Because someone mentioned retro…

Built pretty much like a Durango, V8, AWD, 7 seats… that whole thing.


Great work, everyone. I’m not really a binner - I’d prefer to send back an entry to fix a small thing than just throw it in the trash - and so far we’ve got some great contenders, all legit as of this moment. 6 so far.


The 2015 Ibis Bengal GT4, equipped with a 412hp V8. Y’know, for when you’ve got to get there before the snow really gets bad…


2015 Courageux Grande Tournee


i felt like the original looked a bit new for 2015, so I’ve done a pre facelift model now


The 2015 Wells Accolade

Whether the journey is short

or whether the journey is long

Through a mountain pass

or just taking the kids to class

The 2015 Accolade will get you there.


2015 Mara Rodyna 4.0 GLX

The Mara Rodyna (‘family’) 3-row MPV was a new addition to the Mara lineup in the early 2010s. The Rodyna was based upon the long wheelbase (2.8m) 3rd gen SUV (Kanyon) and ute (Bizon) platform and could therefore benefit from both the additional emphasis on comfort as well as - to an extent - the built-in off-road capabilities of that platform. It was the longer brother of the Mara Ekskurs.

Peculiarly, the 3rd gen Kanyon/Bizon/etc. platforms switched to transverse engines in the interest of cheaper packaging for the surprisingly popular FWD variants. Ordering the top-of-the-line GLX trim package and 4.0 V8 engine essentially meant ticking all available boxes on the ordering sheet. While V8 automatically meant AWD, the MPV version was - unlike the SUV and ute - available only with an open differential.

Notably, the V8 engine for the 2015 model year was carried over from the previous generation due to packaging and teething issues with the new Efektyv DOHC V8. The DOHC just doesn’t fit the 2.8m wheelbase body’s engine bay transversely; it easily fits into the 2.6m and 3.0m versions though….


Reinventing the classic that has been all over the continents that did (and still does) everything from farming to anti air defense, the new OverLander debuted in 2010 with a modern suspension setup and modern construction, leaving though the classic styling cues from the origional 1960s version. New for 2015 is the luxury towing package that includes a 9 speed transmission, 20 gallon fuel tank, and Towsafe™ that monitors the trailer, and even automatically checks the trailer tongue weight to make sure that you have not accidently made your trip dangerous. The 20 gallon fuel tank will allow for a towing range with a 27 foot SlipStream to 400 miles, and with the vehicle not towing, over 500 miles. Reliability and enviormental ruggedness were also first in thought, with the chassis being made of partial aluminum, and the panels being corrosion resistant steel. These combined materials also makes for a very safe vehicle for the whole family, no matter where they are seated. The all wheel drive setup also has the newest of electronic stability control that helps the driver in sudden dangers or, in the most awful of snow and mud, goes hand in hand with the electronic locking front and rear differentials. In the case that the only way to get in or out of a place involves an unimproved trail, the OverLander has a skid plate system to protect the front and rear differentials and suspension systems. The 5 gallon water jug on the back is also comes standard with every OverLander. Happy motoring!


2015 Apoapsis Prograde AdventureSport

Here at the Apoapsis Devision of Bazard Motors, we’ve been studying the decline of our station wagons’ sales in the US, and this has led our marketing teams to a discovery: if we just raise the ride height 50mm, add some decorative plastic to the bottom, and omit the word “wagon” from advertising, we can instantly sell 3 times as many units! which still isn’t very many please help

So introducing the all-new 2015 Apoapsis Prograde Wa-aaa- eeh… uh… a-adventure sport!

The car you need,
masquerading as the car you want.


Fantastic work, everyone. 11 entries so far. Lots of interesting takes on the wagon, crossover, SUV 3-row genre. Its a shame I’ll only get 140 words (or is it characters? Hope its at least words) per entry to share with everyone, because there’s some creative things going on.

I’m off work next week so, after the 4th, I hope to have a quick turnaround for everyone.


While we wait for entries in the next few days, here’s a few fun pics of the entrants so far:

This almost wrecked my PC, lol. Raytracing 11 cars hahaha.

The early arrivals are making their way up the mountain!


140 characters per car is the limit, not 140 words. It’s not a hard limit (unless you want it to be) but try and stick to that rough amount.
