This is the kind of no nonsense SUV I would buy. It is a REAL truck, not a car that looks like a truck. With a 5.0 option it would sell like hotcakes. My fear is that the production model wouldn't be anything like the concept.
That concept has been around for a long time. 1st I've seen that motor or a 2015 tag put on it. I like it. Personally I like the other one that was released as an April fools joke. Was a bigger version available with a diesel
Probably will never be built. The high ground clearance/short wheelbase is just to much of a liability. They are inherently unstable at higher speeds and the car companies are that fond of being sued for it. Look all the problems they had with the early explorers. I drove a 98 when we were looking for one and die the side to side swerve and it felt unstable. Ended up getting a 98 Jimmy instead just because it felt more stable.
