Best Four-Wheel-Drive SUVs of 2020

If you need your SUV to provide more than just a spacious interior, there are a host of capable four-wheel-drive SUVs on the market. Some are equipped for only lighter off-road ventures, while others have features like low-range gearing and locking differentials that make them suitable for some really rough terrain. With so many different drivetrains available, it can be difficult to figure out which 4WD vehicle should be at the top of your list.

It’s not only about the mechanicals, though, as the best four-wheel-drive SUVs also have superior ground clearance and approach/departure angles that make them well-suited for the rough stuff. Our detailed reviews will also take into account on-road comfort, performance, available features, and the optional packages that can increase your chosen 4x4’s capability. We’ll also cover warranty coverage, reliability ratings, and compare each model with its closest competitors. It’s everything you need to find the 4WD SUV of your dreams.
