Buckle up and head off on a road trip! Who knows where your adventuring will take you – a long way from home perhaps or alternatively on a cross country trip across the wilderness. Wherever your destination, an adventure requires a good reliable vehicle that can cope with all terrains. Luckily, there are some fantastically iconic vehicles out there that will not let you down.
One great adventure vehicle is the Hummer. First marketed in 1992 and based on the military Humvee, this iconic vehicle certainly has the right look for any adventure. Ideal as an off road vehicle, because of its high ground clearance and gear ratio, it is brilliant in all types of rough terrain including water. You can pick up a Hummer fairly cheaply these days but be warned ; it is known as heavy on gasoline, so you will need to consider your fuel costs.
The Jeep Wrangler is still in production but whether you buy a spanking new model or go for something with a bit more history, you are buying into some iconic vehicle history. Jeeps are best known as WWII vehicles, and the appearance of these SUVs has not really altered in the last 70 years, although a modern day Jeep wrangler is far most comfortable.
Buying a Jeep Wrangler is not cheap. However, these iconic vehicles do hold their value well. According to a survey carried out by a leading car magazine, the Jeep Wrangler has the lowest depreciation of value over a five year period.
Choosing the right vehicle for an adventure gives you plenty of scope, and you don’t have to buy new in order to find the perfect ride for you. One great vintage vehicle is the Ford Bronco, which dates from the 1960s to the early 90s.
Despite the age, the Ford Bronco is a fantastic car. The early models were marketed as sports utility vehicles and they were developed purely for the off road market. Rugged, powerful, and reliable, there are still plenty of Ford Broncos from the 1970s still on the road, and these iconic vehicles hold their value well. Representing classic Americana, these great vehicles just make you want to climb into the driver’s seat and hit the road or the field or the beach, river, or mountain – they are good in all types of terrain.
Buying a classic vehicle does not have to be expensive. An old Hummer, Jeep Wrangler, or Ford Bronco can be just as reliable as a brand new car if it has been well maintained. The advantages of choosing one of these adventuring beauties is that it really will take you anywhere in safety.
Whether you are fording a river or driving through a dangerous urban neighborhood, you know that you are safely protected in your SUV. These cars are the ultimate safety vehicles, so that even if your adventure takes an unexpectedly dangerous turn, you can be confident that driving an iconic vehicle like this will never let you down.
