GM’s Hummer is making its return in a few new electrified versions & details just dropped on the SUV variant. The 2024 Hummer EV SUV is shorter overall than the recently revealed pickup with 16” of clearance. It boasts 4-wheel steering & an Infinity Roof that features removable T-Top style panels for an open-roof ride. It is estimated to deliver 350-miles of range with 1000 horsepower under its hood.
With 518 horsepower under the hood, the forthcoming Land Rover Defender V8 will become the most powerful production Landie ever produced. Available in both the 90 & 110 models for 2022, the supercharged 5.1-liter V8 delivers heavy horsepower & 461 ft. lbs. of torque. 0-60 in 4.9 and a top speed of 149 MPH. Not bad for a boxy British 4X4. Several trim packages & unique exterior packs will be offered as well as hundreds of dedicated accessories.
Paying homage to the Camel Trophy Land Rovers that tamed the world’s toughest terrain, the forthcoming Land Rover Defender Works V8 Trophy merges off-road legacy with modern performance. Only 25 of these unique rides will be constructed, using vintage survivor bodies and Rover’s 400-hp V8 mated to an eight-speed automatic tranny. This “Works” variant also features a winch, roll cage, roof rack, underbody armor, a raised air-intake, LED spotlights and mud tires. Eastnor Yellow paint completes the vintage vibe.
With the launch of the 2021 Tremor Edition, Ford is offering yet another new factory package in the F-150 lineup. This one is all about off-road upgrades but doesn’t go full Raptor. Powered by a 3.5-liter V6, the Tremor includes beefed-up suspension and shocks to give it a stance that’s an inch wider than stock plus there’s a bash plate underneath. Equipped with standard 4WD, it rides on 33-inch AT tires mounted on matte-finish 18s. The interior upgrades are pretty slick too.
For Dodge, 2021 marks the 75th anniversary of its iconic Ram Power Wagon utility truck. To celebrate the milestone, they’ve created a special edition of the 2021 Ram 2500. Special anniversary features include 75th badges and branding, upgraded brown leather seats, and a blacked-out trim package. Available early 2021.

The Hummer is back. Yes, General Motors’ long-shuttered Hummer operation is rising from the ashes as the Hummer EV, an all-electric super truck boasting a 350-mile range, 1000 horsepower, and get this—a diagonal off-road driving feature called Crab Mode. As the flagship of GM’s massive push into the EV market, the Hummer EV runs on an all-new modular electric vehicle platform and battery system known as Ultium. Sold under the GM brand, the first of several new Hummer models will reach dealerships in fall of 2021.
For 2021, Jeep has completely re-designed & upgraded their flagship Grand Wagoneer. With a larger body modeled on the Dodge Ram 1500 pickup, the new GW offers 3-row seating and a level of luxury beyond anything Jeep has ever produced. It will be offered with both a plug-in hybrid drivetrain as well as various levels of gas-powered performance.
The 2021 Ram 1500 TRX is a juiced-up off-road-ready weapon built to send the Ford Raptor flapping back to its nest. Dodge claims that 75% of the TRX build is different from the stock 1500. Way gnarlier obviously. Powered by a Hellcat motor, it delivers 702 horsepower for a 0-60 time of 4.5, boasts a BorgWarner 48-13 transfer case with a rock crawl-friendly low range of 2.64:1, an 8,100-pound towing capacity, plus a high-tech leather-clad interior.

Powered by a 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V-6 engine that delivers 28 MPG, Jeep’s new Gladiator Farout concept is designed for long range, off-road missions. Overlanding. 37” mud tires, Fox Shocks, Warn winch. Its class-leading 4×4 payload allows for a full roof-top tent—which pops up in seconds and sleeps 4. The interior of the Farout features a fridge and stove as well as smoke blue leather with orange stitching.
