The Joint Light Tactical Vehicle is here, and is powered by diesel. Starting with the capabilities of the L-ATV, it’s a significant upgrade over the Humvee. While some of the data about the vehicle is classified, such as armor specs, other technical specifications have been revealed. The JLTV is powered by a Gale Banks Engineering 866T, 6.6 L V8 diesel engine and can produce anything between 340 to 575 hp. It comes with an Allison 2500SP 6-speed automatic and has a top speed of 70 mph on road. It can ford in water up to depths of 1.5 meters without a fording kit. Additionally, the L-ATV can be fitted with the Oshkosh ProPulse Hybrid Diesel-Electric System which can improve fuel economy and serve as an on-board generator with enough output to power an airfield or hospital.
