The Cross8 represents a merger between the Crewman’s half-chassis, half- monocoque "torque arm" construction with the Adventra’s Cross Trac all-wheel drivetrain, resulting in a passenger car-derived V8 crew-cab ute.
It features the same L-arm front suspension, same wider wheel tracks, same 38/62 front/rear torque split, same 4WD slip targets and even the same plastic external bodywork as the Adventra AWD wagon.
It also shares the Adventra 17-inch alloy wheels and larger brake rotors.
The 205mm ride height features an interior identical to that of Crewman SS and uses the same 225kW/460Nm version of Holden’s GEN III 5.7 V8. Weight is 1947kg while the payload is 738kg.
