If you long for the boxy, rugged looks of classic Rovers but want to keep the creature comforts of modern models, check out the Land Rover Defender X-Tech (£25,000; roughly $40,000). Available in three-door 90 or five-door 110 varieties, the X-Tech features a blocky front end with black on the roof, wheel arches, and headlight assemblies, a silver (90) or olive green (110) exterior, glossy black 16-inch "Saw Tooth" alloy wheels, a 2.4L common-rail diesel powerplant, and all the off-road chops you'd expect. If only they were selling it in the U.S.
Not content to let its competitors have all the off-road fun, GM is striking back with the GMC Sierra All Terrain HD ($TBA). This new concept features suspension upgrades, a higher ground clearance, and wider stance than the typical Sierra, along with a 6.6L Duramax diesel V8 pumping out 397 hp and 765 pound-feet of torque, rugged tires, and built-in cargo boxes on the sides of the bed.
Like something out of a video game, the Rally Fighter is a custom-designed off-roader that mixes sports car looks with Baja-tested utility. Wrapped in vinyl to reduce weight and cost, the Fighter features a tubular steel chassis and space frame, nose, rear, underbelly and floor pans made from carbon fiber, a 6.2 Liter, V8 Engine good for 430 hp and paired to an automatic transmission, rear wheel drive, four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes, and 17-inch aluminum alloy wheels, as well as 18 inches of suspension travel to help you traverse whatever the trail throws your way.

If you really love your first-person shooters — and we mean really — perhaps you'll be interested in the 2011 Jeep Wrangler Call of Duty: Black Ops Edition ($31,000-$33,500). Available in either traditional two-door or Unlimited four-door versions, these special edition off-roaders feature Mopar fuel doors and taillamp guards, a black exterior with Call of Duty: Black Ops logos on the roof and front quarter panels, an entirely black interior, and dark Rubicon wheels in a high-gloss Mineral Gray with 32-inch off-road tires. A copy of the game is, amazingly, not included, although if you can afford to blow nearly $35K on a video game-themed ride, you've probably got the extra $60 to shell out for a disc.
Like an ATV mixed with a Hummer and given a healthy dose of steroids, the Critter Gitter ($340,000) is an unstoppable force of oversized awesomeness. Weighing in at 13,250 lbs., powered by an 8.2L big-block V8, measuring 30 feet long, and sporting 64-inch tires, these crazy hunting vehicles let you go pretty much anywhere you need to get off the shot, whether you're hunting wild game, wild hog, or large packs of the undead.
