VLF debuted the X-Series off-road vehicle at the 2017 North American International Auto Show, which clearly takes just a wee bit of inspiration from the beloved Hummer H2.
The VLF X-Series actually has GM bones, too. Specifically, it’s a 2017 Chevrolet Colorado underneath. However, Henrik Fisker, designer of the X-Series, has imagined all new body panels and a rear canopy.
VLF’s business model is to take production vehicles and outfit them with their own unique styling, and occasionally, different powertrains. There’s clearly quite a few parts bin items here, including C7 Corvette taillights flipped vertically. It’s not our cup of tea, but beauty sits in the eye of the beholder, as they say.
As for its off-road credentials, the VLF X-Series features 11.5 inches of ground clearance and departure angles of 44.7 and 48 degrees. It also sports a set of 35-inch off-road tires, wrapped around 20-inch aluminum wheels.
When it comes to power, the X-Series still features the Colorado’s same 3.6-liter LGZ V6 engine, which pushes 306 hp and 275 lb-ft of torque. The Colorado’s eight-speed automatic is also present.
The VLF X-Series isn’t a concept vehicle, though. The automaker plans to begin assembling the vehicle at its Auburn Hills, Michigan plant alongside other VLF vehicles.
