Overland Classifieds :: 2021 EarthCruiser FX

Suppose you’re in the market for a go-anywhere luxury overland vehicle. In that case, there is no shortage of options with drool-worthy builds from EarthRoamer, Global Expedition Vehicles, SLRV Expedition Vehicles, and, indeed EarthCruiser. However, I’d argue that some of these builds lean slightly towards the realities of luxury and the illusion of capability. In other words, there’s no question that these huge rigs provide stunning interiors with generous amenities and exquisite comfort. Still, I often question their practicality when it comes to round-the-world travel. I would argue that EarthCruiser finds a sweet spot between comfort, capability, and size. They start with the proven Mitsubishi Fuso 4×4 chassis, which features a dependable 3.0-liter diesel motor, impressive all-terrain capability, and access to parts globally. They then uprate this platform with a plethora of aftermarket parts and accessories that optimize the Fuso for remote exploration and top it with a custom four-season lightweight habitation box equipped with everything you need to live off-grid. Sure, it’s still a big vehicle that will limit access in some scenarios, but it’s far more practical than alternatives such as this monster 2020 Global Expedition Vehicles Patagonia. The EarthCruiser is still cost-prohibitive to most, with only a small selection of these rigs posted to our forum, including this 2016 FX, a 2018 EXP, and a 2015 FX. Today’s 2021 EarthCruiser showcases a huge specification and is currently bidding at just $151,000. This could be a great deal for someone considering the last comparable example we featured sold for $325,000.
