You can leave civilization behind with one of these capable trail machines.


On Motorious we have quite the selection of off-roaders, ranging from classics which are pushing 75 years-old to highly-built newer machines. In these times of social distancing and quarantines, it’s nice to get away from it all. And while some national parks and other outdoor areas have been closed off to public access, there are still some other getaway areas only accessible to those with a truly trail-capable off-roader. Plus, once things return to normal, you can continue to have adventures in your rig.

Following are the ten coolest off-roaders we have listed for sale on the site. Which one of these 4x4s would you take out into the wild?

1984 Jeep J10

10 Coolest Off-Roaders On Motorious

You’d have to live under a rock to not know the Toyota FJ40s are red-hot on the market. While we have plenty to choose from on the site, this LS-powered option is particularly appealing.

1969 Ford Bronco

10 Coolest Off-Roaders On Motorious

Another red-hot item these days, first-generation Ford Broncos like this one get people all hot and bothered. If you want to get in on the action before the new Bronco is unveiled by Ford, this one is an excellent option to consider.

This Ford is packing the 302ci V8 that was first available as an option for the 1969 model year. There are many other details making this Bronco ultra-collectible.

1976 International Harvester Scout
