Powersports giant Polaris has announced that the U.S. Marine Corps has ordered 144 MRZR-D4 diesel-powered buggies dispatch with each of the Corps’ active infantry regiments. These rigs will help Marines get around where speed and maneuverability are more important than armor.
The MRZR-D4, introduced back in May, is heavy duty, tan-painted variant of the popular RZR off-road toy with a 993cc 4-stroke single-overhead cam three-cylinder turbo diesel engine. This is a new fuel to get used in one of these vehicles, and it looks like this is the first time the U.S. military will actually be sending some to the front line.
