At first released back in February in Brazil, the purposes of enthusiasm of the gigantic VW 9.150 ECE (Especial Chassis Eletronico) protectively secured vehicle has avoided us so far. Powered by a MWM International 4.12 TCE Euro III which conveys 132kW (180hp) and 600Nm torque at 1600 rpm, the 9.159 ECE rides with an invigorated back suspension, pneumatic brakes and a huge amount of steel defensive layer plating. With a wheelbase of 2,850 mm, the check weight of 8,500 kg (18,740 lbs.) is passed on with 3,200 kg (7055 lbs.) over the front axel and 5,300 kg (11,685 lbs.) over the back. Unquestionably fit for withstanding a huge amount of abuse.
Taking after a creature, wheeled metallic bulldog that could change into a mammoth talking robot at any moment, the 9.150 ECE is powered by a 4750cc inline four-barrel turbodiesel mated to a five-speed transmission. Power is a humble 150 steeds, yet peak torque is a weighty 405 lb.- ft., passed on some place around 1,600 and 2,000 rpm. It unmistakably needs that low-end grunt to pull a full payload of duckets. We call for VW to import a standard subject structure to North America as soon as possible. In light of current circumstances, the non military staff trim Chevy Kodiak, International CXT, GMC TopKick and Ford F-650 could use a little competition.
There’s something to a great degree cool about VW?s new ECE 9.150 Armored Truck that was released for the Brazilian market. Perhaps it?s the gunmetal dim shading or the Samurai protective layer looks, we?re not certain yet. Regardless, we can imagine that in case it weren?t at the taking off gas costs, this armadillo of a VW could have truly made a calling here in the States as an untouchable distinctive choice for the changed Hummer H1/H2 models.
