EarthCruiser’s First V8 EXP Demo

Share this Post:

We love each EarthCruiser that comes off the lot equally, though this specific vehicle holds a special place in our hearts – our 2020 EXP V8 Demo vehicle. 

Our demo models all hold a crucial place in EarthCruiser history and we consider our 2020 EXP V8 Demo our most thoughtful and unique EarthCruiser to date. This was the first V8 EarthCruiser ever produced, and at the time of creation was the only production V8 4WD cab over vehicle in America. It’s outfitted with our proprietary 4×4 drive-train, making it one of the most capable overland expedition vehicles available.

This specific vehicle was also awarded the honor of Top 10 Best Overland Vehicles at its 2019 public debut at SEMA. It was spec’d 100% to Lance & Michelle’s needs to ensure it would perform in all conditions, making it the ideal set-up for true overland travel and performance. 

It’s also a crew favorite, and a point of pride, having been babied on the lot since we finished it and always getting the newest updates and features first. It’s also been an incredible avenue for us to connect with potential customers and EarthCruiser fans, be it visits to HQ or curious walk-ups when on the road.  

This EXP has been tested to ensure safety and durability and has proven to be an incredibly capable road partner. And, don’t just take our word for it, see for yourself in this incredible thorough overview conducted by none other than Scott Brady for Overland Journal/Expedition Portal (story forthcoming in the Winter issue) and an accompanying podcast interview here.

Scott had the opportunity few media have to date – field testing the EXP in the rugged Pacific Northwest over the course of two weeks. The long form video includes a “detailed walk-around and discussion of vehicle systems and performance” and includes: Off road and overland performance; Exterior walk-around; Interior systems review; and Conclusions. 

If you’ve always wanted to get up close and personal with an EarthCruiser, now’s your chance. As much as we love our V8 Demo, we want to set it free from our HQ to find its first owner/s to hit the trails and share adventures as we bring in our 2021 demos. If you or someone you know is looking to get into a pre-owned EarthCruiser, send us a note at: and put EXP V8 in the subject line. You can view the full sales flyer here.
