Forza Horizon 5 Best off-road cars: Top 5 off-road vehicles in FH5

Forza Horizon 5 offers a vast variety of different races and vehicles, all packed into one enormous experience with dozens of hours of content for players to explore during their adventures through the beautifully reimagined Mexico.

And while for most of the races you will naturally seek to use only the absolute best cars, when it comes to off-road races, things are getting a bit trickier, as even the most reliable on-road machines will be rendered useless in this situation, as they are simply not designed to deal with bumpy and muddy country roads or all other types of rough terrains when you are racing off the beaten track.

For this type of race, you will need to look into the collection of Forza Horizon 5 off-road cars and find out what the best cars are for off-road races.

Forza Horizon 5: Top 5 off-road cars

If you are not sure which cars to pick for your off-roading adventures, check out our list below to see which one suits your needs and playstyle the best.

2016 Jeep Trailcat

  • Performance Class & Rating: A / 744
  • Speed: 6.2
  • Handling: 3.9
  • Acceleration: 5.5
  • Launch: 4.1
  • Braking: 4.0
  • Offroad: 10

When it comes to demanding terrains, you can never make a mistake with the Jeep Trailcat. It's rather affordable (it will cost you only 75,000 Credits) and while it might not be amongst the best in its vanilla version, it can be an absolute monster of a machine with the proper tuning.

2020 Ford #2069 Bronco R "Welcome Pack"

  • Performance Class & Rating: A / 800
  • Speed: 6.1
  • Handling: 3.9
  • Acceleration: 8.8
  • Launch: 9.9
  • Braking: 5.4
  • Offroad: 9.9

If you purchase the Welcome Pack car suite you will have the Bronco R available right from the get-go, and to be honest, this is probably all you need if you just want to start driving through the countryside without any tunning, as this is the best available car for offroading off-the-shelf.

2017 Ford #25 "Brocky" Ultra4 Bronco RTR

You will need to invest in the Brocky Ultra4, but it will pay off later in the game. (Picture: Microsoft)
  • Performance Class & Rating: A / 748
  • Speed: 4.7
  • Handling: 4.1
  • Acceleration: 6.1
  • Launch: 5.2
  • Braking: 5.2
  • Offroad: 10

As you can see, the vehicle boasts a perfect 10 stat for off-road driving, and just like our other Ford on the list, it's simply made for driving off-road.

Though most of the other stats are significantly weaker compared to the Bronco R, it is nothing that can't be tunned up later, and in the long run, it can offer a lot of value for the money you invest in it.

2014 Local Motors Rally Fighter

If you are having trouble earning credits early, you should consider buying the Rally Fighter. (Picture: Microsoft)
  • Performance Class & Rating: A / 716
  • Speed: 6.0
  • Handling: 3.8
  • Acceleration: 4.5
  • Launch: 3.6
  • Braking: 4.0
  • Offroad: 10

The Rally Fighter is an affordable option that will cost fewer credits compared to other vehicles on our list. Despite its remarkable 10 off-road stat, it still leaves much to be desired in other departments.

Why are we putting it on our list then? Because it is a great budget option for the early game which will do the work just fine in early challenges, but it will require some aggressive tunning as you progress through the game.

AMG Transport Dynamics M12S Warthog CST 2554

  • Speed:4.2
  • Handling: 4.1
  • Acceleration: 8.6
  • Launch: 10
  • Braking: 6.7
  • Offroad: 10

Finally, if you are looking for the absolute behemoth of a vehicle for the late game off-roading, then look no further as the AMG Transport Dynamics M12S Warthog CST 2554 is what you want.

This monster military SUV comes straight from the Halo franchise, and it will leave your opponents in a cloud of dust behind you as they gaze in awe at this strikingly powerful machine. Make sure to have your money ready though, as you will need to part ways with 850,000 Credits in order to add this beast into your collection.

And there you have it, the best cars in Forza Horizon 5 for off-roading. As you can see, we've opted for a balanced list for every situation and stage of the game, so this list is not purely created with the most expensive vehicles in mind, rather it offers something for a variety of prices during any phase of the game.
