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.
We applied our years of experience and rigorous field testing and certification to create the only cab-over 4×4 platform available in the North American market. Our CORE DIY vehicle is the ideal platform for the overland vehicle builder.

Our CORE Commercial platform is available with a flatbed ideal for remote, rugged terrain transport requiring robust all-weather four-wheel-drive systems.

Our CORE Hero vehicle is designed to meet the needs of emergency services departments in mission-critical situations.
