Since the conception of Terradyne in 2011, its core product has been the GURKHA, available in three configurations – LAPV, MPV or RPV. Throughout the years the GURKHA has been validated at various test facilities, participated in numerous global capability trials and continuously protected lives in the field, and it continues to make numerous appearances on the Hollywood big screen.
In late 2014, the RPV Civilian Edition was released and introduced as an exclusive limited production tactical vehicle available to the public. The Civilian Edition shares the same body as the standard issue RPV, standing at 98 inches tall, 99 inches wide, over 20 feet in length and with a 141-inch wheelbase. In other words, the RPV is 19 inches taller, 12 inches wider and 62 inches longer with an 11-inch extended wheelbase when compared next to the Hummer H1 Alpha.
Available engine choices include a 6.7-liter V8 turbo diesel mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission or a 6.8-liter V10 gas engine mated to a 5-speed automatic transmission. A 2-speed transfer case with electronic shift on the fly 4×4 and 40.5-inch wheels are standard equipment. Personalizing your RPV’s interior, paint color and optional upgrades is up to you.
Hummers will have to step aside and Jeeps can stay home; the RPV is here and has hit the streets in several US states. If you want a unique vehicle, or perhaps your company is looking to gain a competitive edge with a PR vehicle, the GURKHA RPV Civilian Edition is the ultimate truck for you.
