Unfortunately, the answer is an annoying 'it depends'. There are times (after the road has been graded recently) that any vehicle could negotiate these roads.

At other times (after rains when there can be deep washouts) you have to have a high clearance 4x4.

I've certainly seen many passenger cars on the road to racetrack - as long as they go slow they tend to be okay. I know I must irritate them because I don't like to go especially slow on those roads, so always pass them (but that's why I have the Land Rover!)

You can always check with NPS and see what they think, or ask on this and other boards when you know you are going out to DV for a recent trip report.
