A New International Harvester Scout Would Be Awesome
International Harvester Baja Brings Back the Scout in Rugged Rendering - autoevolution
Abimelec Design has created a fun concept of what the original Scout would look like with design cues from the recently released Bronco. Although the IH company has been well known by off-road purists, it has come back in some interesting ways, one of them being the inclusion of the Scout in the recently released Snowrunner video game. While it may not be the most practical vehicle in the game, it is definitely one of the prettiest. Before we start a war in the comments, Abimelec has created a special fusion between the two. Apart from its in-game stardom, the Scout is a very important talking point in the offroad conversation. While the render slaps some of the styling cues from the new Bronco on to the International Harvester, things used to be different. The former is often seen as the spiritual origin of its flat-nosed 4x4 aesthetic, but the latter came first.
International Harvester Scout
Today, the International Harvester Company is little more than a distant memory - a name known mostly to off-road enthusiasts from an earlier time - but back in the early s, the manufacturer helped create the recreational off-road SUV market as it exists today. Now, inspired by the retro-modern-styled Ford Bronco , an artist has reimagined the International Harvester Scout as a modern rugged SUV with styling influenced by the new Bronco. The modernized rendition of the International Harvester Scout was shared on Facebook over the weekend by Abimelec Design, rendered in green with an off-white roof, and black wheels with big, machined-finish hub covers. The front fascia has been left essentially unaltered, albeit now reading "International" instead of "Bronco", echoing the big "International" badge spanning across the horizontal swing-opening rear hatch. The grille, like the big rear nameplate, is also body-color - a nice, classic-looking touch that differentiates it from the SUV its based on.
Back in , the only thing close was the Jeep CJ which is now the Wrangler. Could International be looking at bringing back the Scout? The Scout was discontinued in International became Navistar and has been committed to commercial trucks only.
