built for a purpose

CORE is a separate division of EarthCruiser. CORE applications include wilderness firefighting, Homeland Security, medical response, equipment delivery, mobile laboratories, DIY overland vehicle builders and more.

Capability Redefined

Earthcruiser’s legendary all-terrain chassis is now available in a customizable platform for commercial use. Full floating DynaTrac Pro Series 80 axles, Hero 2-speed transfer create the ultimate go- anywhere response vehicle.

CORE was created with the ultimate custom build team in mind. Recognizing a gap in the market for high-performing 4X4 chassis for commercial and DIY overland vehicle-builder applications, EarthCruiser brings the foundational prowess of our EXP and FX models to a fully customizable chassis system. Launched with a production V8 cab over chassis, upfitted with CORE’s proprietary four-wheel drive system, CORE has changed the way professionals and overlanding experts build for total-control performance.

Single or Dual Cab Flexibility
CORE is available in single or dual cab configurations with seating configurations from two to six.

Our custom-built CORE chassis are designed to withstand an unparalleled range of environments and situations. Tested to the extreme, just as we do with our EXP and FX EarthCruiser models, CORE brings confidence and proprietary expertise to any overland build project. Through our CORE chassis platform, we can provide a range of professionals and expert builders with the technology and equipment they need to complete the toughest jobs and adventures on the planet.

Imagine Yours
Interested parties can work with us to create a custom configuration to meet their unique mission requirements or build themselves based on our production 4×4 single or dual cab chassis.

When performance is a mandatory starting point

CORE was created to meet the growing demand for high-performing 4X4 chassis for commercial and DIY overland vehicle-builder applications. Launched with a production V8 cab over chassis, upfitted with CORE’s proprietary four-wheel drive system, CORE has changed the way professionals and overlanding experts build for total-control performance.
  • Commercial
  • DIY
Interested parties in commercial application can purchase a CORE chassis directly to build upon themselves or work with EarthCruiser and to create a custom configuration to meet their unique mission requirements including: Forest service, Homeland Security, fish and game, remote/mobile medicine and disaster relief situations.

CORE commercial models provide shelter and support in a range of critical ways, and can be outfitted with a variety of systems including a top-grade water filtration system and solar power generation, both necessities for extended excursions through remote areas. Potential commercial applications include:
  • Providing clean water in a hurricane
  • CORE chassis with steel flatbed option to haul equipment through rugged terrain and remote areas
  • Delivering mobile shelter units to provide power and fresh water or mobile command centers
  • Jobs requiring robust all-weather four-wheel drive systems
  • Foreign governments (natural disasters) – easily shipped anywhere in the world and operate effectively out of the box vs most domestic build products
  • Mobile vaccinations in remote locations around the globe (Dr.s w/o Borders)
  • Ultimately, various floor plans will be offered to fit the needs of different agencies and commercial applications.
Additionally, there is a robust DIY market as people seek to build their dream expedition vehicle. This trend is evident in the explosion of DIY vans, school buses, and old trucks that are becoming new home-bases for adventure seekers and digital nomads. This chassis system, which was designed to take the legendary EarthCruiser EXP and FX to all corners of the globe, can now be purchased and incorporated into the world’s best DIY vehicles.

The CORE chassis platform is unlike any other offering available for the personal-use market. It’s rigorously tested, infused with proprietary components, street legal, and meets required certifications and standards, something a pieced-together chassis can’t deliver. If you are looking to create your own expedition vehicle, and need a rugged and proven platform, look no further than CORE Vehicles.
