Sherp ATV is a go anywhere truck with massive tires

The little vehicle you see here isn’t exactly a truck and it isn't exactly an ATV. It's a bit of a mix of the two and according to the folks who have seen it in action and the video you can watch below, the Sherp looks to be a capable little beastie.

2016 Chevrolet Tahoe Review

2016 Chevrolet Tahoe Review
