The Multi-Purpose Truck (MPT) was designed to allow customers to configure payload modules customized to their specific needs. The MPT is a commercial base 4×4 platform chassis truck (cab and chassis) with 8,391kg (18,500lbs) GVW and 2,359kg (5,200lbs) payload capacity engineered to serve the extreme-environment needs of energy, mining, industrial, and government customers around the world.
The MPT is engineered and designed based on existing and test-proven AM General components, Off-the-Shelf (OTS) AM General items, Commercial OTS (COTS) items from other commercial vehicles and Military COTS (M-COTS) items. The MPT was designed to allow customers to configure payload modules based on their needs. The Cab & Chassis Base Platform is the base vehicle configuration. MPT modules can be developed by the purchasing country’s engineering experts or, if needed, by AM General engineers. By making it commercially available, customers do not have to go through the Us government’s Foreign Military Sales (FMS) programme, but can receive the chassis, where AM General then uses a local supply chain to build up a truck, upon customer specification.

Solid state modules used for circuit protection instead of traditional circuit breakers and relays, providing control over electrical loads with software and providing enhanced fault detection diagnostics. Modules can include several applicable configurations utilising a 2-man cab. Other variants include the 2-man w/ Flat Bed, 2+6 Personnel Carrier, 4-man Base w/ Cargo box, and 9-Crew Capacity Vehicle.
