Features

Capabilities

  • POWER: Take advantage of the range of a gas engine and the silent, emission-free power of an electric drivetrain.
  • SUSPENSION AND HANDLING: Four-wheel independent suspension comes standard for a smoother, more comfortable ride.
  • RELIABILITY: World-class engineering and a two-year warranty give you plenty to count on with Ambush iS.
  • HAULING AND STORAGE: Tow up to 1,200 lbs. - and pack another 500 in the bed - with Ambush iS.

Power

  • 4WD GAS/ELECTRIC HYBRID DRIVETRAIN: Choose your weapon. Ambush iS features two separate drivetrains – so you can opt for the range of a gas engine or the silent power of an electric drivetrain. Or activate both for on-demand 4WD muscle when you need it.
  • 28HP GAS POWER: The rear wheels on Ambush iS are driven by a 28HP, 720cc fuel-injected gas engine, so no adventure is out of range.
  • GET UP TO 5X CLOSER TO YOUR PREY: For hunters, stealth is everything. The electric drivetrain on Ambush iS is noise-free and emission-free, so you can get up to 85% closer to your prey to sneak in for the kill. You'll spend less time hiking and hauling, and more time putting your next target in your sights.
  • 4WD HYBRID POWER: Activate both the gas and electric powertrains for 4WD, and get the best of both worlds with unequaled power and control.
  • 48V ELECTRIC POWER: A robust 48V AC electric drivetrain silently powers the front wheels on Ambush iS, giving you silent, emission-free power. Perfect for hunters who want to remain undetected.
  • REGEN MODE: A day of driving gets Ambush iS all charged up. Regen Mode recharges the electric powertrain every time you use the gas engine. A dash-mounted switch regulates power to create resistance, which is sent to the battery pack to use later.

Reliability

  • ROBUST 2-YEAR WARRANTY: Years of testing, exacting standards and precise craftsmanship. We don't think you'll need our two-year warranty, but we've added it to give you more peace of mind.
  • AWARD-WINNING U.S. MANUFACTURING: This vehicle is manufactured at our state-of-the-art facility in Augusta, GA, home of Textron Specialized Vehicles. The facility is designed to ensure that every inch of your Bad Boy® is ready to ride on day one, with rigorous end-of-line testing, laser wheel alignment and automated systems for total consistency.
  • BACKED BY THE POWER OF TEXTRON: Been there, done that. Bad Boy is part of the Textron family, which has experience in manufacturing brands like Bell Helicopter, Cessna®, Beechcraft® and Jacobsen®. Our engineers have also spent decades designing high-end, off-road racing vehicles and automotive and military technologies.

Suspension and Handling

  • FOUR-WHEEL INDEPENDENT SUSPENSION: Ambush iS makes every ride a smooth one with its precision-tuned four-wheel independent suspension system. From springs to shocks, our suspension system effortlessly conquers the most challenging terrain.
