9. 2004 Land Rover Discovery II
The 2004 Land Rover Discovery is one of the best models from the popular off-road brand to drive. Featuring a 4.6 liter engine and a locking center differential, the Discovery II provides the driver with some of the best visibility of all of the top 4×4’s out there, and it also includes an excellent payload capability and overall feel to the vehicle. Without adding any mods to the vehicle, it performs well above average off-road in stock condition, and provides the classic Land Rover adventure style that other models of the vehicle got away from. The Discovery II does have extremely low gas mileage on the negative front and it does take an owner who knows how to turn a wrench at times to keep it going off-road.
