The AVNER is based on the Dodge RAM 5500 heavy duty platform which is one of the best 4X4 commercial platforms in its category. A powerful 6.7-liter Cummins® Turbo water cooled diesel engine boosting 400 HP and 610 lb-ft torque is coupled with an AISIN® six-speed automatic transmission and transfer case. This powertrain, with its unique factory-installed exhaust brake, easily handles the 8.8 ton, 19,500-lb GVW Avner, even at 60% slopes.

The Avner capsule is a spacious “box”, with a unique flat floor throughout the entire cabin, from firewall to rear door. The wide, flat-floored cabin allows for three front-row seats, comfortably seating passengers in full battle gear. Configurations include driver, navigator and commander, or driver and two security personnel.

The Avner utilizes a ballistic system with add-on layers, offering various levels of armor protection. Add on armor panels are all replaceable, repairable, and upgradeable.
