Top 10 Off road SUV in 2015
Off road Kings presents to you the best top 10 SUV for Off road.
10) Volkswagen Touareg
· Price: $ 45000
· Engine: V6 /3.6L
· Horsepower @ RPM: 280 @ 6200
· Torque @ RPM: 266 @ 2500
· 0-60 time: 8 sec. (Est.)
· Top Speed: 140 mph (Est.)
As expected, the face lift arrives with updated front and rear fascias, the former sporting a slightly more aggressive off road design, bi-xenon headlamps standard across the entire lineup, as well as new exterior colors and new wheels.
Although horsepower and torque updates were also rumored, the 2015 Touareg will hit U.S. showrooms with the same engine lineup as the 2014 off road model. However, the minor aerodynamic improvements and the optimized eight-speed automatic have enabled Volkswagen to enhance the fuel efficiency of the SUV by up to six percent.
9) Suzuki Grand Vitara
· Price: $ 30000
· Engine: 1.6-litre 4cyl diesel Transmission: Six-speed manual, front-wheel drive
· Power: 118bhp
· 0-62mph: 11.5 seconds
· Top speed: 112mph
· Economy/CO2: 70.6mpg/106g/km
There are two routes manufacturers generally take when developing a crossover: premium or sporty (off road). But here, Suzuki has stuck to what it knows best. The Vitara offers a rugged simplicity few rivals provide, and that’s something that will appeal to many prospective buyers. It’s not perfect – the diesel engine feels agricultural and the interior quality isn’t up to standard – but it’s spacious, good value and pleasing on the eye.
8) Nissan Xterra
· Price : $ 25000-30000
· Engine: 4.0-liter DOHC 24-valve V6
· Horsepower: 261 hp at 5,600 rpm
· torque: 4,000 rpm
Nissan has announced that the company does not want to invest money in the development and improvement of this crossover off road SUV. Another important reason for the decision to suspend production, is drastic drop in sales Xterra SUV in 2014. So, without any improvements, changes and without a direct successor, this model goes down in history. 2016 Nissan Xterra will be sold as a 2015 off road model.
7) Land Rover Range Rover Sport
· Price: $80,990
· Engine: 5.0-liter V-8
· HorsePower: 510 hp
· Torque : 502 lb-ft
· Top Speed: 133 mph
Very few vehicles can venture off road, tackle the Nürburgring, and haul five passengers in luxurious comfort, but the Range Rover Sport Supercharged is one of them. A 510-hp supercharged 5.0-liter V-8, eight-speed automatic, and adjustable four-wheel drive system helps it easily hustle down any road or trail. The SVR model ups horsepower to 550 and features a stiffer suspension for even better handling while a leather-lined and feature-packed interior help it earn its Range Rover badging.
6) Jeep grand Cherokee SRT
· Price: $65,890
· Engine: V8 /6.4L
· HorsePower: 475 hp
· Torque: 470 lb-ft
· Top Speed: 157 mph
The Grand Cherokee SRT is an exercise in overkill if ever there was one, but its sports-car levels of grip and roaring Hemi muscle make it an all-season performance powerhouse. The 475-hp 6.4-liter V-8 is mated to an eight-speed automatic and a five-mode all-wheel-drive system. The steering is quick but feels more disconnected from the road than it should be, given its sporting intentions. Regardless, the GC SRT will hustle around a track ASAP in a way that will have you forgetting it’s an SUV made for off road.
5) Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro
· BASE PRICE: $40,000
· ENGINE TYPE: V-6, aluminum block and heads, port fuel injection /5-speed automatic with manual shift control
· Power: 270 hp @ 5600 rpm
· Torque: 278 lb-ft @ 4400 rpm
· Zero to 60 mph: 7.7 sec
· Top speed: 115 mph
· FUEL ECONOMY: EPA city/highway driving: 17/22 mpg
There is nothing elegant about this imposing machine. Yet sitting confidently on its all-black 17-inch wheels and knobby 31.5-inch, P265/70R-17 Nitto Terra Grappler tires, the 2015 4Runner TRD Pro oozes charisma, particularly when its outsides are covered in retina-searing Inferno Orange metallic, one of only three hues Toyota offers. (Black and white are the others.) Regardless of color choice, the 4Runner TRD Pro is the most comfortable and everyday-suitable member of Toyota’s new 4X4 trifecta that includes the TRD Pro Tacoma and Tundra models. After a short romp in the Nevada desert, we think it might be the toughest off road 4Runner yet.
