The EarthCruisers We Cannot Have in the US

If you haven’t notice, Australia has an almost unfair amount of cool stuff. I’m not just talking about kangaroos, didgeridoos, or places like Coober Pedy. I’m talking about cool vehicles like the latest rigs from EarthCruiser. Last month, they announced three new models, all built on Iveco platforms. They are—incredible. Officially, the three models are the Iveco Dual Cab, the 440T Single Cab, and the 360T Single Cab. All powered by Iveco’s 170 hp 3.0 liter 4-cylinder turbo diesel, they offer four wheel drive performance with maximum fuel efficiency. If the Iveco chassis doesn’t do it four you, earlier this summer they released their new FUSO Dual Cab. It would be nice to get those options here in the US, wouldn’t it?
