It’s that time of year again. The staff has been busy putting the new-for-’03 vehicles through the paces--sand, hill, rockcrawling, racetrack, highway, and much more--to determine which is the Four Wheeler of the Year. While we are busy judging which vehicle performs best, we are wondering which one you think will win the coveted title.

Your choices?

Ford Excursion (6.0L PowerStroke diesel)

Hummer H2 (all-new vehicle)

Jeep Wrangler Rubicon (new off-road package)

Kia Sorento (all-new vehicle)

Lexus GX470 (all-new vehicle)
