This Japanese Car Brand Goes Off-Roading More Than Land Rover

Truck YeahThe trucks are good!

Last year J.D. Power surveyed car owners on "whether or not they use their vehicles off paved roads." Jeep had the most "yeses," with 31% of owners claiming they left the pavement. Ram was right behind at 30.2%, followed closely by Subaru with 29.5% of owners reporting they hit the dirt.

Autoblog found these surveys and say Land Rover owners reported less off-roading than the top three and Ford, GMC, or Chevrolet drivers with "less than 20%" of people taking their Rovers off asphalt.

Man, I knew most new Land Rovers ended up in fancy corners of metropolises but I would have thought more than 20% of owners would at least tell survey-takers they bring their SUVs on adventures!

AB says Subaru really owns off-roading in wagons, with "some 34.7% of Outbacks [going] off paved roads, compared to its next-closest competitor, the Jeep Grand Cherokee, at a distant 21.1%."
