Featured Vehicle: Overlanding Brute

There are fundamental elements of a good overland vehicle: the combination of serviceability (or ultimate reliability), capacity (payload and cargo volume), capability for when the terrain gets technical, and enough comfort to keep driver fatigue at bay.  For the last 15 years, American Expedition Vehicles has been trying to pull the Jeep Wrangler into the…

The 2019 Ram 2500 Power Wagon

“The Ram Power Wagon is an off-road, all-access pass, removing the limitations, instilling confidence and allowing owners to reach areas of recreation and lifestyle not attainable with any other pickup,” said Mike Manley, head of Jeep Brand and Ram brand, FCA, “…(for) those who travel into extreme terrain, while providing the towing and payload capability…

Clean Cruiser Project

Photography by Danny Pellissier and Nathan Stuart In 2002 my father passed down his pristine 1994 extended-cab Toyota pickup to me. That truck led to a lifelong infatuation with Toyota off-road vehicles. Sixteen years later, I’m a 40 Series junkie, which means my pockets are empty, but my smile is full. Throughout the years I’ve…

The 2020 Range Rover Evoque

The 2020 Range Rover Evoque – To Call Forth A crossover SUV was never meant to be a truck; they have been designed to be a far more capable and usable car, and in some cases like the Evoque, a great car with the backroad performance that exceeds some traditional SUVs. This is not an…

The Jeep Gladiator :: Wayout

Each year, the design team from Jeep reveals a series of concept vehicles that either spark the consumer’s imagination for current models, or tease possible future offerings. The 2019 Easter Jeep Safari was no exception, and Mark Allen (Chief Designer, Jeep) pulled out all of the stops with a fleet of Gladiators. Of particular interest…

The Nissan Titan Surfcamp

I accelerated hard out of the curve, pushing tight against the apex and to the limits of adhesion from the Nitto Grapplers. The Cummins diesel pulled strong and sent me into the next bend with more momentum than an 8,000-pound truck should, and with a bigger smile on my face than I expected a full-size…

Form Meets Function

This will probably come as a surprise to exactly none of you, but I love Land Rover Defenders. I’m not sure if it’s their character, heritage, or looks that get me most, but I’ve often found myself dreaming of selling all my belongings and hitting the road behind the wheel of one of these classics….

Quicksand Dreams

The Tacoma has long been a favorite among overlanders for its reliability, capability, and compact size, but the latest generation seems to be most popular yet. Sure, there are some mixed reviews, but there’s no denying that the internet is flooded with more third-gen Tacomas than it knows what to do with. That is a…

Field Tested: Land Rover Discovery 5

I still remember falling in love with the first generation Discovery. Its boxy yet elegant lines, stadium seating, and alpine windows seemed to beckon me towards the driver’s seat with a promise of adventure, and there was no question of whether or not it had the capability to deliver on it. After all, this was…
