Ford Super Duty Powers Custom Rhino GX


One of the most interesting vehicles we saw in the aftermarket basement, called Kentia Hall, at the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show was in the U.S. Specialty Vehicle booth. This boutique custom truck company makes military-style SUVs that look and play like rugged survivalist rigs, but they sport just about every luxury detail available.

USSV had this Rhino GX on display, and all we can say is we want one. This truck uses a standard 4×4 F-450 Super Duty chassis cab with modified heavy-duty 10-lug live axles, and a custom front- and rear-link/hydraulic suspension. The Rhino GX uses a factory Ford 6.8-liter 30-valve V-10 gas engine (rated at 362 horsepower and 457 pounds-feet of torque) and can be configured as a Sport model (with smaller tires and two rows of seats) or in its standard GX configuration (with 38-inch tires and seating for as many as seven with a third row).

All Rhino GX luxury SUVs use the Ford V-10, have a 40-gallon fuel tank, a 140.8-inch wheelbase and have a starting price just under $200,000. To find out more about the Rhino GX or the smaller Rhino XT (based off the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited), click here. photos by Steven Pham
