Oshkosh unveiled a new modernized Striker at FDIC-Indianapolis, April 2010. It is 2,000 pounds lighter so it is faster and more maneuverable. The new Striker was designed with extensive feedback from firefighters and fire chiefs. It has a 700 HP Deutz TCD 16.0L V8 Diesel engine with over 2,000 pound-feet of torque. This new edition has 84 sq. ft. of glass in the front windscreen, and for the first time has crosslays. Engine maintenance is facilitated by a walk-in, step-up platform incorporated into the rear of the unit, making major systems easily serviced.
