Among Toyotas, the order would be LC/FJ/Prado - Prado 4 ltr Engines are quiet popular with non-core off roaders.

If you are talking about Desert Safaris by Travel Agents Tour groups etc its almost exclusive territory of Land Cruisers (most of the late models Land Cruisers you finf here in the used car market invariably can be traced back to this lot)

Some companies use GMC Yukons these days also few are using Chevrolets Blazers as well.

I have not seen anyone (Tour operators) using Hummer ever for Desert Safaris. The reason mainly because they offer compareitively smaller window spaces and allround visibility for the tourists to see the desert. Also LCs have comparitively better comfort and probably lower maintenance costs.
