The vehicle’s underbody design known as a Double V-Hull (DVH) was based on the Army’s Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicles which deflects blasts away from the vehicle and the soldiers inside.

The eight-wheeled Interim Armored Vehicle (IAV) Stryker family of vehicles include a new hull configuration, increased armor, upgraded suspension and braking systems, wider tires, blast-attenuating seats, and a height management system.
