The number of modern sport utility vehicles that will witness the offroad in their lifetime is extremely small. This is especially true for luxury models, but a vehicle that has a 6-figure price tag cannot carry the SUV moniker just for show. Today we will show you the world’s poshest all-terrain machines that can’t be distinguished from luxury yachts on wheels, but when the pavement runs out their 4-wheel drive systems, locking differentials and air suspensions would guarantee seamless operation in the deepest mud.

#1 2022 Lexus LX
Unlike its J300 Land Cruiser sibling, the new generation LX has made it across the pond and is already available for purchase on the American market. The SUV adopts 441-pound lighter GA-F platform and abandons its usual gas guzzling V8 in favor of a powerful 3.5L Twin Turbo V6.
#2 Rezvani Tank
Your only way to drive a tank on a highway is this military style SUV by the California-based Rezvani. Despite having no tracks, the 4×4 model offers superior go anywhere capabilities, while underneath its wild exterior, hides a heavily modified JL Jeep Wrangler.
#3 Hummer EV SUV
General Motors are putting a big bet on the resurrected Hummer brand that might even challenge Cadillac as the new luxury flagship of the conglomerate. Based on the identical platform as the EV Truck, this SUV expands the passenger comforts at the cost of slightly downgraded specifications.
#4 2022 Range Rover
Introduced to the market in 1969, the Range Rover became the world’s original luxury 4×4. Half a century later, this British icon enters the fifth generation.
#5 2023 Jeep Grand Wagoneer
It’s not widely known, but back in 1966, Kaiser Jeep Super Wagoneer became the world’s original luxury 4×4 SUV, actually beating the Range Rover to the market. After a 30 year hiatus, the Grand Wagoneer moniker is making a comeback, and this time it doubles down on Jeeps legendary off-road capability.
#6 2022 Toyota Land Cruiser
Continuously produced since 1951, this off-road icon remains a legitimate body on frame SUV that benefits from the move to the GA-F platform. The 2022 Toyota Land Cruiser keeps the overall dimensions of its predecessor but weighs almost 450 pounds less.
#7 2022 Mercedes-Benz G-Class
Initially launched as a body-on-frame military vehicle with superior off-roading skills, the Gellentwagen has evolved into full-on luxury SUV with solid performance parameters. Today, the G-Class is built by Magna Steyr in Graz, Austria, and depending on the market, it is offered with a turbo 4-cyllinder, a V8, and 2.9L turbo diesel.
#8 2022 Rolls Royce Cullinan
The first AWD Rolls Royce was designed to appeal to the younger generation of ultra-wealthy drivers, who might even work up the nerve to even take it off-road. The 2022 Rolls Royce Cullinan is offered in the standard and dark Black Badge variants, powered by a 6.75L V12 that produces 563 and 592 horsepower.
#9 2021 Lamborghini Urus Off-Road
The Lamborghini Urus is already known as one of the fastest SUVs out there, but in 2020, the Italian bull brand decided it needs an off-road boost for those customers who don’t mind getting their quarter million SUV dirty. To make this happen, the SUV gets an Off-road package option.
#10 2022 Bentley Bentayga S 2022
A Bentayga was never envisioned as an SUV to drive through debris, mud, rocks and deserts, but its permanent all-wheel drive, air suspension with continuous damping and a super powerful engine beg to differ.
#11 Project Maybach
This electric show car has been created under the guidance of the influential fashion designer Virgil Abloh, who passed away last year. The Project Maybach is a 20-feet long off-road 2-door that boasts radical proportions, ultra-thick all-terrain tires, plus an elegant limousine-level interior.
