Pioneer Evolution XC
Built as the newest model in the Coromal Pioneer range, say hello to the Pioneer Evolution XC “PEX”. The PEX is designed as a robust off-roader for the avid adventurer who loves exploring the Australian outback.
With new and improved design, technologies and construction, the PEX boasts endless features and innovation, setting it aside from the traditionally built caravans that you typically see within the industry.
As with all Coromal caravans, the PEX is entirely built at our Brisbane factory by our experienced and dedicated Apollo production and design team, from concept to design to production.
The PEX is aimed at bringing the customer a demonstrably engineered product that is aligned with off-road styling. A CNC cut, laminated van simply changes the market comparisons that are made so easily with the planked alternatives in the industry.
Future Teck™ construction brings new and improved functionality and superior ‘strength to weight ratio’,
making it the clear choice for our construction method. Using this construction method, we have been able to greatly improve the engineering using a fully rolled aluminium section on the roof fixing.
Effectively, the PEX is a one-piece design. The roof panel starts at the front leading edge of the caravan and finishes at the rear bumper. The seamless, one-piece design means no plastic moulding, less joints and less expansion, while reducing the opportunity of water ingress.
The new FRV chassis is a whopping 130 kgs lighter than a standard built chassis. It is manufactured from 550 grade steel – typically used in high-end engineering applications such as the chassis on commercial trucks. Built using laser cut technology and requiring very little welding, all the fixings are of industrial automotive grade. The styling and colour is aimed at evoking the sense of an engineered function, being strong but light-weight. It is fully certified and has passed all FEA analysis. It is labelled to draw attention to the engineered design and the materials.
The Esy-Tow™ Sport X Rally suspension is the next most obvious step in the development of our wishbone system. It is engineered from high grade superior seamless steel, used in race car applications. It is larger and uses round tubes rather than squares. It includes spherical bearings that are adjustable and are the same automotive parts used in commercial trucks. All these features bring greater strength and confidence to the system.
Our new light weight ensuite partition is composed of our Future Teck™ sandwich panel construction. The main benefits include being light weight, resistant to water damage (as there is no timber), and is also structurally stronger as it holds the roof and side walls together, while also being used to divide the ensuite wet area from the rest of the van.
Other contemporary features include the new rear air foil – an extruded aero dynamically shaped aluminium spoiler, our automotive glass hopper windows, light weight furniture systems and new shower and drainage unit which is light and modern in style.
