Ever since the ROXOR came out wearing the classic lines of a vintage 4×4, it’s attracted a lot of attention. Now after a brief hiatus, it’s back and still dressed to impress.

Much of the ROXOR’s praise stems from its time-tested recipe of a body-on-frame off-roader, with leaf springs at all four corners and solid axles front and rear. It even carries a traditional two-speed manual transfer case that allows for part-time four-wheel drive.

While that architecture is decidedly old school, it’s also about as reliable as an anvil. (Though the ROXOR does get a tad more high-tech with fancy disc brakes all around.)

Under the hood, you’ll find a 2.5L turbodiesel four-banger making 62 horsepower and 144 lb.-ft. or torque. Mated to a mandatory five-speed transmission, the ROXOR folks say the UTV has a 55 mph top speed, a 350 pound payload capacity, and a 3,490 pound tow rating.

It’s also got about nine inches of ground clearance.

And the ROXOR seems well suited to customization, with an accessories catalog that includes things like winches, off-road lights, and (ermagherd!) even snow tracks.

Before you get too excited here, tune-up the sad trombone again, because the ROXOR is still for off-road driving only and not intended for use on public streets or highways. But if you own some land or enjoy recreational off-roading, the ROXOR looks like it packs a lot of versatility in a 96 inch wheelbase.

The ROXOR is made in Auburn Hills, Michigan and has two models: base (open cab) and all-weather (half cab with a heater). It’s available in two colors: red and black.

You can get more info on the ROXOR at its official website.
