SEMA-Member Companies Join Partnership to Give Away Charity Vehicle

By SEMA Editors

Several SEMA-member companies are teaming up with XPLORE, Motive Club and Toyota of Escondido to give away a H.E.R.O.E.S. charity vehicle.

XPLORE is teaming up with Motive Club and Toyota of Escondido to give away H.E.R.O.E.S. (Help-Encourage-Rescue-Organize-Equip-Serve) charity vehicles with all of the profits donated to worthy causes.

To kick off the program, Motive Club is giving away a new $65,000 Stage 4 XPLORE FJ Cruiser provided by Toyota of Escondido to benefit Harvest America Crusades. Motive Club members are automatically entered to win. While no purchase is necessary to enter to win, Motive Club membership for $12 per year delivers discounts for online shopping at major retailers and give-away promotions for vehicles and many other prizes provided by sponsors.

“Giving away this very special FJ Cruiser is a great way to help to raise awareness and support for Harvest America Crusades at stadiums in Anaheim, August 23–25, and in Philadelphia, September 28–29,” said Ron Flint, president of Motive Group.

The H.E.R.O.E.S. XPLORE FJ Cruiser features systems and accessories from many SEMA-member companies, including ARB 4x4 Accessories; winch, rock sliders, bull-bar, rear bumper and snorkel from Warn Industries; aluminum wheels from Method Race Wheels; a polished stainless-steel cat-back performance exhaust from MagnaFlow; and Katzkin seats with suede inserts that are designed for optimum off-road performance. Additional companies providing products include OME Suspension, IPF Lighting and tires from BFGoodrich.

Stage 4 is XPLORE’s most exclusive trim level and includes features, such as a matte clear paint over the factory army green. The traditional Land Cruiser white roof is complemented by a custom matching white grille. Brushed metal XPLORE badges, not plastic, adorn the doors inside and out. The ARB roof-top tent sleeps two comfortably and serves as an alternative to tent-camping on the ground.
