After initially launching the Rezvani Tank in 2017, the California-based brand is now teasing a completely new version of the rugged SUV for the 2020 model year. Where the previous examples use the frame from a the JK-generation Jeep Wrangler, the latest one switches to the new JL-gen Wrangler chassis.
"The vision was to offer a fresh design for a purpose-built, rugged, off-road capable vehicle that was muscular, well proportioned, and brand new; as exciting to the eyes as it is to drive," company CEO Ferris Rezvani said in the updated Tank's teaser.

The teaser images suggest that the new Tank looks similar to the existing model. While these photos don't provide a good look at the lower portion of the vehicle, the roofline appears even more angular than before. The hood gains an even more complex shape, and there are now louvers at the top of the fenders at both ends.
Rezvani's teaser only offers a few technical details about the 2020 Tank, like that it rides on a suspension from Fox Racing. Buyers will be able to specify an optional TANK X package what will put a Dodge-Challenger-SRT-Demon-sourced 6.2-liter supercharged Hellcat V8 under the hood. Rather than the stock 707-horsepower (527-kilowatt) output, Rezvani will tune the powerplant to over 1,000 hp (746 kW).
As an additional offering, Rezvani will offer the Tank Military Edition that will include military-grade electromagnetic pulse protection. According to the company, the package will guard against the E1 blast of electromagnetic radiation, which can occur during an extreme event like a nuclear blast; the E2 pulse, which is similar to what takes place from a lightning strike, and E3 pulse, which is what happens during solar flares.
Rezvani will give the 2020 Tank a full debut this summer and will begin deliveries in the winter. If anyone wants to be the first in line to get the new SUV, the company is taking $2,500 refundable deposits for the vehicles now.

Irvine, CA., – In just a few weeks Rezvani Motors will debut its most capable vehicle to date: the all new 2020 Tank. Designed to be an antidote to the current dull SUV segment, Tank is a military-inspired, purpose-built, extreme utility vehicle loaded with capable features both inside and out. The 2020 Tank is all new and shares no parts with it's predecessor, but will share the DNA.
Thanks to a body on steel frame design, a world-class suspension system designed in partnership with FOX racing suspensions, and massive off-road tires, the Rezvani Tank will come with serious off-road chops. The optional TANK X will offer a 6.2L Supercharged V8 sourced from the Dodge Demon and further tuned to over 1,000 Horsepower. In addition to the list of standard features in the previous generation, Tank Military Edition will feature standard military grade EMP (Electromagnetic Pulse) protection covering E1, E2 and E3 electromagnetic pulses to protect critical electronic systems.
"The vision was to offer a fresh design for a purpose-built, rugged, off-road capable vehicle that was muscular, well proportioned, and brand new; as exciting to the eyes as it is to drive ” says CEO Ferris Rezvani. “The design was inspired by extreme off-road concepts typcially never seen on the road, but is completely street legal and ready for production to be able to be driven and enjoyed as a daily driver."
The new 2020 Rezvani Tank will make its debut this summer. Interested buyers can place a $2,500 refundable deposit today, with deliveries beginning winter 2019. Full details and images will be released at a later date. Visit http://www.rezvanimotors.com/ 2020-tank-teaser for more information.
