Ford Brings Rally Trucks and Slammed ‘Stangs to SEMA
Stranded hikers and backcountry adventures can breathe a sigh of relief knowing that ARB has created the perfect off-road rescue vehicle. Using a Ford Bronco Wildtrak chassis with the 2.7-liter V6, ARB worked with Ford to make an ode to the medical service vehicles of the early 1900s, complete with Tube doors, an under-hood air compressor, and a winch. Upgraded suspension by ARB and a series of chassis protection pieces (rock sliders, traction boards, and a skid plate) mean this Bronco should be unstoppable, regardless of the terrain ahead.
Bringing the proper equipment is as important as getting to a medical emergency on time. To this effect, ARB has built and installed a first-of-its-kind roof rack with room for boxes, tires, and various other fittings. Additionally, a 47-quart fridge and freezer has been installed for, well, the worst-case scenarios, or beverage consumption. And the medical providers are sure to stay strapped in, thanks to a set of Recaro bucket seats up front. All-in-all, I wouldn’t want any other vehicle to come to save me off the side of a mountain.
