2020 EarthCruiser EXP Turns A Familiar Delivery Truck Into A Full-Featured Overland Vehicle
The 2020 EarthCruiser EXP truck , pretty much, gives the erstwhile commercial truck a full-on makeover, outfitting it with an all-new four-wheel drive system, full floating axles controlled by a two-speed transfer case with customizable drive options, and a Vortec 6.0-liter V8 engine. Routing 297 horsepower and 361 pound-feet of torque to the wheels through a six-speed automatic, the engine gives the overland travel vehicle the necessary muscle to push the seven ton behemoth across the nastiest off-road terrains, while a 60-gallon gas tank ensures you’ll have enough fuel to explore every corner of your destination. With over 11 inches of ground clearance, it should drive over many obstacles with relative ease, while 14-inch vented disc brakes front and rear provide the necessary stopping power.
While the cab looks standard (save for the roll bars all around), it gets improved ergonomics inside, courtesy of Scheelmann Vairo captain’s chairs that, the outfit claims, provides unmatched comfort for long-distance travel. They pair that with four cup holders, a large box with charging ports, and even a security safe at the center console to help you keep things tidy. There’s a built-in 360Ah battery (upgradeable to 720Ah) to power your lighting and appliances, which include a hot air unit, a water heater, a condensation reduction system, BOSE speakers, optional AC, awesome stuff to buy and a ceiling-mounted microwave. Three 160-watt solar panels are included, as well, so you can replenish the battery as you go.
