Here’s what drivers have to say about Tomcar.

“Get behind the wheel and you’ll find an off-road performance like nothing else on earth. Heading over a former quarry site above 20 m.p.h. in a conventional 4×4 would be utter madness, but in the Tomcar it feels fine….”
— Total Off-Road Magazine 
“I can’t tell you how amazing this beautifully crafted and engineered off-road machine is. It seems to flatten any type of terrain unlucky enough to get in its path.”
— ATV Action Magazine
“Once you get familiar with how well the Tomcar’s suspension has been engineered, you soon relax and actually relish the opportunity to tackle the most difficult terrain.”
— Canadian Tire Driver Magazine 
“It’s built tougher than almost any vehicle we’ve experienced, as noted by the bulletproof steel used throughout. We got air under all four tires on more than one occasion and several times thought it might sprout wings.”
— ATV Magazine
“We searched the world for the most exciting yet easy to use vehicles that would afford our guests the excitement and comfort they deserve, and we found the Tomcar. There is no other vehicle on the planet that will allow a person who has never ridden off road before to just get in and go. We’re very happy with our choice.”
— Zev Nabler, Owner, Desert Wolf Tours
“The uniqueness of Tomcar is summed up by reaffirming its destiny to be your off-road car of the future with an impeccable record of safety coupled by an ease of use that cannot be duplicated by any other off-road vehicle on the market.”
— Green Zebra Tours
“A military-grade off-road vehicle that’s the culmination of progressive engineering and practical accessorizing. Tomcar has anticipated the contingencies and designed the vehicle around them.”
— Recoil Magazine
“They’re somewhere between a big ATV and a tube frame rock buggy, and entirely wonderful.”
— Road & Track Magazine
“It’s like Mario Kart but in real life!”
— Driver, Green Zebra Adventures, Scottsdale, Arizona, USA
“When a disaster such as a flood or earthquake occurs, the Tomcars can respond and give the decision makers a remote look at the situation from a number of imagery platforms. These vehicles will allow the first responders from all of the various agencies to stay on the same page in terms of communication. When the next event like a Hurricane Katrina hits, we expect to be the first ones going.”
— Robert Bagnato, U.S. Army Chief Warrant Officer
“The Tomcar’s chain-driven axles and 13-inch suspension travel make this the UTV that can go anywhere.”
— Car & Driver 
“The terrain you can cover and the speed at which you can do it is simply amazing.”
— Courier Mail
“The harsh landscape, filled with cactus, boulder-sized rocks, ditches and washes were no match for the Tomcar. It effortlessly cruised through terrain that ATV riders dare not tread.”
— East Arizona Courier
“The unique axles allow the TM5 to maintain its 15.0-inch ground clearance under acceleration, whereas the other UTVs squat, as automobiles do. In fact, mashing the throttle from a standstill causes the TM5 to rise up like a powerboat. This is felt by the driver but is even more noticeable to onlookers.”
— Car & Driver
“The Tom Car’s durable design has made it a prefect choice for many rental companies around the world.”
“ATVs are ‘go anywhere’ fun, but they can be dangerous. SUVs are safer, but expensive, and have a limited range. TOMCARs can handle the middle ground – even if it’s rocky, muddy, and steep.”
— 944 Magazine
“Even an old off-roader like me was stunned by the Tomcar. I believed I had driven every kind of off-road vehicle on this planet… but this one really got me. It’s hard to believe, but you really don’t need 4WD.”
— John, Colorado, USA

“The Tomcar is the best mining vehicle we have come across in decades.”

— Innovative Underground Transport, Emerald, Australi

“Voted Best for the No-Compromises Adventurer.”

— Car & Driver Magazine 
“The Tomcar has not disappointed. The Tomcar has an incredibly low center of gravity. This, in combination with the high ground clearance, independent suspension, and rollover protection has left me feeling safe and comfortable in all of the operating conditions that the mine has to offer. It has no trouble powering four adults through the hills and valleys of the mine. It is a pleasure to find a machine that I actually enjoy driving throughout the mine for a 12-hour shift.”
— Johannes Sondergaard, K1 Mine Engineer, Potash Mine, Canada

“After spending a good 20 minutes ripping through an abandoned quarry at angles and degrees I would not have believed possible, I will include the Tomcar in my list of ultimate automotive experiences”

— Man Space Magazine

“Your eyes and mind continually trick you into instinctively preparing yourself for what you expect will be an uncomfortable impact or suspension rebound as you approach a washout, dip or boulder by making you stiffen up and grab onto something for support, but once you get familiar with how well the Tomcar’s suspension has been engineered, you soon relax and actually relish the opportunity to tackle the most difficult terrain.”

