Amphibious Sherp ATV's big wheels keep on turning, no matter the terrain

When we initially saw the Sherp ATV rolling its way around the Internet, our first thought was that it must be the work of a designer, not a real vehicle. The compact body tucked between ginormous off-road tires just looked too odd to be real. But the Russian vehicle is indeed real and it's one hell of a way to drive over anything short of a sheer cliff face.

Review: 2016 Toyota Land Cruiser lets you safari in comfort

The legendary Land Cruiser brings to mind visions of great adventures on the savannah, where lions roar in the evening and herds of water buffalo rumble by in the distance. The urbane looks of the 2016 Toyota Land Cruiser seem well and truly at odds with that image, yet underneath the rough-and-ready capability of the LC of old is still there. This Toyota can race the rhino with any of its forebears. It will just look classier doing it.

Zarooq Sand Racer to tear across the desert (and pavement, too)

We recently got a look at the all-new W Motors Fenyr Supersport, an ultra-aggressive, highly exclusive exotic supercar from the United Arab Emirates. One of the creative forces behind that car has now revealed an automotive vision from a very different corner of his mind. The Sand Racer from startup Zarooq Motors is arguably every bit as cool as the Fenyr, but it's designed to thrash about on hot sand instead of just asphalt.

US Specialty Vehicles gives the Jeep Wrangler a mean new look

Few would argue against the idea that the Jeep Wrangler remains one of the most off-road-capable 4x4s on the planet it roams. California-based aftermarket builder US Specialty Vehicles sees some room for improvement in the way the Wrangler expresses its intentions, though. It's slapped a rugged, military-style body kit on the four-door Wrangler Unlimited and upgraded the interior into a warm, supple space. The result is the Rhino XT, the all-terrain SUV reinvented.

Jeep's Wrangler Red Rock Concept previews special edition

The all-new Jeep Wrangler Red Rock Concept looks like the type of package that Jeep would have revealed at the Easter Jeep Safari earlier this year. Although Jeep saved it for SEMA, the package is inspired by the 50th anniversary of the annual Jeep lovers' gathering in Moab and the Red Rock 4-Wheelers club that organizes it. The concept's upgrades make the already-rugged Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon Hard Rock even bigger and tougher.
