Exploring the far reaches of the world doesn't have to mean roughing it. Bliss Mobil Expedition Vehicles offer luxurious appointments built atop some of the world's most capable trucks. They range from 11 to 20 feet in length, and can be built on a wide range of 4x4, 6x6, and 8x8 base vehicles. Inside, they offer beds, bathrooms, lounging and cooking areas, and even wall-mounted iMacs, and since the entire cabin is built as an all-in-one unit, it can easily be pulled off the truck and placed on a truck, train, ship, plane, or just on the ground. Roof-mounted solar panels provide power to the lithium-ion batteries, and external racks offer space for bikes, spare tires, or extra supplies.
Built for off-road performance, the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 offers big capability in a mid-sized package. The heavily modified truck sits on a track that's been widened by three and a half inches, with a lifted suspension and new cast-iron control arms for greater durability. It's also the first off-roader to get Chevy's advanced Multimatic Dynamic Suspensions Spool Valve damper technology for improved handling. Rockers have been added to make clearing rocks and obstacles easier, the front and rear bumpers massaged for greater clearance, and the 17-inch rims wrapped in mud-gobbling 31-inch Goodyear Duratrac tires. The standard version is powered by a 3.6L V6 pumping out 308 hp, and a diesel powerplant is available for those looking for more range.