— Russell Purcell, Canadian Driver Magazine 

“The Tomcar was specifically designed to fit into a Sea Knight, Chinook or Sea Dragon helicopter, along with two other units to be strategically dropped into battle.”

— All-Terrain Magazine 

“I was amazed at the climbing ability; this two-wheel drive vehicle climbed the hill like a mountain goat.”


“We recently had the opportunity to demo TOMCAR’S TM-2 during McMillan Group International’s Intermediate Precision Rifle Course which was presented and instructed by Armageddon Tactical Solutions. I must say this was one of the best experiences I have had dealing with a vendor. The customer service was topnotch and the TM-2 was remarkable. We gave this beast everything we had and it ran flawlessly over unforgiving terrain for 10 days with ZERO complications. When TOMCAR tells it’s “designed to be safe, rugged, and extremely dependable,”  they are not kidding. I will also second their “no prior experience needed.”

— Armageddon Tactical Solutions

“These Tomcars can handle the desert better than anything I’ve driven before. This was an awesome experience.”

— Jenny C. | User review, Sonoran Desert Tomcar Tours 

“I was almost immediately impressed, the Tomcar absorbed the bumps with such ease that the passengers remain fresh at the end of the day, not bruised, abused, and tense like the poor saps faced with extended seat time in a typical side-by-side UTV.”

— Russell Purcell, 

“The Tomcar itself is truly outstanding and exhibits capabilities for off-road performance like no other I have experienced in thirty years in the motor industry.”

— John Conomos AO, Ex-Emeritus Chairman of Toyota Australia 

“The Tomcar will enable the delivery of vital equipment to front line troops. It is designed specifically for rugged, desert conditions – which means it is well-matched to the operational environment in Afghanistan. It will be an added capability for troops at Forward Operating Bases in Afghanistan.”

— Dr. A. Tyler, Ministry of Defence, United Kingdom

“ATACSOL had first time ATV/UTV drivers drifting around corners with PVS-15’s night vision goggles in the pitch black like they were playing a video game. The TM-2 provided the students and instructors with the confidence, maneuverability, and control to safely negotiate every obstacle the terrain gave us. After you spend a couple of minutes driving the TM-2, you can easily understand why TOMCARS have been in active deployment in Israel over the last 30 years and why U.S. Customs, Border Patrol and other government agencies use them.”

— Armageddon Tactical Solutions

“While side hilling, the Tomcar grips terrain like a spider climbing a wall.”

— ATV Magazine 

“We’ve been trying to destroy it, and we can’t.”

— Don, Reddington Land & Cattle  

“… Average drivers can drive Tomcars offroad, but the beauty of the car for the enthusiast is that there are depths of capability to explore and enjoy, and in my day behind the wheel I felt I was still learning what the car can truly achieve – and that’s a recipe for a true driving enthusiast’s machine.”

— Robert Pepper, Editor, Practical Motoring 4×4 

“Regarding safety, payload, cost of ownership, life of type, quality and mobility, I can assure you that the Tomcar vehicle … is totally compelling. Thirty years in the military, and I was speechless when I first went out in the Tomcar … just like everyone else who goes out in it.”

— Martin Neveu, Ex-Military, Specialist Vehicle Advisor 

“Voted Best for the No-Compromises Adventurer” 

— Car & Driver Magazine 

“Off-road vehicles. They were developed after having very hard times throwing Jeeps from the plane and having them crash down and not be usable in combat. The solution was Tomcars that are virtually indestructible. ”

— Lindsey Granger, “Three Military Inventions that Went Mainstream” broadcast on “The List” 

“From a first-hand experience, I have to give the suspension a 10 out of 10. The Tomcar tamed the wild desert gravel, thus transforming what could have been a jarring chiropractic disaster into a smooth dance thru the cacti.” 

— Kevin Crank, All 

“The Tomcar TM5 looks ready for anything…. Is this the toughest UTV around?”

— Lucas Cooney,

“Tomcar’s vehicles, both electric and gas-powered, have provided us with an unparalleled stable and durable platform to mount multi-million-dollar camera equipment, all while keeping out operators and the technology safe. In addition to reducing noise, Tomcar’s electrical vehicles allow us to continue shooting inside the soundstage, where a gas-powered vehicle is forbidden, saving valuable time during costly productions.” 

— Scott Howell, CEO, Cinemoves 

“Tomcar’s electrical vehicle was initially developed for military use to create a ‘stealth’ platform with zero thermal footprint. You can order yours in electric, gas or diesel.”

