Robb Re­port’s in­au­gu­ral Dream Ma­chines event in­tro­duced at­ten­dees to the su­per SUVs that rule the roads, and the off roads.

It’s dif­fi­cult to imag­ine a jour­ney with greater jux­ta­po­si­tion than one be­tween Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon, yet the lo­ca­tions of­fer sim­i­lar sen­sory over­load as they tap into our crav­ing for ad­ven­ture and free­dom.

Re­cently, the first Robb Re­port Dream Ma­chines event was at­tended by 32 of our RR1 pri­vate club mem­bers in search of both. With the Aria Re­sort & Casino as base camp, and where evenings were spent din­ing with chefs Michael Mina and Jean-Ge­orges Von­gerichten, we drove roughly 270 miles to the South Rim of Grand Canyon Na­tional Park and back while field-test­ing eight of the top SUVs on the mar­ket. Along the way, they re­vealed their own dual na­ture of com­fort and all-ter­rain ca­pa­bil­ity.
