Hartge Hunter - a tougher BMW X3
A shortened axel ratio, combined with increased output from the 3.0L diesel engine (up to 253hp from 218hp) enables the Hunter to climb slopes of up to 48°. Further terrain capabilities are certified with a wading depth of 50 cm and an axle articulation index of 63 percent. For those looking for more hunting power however Hartge is able to tune the 3.0sd version to have 335hp instead of its 283hp by modifying the ECU.
With offroad driving in mind, many practical accessories have been included too, such as washable Sensatec seat covers and enough space for hunting gear including a tub for carrying the game.
