Best SUVs for Off-Roading

At Maguire Dealerships, we know there are many drivers in Ithaca, Trumansburg, and Watkins Glen ready to show off their adventurous side. If off-roading is something you're intrigued by, but you've never had the right vehicle to take you there, we invite you to check out these top SUVs for off-roading at our dealership.

From their capable performance to their driver-friendly interior amenities, these models are ready for the road ahead-and the dirt and mud, too.

Jeep Wrangler

Sure, you could pick just about any Jeep for an off-roading adventure, and you'd be satisfied. We'll choose to shine a light on the latest edition of the Jeep Wrangler, though, a pioneer in the off-roading community. It comes with three available 4x4 systems, steel skid plates, and many other features designed for your time spent off the pavement.

The available Selec-Trac® 4 x4 System comes with a full-time mode, which switches from 2WD to 4WD when called for. Selec-Trac® will analyze every driving situation and send torque to the wheels with the best grip. The Command-Trac® 4x4 System and Rock-Trac® 4x4 System also provide off-roading prowess.

Ford Expedition

Recent editions of the Ford Expedition have featured the FX4 Off-Road Package, which adds on technology and 4x4 capability to take on trails and unpaved surfaces. The Expedition FX4 Off-Road Package comes with off-road-tuned shocks, a new electronic limited-slip rear differential, skid plates, and side steps.

The Terrain Management System™ allows you to select driving modes to optimize driving dynamics, to tackle snow, mud, sand, and more. The all-terrain tires come with thicker sidewalls, providing a smooth ride while delivering needed traction when tackling tougher terrain. Seven skid plates serve as armor to protect critical areas of the vehicle.

Toyota 4Runner

From the outside looking in, the 4Runner TRD Pro stands out, with its boldly designed front grille, rugged roof rack, and stamped aluminum front skid plate. The powerful 4.0-liter 270-horsepower V6 engine helps you take on the toughest of surfaces, with standard Multi-terrain Select, Crawl Control, and electronic locking rear differential providing traction throughout.

The TRD-tuned suspension, with TRD FOX® performance shocks and TRD-tuned front springs, provides an extra inch of lift. The rear shock compressions can help to smooth out tricky terrain. When the trails get tough, the ¼-in. thick aluminum front skid plate protects underside components.

Subaru Outback

With 8.7 inches of ground clearance and X-MODE® technology, the Subaru Outback makes for a surprisingly strong option for an off-roading adventure. Take on almost any terrain using this ground clearance advantage, along with standard X-MODE®, which is able to optimize the Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system for maximum traction on a slippery surface.

X-MODE® also utilizes Hill Descent Control, providing stability when descending difficult grades. Vehicle Dynamics Control uses sensors, which monitor wheel speeds, brake pressure, steering angle, and more. If a difference is detected between your intended path and the one the vehicle is taking, brake power will be applied to reduce engine torque and keep you on the right path.
