Subaru's XV has evolved, with the popular, AWD compact SUV reimagined and re-christened as the Crosstrek.
In this case, a flagship TRX model, sporting a 6.2 litre V-8 Hemi, finished in an eye-catching Hydro Blue.
It marks the 10th anniversary of the relationship between RAM and the Ateco Group, the world’s only authorised manufacturer of right-hand drive RAMs that began in 2013. Each pick-up arrives from the United States into RAM’s Melbourne manufacturing facility, where they are converted to right-hand drive for the Australian and New Zealand markets.
“RAM is one of our best known and strongest brands in the USA, so we are really proud to see it here in Australia,” said Carl Smiley, chief operating officer, India & Asia Pacific at Stellantis.
“The Ateco Group are great partners to have in this project – the quality of right-hand drive trucks is testament to the teamwork between those on the ground here in Australia and those back in the US.”
The Australian operation has been recently ramped-up to meet a record demand. This saw here in New Zealand 27 units sold in January, to bring the total to 1,170 right-hand units of North American muscle currently on NZ roads.
