[PDC] Political Design Challenge Round 7: Can't Give Up The Pickup [CLOSED]


#21

For whatever reason (probably offroad score) my heavy utility score goes down if I increase the load capacity, so my truck ends up either with an extremely low load capacity or a very low heavy utility score. Shouldn’t the load capacity be more important?


#22

I’ve felt so ridiculously nervous thinking about answering these questions. Hadn’t realised heavy utility did weird stuff like that. So probably assume that you’ll at least need enough load capacity to be “authentic” as a pickup. I feel bad about not answering this query until now with 46 hours to go :frowning:

I’m wondering if I made my car truck too small after trimming down the first 2400kg thing I made

The engine didn’t really fit in it . . .

2003 MTC Creek

A truck for the American working man, with some unique Australian ruggedness.

Very offroad focused. Coils up front and leafs at the back. Power comes from an undersquare, cast iron turbocharged 4.0 SOHC inline six with 248 hp/4200 rpm and 392 lb ft/2400 rpm, and the engine gives quite the meaty grunt. Sending power to all four wheels is a 5 speed manual with a manual locking diff and transfer case. Mileage is average for a six cylinder truck with 17.2 mpg combined, and an EPA rating of 14 city/20 highway

Retailing at under 23k USD, MTC(Melbourne Trucking Corporation) hopes that American buyers will see the Creek as a viable alternative to the Ram, F150, and Silverado

Somehow, it’s even worse than what I remember

Not trying to pressure anyone, but any update on this? I know a lot has been going on everywhere lately.
