Nothing can stop you from getting your workout in, so you need a vehicle that can keep up with you and your active lifestyle. Whether you need to tote extra exercise equipment, explore off-road sites, or reach your destinations with a minimum of fuss and bother, the right vehicle is vital. Keeping in mind the need for speed, toughness, and cargo space, here’s a selection of the top vehicles for people with active lifestyles.
Looking for time and space? The Toyota Tacoma pickup can be equipped with a V6 engine, which provides plenty of power along with its four-wheel-drive. The Tacoma handles well on rough roads as well as off-road, and drives even better on city streets. As for space, the bed can carry just about whatever you throw into it. Although it’s probably not the best vehicle for a big family, but two active folks can drive comfortably in the cabin. Reach the furthest reaches of the forest, mountains, or desert and be refreshed and ready to go when you do.
The Subaru Outback provides lots of space inside and has a rack on top, leaving enough room for luggage, equipment, and even bicycles for a weekend trip. It handles great on the highway and off the main roads with all-wheel-drive and plenty of clearance between the undercarriage and the ground, as well as bringing a lot of power to the fore with its engine. The interior is plush and comfy as well, with climate control and room to stretch. The infotainment system will definitely keep passengers entertained, too.
Go with an off-road classic with a long-time history of dealing with bad roads and obstacles—the Jeep Wrangler. While you may lack cargo space, the Jeep can get you in and out of any place with its four-wheel-drive and V6 engine, as well as over and around whatever that place throws at you. The Jeep’s open design ensures plenty of healthy fresh air and sunshine. Jeeps can run a bit steep in price, but they traditionally have high resale values and plenty of fans seeking to pick one up.
Dodge Ram Power Wagon
With a military pedigree and known for decades as rough and tough workhorses, the reputation of the Dodge Ram pickup truck makes it one of the top vehicles for people with active lifestyles. While most pickups are intended for city and rural work, the Power Wagon has been modified to provide more ground clearance for off-road driving. The V8 should be powerful enough to get you out of any jams, and the suspension will keep you effortlessly rolling over rocky terrain. There’s also plenty of room inside for the family and all its cargo to ride in cozy comfort.
