Meet Romania's Awesome Off-Road Fire And Rescue Truck
21 October 2013 - Autoblog
If you're looking for an off-road vehicle in Romania, Ghe-O has you covered, offering rugged, trail-ready trucks. Now, Ghe-O has taken the next step by creating the ultimate emergency vehicle capable of tackling just about any terrain. Looking like the oversized spawn of a Jeep Wrangler and Hummer H1, the Ghe-O Rescue was recently unveiled at the Bucharest Auto Show.
The Rescue is nearly three feet longer and about two feet wider than a Hummer H1, and weighs about 500 pounds less, too. Those mammoth dimensions allow the Rescue to carry 11 passengers, but its design makes it a go-anywhere vehicle with a vertical approach angle, excellent ground clearance, lockable axles and powerful powertrains (customers can choose between a gas engine producing 340 to 500 horsepower, or a diesel engine putting out 218 to 304 hp). The biggest advantage of the Rescue, though, might be its available accessories like rear half-tracks, inflatable tire-mounted pillows for flotation, and water pumps with a tank to help fight fires. Military-spec Rescue models can also add electromagnetic and water protection for the engine. Watch the Ghe-O Rescue dominate land, snow and water in the video posted below.
