Ido Off-Road Center, developer of the Zibar is providing here a peek into the new model of Zibar Truck, a heavier, more powerful ‘pick up truck’ version of Zibar Mk II, designed for extreme duty off-road work. Zibar Truck offers almost the same performance and cross-country mobility, carrying loads of 2.8 tons on a large rear mounted flatbed cargo. The truck is powered by a GM Duramax 6.6L diesel engine developing 520 HP, and torque of 850 lb-ft – twice the torque level of the petrol engine used with Zibar Mk II. Both vehicles have a top speed of 180 km/h, approach angle of 90 degrees, and departure angle of 80 degrees, side slope handling of 60%, and longitudinal slope handling of 100%, 0.8 m’ ditch crossing and 0.75 m’ step climbing. The Zibar Truck can cross water obstacles 1 meter deep. The first shipment of Zibar Mk II has already been delivered to an international customer and the company is currently negotiating follow-on orders.
