Jay Leno Tests SWAT Armored Vehicle [Video]
That’s because the Lenco BearCat is built for the Los Angeles Police Department’s SWAT force. These things are also used by the army, so it means business.
The chassis comes from a class 5 Ford pickup, the F-550, and the engine is a 6.7-liter twin-turbo diesel making about 450 hp. This armored machine will not stop an anti-tank round but any small arms fire will be no problem. Amazingly, the 4+ ton vehicle does 70 miles per hour.
Rescue 4 here is also kitted out with oxygen an medical equipment that paramedics would need for use in the field.
