Jay Leno's Garage GM Defense Infantry Squad Vehicle ISV
GM Defense LLC celebrated the first delivery of their Infantry Squad Vehicle (ISV) to the U.S. Army earlier this year, and now, Jay Leno gets a chance to take it off-road. This light and agile all-terrain troop carrier is designed transport a nine-Soldier infantry squad and their equipment.

The ISV is based on the 2020 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 midsize truck architecture and utilizes around 90% proven commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) parts, including Chevrolet Performance race components. At a hefty 5,000-pounds, it was specially engineered to fulfill military requirements, while still providing rapid ground mobility. It’s light enough to be sling loaded from a UH-60 Blackhawk helicopter or fit inside a CH-47 Chinook helicopter for air transport.

The value we bring to our Army customer is our willingness to listen and adapt. During Soldier testing, the feedback we received was paramount in delivering a vehicle that met Soldiers’ needs, while maximizing safety and performance and taking their comfort into consideration. The production ISV we’re delivering today is an evolution from our original prototype design, and it’s certainly a vehicle that is a source of pride for the team,” said Mark Dickens, GM Defense chief engineer.
