2016 Chevrolet Colorado Z71

Broadly speaking, new 4x4s are less capable off the beaten path than they were ten years ago.

That s because rugged, body-on-frame SUVs are quickly going extinct, and car-based crossovers reign supreme.

While crossovers are more comfortable and usually markedly more efficient than traditional SUVs, the most challenging terrain they re designed to conquer is a dirt road.

All is not lost if you re planning on hitting the backcountry.

There are still several great off-roaders on the market, including a handful that were designed specifically to excel when the going gets tough.

Check out the ten best off-roaders on the market today, hand-picked by Digital Trends car experts.

Jaguar has finally fully revealed the official I-PACE all-electric SUV, a vehicle with just under 240 miles of range and a 0 to 60 mph time of under five seconds.

The car can also charge to 80 percent from empty in 40 minutes using special quick charger hardware, and a 15-minute top-up is good for around 62 miles of additional range.

The I-PACE looks like Jaguar’s best attempt to do a Tesla impression in more ways than the electric powertrain, however: The automaker is also promising over-the-air updates for the car, and connected controls that tie in to a mobile app for your phone, including charging status information.

OTA is a first for Jaguar with this new EV offering.

In the cabin, there are touchscreens for infotainment readout, along with standard physical controls for additional cabin control options.

The vehicle has the silhouette and physical footprint of a crossover or compact SUV, but it’s also designed to make the most of its interior and luggage space, with fold-flat rear seats and nearly 400 gallons of total interior volume with that configuration.

Ferrari is tipped to be working on an SUV crossover, and we might even have our first glimpse of the car’s slick and sporty design.

It seems like everyone is building an SUV these days, spurred on by the rapid growth of the category.

But we’d always felt safe in the knowledge that Ferrari would stick to what it knows best – heinously expensive supercars more suited to a race circuit than a school run.

But it seems even Ferrari might not be able to avoid banking on the skyrocketing demand for sports utility vehicles, as a new report suggests the company is readying an SUV of its very own.

In the latest issue of the UK’s Car Magazine, it’s claimed that Ferrari is planning to launch a luxury SUV crossover as soon as 2021, and that it will feature a hybrid engine.

The car, which is reportedly codenamed ‘F16X’, has even had its supposed design been recreated by a digital artist for the magazine.

Jaguar has announced its new performance SUV is designed to withstand the world’s most extreme conditions.

The E-PACE SUV, which will be fully revealed later this month, withstood temperatures of -40 C and +48 C, from the Arctic Circle to Dubai, during an extensive 120,000 testing regime involving 500 engineers.

The 25-month test program took place across four continents.

It included driving 5,000 feet above sea level and taking more than 400 laps of the Nürburgring.

The firm said the tests, which also involved 125 prototypes, will ensure “E-PACE can withstand a lifetime of use in the hands of the most active and demanding customers.”

Here you can see some of the all-weather testing

Jaguar is adding a new SUV to its line-up, with the Jaguar E-PACE promising both performance and compact dimensions.

The smaller sports utility vehicle will join the larger Jaguar F-PACE in the automaker’s line-up, following market trends away from sedans and instead toward SUVs and crossovers.

It’s proved a successful strategy for Jaguar.

While stablemate Land Rover has a long history of SUVs, the big cat brand eschewed such things in favor of coupes, convertibles, and sports sedans.

The car was the best-selling model in Jaguar’s range worldwide in May 2017 and, along with the XF and Range Rover, a rare example of sales growth among both nameplates’ line-ups.

Fitting a smaller, and more affordable model into the SUV range makes perfect sense, therefore, though only if Jaguar prices it right.

Everyone is wanting to get in on the SUV craze today with the SUV being the most popular segment in the automotive industry.

This is much to the detriment of the car market with fewer cars selling meaning that fewer new models are likely to be made.

We already have a super luxury SUV from Bentley called the Bentayga first revealed back in 2015 (we also got to drive one on the track).

The vehicle in the images here is wearing the swirly car camo we are used to seeing on prototypes of all sorts.You can’t really hide that Rolls style with swirls though, one glance at that flat, upright grille and you see Rolls-Royce camo or not.

