Steyr Daimler Puch All Wheel Drives.

Steyr Daimler Puch are manufacturers of some unique and capable all wheel drive vehicles.

Dating from 1958 to 1976 the Haflinger is a pocket-size 4WD that four strong men can lift. The Pinzgauer, made as a 4x4 and a 6x6, is the Haflinger's younger but bigger brother.

As well as making their own 4x4s and 6x6s in the factory at Graz Austria, Steyr Daimler Puch have also made the G-wagen for Mercedes Benz, 4x4 vans for VW, 4WD transmission for the Fiat Panda, and are assembling the Jeep Grand Cherokee. As if 1997 they are also building the 4WD transmission of the Land Rover Freelander. They contributed much of the know how for the US Army's FMTV 4x4 and 6x6 trucks.
