They say that the Toyota Land Cruiser AT35 is a proven success over millions of miles in every terrain possible
Toyota land Cruiser is without a shadow of a doubt is the most popular SUV here in the Middle East. Needless to say which part of the continent is unknown of the popularity of the Toyota Land Cruiser? It is the most capable and the trustable SUV here on the planet earth. Hence it is used by UN missions, rich people, and government agencies, and then by freedom fighters and then by many more as well. The bandwidth is just too wide!
Arctic Trucks on other hand falls in the same sentence quite comfortably. Established in the frozen region of North Pole in Iceland itself, Artic Trucks prides itself or making mods to the 4WD pickups and SUVs for enduring the extreme conditions. Exploration companies and excursions joyriders who trek in such environs perhaps to save Polar bears or Seals turn to Arctic Trucks as their preferred vehicle.
So what is Arctic Trucks doing here in the Middle East? Well, there is a flipped equivalent environment here and is totally unforgiving as well. It’s known as Rub al Khali, or literally translated as the Empty Quarter- one of the largest contiguous sand deserts in the world (1,000 kilometers in length, and 500 kilometers wide, spanning across four Arab nations: The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Oman United Arab Emirates, and Yemen). And yes just like joyrider visits the frozen seas, Empty Quarter is also frequented by the people wearing Keffiyeh covering their faces from the brash winds filled with sands. Arctic Trucks is offering something special for them to embark on their journey with confidence and cover distances under the starlit skies devoided of any light pollution in the desert.
