A new extreme pick-up truck has been revealed, designed to be ‘the maximum evolution of the pick-up as we know it’ while providing SUV luxury.
Called Militem Ferox-T, it’s based on the Jeep Gladiator Rubicon, which gives it excellent off-road capability.
The exterior has been given a makeover through carbon-fibre wide-body wheel arches, a honeycomb black grille and 20-inch alloy wheels with chunky all-terrain tyres.
It also comes with a roll bar that allows for fitment of LED headlights, while the load bed has a nautical material – this is said to be partly because the Ferox-T is ideal for pulling a small boat thanks to its 3.5-tonne towing capability.
Inside, the cabin has been handcrafted with Italian leather upholstery with optional Alcantara inserts. Buyers can customise their cars with a variety of leather, fabric and technical fibres, too.
Under the bonnet is the same 3.6-litre V6 engine as found on the regular Gladiator Rubicon. It has been fine-tuned by Militem and produces 285bhp, fed to all four wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission. Militem-made exhaust tips are also fitted, with a button on the centre console that can alter the note.
An Adventure pack is also available that adds scratch resistant paint to the bumpers and wheel arches, a snorkel, luggage rack and mud terrain tyres.
