Pickup trucks are all well and good, but if you really wanted a powerful cargo-carrying, off-roading truck, you go for the mighty Dodge W200. It looks like a pickup truck but a little bit beefier. To the young today, this is the Hummer of the era. Just like the Hummer, the W200 is the civilian development of a military vehicle. With full four-wheel drive capabilities powered by a massive 6.8-L V8 engine, this is a true workhorse. The huge wheelbase that the truck comes with allows it to go further than most trucks.
In the past, little wondered why it was pressed into service as military ambulance, front line supply truck, and troop transport in the Second World War and beyond. It even found use with the Dutch armed forces, creating a market for Dodge W200 onderdelen (parts'). The W200 changed little from its predecessor and, in fact, saw an upgrade of its engine. Today, the Dodge W200 is showing its agesuperficially, at least. Discontinued for almost half a century now, those lucky enough to still have one parked in their garage will tell you that, under the hood, it is still a very powerful and reliable workhorse.
This reliability is partly due to the fact that it is the product of an era where performance far superseded appearancethings don't necessarily have to look good so long as they do the job they were designed for well. With a lot of Dodge W200 parts out there in the marketfor anything from the smallest components to the largest parts, it doesn't take long to restore an old W200 or revitalize a gracefully aging one. Nearly all systems are still covered by manufacturersso you can find a crankshaft for the engine, compressors for the air conditioning, and even mufflers for the exhaust. The Dodge W200 proves that you simple cannot put a good truck down.
