These are very exciting vehicles :)

It's the kind of thing that, if going by Facebook comments on mainstream news articles, apparently 99% of Australia needs :D

It might interest the RV towing public. A 5tonne towing capacity covers just about anything being dragged around these days and the ute version would be excellent for those towing 5th wheelers. With such brilliant traction ability it would appeal to those that tend to get stuck when camped up beside a river and it rains over night.
A really big solar array on the roof and you could have free fuel if you weren't in a hurry .....that covers most retired grey nomads living full time on the road these days.
