ADRIAN, Mich., Jan. 18, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- American families love their trucks and they love the outdoors. Today Venchurs Vehicle Systems announced plans for a new line of trucks for the XPLORE Adventure Series. Fully equipped and ready-to-go trucks, from all of the major car companies, can be driven from the showroom floor directly to your next outdoor adventure. The first model revealed is a Stage 4 full-size Ram 4X4 truck loaded with a full complement of serious equipment to transport you and your family just about anywhere...and bring you back in style. The XPLORE truck program joins the XPLORE Jeep and Toyota programs in support and promotion of the great outdoors though the National Parks.
"Trucks are the workhorses that support outdoor enthusiasts of all flavors," says Jeff Wyatt, CEO of Venchurs. "From hauling boats, hunting gear, dirt bikes, ATVs and camping gear to serving as a mobile campsite, trucks do it all. XPLORE trucks are fitted with the best-of-the-best equipment and designed to stand apart in function, style and performance."
XPLORE Adventure Series Ram trucks will be available through select Dodge/Ram/Jeep dealerships nationwide along with the XPLORE Wranglers. Each XPLORE Ram owner receives a free, one-year annual pass to all National Parks and other Federal lands, a one-year membership in XPLORE Club and a subscription to XPLORE Lifestyle Journal; a high quality quarterly featuring amazing places to go, fun things to do and interesting people. For every XPLORE truck sold, a donation is made to the National Park Foundation.
XPLORE Adventure Series Ram trucks come in four packages featuring increasing levels of equipment and capability. XPLORE Stage 1 vehicle packages feature Katzkin leather interiors as a builder level for a wide variety of options including dealer installed genuine Mopar parts and accessories.
XPLORE Stage 2 vehicle packages feature XPLORE/Method black aluminum wheels, massive BF Goodrich off-road rubber, Bilstein 5100 Series adjustable shocks, an XPLORE polished stainless-steel cat-back exhaust system, XPLORE aluminum badges and XPLORE heavy-duty floor mats.

Other available equipment includes Thule racks, Warn winches and industrial strength tonneau covers; all are available as mix-and-match accessories. Stage 4 XPLORE trucks are built-to-order at Venchurs Vehicle Systems facilities in Southern California or Adrian, Michigan. Custom matte paint finishes, graphics, leather interiors, AMP PowerStep retractable running boards, Bed-Xtender, bed-slides and more are all available on these trucks.
