12) Toyota 4Runner: 9.6 inches
The rugged Toyota 4Runner remains on this list, with a healthy 9.6 inches of ground clearance. The TRD Pro model, in particular, stands out with its off-road capability, as Stephen showed tackling thick mud, deep water and ice in Canada. Prices start at $36,285 for a four-wheel drive SR5 model.
Under the hood is an archaic, but dependable 4.0-liter V6 with 270 horsepower and 278 lb-ft of torque. It comes mated to a five-speed automatic transmission.
