6x6 Cars: Off-Road Adventures Like Never Before

4-wheel drive SUVs have become a common sight on Ghana’s roads. But, there is one type of vehicle that can dwarf even the biggest 4x4s. We are talking about 6×6 trucks, and after reading this article, you’ll get to know all about them. 

What is a 6x6?

Regular road cars come equipped with two axles, one in the front and one at the rear. A 6×6 takes this concept and turns it up to 11 by adding an extra axle at the vehicle’s rear. These monstrous vehicles are also equipped with all-wheel-drive, which means that the grunt from the engine is delivered to all six wheels, making them a force to be reckoned with.

Thanks to the six wheels, these vehicles have more grip when compared with regular 4×4 trucks. This feature will surely come in handy if the car gets stuck in mud or sand. 

An increased ride height, greater visibility, and a bigger cargo area are some of the other benefits of a 6×6 SUV.

6×6 trucks stand above the others in terms of popularity and quality. Here are some of the best trucks every truck enthusiast should know about. 

Khan Flying Huntsman

Khan is a British car modification firm well known for their outrageous mods on good old Land Rover Defenders. In the case of the Huntsman, the company has fitted an LS3 V8 from a Corvette at the front and an extra axel at the rear. A new grill, vents on the sides, and 18-inch wheels are also present to give this Defender an appearance like no other.

Additionally, the VelociRaptor 6×6 has 600 Horsepower under the hood, making it one of the fastest trucks of its kind.