Word is that the SUV is known as the Cullinan internally.

The images don’t give up a lot of detail, but you can clearly see suicide doors which are very cool.

Ferrari is the odd man out.

Lamborghini unveiled it's long-awaited Urus SUV on Monday, leaving only Ferrari as the major holdout in high-end SUV country.

(Well, Aston Martin is also SUV-free, but it's a stand-alone luxury brand, unaffiliated with a big-time carmaker.)

The final production version of will be revealed in late 2017, but you can expect it to look remarkably similar to this concept, with customer deliveries taking place in 2018

The I-Pace concept s dynamics and responsiveness are helped by the battery s position being beneath the floor and between the axles, which lowers the centre of gravity and reduces yaw inertia

Drivers can set the level of regenerative braking on the I-Pace, raising it to the point where in stop-and-go traffic there is little or no need to apply the brakes to halt the car

Jaguar Land Rover engineers designed and developed the synchronous, permanent magnet electric motors in-house in order to achieve a highly compact design of an outer diameter of just 234mm and only 500mm long

Faraday Future unveiled the FF 91, its first production EV, at CES in Las Vegas Tuesday night.

Unlike the fantasy racecar at last year s show, the FF 91 pronounced nine-one actually moved and drove—drove itself, parked itself, and did 0-60 in 2.39 seconds live onstage with a driver .

Also unlike last year s car, Faraday has plans for the FF 91, including the production of 300 limited editions in March and mass production sometime in 2018.

Sampson and other Faraday Future presenters heralded the FF 91 s unparalleled intelligence, cutting-edge design, fast charging, and pure, raw speed.

They even promised a mobility ecosystem where the car would provide connectivity, convenience, and customization to enhance the user s driving experience.

The interior of Faraday Future s FF 91 is designed to be luxurious, and customizable to the driver s and passengers needs.

Porsche Cayenne GTS

  • It's the heart of summer in much of the US, and families are thinking about loading up kids, pets, and gear for road trips.
  • I've selected four family-friendly SUVs, at four price points, that are excellent road-trip chariots. 
  • I've also thrown in a high-performance SUV and an all-electric SUV, for those looking for something different.
  • Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.

It's road trip season, and given the constraints that the coronavirus pandemic has imposed on family travel this summer in the US, a lot of folks are thinking about getting behind the wheel rather than aboard a plane or cruise ship.

Over the past few years, I've tested numerous SUVs, so I thought a roundup of three-row, seven-passenger choices at different price points, from budget to costly, would be helpful.

I settled on SUVs from Mazda, Subaru, and Kia — and I threw in a high-performance ute from Porsche (lacking a third row) and an all-electric option from Tesla (with a third row).

These SUVs each combine versatility, decent fuel economy, and cargo space to make for excellent family-hauling. They also all have all-wheel-drive, which isn't entirely necessary in the summertime, but comes in handy at other times to the year.

Read on to see what these road-tripping SUV can offer:

FOLLOW US: On Facebook for more car and transportation content!

THE BUDGET CHOICE: The Mazda CX-9. $34,000 base, $45,000 as-tested.

Read the review.



The Mazda CX-9 is the family road-trip mobile I most often recommend. The price is right, it seats seven, and I haven't heard many complaints about the third generation of the SUV, rolled out in 2016.



The interior on the CX-9 I tested was semi-premium — a real treat at this price-point.



I had but one complaint when I drove the CX-9 for a week. The Skyactiv-G 2.5-liter, four-cylinder turbocharged engine cranks out only 250 horsepower, less than what you'd get in a competing vehicle with a V6. Fuel economy is decent, at 23 mpg city/highway combined.



Cargo capacity was fine, however, at about 15 cubic feet. As with many three-row crossovers, using the third row greatly diminishes what you can haul — to manage five passengers, I used just one of the third-row seats, which increased the cargo hold to around 30 cubic feet.



Mazda's infotainment system lags the industry, but it does cover all the expected bases: Bluetooth connectivity, USB ports, and GPS navigation.



THE MIDDLE OF THE PACK CONTENDER: The Subaru Ascent. $32,000 base, $46,000 as-tested.

Read the review.



