The Monterra 4x4 and Monterra 6x6 trucks are key models in Acela's extreme-duty range. Originally designed for military use, these trucks are now available for commercial purposes.

The Monterra 4x4 offers high mobility and can navigate through tough terrains, making it perfect for construction, logging, and utility operations. The 6x6 variant provides even greater capability, handling heavier loads while maintaining excellent off-road performance.

A recent addition to their lineup is the Straya, the first four-wheel-drive, Class 5, high-mobility cab-over truck chassis in North America. The Straya is built on a robust Isuzu chassis, paired with top-tier military-grade components, ensuring it can handle the most demanding job sites. Its design emphasizes maneuverability and visibility, crucial for navigating tight spaces and challenging conditions.
