In the original MotorStorm, the Kalahari is one of the 2 default unlocked Racing Trucks in Monument Valley. However in Pacific Rift, it takes much longer to unlock, requiring the "Can't Touch This" trophy (winning a Rank 8 Festival race without wrecking).
- This vehicle is named after a region in Africa.
- It is revealed in MotorStorm: Apocalypse that it was Hangnail Johnson's truck of choice in the Monument Valley Festival. However, whether it was actually his signature vehicle is unknown.
- In Pacific Rift, Lucky Jack Flynn (red/white/blue livery) is an AI Character seen driving this vehicle.
