The MaxxPro Wrecker is the latest version of the MaxxPro family vehicle. Navistar unveiled its MaxxPro Wrecker MRAP vehicle in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., on February 25, shortly after the Army and the Marine Corps released their RFI. The MaxxPro Wrecker, a towing vehicle that can haul 81,000 pounds, was designed to target a requirement such as the MRAP recovery vehicle. The International® MaxxPro® Wrecker MRAP vehicle allows two- to three-man crews to retrieve damaged or mission-disabled vehicles and carry out other support missions. The new MaxxPro utility variant provides its crew with the same ballistics, mine and Improvised Explosive Devise (IED) protection used on all MaxxPro MRAP vehicles currently in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The MaxxPro Wrecker uses the V-shape hull design coupled with armor and other survivability features.
