New Top Gear magazine out now: the big OFF-ROAD issue
The Land Rover Defender takes on the Ford Bronco, the V8 Jeep Wrangler and the G-Wagen
Four proper, hardcore off-roaders; squared off and high riding; locking diffs coming out of their ears. That was the plan for this month’s off-road mega test…
We know most Defenders and G-Wagens are going to see little off-road action besides mounting a kerb on the school run, that 90 per cent of their capability will be pushed to the back of the shelf, and frankly we’re not angry about that. The ability of all these cars – the Defender, the G-Wagen, the Ford Bronco and the 6.4-litre V8-engined Jeep Wrangler – to crush a mountain one minute, and waft about doing the daily chores the next is truly remarkable. They excel at it all.
What we set out to do this month was open your (and our own) eyes to what these cars are really made of. To take on the knobbliest, gnarliest, wettest public byways the UK has to offer and have massive fun pushing the world’s toughest off-roaders to their limits... and beyond. See which one came out on top by grabbing a copy of the latest TG mag.
