The Evade is the first unarmored SUV from Conquest Vehicles, and it will be out this fall with prices starting from $579.000.
The first unarmored SUV coming from Conquest Vehicles is the Evade and it was announced this week. It borrows a lot of its styling cues from the company's Knight XV model, but we do notice the narrower fender flares, a new look for the headlights and taillights, the hood scoop, an updated front grille, a wider back door and the third sunroof. To improve access, the vehicle's rear bumper has an integrated step.
Compared to the armored body of the Knight XV, the body of the Evade is an aluminum-steel mild blend that obviously is a lot lighter. Conquest Vehicles has borrowed the chassis of the Ford F550 Super Duty, while engine choices include a gasoline unit and a diesel, but there aren't additional details about these two power units. We can tell you that stainless steel was used for making the hinges, steering wheel, key and the running boards, while the handles are made from aluminum.
As standard, the Conquest Evade comes with front + rear commercial-grade air ride suspension, roof-mounted 360-degree joystick-controlled searchlights, power windows and the FLIR night vision camera on the front and rear of the vehicle.
The Conquest Evade will be out this fall and has a base price of $579.000. More details are available in the press release below.
