Acela Straya Class 5 Truck

March 7, 2022

The Straya is a four-wheel drive, Class 5 truck chassis using military vehicle components and capabilities for extreme commercial and governmental applications.

The Straya is equipped with Meritor 3000 Series axles featuring the field-proven U.S. military production wheel-ends currently used on the U.S. Army’s Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV). It also has Driver-Controlled Differential Lockers (DCDL) and 41-inch military tires.

Optional onboard Central Tire Inflation System (CTIS) is a driver-controlled push-button capability that adjusts tire pressures from 95 to 17 psi. This allows the truck to be driven on-highway at highway speeds, and off-highway through challenging terrain. In off-highway conditions, the lower tire pressure settings allow the Straya to mimic tracked vehicle performance, according to the company.

The Straya will be available in single- and crew-cab configurations in multiple wheelbases and provides 19.6 inches of ground clearance and up to 36 inches of water fording capability. The cab-over design offers a small turning radius of 49 feet, on 150-inch wheelbase with a 12-foot body. The Straya seats up to seven people with multiple seating options.
