AutoHunter Spotlight: 2020 Fat Truck, amphibious off-road vehicle

Extreme truck powered by a 2.2-liter Caterpillar-sourced diesel engine


AutoHunter, the online auction platform driven by ClassicCars.com, has launched its inaugural Truck Week – a whole day’s docket dedicated to trucks and SUVs with the auctions ending the following week, October 19. Among the dozen vehicles listed, this 2020 Fat Truck 2.8C stands out from the crowd.

These extreme off-roaders are created by Zeal Motors Inc., established in 2018, and are ideal for “contractors working on power lines, pipelines, telecommunications and wind farms, as well as first-responders performing search and rescue missions over remote and/or inhospitable terrain,” says the engine provider of the Fat Tucks, Caterpillar.

These trucks not only tackle the most challenging on-land terrain, but are equipped with amphibious capabilities.

This example up for auction on AutoHunter is finished in gray with black-tinted windows that allow for 360-degree visibility. The body also features an exoskeleton to protect the vehicle in case it rolls over. A matching trailer is capable of hauling a 2,200-pound payload.

According to the Fat Truck website, the truck features numerous safety features, including ROPS certification, EPA compliance, an automatic tire inflation system, front and rear retractable ladders and maximum speed limiter.

The truck has 20 inches of ground clearance and stands 100-inches wide and 146.5-inches long and can travel 25 mph on land and 3.1 mph on water.

The interior is configured to hold up to 8 passengers with black buckets seats, equipped with a 3-point harness, in front and pull-down seats in the rear. Additional interior features include sliding side windows, a fire extinguisher, first-aid kit, air conditioning,  Bluetooth stereo system, and a backup camera with an alarm.

Driving is by the way of joystick found in the center of the cab.

Power comes from a Caterpillar-sourced 2.2-liter inline-4 cylinder turbo-diesel engine and hydrostatic automatic transmission.

This Fat Truck’s auction ends October 19 at 12:00 p.m. PDT.
