I’m fascinated by off-road versions of production vehicles. Ever since the Ford Raptor arrived, it feels like a few automakers are getting a bit more serious about properly playing in the dirt. Sure, Jeep and Toyota have been doing it for a long time, but the Raptor took things to a new extreme.
Which automaker that currently isn’t offering a great off-road model, should add one into its lineup?
On the lower end, it would be interesting to see a real-deal Kia dirt slinger. Up top, I’d love to see a true focused off-road offering from Porsche. Perhaps an honest revival of that Transsyberria Cayenne, but this time apply it to the Macan and lean into it.
What do you think? Which automaker needs to jump into the off-road fun?
