Oshkosh MRAP ATV (M-ATV)

The Oshkosh M-ATV has a cryptic name that translates to Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) All Terrain Vehicle (ATV). The purpose of the big 4×4 truck is very simple. It’s all about providing better protection and more capability for our troops in combat situations and hostile environments.

The large personnel/passenger compartment is armored and designed to redirect forces of an explosion away from the people inside. The M-ATV rides on a sophisticated independent suspension system that allows for plenty of wheel travel to go over off-road obstacle and cushion the ride on rough terrain.

Under the hood is a 7.2L inline-6 CAT C7 diesel engine that is rated at 925 lb-ft of torque.
