For many consumers, the million-level luxury SUV models are basically the daily means of transportation for the rich. Although these models are more luxurious, as SUVs, when it comes to off-roading, these luxury SUVs are not necessarily better than those cheaper models. better. Of course, there are exceptions to everything. The luxury SUVs we are going to talk about today really have very strong off-road capabilities. Overkill.
Fifth generation Land Rover Discovery
The appearance of the new generation of Land Rover Discovery has changed from the square shape of the previous four generations. The more elegant lines also make the new Discovery more like a luxury SUV. But in fact, the new discovery has not regressed in terms of off-road performance. The ground clearance of 280mm ensures the most basic passability, and the wading depth of 900mm can ensure that the vehicle can smoothly pass through puddles of general depth. In addition, the full-time four-wheel drive system of the Land Rover family is also powerful. On the new model, Land Rover has also added a creep function, so that the driver can focus more on controlling the direction. As a luxury SUV, Land Rover never disappoints. Electric seats, electric tailgate, on-board WIFI, multimedia navigation and other equipment are also the most basic configurations in the list.
Toyota Land Cruiser LC200
I’m afraid no one will doubt the off-road capability of the Land Cruiser, but more players still prefer the old models or even the Prado, after all, the cost is lower. But having said that, the power of the new Land Cruiser also has an advantage over the Prado just mentioned in off-road. The V8 engine under the hood has a power output of 381 horsepower, and the towing capacity can reach 4000kg. In terms of off-road, the KDSS suspension of the Land Cruiser is also an equipment that car fans talk about, and it is also equipped with a full-time four-wheel drive system with a Torsen central differential lock. In terms of luxury configuration, as the top SUV of the Toyota family, although the Land Cruiser is not the ultimate luxury, it is still remarkable.
Lexus GX 460
Speaking of which, all Lexus models can be regarded as luxury versions of Toyota, and the same is true for this GX460. You can regard it as a luxury version of Prado, but you can also regard it as a small Land Cruiser. The GX 460 has a non-load-bearing body, a full-time four-wheel drive system, a two-stage transfer case, and an electronically controlled central differential lock. These equipment are basically the same as the Land Cruiser, but the body size is smaller. But after the optional third row of seats, GX 460 can also provide 7 seats. The V8 under the hood isn’t as good as the Land Cruiser’s, but the GX 460 is 300kg lighter than the Land Cruiser, so the 301bhp output still provides 3000kg of towing capacity. In terms of configuration, the GX 460 itself bears the Lexus logo, so there is no doubt about it. For example, the uphill start assist and steep slope descent functions are the most basic equipment. In addition, the popular app management is also popular among consumers. One of the functions.
Mercedes Benz G550 4×4
Mercedes-Benz G-class hard-core off-road also has quite a deep history, of course, this G550 4×4 is more powerful than the ordinary version of G-class, the ground clearance of 431mm is enough to ignore all off-road vehicles, and the three differential locks are also Mercedes-Benz G-class One of the advertised off-road advantages. The Mercedes-Benz Comand multimedia system is indispensable. In addition, as a top SUV model of Mercedes-Benz, this G-Class will not disappoint. Of course, the price may be the direct reason why many car fans are discouraged.
Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk
The most popular off-road vehicle in the Jeep family is of course the Wrangler, but the Grand Cherokee is also well recognized by car fans in terms of its luxurious configuration. The Trailhawk model added to the new Grand Cherokee has taken off-road capabilities to a higher level. Equipment such as tow hooks, Goodyear off-road tires and air suspension are very useful in off-road conditions. In addition, configurations such as electronically controlled rear differential locks, hill assist systems, and underbody guards are also essential. In addition to off-road, this Grand Cherokee can fully meet the needs of daily transportation, and is more comfortable than the Wrangler. The leather interior, multimedia system and other configurations are more practical for those customers who do not pursue off-road.
