The GURKHA RPV Civilian Edition shares the same body and dimensions as the fully armored RPV variant. The base model is equipped with the 6.7L V8 turbo diesel Scorpion engine with 660 lb-ft of torque mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission. A 2-speed transfer case with electronic shift on the fly 4×4 is also standard equipment for those who prefer to take this 13,000 lb beast for an off-road excursion. The RPV is equipped with 2-piece forged aluminum 20” wheels from Hutchinson Defense with 41” tire options available from Continental, Goodyear or Michelin. Standing at 98” tall, 97” wide and 20’ long you will most likely need to build an addition to your garage to store this massive truck.
The base civilian edition shares the same functional and utilitarian interior as the fully armored RPV. GPS navigation, reverse camera, reverse sensors, roof escape hatch and remote power door locks are standard features equipped in the base model. Numerous upgrades are available including leather upholstered seats, breathing air system, fire suppression, thermal imaging systems, off-road lighting packages or a full VIP interior package.
Regardless of how you configure your custom RPV Civilian Edition, you will raise eye brows and cell phone cameras wherever you go. Plan for extra time at the gas station to answer questions or possibly sign autographs for the crowd that this vehicle draws.
