The CEOs of all the major truck makers have put their differences aside and come together to build the perfect hunting and fishing vehicle. Outdoors enthusiasts have been asking for something like this for years, and it’s finally becoming a reality.
It comes in a gas model with the 6.4 liter Hemi from the Ram Power Wagon, or the Ford PowerStroke diesel for those who want a bit more torque. They’ve combined those engine choices with the six-speed Aisin transmission from the Nissan Titan XD. The GM electronics, complete with the Apple Connect system, lets you run the stereo system with your cell phone, rather than have to take a college-level course to figure out how to change the radio station.
The Toyota Tundra CrewMax cab gives you plenty of room for yourself and four of your closest hunting buddies, and they’ve even brought back the slide-and-recline back seats to allow you some storage space for your rifles, shotguns or fishing rods behind that back seat. Even better, they built a custom-fitted safe behind the back seat, so you can leave the tools of your trade in the truck and not have to worry about them growing legs and walking off.
The console between the seats gives you even more storage. There’s even a lockable, spring-loaded compartment for your sidearm, should you choose to drive around armed.
The bed is the shorter six-foot variety, so you don’t have to give up maneuverability in the backwoods. However, to save some of that valuable bed space, they’ve built in the RamBox tool boxes. If you have an ATV, you can get the optional Ford bed ramps, which are stored in a special slot under the bed on this truck.
With either the gas or diesel option, you’ll get 40 miles to the gallon, thanks to some newly discovered technologies. And you can get all of this for less than $20,000. In fact, if you’re a member of any hunting conservation groups, like Ducks Unlimited, Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, Pheasants Forever, or similar organizations, they’ll knock $2,000 off the price for each group you have a membership card for.
This FoYoChevRamIssan Huntmobile is only available today, though. And I can’t tell you where to get it, because even though the truck companies agreed to build it, they haven’t decided which of them can sell it. My best advice is to tell you to visit all the dealerships, and do it before April 2.
