What’s it like to drive the massive Evade not-armoured SUV? We talk to the company founder about why millionaires are starting to demand a more “civilized” version of Conquest’s Ford F-550-based SUV. Elegant, intelligent and utilitarian…EVADE is the new standard in luxury handcrafted SUVs.
EVADE’s unarmored new body style, design and aesthetic includes new headlights and taillights sleekly wrapping around the sides of the vehicle, narrower fender flares, a redesigned grille, hood scoop, the addition of a third tandem sunroof and a wider backdoor to accommodate EVADE’s wider body frame to allow for exit/entry of executive security though the rear of the vehicle. The rear bumper now features an integrated step to simplify this access.
EVADE’s luxurious interior cabin space provides over 400 cubic feet and carefully blends military inspired design cues with elegant and rich finishes and houses a new ergonomically designed cockpit and cabin while offering both driver and passengers touch screen technology.
EVADE incorporates various composite materials, metals, high grade leathers and high grade alcantara to create luxury finishes throughout the vehicle. Conquest Vehicles’ mandate of `hand crafted’ is populated throughout EVADE whereby elements including the vehicle’s steering wheel, proprietary hinges, running boards and even the key itself are machined out of solid stainless steel. The vehicles’ handles are machined out of a solid block of aluminum.
Built on a Ford F550 Super Duty Chassis, EVADE’s massive unarmored skin is made from an aluminum-mild steel blend, making it significantly lighter then its armored cousin, the Knight XV. Standard features includefront and rear commercial grade air ride suspension, power windows, and 360-degree roof mounted, joystick-controlled searchlights. EVADE is offered in 4×4, and is available with either a gasoline or diesel engine. EVADE will also come equipped with FLIR night vision camera systems in the front and rear of the vehicle.
EVADE’s prominent exterior design cues, layers and angles will be seamlessly incorporated into the interior of the vehicle’s cabin design without losing the feel of being in a luxury SUV.
