June 2020 Adventure Cinema

Our June 2020 Adventure Cinema has something for everyone, from the new 2021 Hilux to a million-dollar camper and everything in between.

You won’t be able to take your eyes off this LandCruiser JMACX installation.

This fascinating video showing a LandCruiser JMACX installation performed by the team at Jacksons 4×4 Accessories in Murray Bridge, SA leads our June 2020 Adventure Cinema, showing the whole procedure, including fitment of a 300mm chassis extension and a hefty 4495kg GVM upgrade. For more details check out the Jacksons 4×4 Accessories website. Oh, and make sure you check out the video below…

 

See Ken Block drift a Ford F-450 Dually in this epic June 2020 Adventure Cinema clip!

Ken Block is without a doubt one of the masters of sideways action but drifting a Ford F-450 Dually takes things to a whole new level. The truck in question is Hoonigan Racing Division’s workhorse, and it’s been used in plenty of Ken Block’s previous videos, but only in a supporting role. Not this time though – the mighty Dually takes centre stage and is worthy of inclusion in our June 2020 Adventure Cinema. You can check out Block’s previous drifting efforts on his YouTube channel.

We can’t get out hands on a press vehicle yet but anyone can head to a dealer and sample the new Jeep Gladiator Rubicon in Australia… so we did.

It’s not often that dealers get their hands on demo vehicles before journos have a crack behind the wheel but hey, Covid-19 seems to have turned the world on its head, right? We have a Jeep Gladiator Rubicon press vehicle booked for late July, at which point we’ll give it a thorough on- and off-road test and bring you our verdict, but in the meantime we headed to our local Jeep dealer and sampled a demonstrator model. And after our brief drive, we’re hooked! For more details on the range hit this link for a full Jeep Gladiator spec-sheet. For drive impressions check out the video below:

This cool Traxxas Mini Moab Adventure video is definitely worthy of inclusion in our June 2020 Adventure Cinema.

This video we spotted the other day titled Traxxas Mini Moab Adventure reminded us why we’re big fans of little crawlers at Unsealed 4X4. What’s the attraction, you might ask? Well, there are a couple of reasons we like scaled-down rock crawling. Firstly, rock crawling in 1/10th scale is a lot more affordable than the real thing and, secondly, after a day’s driving out in the bush, with the camp set up and a coldie in your hand, you can still go scaled-down wheeling without fear of hurting someone or being locked up by Mr Plod.

 

Toyota Europe has released teaser footage of the 2021 Toyota HiLux driven by ex-Formula One – and now Toyota Gazoo Racing driver and Dakar competitor – Fernando Alonso.

Although the short teaser video of the disguised 2021 Toyota HiLux driven by Alonso didn’t reveal much about the soon-to-be-revealed model, the camouflaged vehicle in the clip did confirm that the leaked images we showed on Unsealed 4X4 in April were on the money, with a more prominent grille, a refreshed rear-end with a reshaped tailgate, a new rear bumper and new LED taillights and turn signals. Check out the teaser video below…

 

You’ll need deep pockets to get into this million dollar camper but the EarthRoamer LTi is the height of luxury, and it’s described as the most advanced expedition vehicle ever.

It has a base price of US$590,000 (A$860,000), but up to US$700K (A$1.02M) with options. Built on a Ford F-550 Lariat 4×4 platform, the EarthRoamer LTi is said to be the first camper of its kind to be manufactured from a lightweight one-piece vacuum-infused carbon-fibre body. Check it out here…

 

The Dakar Rally Classic Class will be introduced in 2021 and, among other changes, it will see the return to racing of memorable vehicles like the Lada Niva, Land Rover Defender and Porsche 959.

For a taste of what the Dakar Rally Classic Class will bring to the 2021 event, check out this epic video below that includes footage from various previous years.

 

Check out this crazy French Citroen 2CV Sahara.

When the French wanted to make a 4×4 version of their popular utlilitarian 2CV, they just fitted it with another engine. That’s right! The Citroen 2CV Sahara has two engines! Anyway, enough of us telling you all about it… have a gander at the video below.
