Sport Utility Vehicle – Troller T4
FORD TROLLER T4 – Sport Utility Vehicle
Sport utility vehicle people have gotten used to seeing things we can’t have — whether it’s some incredible concept vehicle, or a model that will never be available in our country — and the Ford Troller T4 is just another example of something we can see but never touch. Available only in Brazil, this is the no-frills SUV you’ve always wanted Ford to build for American consumers. While details on the power train are still scant, we do know that it has a 3.2-liter diesel engine and a six-speed manual transmission. It’ll likely also feature a sky roof, high ground clearance for off-road use, adjustable sway bars, and more.
Dubbed the Off-Road Rescue Concept, this Troller T4 is equipped with a new off-road bumpers front and back, a winch, 17-inch wheels, LED spot lights, a snorkel for the engine, and high profile off-road tires. Sporting a custom paint job, the Troller T4 sport utility vehicle Concept also features an upgraded interior, a serious step up from the utilitarian accommodations of the stock T4. Ford says that the Off-Road Rescue Concept has also received a beefed-up suspension with high-performance shock absorbents, in addition to rescue gear in special containers stored in the back.
A spokesperson for Troller mentioned that the company has already developed special versions for fire services, and that the sport utility vehicle will used to test customer reaction to a recovery vehicle based on the small 4×4. Troller is also using the Sao Paulo Motor Show to debut a special line of clothing and accessories to go along with th T4.
The sport utility vehicle Troller T4 is powered by a 3.2-liter five-cylinder diesel engine mated to a six-speed manual transmission, and produces 197-hp and an impressive 347 lb-ft of torque. Sales of the Troller T4 so far are limited to South America, and unfortunately there is no way to import a one new into the U.S. privately. Still, we have a feeling that something like this in North America could take on the monopoly of the Jeep Wrangler in this segment if given the chance.
