Do you need a 500-horsepower military-inspired utility vehicle that is fitted with ballistic armor, Kevlar protection, bulletproof glass, and thermal night vision? Well, do we have the right vehicle for you, as long as you are willing to plunk down an eye-opening amount of money. The intimidating-looking Rezvani Tank is not your typical SUV, in fact it’s not even an SUV. Rezvani classifies their new behemoth as an XUV, “Xtreme Utility Vehicle.” And it fucks.
You’ll notice that the Tank may look vaguely familiar despite its ambitious design, that is because it is built on a Jeep Wrangler-based chassis. The vehicle offers an on-demand four-wheel drive system on all trims and an off-road suspension. Rezvani offers an optional an extreme off-road package that adds a 6-inch lift, 37 x 12.5” off-road tires, Dynatrac ProRock XD60/80 axle set with E-lockers, Dynatrac ProGrip front and rear brake kit, Fox 2.5-inch internal bypass shocks, and an air compressor so you can go anywhere.
The Tank can be upgraded to boast a myriad of military-themed features such as FLIR thermal night vision, run-flat tires, ballistic armor, bulletproof glass, and Kevlar protection for the fuel tank, radiator, and floorpan. Perfect for dropping the kids off at school and then running a search-and-rescue operation in a rogue nation.
The California-based Rezvani didn’t just make a military-inspired vehicle, they also gave it some real zip. The Tank can whip around the roads thanks to a 500-horsepower 6.4-liter Hemi V8 delivering 430 pound-feet of torque. This is the same powerplant that you’ll find in a Challenger and Charger Scat Pack, as well as the Durango SRT. However, with all of that armor and Kevlar weighing this bad boy down, performance will be hurt.
But if you’re going to be wheeling around in battle zones, why not do it in comfort? The cabin is luxurious and features hand-stitched hand-stitched leather seats, suede headliner, and a 7.9-inch central infotainment screen. Plus it offers a head-up display (HUD) for the SUV driver who doesn’t have time to look away from potential attacks happening on the road in front of them.
But all of this luxury and Mad Max-esque equipment comes at a price, a very extravagant one. The Rezvani Tank has a starting base price of $178,500, which is approximately $150,000 more than a base Jeep Wrangler. Rezvani expects to start deliveries late this year for the consumer who is ready for the apocalypse and collapse of society.
