Aravind Jayachandran, I'm a huge petrolhead, an automobile engineer, a massive fan of Ferrari, and loves collecting die-cast models for inspiration.
Based on the Troller, the concept gets more off-road kit.
Ford of Brazil has announced a new concept that is all set to be unveiled at the 2014 Sao Paulo Motor Show to be held from October 28.
Called the Troller T4 Concept, the rugged off-road concept is based on the Ford Troller, but features additional accessories that make it a true off-road vehicle, like a snorkel, rugged plastic bumpers, an electric winch, a steel storage box, and large off-road tires that wrap an alloy rim finished in dark brown.
The whole exterior and interior is finished in a two tone dark brown-light brown combination. Inside, unlike most concepts that we’ve seen so far, the Troller T4 Concept features the production-ready interior of the Troller and is upholstered in leather. Standard equipment include an automatic climate control system and navigation support.
Under the hood, the Troller T4 Concept borrows the 3.2-liter five cylinder engine from Ford’s other models. It produces 197 hp, and is mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox. Ford hasn’t provided any performance figures yet.
Founded in 1995, the Troller is a Brazilian off-road vehicle manufacturer that used to rival other foreign offerings like the Toyota Bandeirante. It was acquired by Ford in 2005 at an undisclosed price.
