While the current-generation Range Rovers have all the serious off-road capabilities you'd expect, the majority of these sleek SUVs will never leave the pavement. So why not make them even more luxurious and presidential. As it's name implies, the 2014 Land Rover Range Rover Long Wheelbase ($TBA) is a slightly stretched edition with a longer wheelbase (not seen from Land Rover in about 20 years) that gives you (or your kids, boss, or king) lots of room to spread out. With seats that recline 17 degrees, side door blinds, a panoramic sunroof, lots of storage, massive 22-inch wheels, and an immaculately appointed interior, there's few other SUVs that offer more. Available this March.
The monster luxury SUV you've all been waiting for is finally here, and the 2015 Cadillac Escalade ($TBA) is better than ever. Under the roof you'll find an interior wrapped in leather and wood from front to back, a quieter ride due to a stronger body structure, sound dampening, and Bose Active Noise Cancellation technology. Under the hood a 420 horsepower 460 lb-ft torque 6.2-liter V8 pushes both the two-wheel-drive and four-wheel-drive variants, while variable-assist power steering and cylinder deactivation help it get more miles between fill-ups. The dash is also crammed with tech — a 12.3-inch digital gauge display and an eight-inch center screen connect you with the car, using touch and gesture recognition, proximity sensors, and voice recognition. Choose between standard, luxury, and premium models to add 22-inch wheels, driver awareness technology, and a driver assist package.
When you want the performance of a modern truck, but don't like the bulky appearance of most trucks today, sometimes the only option is to go with a rebuilt classic like the Legacy Dodge Carryall ($160,000) (from the guys who brought you this). After completing a stage three restoration — returning these trucks to the way they looked coming off the factory floor — they undergo an impressive modernization. They feature an updated interior with modern safety and climate features, as well as modern suspension, brakes, and power train (choose from a 425 horsepower V8 or a 3.9-liter Cummins turbo diesel). They're each finished off with a beautiful rotisserie paint job, in colors like flame red and army gloss green.
So you've got your beach house — and a great little boat at the end of your pier for jetting around the water — now what you really need is a Moke International ($TBA) for cruising on land. If you've spent any measure of time in a beach town, you may have run across one of its older siblings, but this model is brand new, and ready for modern roads. Choose between a gasoline-powered four-cylinder version, or a completely-electric version. They come in a number of colors, including orange, red, green, yellow, blue, white, and of course, black.
The 2015 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class ($TBA) isn't your average grocery-getter — sure, this crossover SUV is fit for the roads, but it's also a pretty capable off-road adventurer. Powered by a turbocharged two-liter, four-cylinder engine producing a healthy 208 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque, it'll overtake drivers on the highway and get you comfortably to your mountain getaway (thanks in-part to 4-Matic all-wheel drive). Its striking design features give the GLA a powerful look without sacrificing aerodynamics. Inside, a flexible cargo-area and rear-folding seats give you plenty of room for skis and backpacks, or a whole-lot of toilet paper from Costco.
