DECATUR, Ind.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--REV Group (NYSE: REVG), a $2.4 billion manufacturer of industry-leading specialty vehicle brands and leading provider of parts and services, today announced the Recreation Group is launching a new Class B offering in its legacy RV brand line-up, introducing its first-ever RV Class B diesel motorhome — the all-new 2018 American Patriot. The epitome of modern styling, the Patriot is the perfect addition to American Coach’s luxury motor coach family, renowned for combining innovation and craftsmanship.
Available in the Patriot and the Patriot Cruiser, these diesel touring coaches deliver sleek styling and intuitive features in five floorplans. The Patriot delivers a long list of enviable comforts in a nimble luxury van conversion, while the Patriot Cruiser is ideal for elite travel among business class passengers with up to six bucket seats. The American Patriot is built on a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter chassis and is brimming with exclusive comfort, like Ultraleather™ seating, elegant dark wood detail, a 2,000-watt inverter, 11,000-BTU roof air and more.
“We saw a need to build a coach that would answer the demand of the market’s most sophisticated travelers. With our recent acquisition of Midwest Automotive Designs and now the addition of the American Patriot to the REV RV Group line of luxury Class B RVs, we are further strengthening our position to satisfy the needs of this growing market,” said Jim Jacobs, REV Recreation Group President. “The American Patriot answers that demand.”
“The American Patriot motorhome definitely fits the American Coach mold. Inside and out, it embodies ‘the heart of luxury,’ while its nimble size captures ‘the soul of freedom’,” added Lenny Razo, Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “You’re not going to find a motor coach that better captures America’s pioneering spirit and desire for adventure, yet still offers the quality and luxury American Coach owners have come to expect.”
The American Patriot will be available at American Coach dealers this summer.
