Based on the Ford Ranger SUV (heavily modified), the VT4 is a 4x4, non-armored, light and versatile vehicle, designed for command post and liaison missions. It can accommodate 5 soldiers or 4 FELIN system-equipped operators. With its payload of up to 900kg, it is designed for homeland operations and for foreign operations in low-threat regions. The VT4 Standard 2 integrates 350 new references and offers several new evolutions compared to Standard 1: integration of modern communication and positioning systems, extra racks, towing equipment, and blackout lights. The VT4 Standard 2 is also designed to be air-transportable, in order to grant it extra tactical capabilities.

In 2018, the first 500 Standard 1 VT4s were delivered to the French Army. 3,900 Arquus VT4s will equip the armed forces by 2025, replacing the old Peugeot P4 vehicle.
