1. Toyota FJ40 Land Cruiser (1974 – 1983) The Toyota FJ40 Land Cruiser was one of the best off-road vehicles every produced.

The most popular pickup truck in the world, the Ford F-150, easily takes its rightful place on the throne of the 20 best off-road vehicles. It’s only fitting we start this list off with the legendary F-series – it is, after all, a vehicle only outsold by the pedestrian Toyota Corolla. Perhaps the F-150’s greatest penchant among buyers is its nearly unparalleled off-road prowess and the reliability and toughness that complements it.
The Range Rover's only true competitor is the Toyota Land Cruiser and its Lexus cousin, the LX. It's big, comfortable, luxurious, and capable, thanks to all sorts of electronic off-roading features. Of course you'll pay for all that goodness, though: the Toyota starts at $83,825, and the Lexus is $88,880.
