The 3 Best Three-Wheel Vehicles on the Market
Who says cars always have four wheels? Not us! In fact, the segment of vehicles with three wheels, known as “autocycles,” is quickly growing. With quite a few options, you may be wondering which one is the best. Maybe you’re considering joining the growing crowd of people buying one of these fun-to-drive vehicles but aren’t sure which one. For many, this kind of purchase is because they love having a new toy every few years. Perhaps you’re headed on vacation and want to rent a vehicle totally unlike what you drive in your normal life. Here is a brief breakdown of some of the industry’s top three-wheelers, designed for the people who love to get out on the open road:
#1 Polaris Slingshot. The Polaris Slingshot is a totally unique form of transportation. It features two wheels in front and one wheel in the rear and an open cockpit with side-by-side bucket seating for two. Is it as fun to drive as it looks? Yes! According to Polaris Slingshot drivers, it is incredibly fun to drive. There are no doors or side windows, just a 7.5-inch tall windscreen. This makes the Slingshot as close to being totally out on the open road as possible. It’s also quick and powerful. A Polaris Slingshot is a vehicle and a culture like no other, and driving one ensures you steal the spotlight wherever you go. This vehicle’s look and speed isn’t for everyone, though. That’s exactly the point!
#2 Harley-Davidson Tri-Glide. This vehicle is more a motorcycle with an extra wheel than an autocycle. It is available with a 114- or 117-cubic-inch V-twin and up to 125 pound-feet of torque. This vehicle is aimed at those seeking the Harley-Davidson experience without having to keep 800 pounds upright and balanced. Perhaps you want to try out what it’s like to ride a motorcycle, without risking your safety. This is the way to do it! After all, what is a trip to Daytona Beach without stopping into a few biker bars?
#3 Campagna T-Rex. The T-Rex line features Italian carbon-fiber bodywork, a Japanese engine, and a sky-high price to match. The 2021 model is powered by a Kawasaki-sourced DOHC 1.4-liter inline-four making 208 horsepower and 117 pound-feet of torque. While this may sound exciting, you should know that it starts at $65,999 so this is more a toy for the wealthy elite than a fun way to drive around Daytona Beach.