The Ascent is Subaru's first crack at a mid-size SUV since the ill-fated Tribeca. We were impressed by the Ascent's comfortable cabin, bountiful safety features, solid driving dynamics, and turbocharged engine.



The interior of our top-spec Touring model really impressed. The cabin is traditional Subaru — very conservative but effective and easy to use. Ergonomics are terrific, with no oddly placed buttons or knobs to report. Seating for third-row passengers is cozy, but the second row is fine.



With the third row folded, cargo capacity is 47 cubic feet. With the third row in use, it's 18 cubic feet.



Power for the Ascent comes from a 2.4-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder engine. The "flat" or "boxer" turbo-four produces 260 horsepower. Combined with all-wheel-drive, the powertrain gives up a bit on the MPGs, which are under 30 in combined city/highway driving.



The center stack is dominated by a high-definition touchscreen running the latest variant of Subaru's Starlink infotainment system. It does everything well, from GPS navigation to device integration.



THE NEAR-LUXURY FAMILY HAULER: The Kia Telluride. $32,000 base, $47,000 as-tested.

Read the review.



The Kia Telluride impressed me at all levels and represents fantastic value for the SUV segment.



The Telluride's interior isn't luxurious, but it isn't mass-market. For most consumers, it's pure Goldilocks: Just right.



The Telluride does three rows as well as I've seen in an SUV. And even the back row deployed, it offers an impressive 21 cubic feet of cargo space.



Fuel economy from the 291-horsepower V6 is also pretty decent, if not remarkable: 21 mpg in city/highway combined.



Kia is selling what I consider one of the top infotainment systems on the market. The 10-inch central touchscreen is nearly perfect, and the use of old-school buttons, knobs, and switches is welcome.



THE MONEY-IS-NO-OBJECT OPTION: The Audi Q7. $55,000 base, $76,000 as-tested.



The Audi Q7 is a solid choice in the luxury SUV market. I recently tested a 2020 model of the vehicle, now in its second generation.



The Q7's interior is a study in tasteful minimalism. My tester was all-black, with piano-black surfaces and a modest amount of wood trim.



Power came from a 3.0-liter, turbocharged V6, making 335 horsepower (a smaller four-cylinder offers 248 horsepower). My V6 served up 18 mpg, in city/highway combined.



With all three rows in action, you have only about 14 cubic feet of cargo space to work with. Drop the third row, and that rises to 30 cubic feet.



Audi has one of the best infotainment systems in the industry. The central screen provides access to faultless GPS navigation, easy Bluetooth pairing, and effortless device integration. My tester also had the "Virtual Cockpit" feature, which can transfer some features to the instrument cluster.



THE GO-FAST ALTERNATIVE: The Porsche Cayenne GTS. $107,000 base, $167,000 as-tested.

Read the review.



The Cayenne GTS is a very special set of wheels: expensive, but with the sort of prizefighter punch that rewards spirited driving. Plus, the ability to haul enough luggage for a weekend on the road — just not one involving a family of five.



Porsche interiors aren't overtly luxurious, nor are they supposed to be. But the Cayenne GTS's has something else going for it: sporty touches. AND for my test vehicle, a rear-seat entertainment system, powered by Android.



The Cayenne GTS rocks a 4.0-liter, twin-turbocharged V8 engine, making 453 horsepower. The motor is thirsty and not yet EPA-rated for fuel economy. But I think I was under 20 mpg on average.



With the back seats in use, there are 27 cubic feet to work with; drop the back seats and that increases to 60 cubic feet.



Porsche's infotainment system is quite good, although not quite the best. It's outdone by Audi (Porsche's VW Group stablemate). But the system checks all the right boxes, from Bluetooth pairing to USB device connectivity to GPS navigation. There's also wireless charging.



IF YOU WANT TO GO ELECTRIC: The Tesla Model X. $80,000 base, approximately $150,000 as-tested.



I actually took the Model X on a 700-mile family road trip. Its interior was more or less roomy enough for five people.

Read all about the road trip.



But only more or less. The third row is quite compact.



Even with one third-row seat in use, cargo capacity was fantastic, and we had backup from the front trunk.



