After spending a week testing the latest 4x4 offerings in the dirt, it’s time to head back to the office and start crunching the numbers to see who won. While your waiting for us to announce the coveted Petersen’s 4-Wheel & Off-Road 4x4 of the year award, we wanted to put all of our weeklong testing coverage in one place.

Enjoy all the off-road action as we take our SUV contenders and Pickup contenders through trails in the mountains, awesome desert routes, and blast them through the sand. With vehicles that have awesome features including a center locking differential, selectable terrain options, adjustable suspension and plenty of power we’re going to have a tough time letting these vehicles go back. While we put on another pot of coffee and add up all the scores, watch some of these rigs in action!
