Cars are the passion for most of the men and their love for cars is quite old from history. Today’s modern cars aren’t as strong and robust as those from the 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s; some of them still justify to be considered tough. Furthermore, since they don’t actually have too much of a game, they can as well be rated the toughest production vehicles in the world. After all, they only race against one another here. Just to clarify once more: only currently produced cars will be acknowledged, so please don’t ask anything like: ‘Why’s there no XJ Jeeps, FJ Cruiser, Nissan Xterra, Landy Defender, Hummer H1, or similar vehicles.

Examples are simple, really. Apart from the fact that proposed wheels has to be in production for 2016 model year, it also demands to be able to take plenty of abuse. Furthermore, we have chosen to limit the number of models per manufacturer to only 1. We know that this might raise some eyebrows, but at least it will point out to some exciting choices which would otherwise persist beyond the margins. The three of the vehicle in the list are highly capable, strong cars which promise a long lifespan in most ultimate of conditions. Let’s take a look at them.
3. Ford F-150 Raptor

Ford F-150 lineup is as strong as the Rams, but Raptor versions of the full-size truck are something unique. Raptor is so special that we have chosen to include it even though it’s currently unavailable. Of course, a new aluminum-bolstered model is coming soon, as the 2017 year model, so we didn’t specifically skew the criteria too much. This off-road able pickup will feature different details of its own, plus a new twin-turbo 3.5L EcoBoost V6 engine which ensures better fuel economy than before.
2. Mercedes-Benz G-Class

G-Wagen is the most prominent oddball in German automaker’s lineup. It really doesn’t fit there no matter how hard we’re trying to convince ourselves otherwise. Related to sleek sedans, convertibles, coupes, SUV’s and hatchbacks alike, this behemoth completely sticks out on any given day. At least that performs for its design. When it comes to performance, though, whether it’s G550 or AMG G63 or AMG G65, G-Class is Mercedes-Benz as Mercedes-Benz gets. Plus it’s the powerful model in the entire lineup, and pretty much powerful car Germans have ever built.
1. Lada Niva

Unlike the G-Wagen which highlights plush, luxury interior, and latest technology, Lada Niva only gets the boxy, oddball look, outdated. Everything about the car is bumpy, hard and ready to withstand some major punishment. In fact, Niva still highlights the same 1977 design. In other words, Russian SUV looked precisely the same 40 years ago when it began the unibody crossover SUV revolution. Some people will assume it didn’t evolve because it was excellent from the get-go, but that’s more of a local joke than fact. The truth is; although Niva has lots of flaws, it’s still a reasonable car which you’ll push to the limits without feeling regret. And, boy, the limits Lada Niva can strike are outright crazy. It’s one of the strongest vehicles currently produced for a reason.
