2. Mercedes-Benz G-Class
Despite being a flashy luxury SUV, the G-Class is a hardcore vehicle that can go just about anywhere. Originally designed for military duty, the truck is incredibly tough. The steering is numb, which turns out to be a huge advantage when off-roading, since nobody likes broken thumbs. Whether you go for the G550 or the insane G63 AMG, both provide plenty of performance to put a smile on anyone’s face. The G550 comes with a 5.5-liter V8 engine that pounds out 382 horsepower and 391 lb.-ft. of torque. The G63 AMG is powered by the same engine, which works with a pair of turbochargers to thunder out an earth-shattering 536 horsepower and 561 lb.-ft. of torque. Towing capacity with either engine is pretty decent at 7,000 pounds, meaning you can take some toys or necessities in a trailer along for your adventures.
