Riders who take the Buggy out bounce over debris and skim over surfaces with ease. The off-road Buggies are great for both seasoned veterans and rookie racers looking for a more serious ride.

Buggies are a middleweight vehicle class that is generally good on all forms of terrain.

They are strong enough to withstand collisions from Bikes and ATVs and can challenge Rally Cars, but collisions with anything bigger, such as Racing Trucks, can lead to a loss of control or a wreck.

They are fairly maneuverable and are able to get out of some sticky situations during a race. Deep water and mud can slow them down, but they are generally a decent lighter alternative to the Racing Trucks.

Most Buggies in the series use a double wishbone suspension setup.

Trivia[]

  • In MotorStorm and Apocalypse, the exhaust note that the buggies produce is similar to that of a flat four. This however does not apply to the Humbler Diablo, which produces a sound that is akin to a proper V8 engine. However in Pacific Rift, the buggies have the sound of a V8 engine.
  • There is a small buggy that appears in the E3 2005 trailer for MotorStorm that does not appear in the final version of the game. It is seen a few times in the trailer; most notably when it knocks an ATV over and gets spun out and ran over by a yellow rally car. It most likely was replaced by the Voodoo Rattler.
