10 Toughest Vehicles in the World Currently in Production

I know, I know: “They just don’t build them like that anymore.” Still, even though modern cars aren’t as sturdy and robust as those from the fifties, sixties, seventies, eighties and nineties, some of them still deserve to be considered tough. Furthermore, since they don’t really have too much of a competition, they can as well be considered the toughest production vehicles in the world. After all, they only compete against one another here. Just to clarify once more: only currently produced cars will be considered, so please don’t ask anything like: “Why’s there no FJ Cruiser, Landy Defender, Nissan Xterra, Hummer H1, XJ Jeeps or similar vehicles.”


Criteria are simple, really. Apart from the fact that prospective vehicle has to be in production for 2016 model year, it also needs to be able to take plenty of abuse. Furthermore, we have decided to limit the number of models per manufacturer to only one. We know that this might raise some eyebrows, but at least it’ll point out to some interesting choices which would otherwise remain beyond the margins. All of the vehicles from the list are highly capable, sturdy cars which promise a long lifespan in most extreme of conditions. Let’s take a look at them, shall we?

About Nikola Potrebić

Although driving a piece of junk, Nikola is a true car enthusiast. Precious few things move him as muscle cars do - especially those from the bygone golden era. Which makes him wonder; why wasn't he born a few decades earlier? Well, at least he's been able to enjoy the likes of Pontiak Aztek, Fiat Multipla, and their "lovely" coevals this way - right? (sigh)
