The front suspension is independent and consists of double-wishbone arms, coil springs and double-action hydraulic shock-absorbers. The front wheels are driven by hypoid angular transmission and bevel differential gears. For amphibious operations, the front and rear axles can be pressurized. The rear suspension consists of semi-elliptical springs and double-action telescopic shock-absorbers. The EE-11 Urutu can run at a maximum road speed of 105 km/h with a maximum road range of 850 km. The vehicle is able to negotiate gradient up to 60% and side slope up to 30%. The EE-11 Urutu can climb vertical obstacle of maximum 0.6m.
