Kia has unveiled the design for its upcoming 2.5- and 5-ton next-generation military off-roader, an open-top all-terrain vehicle known as the KLTV or Kia Light Tactical Vehicle.

Based on the Kia Mohave, a SUV known as Borrego in some markets, the military vehicle will feature automatic transmissions; anti-lock brakes; vehicle stability control; rear parking assist; around-view monitors; satellite navigation and heated seats.

The Hummer-like off-roader will be powered by a 7.0-liter diesel engine, but Kia plans to apply electric powertrain, autonomous driving and hydrogen fuel-cell technologies to its military off-roaders. Kia also plan to make a bullet-proof variant of the much heavier 5-ton vehicle model.
