ROUSH LIGHTWEIGHT HIGH-MOBILITY PLATFORM

27 Jun 05. The first production version of Roush’s all-new lightweight 6×6 all-terrain vehicle will be unveiled at DVD. During operational trials, the vehicle has demonstrated a remarkable level of mobility and performance – plus a large payload capacity for size. The base platform has fulfilled and exceeded all original concept requirements. The programme began after Roush successfully won a competitive turnkey contract to design, develop and build a new lightweight, high-mobility modular platform for the UK MoD.
The new platform features fully independent front suspension and a ‘walking beam’ rear bogey – supporting an ultra-light chassis. Full time 6×6 all wheel-drive is delivered via fully automatic transmission and a torque converter.
