This concept vehicle from Mercedes-Benz is the 7.X, which combines the properties of two different Mercedes-Benz model series. As is the case with the two lighter LAPVs, the vehicle’s engine / transmission and cockpit are taken from the G-Class, while the frame and the axles are from the Unimog range.
Because the larger vehicle, the LAPV 7.X, uses components from the Unimog modular system, it opens up an entirely new dimension of all-terrain capability for a patrol vehicle. It comes standard with a ballistic protection according to STANAG Level 3 and mine protection to at least Level 2. As a result, the LAPV 7.X is a vehicle with a higher payload and again better off-road capability with advanced protection.
This concept has a stunning ground clearance and an automatic tire filling system which can be a real life saver in tough situations…
