If You Were Looking For The Automotive Equivalent Of A Rhino, Well, You’ve Found It
Meet the Rhino GX, a custom military-inspired luxury SUV for those looking to intimidate other vehicles on the road, tanks included.
Based on the platform of a Ford F-450 Super Duty, the Rhino GX wants to offer the tough looks of a proper military vehicle but without the handling characteristics of one.
Power comes from Ford’s 6.7-litre diesel which produces 330hp and 760lb ft of torque. These figures can be deemed as sufficient to get this beast moving. A set of huge 38-inch mud tires and a new rear suspension with hydraulic struts allow it to tackle almost every surface in its way.
Add to that a towing capability of 12,000 lbs and its 140-inch wheelbase which makes it more driveable than most of the other similarly-minded machines out there. The cabin offers seating for up to seven people and customers can choose whether they want the soft nappa leather upholstery or a more rugged one, depending on their intended use of the vehicle.
