If you enjoy desert off-roading, Arizona is one of the best places to get the ultimate experience. Traversing the desert landscapes of Arizona, however, calls for a rugged vehicle. If budget is a constraint, you can always turn to AutoBidMaster’s online auctions featuring salvage cars in Phoenix to find unbeatable deals on a range of SUVs and trucks that are ideal for off-roading. Let’s look at vehicles that you can buy for off-roading adventures in Arizona.
Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro
Propelled by a massive V6 engine mated with a five-speed automatic transmission, the Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro is a great choice for off-roading. While the platform, powertrain, and design may be old, everything else is pretty modern. The SUV features Nitto all-terrain tires, 2.5 inch TRD-tuned Fox shocks, TRd springs, and thick skid plates. You can also expect an electronic locking rear differential and multi-terrain select system from Toyota. You can also go for the cheaper TRD Off-Road trim equipped with a Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System (KDSS) for an even better off-roading experience.
Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro
The TRD Pro lineup from Toyota received a major upgrade in 2019 with the addition of Fox Racing Shocks. It offers improved off-road performance with zero compromise on daily comfort owing to the progressive stiffening of the internal-bypass shocks as the suspension compresses. The Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro also has remote oil reservoirs in the back shocks, allowing it to conquer even the roughest terrain. You will always have the desired grip; thanks to Toyota’s five mode Multi-Terrain Select system that comes standard on the Tacoma TRD Pro.
Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison
The Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison, just like its animal namesake, is serious business. The truck is the result of collaboration with American Expedition Vehicles (AEV). It features an AEV steel bumper complete with fog lights and winch mounting plate, huge fender flares, steel skid plates, 17-inch wheels, and 31-inch tires. You also get Multimatic remote-reservoir dampers, locking differentials at both ends, cast-iron control arms, a 2-inch lift, and a 3.5-inch wider track than the ZR2.
The Mercedes-Benz G-Class started off as a very capable military vehicle and went on to be a must-have for celebrities. Despite progressively becoming a more luxurious vehicle over the years, it still conquers off-road terrain with the same tenacity. It features a two-speed transfer case and three locking differentials. Non-AMG models also boast a G Mode which changes the powertrain stability control systems, and traction control for enhanced performance.
Other vehicles that fit the bill include the Toyota Land Cruiser, Ford F-150 Raptor, Land Rover Defender, and Jeep Wrangler Rubicon.
