Growler Manufacturing and Engineering, formerly American Growler, Inc., is an automotive manufacturing firm producing light tactical vehicles, originally based in Ocala, Florida, then in Robbins, North Carolina, and now in the HUBZone in Star, North Carolina. For over ten years, it has built a line of Light Utility Vehicles partly derived from drivetrains from M151 Jeeps.[1] Versions range from $7,000 in price kit form, a $15,500 tactical dune buggy, and a $33,000 version sold to the Dominican Republic's military.


Growler Manufacturing and Engineering started as Utility Vehicles Inc. in 1999[2] who designed of new frames and bodies and remanufactured drive trains from military vehicles, primarily M151 jeeps, purchased through surplus sales.

Growler's most expensive model at over $100,000 each, is the Growler Light Strike vehicle.[3] It was specially designed to be transported in the small cargo hold of the V-22 Osprey tilt-rotor aircraft along with the Expeditionary Fire Support System towed mortar.[4]

The V-22 cargo compartment is five feet wide, five feet tall and less than 17 feet in length. In 2005, the Marines planned to buy 400 of the vehicles in a contract that combined with the mortar system was expected to total $296 million.
