MaxxPro Dash MRAP Vehicle on Show at AUSA

Navistar
: 26 February, 2010  (New Product)
Navistar Defense is exhibiting the latest Mine Resistant Ambush Protected MaxxPro Dash vehicle with DXM independent suspension for improved performance
Navistar Defense will showcase its enhanced International MaxxPro Dash Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicle with DXM independent suspension for attendees at the 2010 Association of the United States Army (AUSA) Winter Symposium and Exposition.


“The Dash with DXM independent suspension demonstrates our work in improved performance as we continue to bring our significant design force to bear on product improvements for our troops,” said Regis Luther, vice president, military products and initiatives. “We are also focused on the swift delivery of this capability and have designed kits and rolling chassis to quickly retrofit the remainder of the MaxxPro and 7000 Series fleets if needed.”

The enhanced MaxxPro Dash with DXM independent suspension offers added mobility for off-road travel while still providing service personnel with Category I MRAP survivability protection. A number of other added features that are included on the enhanced Dash include insulation and door upgrades, as well as an inclinometer, which acts as a level and measures side slope during vehicle operation.

The DXM independent suspension solution is provided by Hendrickson Truck Suspension Systems and AxleTech International. Navistar selected this no-compromises suspension system after conducting an extensive trade study. The DXM design also minimizes the effort needed to integrate the system onto existing MaxxPro and 7000 Series vehicles should the military be interested in retrofitting the company’s fleets.

On February 16, Navistar received an order for 1,050 Dash vehicles, bringing the company’s total MRAP orders to 7,494. Navistar also has provided more than 8,100 International 7000 Series vehicles to the Afghan National Army and Afghan National Police. These vehicles can also be upgraded with the DXM independent suspension.