4) BMW X6 M
· BASE PRICE: $103,050
· ENGINE TYPE: Twin-turbocharged DOHC 32-valve V-8, aluminum block and heads, direct fuel injection, 8-speed automatic with manual shifting mode
· Power: 567 hp @ 6500 rpm
· Torque: 553 @ 2200 rpm
· Zero to 100 mph: 9.8 sec
· Top speed): 155 mph (electronically limited)
· FUEL ECONOMY EPA city/highway: 14/18 mpg
When the M versions of the BMW X5 and X6 first appeared in 2009, they represented multiple heresies for the M brand: They used turbocharged engines, they had all-wheel drive, and they were off road sport-utility vehicles. Since then, BMW’s M division has pretty much brushed aside notions of what does or doesn’t constitute heresy. The new M3 and M4 use a turbocharged engine (as do the M5 and the M6). All-wheel drive is coming to the M5. And nearly 20,000 M-badged SUVs roam the streets.
Now comes round two for the M version of BMW’s SUVs, in both traditionally and genre-bending X6 “sports activity coupe” forms. The latter, of course, is another blow to conventionality—some might say common sense—but BMW responds by pointing to 250,000 total X6 sales since its debut in 2008. So as we head deep into the heart of Texas to drive the new X6 M, we won’t bother to examine the concept, only the execution.
3) Mercedes-Benz G63 / G65 AMG
· Price: $138,075
· HorsePower: 544 hp
· Torque: 560 lb-ft
· TopSpeed: 132 mph
Breathtakingly expensive, hugely powerful, aggressively thirsty, and anachronistic in looks, this is not for the shy. With its roots going back to 1979, the legendary G-wagen retains its basic fashionista-meets-Sandinista look. Its twin-turbo 5.5-liter V-8 cranks out 536 hp and 560 lb-ft of torque and mates to a seven-speed automatic. Mercedes’ all-wheel-drive system, 4MATIC, is standard, making the G63 highly capable off road although it’s more likely to be seen outside a Hollywood hot spot.
2) Porsche Cayenne Turbo / Turbo S
· Price: $114,595
· Engine: V8 /4.8
· HorsePower: 570 hp
· Torque: 435 lb-ft
· TopSpeed: 172 mph
The Cayenne Turbo and its big-brother Turbo S are a pair of seriously off road brute, with handling and braking to back up all the horsepower under their hoods. The Turbo makes 520 hp, while the Turbo S makes a beefy 570; both use a twin-turbo 4.8-liter V-8 with all-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic. Handling is superb for such heavy haulers, thanks to an adjustable suspension system and an informative steering setup. The S adds ceramic brakes, 21-inch wheels, and torque vectoring.
· PRICE AS TESTED: $30,980 (base price: $26,990)
· ENGINE TYPE: V-6, aluminum block and heads, port fuel injection /6-speed manual
· Power: 285 hp @ 6400 rpm
· Torque: 260 lb-ft @ 4800 rpm
· Zero to 90 mph: 15.3 sec
· Top speed (governor limited): 99 mph
· FUEL ECONOMY EPA city/highway: 17/21 mpg
If you’re looking for the most serious of off-roading vehicles available, look no further than the legendary Wrangler. It takes all of the right features—four-wheel drive, ample ground clearance, and a nimble suspension—and puts them all in one go-anywhere package. A 285-hp, 3.6-liter V-6 is the sole engine; it teams up with either a six-speed manual or a five-speed automatic transmission. For the ultimate Wrangler, check out the Rubicon—it’s as tough as the legendary off road trail that inspired it. It is the off road King.
