GM Defense won a $214.3-million contract to build, field and sustain the US Army’s new Infantry Squad Vehicle (ISV). Based on the 2020 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 midsize truck, the ISV aims to provide rapid ground mobility and is essentially a light as well as agile all-terrain troop carrier. It can be sling loaded from a UH-60 Blackhawk helicopter and is even compact enough to fit inside a CH-47 Chinook helicopter.
The Colorado ZR2 was selected for the ISV, due to its ability to leverage 90 percent commercial off-the-shelf parts, which include the Multimatic dual spool-valve dampers as well as Chevrolet Performance suspension components. It’s powered by a 2.8L Duramax turbo-diesel engine generating 186-horsepower, mated to a six-speed automatic transmission.