The Model X I tested had roughly 300 miles of range, but Tesla has improved that to 350 miles, for what it calls the "Long Range Plus" trim level. One does have to deal with recharging times when road-tripping in Tesla. Even Supercharger-enabled fast charging could consume 30-45 minutes.



Tesla's technology is fairly incredible. The large central touchscreen controls everything from navigation (which can optimize charging times, based on routes) to audio to Tesla's Autopilot semi-self-driving system.

The Bentley Bentayga is one of the fastest, most expensive, and most powerful SUVs on the market.

It stands out with an exquisitely-crafted interior, elegant Bentley styling, and a twin-turbocharged 6.0-liter W12 engine that provides 600 horsepower and an impressive 663 pound-feet of torque.

The Bentayga is manufactured using materials like aluminum in order to keep weight in check.

The ultra-light body and the 600-horsepower 12 allow it to hit 60 mph from a stop in four seconds flat, which is about as fast as a Porsche 911.

If that s not speedy enough, we hear that a more powerful model is right around the corner.

Ferrari is tipped to be working on an SUV crossover, and we might even have our first glimpse of the car’s slick and sporty design.

It seems like everyone is building an SUV these days, spurred on by the rapid growth of the category.

But we’d always felt safe in the knowledge that Ferrari would stick to what it knows best – heinously expensive supercars more suited to a race circuit than a school run.

But it seems even Ferrari might not be able to avoid banking on the skyrocketing demand for sports utility vehicles, as a new report suggests the company is readying an SUV of its very own.

In the latest issue of the UK’s Car Magazine, it’s claimed that Ferrari is planning to launch a luxury SUV crossover as soon as 2021, and that it will feature a hybrid engine.

The car, which is reportedly codenamed ‘F16X’, has even had its supposed design been recreated by a digital artist for the magazine.

Jaguar has announced its new performance SUV is designed to withstand the world’s most extreme conditions.

The E-PACE SUV, which will be fully revealed later this month, withstood temperatures of -40 C and +48 C, from the Arctic Circle to Dubai, during an extensive 120,000 testing regime involving 500 engineers.

The 25-month test program took place across four continents.

It included driving 5,000 feet above sea level and taking more than 400 laps of the Nürburgring.

The firm said the tests, which also involved 125 prototypes, will ensure “E-PACE can withstand a lifetime of use in the hands of the most active and demanding customers.”

Everyone is wanting to get in on the SUV craze today with the SUV being the most popular segment in the automotive industry.

This is much to the detriment of the car market with fewer cars selling meaning that fewer new models are likely to be made.

We already have a super luxury SUV from Bentley called the Bentayga first revealed back in 2015 (we also got to drive one on the track).

The vehicle in the images here is wearing the swirly car camo we are used to seeing on prototypes of all sorts.You can’t really hide that Rolls style with swirls though, one glance at that flat, upright grille and you see Rolls-Royce camo or not.

Word is that the SUV is known as the Cullinan internally.

The images don’t give up a lot of detail, but you can clearly see suicide doors which are very cool.

The final production version of will be revealed in late 2017, but you can expect it to look remarkably similar to this concept, with customer deliveries taking place in 2018

The I-Pace concept s dynamics and responsiveness are helped by the battery s position being beneath the floor and between the axles, which lowers the centre of gravity and reduces yaw inertia

Drivers can set the level of regenerative braking on the I-Pace, raising it to the point where in stop-and-go traffic there is little or no need to apply the brakes to halt the car

Jaguar Land Rover engineers designed and developed the synchronous, permanent magnet electric motors in-house in order to achieve a highly compact design of an outer diameter of just 234mm and only 500mm long

The Bentley Bentayga is one of the fastest, most expensive, and most powerful SUVs on the market.

It stands out with an exquisitely-crafted interior, elegant Bentley styling, and a twin-turbocharged 6.0-liter W12 engine that provides 600 horsepower and an impressive 663 pound-feet of torque.

The Bentayga is manufactured using materials like aluminum in order to keep weight in check.

The ultra-light body and the 600-horsepower 12 allow it to hit 60 mph from a stop in four seconds flat, which is about as fast as a Porsche 911.

If that s not speedy enough, we hear that a more powerful model is right around the corner.
