Philippine Truck Converter To Bring Ford Super Duty To Australia

For Australian residents looking to get behind the wheel of a new, heavy-duty pickup truck like the Ford Super Duty, options are few, but they do exist.

And they’re about to grow larger; according to Australian website CarAdvice, Philippine company Shogun Conversions recently earned full volume government certification in Australia to import the Chevrolet Silverado 2500 and it twin, the GMC Sierra 2500 and 3500. The company says it is in the final stages to receive the same certification for the Ram 2500 and 3500, and the Ford Super Duty F-250 and F-350, as well.

CarAdvice reports that RHD truck conversions from Australia-based companies like Performax (which converts a variety of Chevy, GMC, Ford, Dodge and Toyota trucks) and Ram truck-converter American Special Vehicles typically sell their wares for somewhere in the neighborhood of $140k to $160k (AUS). But given that Shogun Conversions will be modifying the Ford Super Duty and other heavy-duty trucks in the Philippines, where labor is considerably cheaper, Shogun might be able to undercut the competition.

Shogun Conversions has also reportedly brokered a deal with company Australian Industrial Vehicles to provide trucks for heavy industry, mining, agriculture, and other demanding fields.
