Brand new chassis from Tamiya: GF-02.
4WD, many gears, à la GF-01.
Panel Van body. I haven't found any concrete statement on whether ABS, or polycarbonate.
Chassis not dissimilar to GF-01, but lower-slung and (according to Tamiya) "more realistic and less comical".
Taken from Modelsport:
Tamiya is delighted to announce a new off-road car featuring big tires; the name is the Squash Van, and it is paired with a new gear-driven 4WD GF-02 chassis.
While the GF-01 chassis features a comical design, the GF-02 chassis employs a more realistic wheelbase and a frame with ladder / pipe motifs. This R/C assembly kit is inspired by 1950s American panel vans, and offers an excellent drive even on grass or uneven surfaces.
About the Model

- 123mm large-diameter lug pattern tires allow powerful performance and superior handling feel.
- Stickers feature designs such as squash illustrations, product logo, and triple pin stripes in gold, black and blue.
- ESC & Type 540 Motor Included
About the GF-02 chassis
The gear-driven 4WD GF-02 chassis features its motor in a low, central position in the lightweight, durable monocoque frame, and transmits power to front and rear via gears. The long wheelbase and wide tread setup ensures stable off-road performance. The slim frame features ladder/pipe motifs and features integrated sealed gearboxes which help keep stones out.
Front and rear gear differentials allow smooth cornering, while separately sold pinion gears offer a choice from three types of gear ratios, and a motor guard enhances reliability off-road. The 4-wheel double wishbone suspension employs four friction dampers, and the steering servo is positioned on the left with identical-length tie-rods

Personally, I'd need to see photos of the chassis, but it will be nice to have a 4WD Tamiya truck with a similar design to the GF-01, which doesn't constantly fall-over and wheelie.
