home has a 532 hp engine, an off-road capable 6×6 drivetrain, plentiful interior space, and even has a motorcycle dock out back.
The Mint 400 is called The Great American Off-Road Race. To make the experience even better, Toyota helped us turn it into an awesome off-road road trip and adventure ending up in Las Vegas. We queued up Fear and Loathing and hit the road for an amazing weekend adventure.
The love child of an NV 2500 HD van and a Titan XD truck, this off-road beast has a Cummins 5.0L V8 turbodiesel engine, 4WD, 37-inch General Grabber X3 tires, a high-travel front suspension, a 10,000lb winch, LED off-road lights, and still carries 234 cu. ft. of cargo.
What happens when you take one of the world’s most powerful hypercars and make it off-road ready? This. Sadly, Rain Prisk’s rendering is just a concept, but hopefully some billionaire will make it real some day. For now, we’ll have to settle for a Rally Fighter.
The new performance variant of Chevy’s mid-size pickup gains 2″ of suspension lift, steel rocker protectors, Multimatic shocks, 17×8 wheels with 31-inch off-road tires, and front and rear locking diffs. Comes with either a 308 hp V6, or a 181 hp diesel with 369 lb-ft. of torque.

Drivers Justin Oquendo, Ryan Kibbe, and Ken Block take on Chris Forsberg, Dustin Jones, and Ballistic BJ Baldwin, kicking up dirt for days in the widebody Can-AM Maverick X3 ATV, with its crazy 24″ of suspension travel, 15″ of ground clearance, and speedy 154hp turbo 4 engine.
We reconnected with pro racer Ryan Millen to take a ride inside his Toyota Rally RAV4. Incredibly, it’s mostly stock other than the tires, shocks, exhaust, and rollcage. We still can’t believe this front-wheel drive SUV with an automatic can go around a dirt track like this.
Currently available in Europe as the G500 4×4², this beastly off-roader is heading to the US in 2017. The $200K+ SUV has 17.2″ of ground clearance, 39″ fording depth, articulating axles,a 416 hp biturbo V8, and the sort of luxury interior we’d expect from Mercedes.
