When you need to get to a backcountry fishing or hunting spot and a 4×4 truck or SUV just won’t cut it, an ATV or side-by-side is the obvious alternative. These vehicles have certainly come a long way since the original three-wheelers of the late ’60s, as this year’s top new offerings reveal. Not only can they perform under tough conditions, they’re also spacious enough to carry gear and passengers to where you need to go.