— Doug Jeffrey, World of Firepower Magazine

“Undoubtedly this 2WD buggy represents a bizarre rival to the long-proven abilities of the traditional 4×4, but get behind the wheel and you’ll find an off-road performance like nothing else on earth; it might involve a lot of airborne antics and hysterical laughter, but that’s all part of the fun.” 

— Steve Taylor, Total Off-Road

“All of the vehicle’s parts are readily accessible and easy to repair and replace in the field. The major components of the vehicle are symmetrical and interchangeable, reducing the necessary stock on hand, streamlining repairs and simplifying maintenance. Tomcars are also known to be extremely tough–boasting strongest vehicle in its class, with a fully welded steel safety cell that is integral to the frame, not just bolted in place. This level of structural integrity and safety is simply unmatched by any other utility vehicle on the market today. And it is this commitment to quality that really sets Tomcar apart from the competition.” 

— Jason Giacchino, ATV Connection 

“…We think you’ll get a lot of bang for your buck with the Tomcar, as well as a long service life. It continues to see action in combat theaters rigged up for everything from an unmanned ground vehicle to a troop and supply transport. If NATO, the British Army, and Israeli Army see fit to add it to their arsenal, we think you’ll be plenty satisfied with how well it performs in rough conditions, whether it’s as a rugged commercial vehicle or a fun off-roader for vacations.”

— John Schwartze, Recoil Magazine 

“Tomcar was created to make the inaccessible…accessible. Because serious adventure should not be the private domain of the rich or the specially trained, Tomcar provides the vehicle that can take anyone just about anywhere on earth and then bring them back safely. Tomcar is the product of 33 years of building high-performance vehicles for military and industrial clients who demanded affordability, reliability, and, above all, safety.”

— Green Zebra Adventures

“One of its most unique features is its frame. This is no bolt-together Erector Set deal. Over 300 pieces have been seamlessly welded together. Several different grades of steel are used throughout the frame’s construction for increased durability at stress points. Lighter varieties are used in other areas to keep the overall weight down and maintain a low center of gravity for balance. The side steps that extend beyond the width of the cab also serve to protect occupants during a rollover.”

— John Schwartze, Recoil Magazine 

“Unlike mass market ATVs and UTVs, the Tomcar is designed and built to a professional grade standard, with a design that uses the highest quality materials and components. From its immensely strong, fully-welded steel tube chassis to its heavy-duty, four-wheel independent suspension and low center of gravity, the Tomcar is designed to be safe, rugged, and extremely dependable. Simply put, it is the perfect vehicle to experience nature’s beauty and have a BLAST at the same time.” 

— Green Zebra Adventures 
“The Tomcar is the best mining vehicle we have come across in decades.”
— Innovative Underground Transport, Emerald, Australia

“Tomcar’s supple, long-travel suspension and light weight…. The softly-sprung, nimble, rear-engined Tomcar is a vehicle unlike anything else you’re likely to steer.”

— Robert Pepper, Practical Motoring

“Tomcar vehicles keep the driver, passenger and vehicle safe with the fully welded high-grade steel frame, bucket seats with four-point harnesses and a safety glass windshield, making the entire cab safe and strong.” 


“Unique. Unmatched. Extraordinary. Tomcar has all these qualities and many more. From its origins as a fast, tough, off-road military vehicle, the Tomcar has evolved into an ultra-functional, durable, and versatile machine fit for commercial and private use in the most demanding conditions.”

— Green Zebra Adventures

“The Tomcar is the ultimate bug out vehicle.” 

— Ben Phillippi,

“Tools of the trade: Rampage crew rolls with Tomcar.” 

— Redbull Rampage course-building crew

“Bridging the gap between a quad bike and traditional 4×4, the vehicle may only be two-wheel drive but still succeeds in delivering sensational off-road kicks.”

— Steve Taylor, Total Off-Road

“One of the greatest attributes of the Tomcar is that its numerous interchangeable parts can be repaired on-site with hand tools. These machines are crazy fast, agile and so dependable that they are used in potash mines. Given those credentials, a mule deer hunt should be no big deal.” 

— Peter B. Mathiesen, Outdoor Life

“Tough, strong and agile as a klipspringer, the Tomcar is a remarkable vehicle…. It had to be simple to drive, durable enough to stand up to the most brutal environment, and simple to maintain and repair in the field. It met all these challenges—and more. Now hand-built in the US, it is the only commercial and recreational vehicle of its type engineered to military specifications.” 

— Colin Morisio Borges, Farmer’s Weekly
