Tomcar TX
The Tomcar TX appears to be something you’d expect to see on the battlefield, and that’s because this vehicle was originally developed for Israeli special forces operatives. However, this UTV (utility vehicle) can be purchased by civilians and used to go off-road or even rock crawling. Available in TX4 (4-seat), TX3 (2-seat) with a large tray, or TX5 (2-seat) that has a smaller tray as well as a shorter wheelbase, all of the models are built on a welded-up steel frame chassis designs that incorporates a roll cage, aluminum skid tray underside protection the entire underside, and adjustable four-wheel independent suspension.



To help the TX series tackle the toughest of terrains, it has incorporated 4WD and is powered by a 1.5-liter petrol 4-cylinder generating 107 horsepower and 80 pound-feet of torque, mated to a CVT transmission. The company is currently working on diesel and electric versions of the TX as we speak. How can it go rock crawling? The positioning of the heavy motor of course, and when things get real hairy, pneumatically activated locking diffs are installed on both the front and rear axles. They are available now, priced from $36,500 USD.
