President Trump is currently making do with the previous administration’s Cadillac limousine, or Cadillac One. However, number 45 will be treated to a brand new presidential limo later this year, and we have our best look at it in new spy photos.
Spied rolling around GM proving grounds, the Beast 2.0 will continue to ride on a General Motors medium-duty truck platform, but be skinned as a Cadillac. Specifically, the styling looks akin to a Cadillac CT6 and Escalade. In fact, it’s actually just as long as an Escalade. Expect it to look much more modern and elegant than the current Cadillac DTS inspired limo in use right now.
Unlike most cars we report on, we’ll likely never know all the features packed into Cadillac One for the sake of national security. But, we do know the current presidential features reinforced doors, extra thick and bullet proof windows, technology to prevent the effects of an EMP blast and an air filtration system in the event of a biological attack.
All of that comes at a price, though. The original report states the new limo cost taxpayers around $1.5 million to develop and engineer.
