The AM General HUMVEE Civilian (C) – Series Kit will make its world debut at the International Defence Exhibition & Conference (IDEX) tradeshow held at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre, Feb. 17 – 21, 2013, booth 03-B07 in the U.S. Pavilion.
Initial orders for this one-of-a-kind kit are now being taken at the newly updated HUMVEE C-Series web site, genuinehumveekit.com, for the base price of $59,995.00.
“We are very pleased to debut the kit here in Abu Dhabi,” said AM General Executive Director Commercial Services, William Thompson. “It represents a major milestone of moving from the concept stage, to the reality of having a completed kit available for public inspection. The IDEX Show is an ideal venue for AM General as we’re responding to the rapidly increasing global demand for our products and services.”
The HUMVEE C-Series Kit will offer the best in industry mobility technology with a host of off-road ready options, including AM General’s Central Tire Inflation System, electronic locking differentials and others. The initial C-Series offering is a soft top body style.
The C-Series kit is capable of a 2-ton payload and up to 10,000 pounds of towing capacity depending on the powertrain you choose. It also offers a 4-wheel independent suspension, geared hubs and torque biasing differentials in the base model kit. A majority of the kit’s intricate sub-assemblies are provided complete, saving the purchaser most of the labor intensive assembly normally associated with a kit building project. The sub-assemblies are manufactured in Mishawaka, Ind., by the ISO registered, award-winning AM General factory workforce.
Each of the kit’s individual items offers vast improvements over past commercial offerings, providing customers with the latest in off-road technology. Additionally, the existing kit accessory market has expanded technologies – both in mechanics and electronics – to better support the project car builder, allowing future customers to develop unique and striking customizations.
The HUMVEE C-Series Kit is designed and intended only for civilian commercial use and will not be sold for military purposes. Kits sold outside the United States are subject to U.S. export laws.
