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.
Born out of a lifelong love for the classic Toyota Land Cruiser, the Icon FJ Series ($126,000 and up) is a modern re-imagining of the legendary off-roader. Available in three body styles, the FJ's features include a standard 5.3 Liter, 350hp V8 engine, four-wheel disc brakes, Dynatrac Dana 60/40 based axles, Marine-rated vinyl on the seats, an Atlas II transfer case, aluminum knobs, sport pedals, an optional soft top, aeronautics-inspired dash panles, and a Teflon polyester hybrid powder coat that can stand up to the worst punishment you can dish out, even if that's just a trip over potholed suburban streets.
Placing third in Egypt's Pharaoh's Rally is no easy task, especially for a auto-making unit that recently switched ownership — but that's exactly what the QT Wildcat 500DKR ($TBA). Billed as a "full-blown rally raid machine," this mean off-roader is powered by a 4-liter Jaguar V8 good for 275hp, and features a fully ruggedized chassis, drivetrain, and electronics, including a high-strength steel space frame, a light weight composite body shell, larger dampers with coil over springs capable of handling more punishment than you're likely to dish out, and more.
