The Navistar Defense MXT MVU needs to be in our Garages!

NAV582_MXT_MVU_snow
Navistar Defense’s MXT MVU is a multi-role armored personal vehicle that isn’t that much larger than a civilian heavy-duty pickup truck. Recently some of the members of The Fast Lane Car/Truck team spotted one of these beasties undergoing testing in a Michigan testing center. According to Navistar Defense, regarding the MXT MVU: “It eats up rough terrain.”

We don’t doubt it. So, when can we expect Navistar Defense to put a price-tag on the MXT MVU for public consumption? Sorry guys, there are (currently) no plans to sell this baby to the public. Bummer.

“The MXT MVU is a versatile unarmored vehicle that is highly customizable to meet a variety of specific mission needs. Available in regular, extended and crew cab versions, the MXT MVU can be configured to accommodate as many as six war fighters in full military gear, as well as an array of weapons, navigation and communications systems.
