Carbon Motors Introduces TX7 Tactical Vehicle

Maker of Diesel Police Car Introduces Big Brother

Dec 18, 2012
The name Carbon Motors may be familiar to you for its E7 patrol car, a purpose-built police car designed specifically for law enforcement duties from the ground up, with integrated emergency lighting, and other features specifically made for the boys and girls in blue. Realizing that law enforcement isn't just a simple one-size-fits-all task, the company is introducing the TX7 tactical response vehicle.

Like the E7, the TX7 features integrated features such as a communications console, integrated siren, emergency and flood lighting. It features a reconfigurable 10-passenger capacity for tactical teams or prisoner transport, a holding cell, secure evidence storage, 360-degree exterior surveillance, and integrated infrared cameras.

The TX7 is about the size of a long-wheelbase, high-roof Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, or a little longer than a long-bed, crew cab full-size truck. The wheelbase is 176 inches, about the length of your typical compact sedan, and overall length is 272 inches. The drivetrain is an unspecified turbodiesel V-8 producing 300 hp and 660 lb-ft of torque, mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. However, based on those figures, we can reasonably surmise it’s the medium-duty version of the GM 6.6-liter Duramax V-8, most likely bolted to a trusty Allison transmission.
Of course, all of this equipment and capability doesn’t come cheaply; the TX7 starts at $149,950.
