4. Land Rover Defender

For most SUVs on this list, the future is uncertain, but not for the Defender. Despite the fact they discontinued it in 2016 after staying in production for almost 70 years, Land Rover announced it will replace it with a new improved model suitable for the 21st century. The history of the Defender started out of necessity due to the after war shortages in Great Britain. With its numerous qualities, small weight and off-road capabilities, the Land Rover soon became the ultimate off-road SUV (via Auto Trader) capable of crossing deserts, jungles, and all kinds of rough terrain.

The Defender soon became a popular military vehicle, so they produced it in numerous variants. Land Rover later introduced the Range Rover, a plush and comfortable off-road SUV, but the Defender remained in production. In the last couple of years, despite the popularity of the Defender, it was obvious that its days were numbered. The modern safety and environmental standards made the 70-year-old model obsolete. Land Rover didn’t have any choice but to retire the old model and announce a new one. They have revealed the Defender concept, but they have yet to present the final production version.

3. AMC EAGLE

It’s often interesting to see how some car manufacturers were ahead of their time. One of those manufacturers is the American Motors Company (AMC). One of their models was the Eagle, a passenger car lineup with a Jeep-derived all-wheel drive (via Silodrome). Also, it had great off-road capabilities in the form of a regular sedan, wagon or even a coupe. AMC conceived it in the late ’70s as their answer to the rising popularity of AWD vehicles and SUVs.

AMC wanted to combine their compact sedan and wagon lineup with the tough and proven Jeep AWD system. The result was a surprisingly capable vehicle with the comfort and luxury of a sedan. It had compact dimensions, a relatively low weight, and rugged off-road characteristics. The Eagle was one of the first crossover models in the world. It’s only today that people can see how important and influential this car was. AMC produced the Eagle with standard AWD.

2. Shelby F-150

Although Carroll Shelby never got a chance to see this truck, he would certainly approve of the insane 750 HP Shelby F-150 (via Motor Trend). After all, his company and legacy inspired the Ford Motor Company to build it.

Under the hood is a 5.0-liter supercharged V8 producing 750 HP and delivering Raptor-beating performance. With its insane price tag and eye-catching appearance, this Shelby F-150 is the definitive continuation of the iconic Shelby legend.

1. Zetros 2733 A 6WD

The Zetros is another all-wheel-drive beast on the list and a 6WD, for that matter. The 2733 A is based on an Actros platform. Some Unimog DNA is also involved, helping it offer amazing traction due to its proven mechanics and 6WD system. It has highly customizable living quarters. The weight of this six-wheeler ranges from 25 to 27 tons, which is a formidable number.

The Zetros 273A 6WD is a machine with a 7.2l inline 6-cylinder engine. It has approximately 1,000 feet per pound of torque at a low RPM, somewhere between 1,200 and 1,600. With those torque figures in mind, it’s clear the Zetros 2733 A 6WD can go anywhere (via Pktrucks). The interior of this RV is utilitarian to the max, which is expected because this is a car for hardcore outdoor use.
