The Marine Corps Medium Tactical Vehicle Replacement (MTVR) Program is designed to replace the existing medium fleet with new and more advanced fleet. The MTVR, affectionately known as the 'seven-ton truck', is being used as the replacement for the old 5-ton truck. The MTVR will have an increased payload of 7 tons off-road, 12 tons on-road, a high performance suspension, traction control, new engine, automatic transmission, and corrosion technology upgrades.
The Medium Tactical Vehicle Replacement program is a USMC program managed by the Army. The USMC has a need to replace its existing medium truck fleet with a more robust vehicle capable of carrying more payload, at a faster speed, over more difficult terrain. While this program began as a remanufacture effort for 5 Ton trucks, it has evolved into the procurement of a new advanced technology vehicle carrying increased payload with added mobility and corrosion protection.
