You know, Like TikTok creators according to the trends, Today almost every car producer also produced suv (or/and) truck to the market, due to their increasing demand. Except someone who doesn’t chase after a super car, an SUV or a Truck will be more profitable than a car. You may not know about many 4WDs apart from the SUVs or Trucks that competes in the first row and also rooted in the market with its brand. Anyway, There are vehicles from less popular brands, that you may not have heard of or may not have seen, as well as like LM002 in heard and popular companies have vehicles that you have never heard of before. So, I thought to line up a list of Voiture Blog discussion about most unknown SUVs and TRUCKs….

As the prime mover, the engine produces 180hp to brings the power this conception 001 4WD needs. Do you know that why this LM001 vehicle limited from only 1 prototype ? There were many issues due to placing its prime mover in rear. So, the producer decided to discontinued this big boss to preserve the quality of their brand “Lamborghini”.

Looks like mod-mobile, this is 4WD Boot from SCG. This adorable 2door+2seats Boot came with removable hard-top.

With a more ground-clearance and an attractive body work, it adds a variety to your ride that is different from other 4WDs.

Customers had a chance to choose their preferred transmission: 6 speed manual or 6 speed automatic in same prime mover and with different price range.
#4 Borgward BX5 – 6,199 units were sold in 2020
I thought to add BX5 after the BX3 because is model is more popular than above one. I hope you may have get an idea about it by looking how many units they were sold. This crossover in produced by the same company that build BX3 and when it comes to BX5, there is no any changes of based location and others. When we jump to BX5 from the BX3, the only different here is the engine, which is available in 3 variants as 1.4L, 1.8L and 2.0L. The 6 speed manual and its automatic transmission are support prime mover to produce 224 hp(2.0L engine).
#5 Spyker D12 Peking-to-paris – There is no mention of units
This adorable crossover was originally offered with luxury body work. Since not even getting a clue about this D12 after the introduction at Geneva show, no wonder you didn’t know about this 5 door+4 seat luxe suv. When we take a look by opening its front conventional doors and rear coach doors, it is really looks luxury. whole seat covers, center console and others which is covered by light brown leather, makes D12 unique from others on our list. It was not limited to luxury design only, the surprising thing is D12 is powered by VW W12 engine with 6 speed manual transmission. As the prime mover the engine produced more than 506 hp to brings the power D12 needs. On the first day of introduction, I saw in many sources that, it received more than 100 orders.

One of the most luxurious as well as strongest full size bigg boss on the market with 5-7 passenger capacity. This hand build suv is very similar to military one by exterior design, shape and appearance. But when you take a seat by opening its heavy doors, the luxe interior, well done leather seats and other luxe features brings you a more comfortable ride with Rhino GX.

#7 Skoda Trekka – 3,000 were built
Very similar to defender in exterior design but this is Trekka from new zealand. The powertrain is little bit poor with its 1.2L I4 engine. 4 speed manual transmission supported to produce 47 hp to make Trekka move. In our opinion, I have no idea about the four small wheels that don’t fit its huge body at all. This 2 door off-roader was produced in between 1966-1973.
#8 Karlmann King – 12 were build
Even most of you didn’t know about this king, it is the most expensive and most luxurious full size suv in the world which costs $2 million. When it comes to exterior design, the whole exterior was designed as bended triangles. This unique design make this bigg boss different from others. You can’t get any idea about the interior by looking at the Exterior, but once you open its conventional doors and take a seat, I’m sure your mind won’t let you get up from your comfortable seat again.
So naming this as King is fair, isn’t it ? This 5 door King is powered by 6.8L V10 engine with 5 speed automatic transmission. As the prime mover, the engine produces 372 hp to brings the power this big boss king needs. Now, you will realize that it is by no means limited to luxury.
