The Grand Theft Auto (GTA) Online world is filled with a wide range of vehicles, including some that specialize in off-roading. Off-road vehicles are distinguished by their higher ground clearance, softer suspension, lightweight, larger wheels, and somewhat stronger engines than regular vehicles. The game offers players many off-road vehicles. However, there has been some confusion amongst players on which ones to settle for.