With their vintage Land Rover series III SUVs converted into modern, zero-emission electric vehicles, Zero Labs Automotive is cleaning up a classic with remarkably fine form. Carefully selected donor vehicles undergo a complete mechanical re-build replacing the petrol powertrain with an electronic one that produces between 300-600 horsepower with a range of up to 235 miles. The interiors are also completely re-done, featuring a clean and minimalist, retro design that’s a perfect match with the 1970-1985 Rover styling
Some will call it sacrilege others will call it cool, but either way, Twisted Automotive’s Electrified Defender 90 is a rad little Rover. Using the soft-top 90 model, the British workshop has created what they call the NAS-E, swapping petrol power for an EV drivetrain that outputs 214 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque in an AWD design. Its range is more than 200 miles. Only 30 of these silent killers will be made.
Certain corners of the internet have been buzzing for years about the day Ford would finally bring back the Bronco. Well, at long last, the day has arrived. The 2021 Ford Bronco is here & it’s every bit the modern Hot Wheels truck everyone’s been hoping for. Boxy AF. Very short wheelbase. Available with 2 or 4 doors and 2 engine options so far—both EcoBoost turbos, it will also be available in the trail-ready Sasquatch trim package, which boasts HOSS (High-Performance Off-Road Stability Suspension) for crawling right past those Wrangler Rubicons & into the wild.
Created from the ground-up in homage to the original off-road adventure-mobile, the iconic Land Rover Defender, Ineos’ forthcoming Grenadier SUV is designed to perform in the world’s harshest environments—a hardworking, utilitarian 4X4 & decidedly un-luxurious. African safari-tough yet modern. Created through an engineering partnership with Magna Steyr, the Grenadier’s full specs and build sheet are still under wraps. Due for release late 2021.
With the (partial) unveiling of the new Hercules 6X6 SUV, California’s custom carmaker Rezvani blows past expectations yet again. This new super-luxury ’yute is excessive & overbuilt in every way; but not really an off-roader, it’s more of an exotic accessory; the ideal ride for Rodeo Drive or cruising Dubai’s Sheik Zayed road. All we know for sure so far: it’s huge, has 6-wheels & pre-order is open now.
Just like GMC’s Yukon & Suburban, the Cadillac Escalade is also getting a full update for 2021. The 2021 model is 7-inches longer with 11 more cubic feet of storage space, and is marked by a new grill and front-end look as well as LED lighting. It is powered by a 6.2-liter V8 good for 420 horsepower, and a diesel motor will also be offered. Inside there’s a 38-inch curved infotainment display, great for viewing while you have the SUV in hands-free, semi-autonomous driving mode.
Let’s face it, making a classic Land Cruiser FJ43 look cool is pretty easy. It came that way. Modern men’s fashion-maven Todd Snyder saw an opening though. He thought the addition of a leather interior—using the same leather from Red Wing’s Heritage Classic boots—would make a sweet upgrade. He was right! Of course this Limited FJ also got a ground-up restoration to bring all systems up to 2020 performance. The slate gray paint was borrowed from Porsche and the vintage 2-door got a completely new 228-horse 4.0-liter V6 and tranny.
GMC just rolled out the new Yukes. That’s the 2021 Yukon, Yukon XL and off-road ready Yukon AT4. Overall, the new model is bigger, with a longer wheelbase and offers more cargo space as well as lots of optional toys and treats—like available air suspension and a 420-hp 6.2-liter V8 or the Denali’s 15-inch multicolor head-up display. Look for the new Yukon—in its full-range of trims & power options—to arrive at dealers by mid-summer.
For 2021, Chevy’s full-size Suburban & Tahoe SUVs will both be longer with more interior space, and the ride comfort significantly smoothed out due to the addition of both independent rear suspension and adaptive suspension all around. The driver gets a 10-inch color infotainment system that supports Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Optional 12.6” screens can be added for rear passengers. “Over the Air” update technology is also new for the 2021 models.
Iconic American workwear brand Carhartt teamed up with Chevy on a rugged, hardworking special edition 2021 Silverado 2500 LTZ crew cab. Based on a Z71 Off-Road model it features Rancho shocks, Hill Descent Control, 20-inch A/T tires and skid plates. Lowkey gold Carharrt branding & a special Mosaic Black Metallic paint color complete the package.
With the beast of a Ford F-550 as its base, the EarthRoamer LTi is the ultimate overland adventure machine.
