Jeeps have long been the gold standard for off roading vehicles. Since the Jeep brand first introduced its vehicles in the 1940s, the Jeep name has been known for vehicles that can handle any type of terrain.
Solid front and rear axles help Jeeps tackle the rocky climbs and unpredictable surfaces you encounter off road. You can beef up your Jeep’s capabilities by adding a jeep suspension lift or a lift kit. Here are some of the best Jeeps for off road adventures in 2020.
2020 Jeep Gladiator
With the build of a Jeep and the added storage of a pickup truck bed, the 2020 Gladiator is an option from Jeep’s Trail Rated line. Most of the build comes from the Jeep Wrangler, with the addition of a 5-foot truck bed at the rear. All trim levels of the Gladiator come with four-wheel drive, as well as the sturdy axles that help define the Jeep brand. The Rubicon model packs the most trail-ready features, including skid plates, rock rails and all-terrain tires. You’ll be able to take on rocky climbs and tricky stream beds with the locking front and rear differentials. A truck cargo rack adds an extra level of adventure readiness to the factory models.
2020 Jeep Wrangler
Like the Gladiator, every model of the Jeep Wrangler comes with four-wheel drive and off-road-ready front and rear axles. Considerable approach and departure angles allow you to handle bumpy rides across a wide variety of surfaces. The Wrangler has almost 11 inches of ground clearance, meaning you’ll be able to clear most rocks and other obstacles. Add led lighting for trucks to a roof rack to adapt this option for nighttime or low-light driving conditions.
2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk
If you’re looking for interior room and comfort on your ride, the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk mixes the ruggedness of a top-of-the-line off-roader with the comfort of a city vehicle. This model comes with air-spring suspension that can go up to 10.8 inches of lift, giving the effect of suspension lifts with the push of a button. There are plenty of traction control settings to choose from, including special modes for going up or down hills while maintaining your grip. The Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk comes with jeep wheels, all-terrain tires, recovery hooks on the front and rear, and different terrain modes for driving in snowy, rocky or sandy situations.
2020 Jeep Compass Trailhawk
If you’re looking for a subcompact option, the Jeep Compass Trailhawk offers about the same amount of interior space as the Jeep Cherokee in the subcompact category. This model comes with 17-inch wheels and all-terrain tires, as well as an all-wheel drive system. The suspension is optimized to provide enough ground clearance for going off road. Go with the optional rock rails to protect against damage on rocky roads.
2020 Jeep Renegade Trailhawk
The smallest of Jeeps Trail Rated options, the Jeep Renegade Trailhawk has all-wheel drive, 17-inch wheels and 8.7 inches of ground clearance. An underbody protection system guards against damage, while a terrain-management system allows you to handle all types of surfaces.
With a sturdy new Jeep in hand, you can add custom accessories to take on off road adventures.
