TOMCAR is a military and commercial off-road vehicle with high ground clearance and anti-squat system. It has various models with two or four seats and a canopy or payload bed. TOMCARs are durable and can run on gasoline or diesel.

A TOMCAR is a type of off-road vehicle designed for commercial or military use. It features high ground clearance, an anti-squat system that prevents the rear of the vehicle from sinking during acceleration, and a proper size to fit certain types of helicopters. The TOMCAR is used for various military applications around the world, particularly in Israel, as well as along the southern border of the United States. The vehicle is well-suited to the rough terrain of these areas, and can be driven at high speeds when necessary.

TOMCAR’s original models were produced in the early to mid-1980s, and all were two-seat models designed to carry two people and a small to moderate amount of equipment. Some of the early models were only one-seat vehicles, intended to be used by a single person. Newer models also feature two seats, although some TOMCAR models now feature four seats to accommodate more passengers. Cars typically feature a canopy or roof to protect passengers from sunlight and rollover impact, and the rear of the vehicle typically features a storage or payload bed to store equipment during transport.

The TOMCAR’s high ground clearance makes it suitable for off-road driving, especially at high speeds or on extremely rough terrain. The anti-squat feature prevents rear-end squat during acceleration, meaning the driver will have greater control over the vehicle at higher speeds, and ground clearance will not suffer as the driver goes further. fast or slower. TOMCARs are usually equipped with a significant amount of suspension, allowing the vehicle to easily drive over rough terrain. The articulated suspension also allows the vehicle to be driven where vehicles with solid axles could not go.

The TOMCAR’s body is typically made of high-grade steel for durability during off-road use, though the underbody of the vehicle is typically protected by an aluminum skid plate. Aluminum is used because it is lightweight and tends to slide over obstacles rather than catch or bend as a result of impact; However, some TOMCAR models feature steel skid plates to keep costs down. Engines can run on gasoline or diesel, depending on the size and function of the vehicle, as well as owner preference. The motors are usually quite small and light.
