It is precisely this unusual blend of cabin sophistication and MILITEM's muscular body that makes the brand unique.
Let's take a look at the equipment of the models exhibited at the Essen Motor Show. MILITEM MAGNUM is a revision of the RAM 1500 Laramie that radically changes its market positioning, taking it into a luxury niche. In fact, the MILITEM MAGNUM combines the dimensions of a versatile 4×4 pick-up with the style elements of a sedan. The package is rounded off by technical improvements to the suspension, brakes, exhaust and wheels. The cabin is extremely spacious and has great attention to detail, with extensive use of Alcantara which, thanks to its lightness, reduces the overall weight of the car and improves its performance.
The length and ground clearance make the MILITEM MAGNUM unique in its kind. The model is not an ordinary pick-up, but a real exclusive vehicle. MILITEM MAGNUM is characterized by its unsurpassed off-road capability, unmistakable presence, functionality, robustness and top performance. Despite its pronounced off-road suitability, the MILITEM MAGNUM can also be used in other areas without any problems. It's a city model like MILITEM is a status symbol and it can also be driven while enjoying your favorite outdoor use.
The MILITEM MAGNUM has a double panoramic roof, LED headlights and folding footrests. Every body detail is built to MILITEM specifications and can be ordered in VTR (as standard) or with carbon (optional). The redesigned grille defines the family feel of the MILITEM range and is reinforced by the MILITEM Extra Tire Coverage painted in body color bumpers and fenders. There are also new MILITEM 22-inch alloy wheels of the Black Edition with wide all-terrain tires of size 325/50 R22, which were previously only installed on the FERŌX500.
However, MILITEM MAGNUM is not just about looks. There is also a lot to be said for performance and safety. In fact, this model has an adjustable set-up developed ad hoc by MILITEM technicians. The electronically adjustable air suspension combined with the MILITEM Extreme Performance lift kit allows comfortable driving regardless of the load with the same set-up and can be adapted to the driving style and speed of the driver. MILITEM MAGNUM has five levels of air suspension height to overcome any terrain obstacle while still fitting into a low roof garage.
MILITEM has also developed an integrated system that allows the automatic opening and closing of the bed cover with the vehicle's remote control. Another characteristic element is the option of covering the platform with hi-tech nautical material, which can be customized in terms of colour. Considering this is a direct link to the sailing and yachting world, the MAGNUM's towing capacity is 3.500 kg and that it comes standard with a tow hitch. MILITEM MAGNUM can be the perfect dinghy, easily towing powerful boats.
MILITEM MAGNUM is powered by a legendary, powerful 5,7 liter V8 Hemi engine. The unit has a maximum power of 401 CV at 5.600 rpm and torque of 733 Nm at 3.950 rpm, including that provided by the eTorque system. The engine uses a Multi-Displacement-System (MDS), which allows only 4 of the 8 cylinders to be used, reducing consumption and CO₂ emissions. MILITEM MAGNUM is equipped with a 48V mild hybrid eTorque motor and has a special alternator that recharges the lithium-ion batteries while driving and braking. The technology delivers more power and at the same time reduces consumption and emissions by 10%.
The hybrid system intervenes mainly at low revs, when accelerating, to ensure an additional torque of 176 Nm. The MILITEM MAGNUM is equipped with an 8-speed automatic transmission with selectable all-wheel drive. Off-road, the MILITEM MAGNUM shows its 4×4 suitability with an approach angle of 23,1°, approach angle of 27,1°, tipping angle of 28° and a minimum distance of 260 mm.
