There are plenty of trucks that can rock crawl, but only a few that can really fly.

The horsepower wars aren’t restricted to sports cars. More and more automakers are cranking up their extreme off-road SUVs and Fox News Autos has corralled the most powerful models available from each brand.

Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro

The 4Runner has been around for over a decade, but it’s only gotten better with age. The latest TRD Pro model features a lifted ride height and a 270 hp 4.0-liter V6 that isn’t all that potent compared to the competition, but is as reliable as a rock.

Ford Bronco Raptor

The upcoming Ford Bronco Raptor is arguably the most high-performance off-road SUV yet. Its turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 has more than 400 hp, which isn’t tops in the class by far, but it rides on a long-travel suspension that allows it to drive across the desert at high speeds and get some serious air over jumps.

Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392

Jeep fans had to wait a few decades for the first V8-powered Wrangler to debut, but it was worth it. The four-door’s 6.4-liter V8 is borrowed from Dodge’s muscle cars and rated at a nicely-balanced 470 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque that allows it to accelerate to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds.

Land Rover Defender V8

The Land Rover Defender literally supercharges the rebooted SUV with a 518 hp supercharged 5.0-liter V8 that makes it the most-powerful two-door SUV on sale today, but it is also available in a four-door model.

Mercedes-AMG G63

The Mercedes-Benz G-Class is a more common sight in Beverly Hills than out in the hills, but the high performance body-on-frame Mercedes-AMG G63 model is a real-deal truck with a fully locking 4×4 system and a 577 hp 4.0-liter V8 that can be equipped with a Trail package to help put them to work in the dirt.

Rivian R1S

American electric truck startup Rivian wasn’t messing around when it designed its first SUV. The R1S is equipped with four individual electric motors that provide a combined 835 hp that helps it climb the highest mountain trails without having to worry about the thin air sapping its power and can rocket it to 60 mph in about three seconds.
