3 Min Read May 23rd, 2022

If you love spending the weekends camping with your family, you'll know that having a good offroad vehicle is an essential part of the adventure, especially if you want to go off the beaten path!

We've done all of the hard work and rounded up Australia's best adventure vehicles for families, so you don't have to. Keep reading!

Toyota Land Cruiser

Most would say that the Toyota Land Cruiser is elite amongst its rivals.

This top-quality large SUV is capable of handling the trail and whatever terrain you throw at it. It's equipped with a surprisingly luxurious interior, boasting a massive amount of space -seating 8 people comfortably.

And if you need an extremely large cargo storage area for your family trip, folding the seats down will give you ample space.

To top it off, this modern, classic SUV has a 5.7 Litre V8 engine and roof racks.

  • Seats: 8

  • Engine: 5.7-litre V8, and (coming soon) 3.3-litre turbo-diesel V6

Ford Ranger

If functionality, space, comfort, and the ability to take you anywhere you want to go is a priority to you, the Ford Ranger ticks all the boxes.

This popular pickup truck comes with an excellent array of safety features and state-of-the-art driver-assist tech for peace of mind on the road.

Besides fitting any family lifestyle, the Ranger also doubles as a fantastic work vehicle for the days when you're not following the trail.

  • Seats: 4 in the SuperCab, or 5 in the SuperCrew

  • Engine: 3.0-litre V6 turbo diesel, 2.0-litre bi-turbo diesel, or 2.0-litre single turbo diesel

Subaru Outback

Another killer family crossover is the Subaru Outback.

Basically, all trims of the Outback come with a standard X-Mode Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system and 22 cm of ground clearance.

All models come with roof racks for the gear that doesn't already fit in the extremely spacious cargo area. You have the option of upgrading the interior with luxury leather upholstery, heated seats, and dual-zone air conditioning.

  • Seats: 5

  • Engine: naturally-aspirated 2.5-litre boxer engine

Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk

If you're ready to jump into the big leagues, the Grand Cherokee Trailhawk doesn't mess around.

With its impressive 4WD Low Range and a locking rear differential, it makes for a true off-roader being able to crawl over literally anything and get you out of sticky situations easily.

This sleek adventure vehicle is equipped with Jeep's Quadra-Drive II 4×4 system and a highly impressive 0 to 60 time of only 3.5 seconds.

Choose from its 5 different driving modes: auto, sport, snow, sand/mud, and rock - making any family adventure road trip an absolute breeze!

  • Seats: 5

  • Engine: Supercharged 6.2-litre V8

Toyota Tacoma TRD

The Tacoma TRD is a world-class mid-sized pickup truck, and its excellent upgrade packages make it a highly suitable vehicle for family off-roading.

Its massive truck bed provides more than enough space to load your bicycles, motorcycles, or stacks of camping gear and luggage.

The interior is equally as spacious (for a pickup truck), making for a practical yet comfortable road trip.

  • Seats: 4 in the Access Cab, and 5 in the Double Cab

  • Engine: 3.5-litre V6 engine

Jeep Wrangler Rubicon

Jeep Wrangler Rubicon

The Jeep Wrangler Rubicon is arguably the most off-road capable vehicle of them all.

If you can put aside the fact that it isn't the most spacious or comfortable car for the benefit of having some serious adventures where no terrain is too brutal - this SUV is a winner.

It offers electric locking differentials for its axels, 27.4 cm of ground clearance, hardcore all-terrain tyres, and a classic, rugged design.

  • Seats: 5

  • Engine: 6.4-litre V8, or 3.6-litre non-turbo V6

Porsche Cayenne

If you're looking for a high-end SUV with off-road capabilities, you'll be nothing short of impressed by the Porsche Cayenne.

This car perfectly combines style, luxury, power, and excellent handling.

Whether its potholes, mud, rocky slopes, or streams, the central differential locking system and 27 cm of ground clearance make off-roading in this vehicle an excellent experience.

  • Seats: 5

  • Engine: 3.6-litre VR6

Final Words

Whether you're looking for a weekend adventure vehicle that doubles as an everyday city car, or you're planning a long cross-country road trip with the family and need a robust, spacious offroader - you are sure to find it on this list!
