The company has already presented a very interesting take on the Ferrari 488 GTB that was drifted like a Japanese vehicle and now they’re turning their attention to another iconic model and setup.
While the first clip included a supercar and a lot of tarmac, this time around we’re taken off-road in the new Joyride Baja. The setting already sounds like it has a lot of potential, but there’s even more. At the wheel of the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited sits none other than Rhys Millen – he ditched the 488 GTB most likely because he ran out of rubber. The 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon is still able to pack a lot of heat and action – but Spain’s track got swapped for Mexico’s Baja Desert. And Millen gets to showcase why driving across a desert is so exciting (not to mention dangerous without a crew and backup).
One second he’s being taken across some salt flats, and then he’s catching big air waves over sand dunes. Of course, some loose rocks are also on the menu. The jeep looks up to the challenge, with the Rubicon using the usual 3.6-liter V6 from the rest of the Wranglers, but with locking front and rear differentials and an especially low gear ratio for those crawl moments.
Pennzoil has also promised there are more episodes in the Joyride series – with the oil company most likely coming up with another crazy idea that showcases the skills of Millen and some iconic vehicle.
