What Can I Expect

MAN military truck driving at Bicester - drive the Army's latest 4x4 truck! Experiences take place at Bicester Heritage in Oxfordshire and give you a 20-minute drive in an amazing modern military truck.

This agile piece of kit is 4x4. It has a six-cylinder turbo diesel engine. It's 12-speed. It knocks out 326bhp. It can reach speeds of up to 90km/hour. And for those of you who know your off-road vehicles, this MAN has lockable front, rear, centre and cross diffs. Not bad for a pretty hefty truck capable of carrying a whopping six-tonne payload!

German heavy vehicle manufacturer MAN has been designing and building trucks for both commercial and military use for years. The British Army chose the HX60 as the replacement for the long-serving DAF and this MAN monster has certainly lived up to expectations.

Durable, with excellent on and off-road ability, the HX60 is the epitome of modern military vehicles. As you'll see when you drive it a Bicester, the cab is pretty comfy, with air suspension seats and air conditioning too. Even the windscreens have been carefully considered : they're vertical, to avoid annoying reflections as you drive. Neat!

Capable of operating in tricky terrain in harsh conditions, a standard HX60 can drive through fords up to .75m deep, and temperatures as low as -32 or as high as +49 degrees won't stop this MAN!

Used by military forces around the world, the HX60 carries troops and cargo, tows with ease and can even be equipped with a light machine gun. Despite its size, it's airlifted into a Hercules without difficulty.

Now you've heard all about the truck's competences, let's see what you can do when you drive the impressive MAN military truck at historic Bicester. You'll be on a purpose-built off-road track, the perfect habitat for your thoroughly modern military 4x4 utility truck. And if you want to share the experience, make sure you choose the 'with passenger' voucher to your basket for one person to join you up front in the cab for the ride!
