1. Ford Bronco
The Bronco nameplate returns after a 25-year hiatus to challenge the Jeep Wrangler’s status quo, with legit body-on-frame construction, standard 4×4 drive, and adventure-ready two or four door design.
2. Hummer EV SUV
The new Hummer’s modular platform allows it to offer more body styles than the pickup truck it debuted with. The Hummer SUV will be available in 2024 with a 9-inch shorter wheelbase to improve off-road manoeuvrability.
3. Volkswagen T-Roc Cabriolet
Not deterred by the failures of the convertible Nissan Murano and Range Rover Evoque, Volkswagen decided to enter the segment with a new 2-door, soft-top version of their subcompact T-Roc crossover.
4. Land Rover Defender 110 Project Prevail by ECD
Despite the addition of a soft top, the Evoque Convertible retains its true crossover stance, sporty lines, and elevated seating position, allowing even rear passengers to enjoy unparalleled 360-degree visibility.
5. Jeep Wrangler 4xe
Wrangler is the latest Jeep to try out a new plug-in hybrid powertrain, which will be available in early 2021. A 2-liter gasoline engine, a 17kWh battery with a range of 25 miles, and two electric motors combine to produce 375 horsepower.
6. Ford Bronco by Velocity Restorations
The all-new Bronco is a solid buy for the driver seeking an adventurous vehicle, but anyone ready to spend cash on a true collector’s item, should look into the stock of the Florida based Velocity Restorations.
7. Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Convertible
Despite gaining a soft top, the Evoque Convertible retains its true crossover stance, sporty lines and raised seating position, thanks to which even the rear passengers can enjoy unparalleled 360-degree sightlines.

8. Mercedes-Benz G650 Landaulet
The Mercedes-Benz G650 Landaulet has become as uncommon as the Bugatti Veyron in just four years, and its price has nearly quadrupled. There are various reasons for this, in addition to the SUV’s restricted manufacturing of 99 units.
9. Toyota Land Cruiser ICON FJ40 Roadster
The ICON FJ40 Roadster was unveiled at the 2017 SEMA exhibition and is based on the legendary FJ40 generation Toyota Land Cruiser that was created in the 1960s. The truck retains its tough appearance, but it loses its doors and windows, and its metal top is replaced with a removable piece of cloth.
10. Mercedes-Benz G250D Wolf by Legacy Overland
Despite the fact that the new G-Class looks quite similar to its predecessors, genuine aficionados of robust 4x4s continue to choose its unmatched, military grade variants. Legacy Overland, based in Connecticut, is one of these enthusiasts, having restored the 1990 W461.4, also known as the G-Wagen Wolf, to its former glory.
