Rezvani is teasing their redesigned 2020 Tank with 1,000 horsepower and an angry makeover.
Last we heard from Rezvani, they’d just released their Military Edition Tank, which as the name suggests, came with bulletproof armoring to stop anything short of a howitzer. It also came with run-flat tires, forward-looking infrared sensors (FLIR), smoke dispensers, and an electrified door handle to discourage the occasional carjacker.
It also cost $300,000, so you certainly had to pay for all that military hardware.
Now we’re being teased with an entirely new version of the Tank, and Rezvani says it will be 100% redesigned and share absolutely no parts with the previous 2019 model.
Teaser images released on their website and on social media show the Tank has gotten one angry makeover. While the 2019 model was smooth yet chunky curves (kinda like peanut butter), the 2020 model is all hard and angry lines.
According to their press release, the Tank will still have the same body-on-frame construction as before and the chassis will be made of steel. We suspect it will also still be based on the Jeep Wrangler platform (likely the new JK Wrangler), but extensively modified.
Rezvani promises all the same toys will return for the 2020 model, but with added protection for electromagnetic pulse blasts (EMP) for E1, E2, and E3 categories. We’re not going to go too far into the details of each of these categories, but let’s just say they have to do with surviving the EMP pulse produced by a nuclear explosion.
There’s no word on whether or not the Tank could survive a nuclear explosion. One guesses that’ll be reserved for the top-of-the-line trim.
The last Tank came equipped with a standard 392 HEMI V8 from FCA producing 500 horsepower or the 6.2-L Hellcat V8 producing 1,000 horsepower. We’re told that the 6.2-L V8 will certainly be returning with the same 1,000 horsepower as before, although specifically the one from the Dodge Demon and not the Hellcat.
Deliveries are expected to begin this winter. Pricing wasn’t announced, but the current tank starts at $165,000, so you can guess how pricey the 2020 model will be.
