Ladies and gentlemen, here are the 10 competitors and 2 substitutes for Top Truck Challenge 2013! They were selected from the 42 Top Truck nominees they published in the April 2013 issue of Four Wheeler, and they competed in the 21st edition of the Top Truck Challenge.
In next month’s edition of Four Wheeler, you’ll see amazing photos and read all the fascinating details of how each competitor did in all seven TTC off-road events, but this month we take an in-depth look at each platform. We will investigate how these vehicles work, how transmission lines are configured, how interiors are configured and much more. We will also give you an idea of ??how each driver thinks. What event are you waiting for the most? What event do they fear? They will answer these questions and more (some you may not even want to know).
This year, TTC underwent a major overhaul of the rule that excluded buggies and required each vehicle to resemble a mass-produced truck or SUV. It responded positively to this change with the strongest voting numbers in years, and chose a group of platforms that included five GM vehicles, four Ford, one Toyota, one Volkswagen, and one International Harvester. Apparently you wanted a break from Jeep vehicles, because you didn’t even vote for one of the 15 Jeep candidates. This is the first time in TTC’s 21-year history that the Jeep brand has been absent from Top Truck. When you turn the page and start examining this year’s competitors and alternates, you’ll see them in their pre-competition condition. These photographs were taken just a few minutes before entering the TTC battle, and did not look like this for long as they bravely battled against TTC’s strenuous challenges. We are talking about evil as the tow test tug, the weird Frame Twister, the malevolent Mud Pit, the stubborn obstacle course, the hideous Hill Climb, the criminal Coal Chute and the stormy Tank Trap. So keep reading and get the gist of these off-road superheroes.
