4×4 trucks are cool, sure, but they don’t handle as well as a 6×6 in the frozen tundra. And if you’d prefer a hulking beast of a truck compared to a miserable ride on a dog sled, check out the Hilux AT44 6×6 Arctic Truck.
These trucks are specifically built to withstand the arctic, such as the Antarctica plateau and the South Pole. Stemming from Toyota, Arctic Trucks, located in Iceland, has built numerous 6×6 vehicles before, and their latest is a serious 6 wheel drive. It’s outfitted with a 3.0L diesel engine that pushes 171 horsepower, and massive 44×18.5×15 tires. It has a monster 550L fuel tank and a 2000kg carrying capacity. The truck is made for polar expeditions, and has many advantages over tracked vehicles, including increased traverse speed and reduced fuel consumption. And, the bed of the truck has a modular design that allows for the addition of shelter.
