This truck is purpose-built to conquer any terrain, equipped with an array of AEV off-road enhancements that help performance and deliver unmatched capability.

As an off-road-capable midsize truck, it aims to deliver off-road performance without compromising on ride quality, handling, or safety.

It has a payload of 1,050 lbs. and a max trailering of 5,500 lbs. The vehicle’s propulsion system includes a 2.7L Turbo DOHC I-4 engine with a power output of 310 horsepower. It is coupled with an 8-speed automatic transmission.
