Ice, Ice Baby: Iceland-based Arctic Trucks plans to drive custom F-150 from Canada to Greenland

Toronto, Ontario — A Iceland-based company could soon take some of the stress out of winter driving. Iceland’s Arctic Trucks has announced plans to move into the United States with its extreme off-road pickups.

The company has now started to build trucks based on the Ford F-150 and founder Emil Grímsson told Fox News Autos it is now in the process of opening up an assembly location in New Hampshire that will start supplying vehicles to North America later this year.

Two prototypes are currently being built for testing and will soon embark on a shakedown journey that will take them a thousand miles across Canada from Yellowknife to Cambridge Bay and over the sea ice to Resolute, from where the expedition left for the pole. But that’s the easy part.

Next winter, the team plans to head east toward the frozen waters of Baffin Bay in an attempt to reach Greenland.

“I guess we’ll find out,” said Grímsson.
