Donald Trump’s New Cadillac Presidential Limo Finally Enters Service45
Donald Trump’s own Cadillac Presidential Limo has entered service at long last, after a series of false starts and delays kept pushing the vehicle’s start-of-service date back. The car, also known as “Cadillac One” or “The Beast 2.0”, was originally supposed to be ready in time for President Trump’s inauguration in 2017, but obviously, it wasn’t ready.
President Donald Trump rode through New York City recently in the new Cadillac Presidential Limo ahead of the United Nations General Assembly. General Motors was awarded nearly $16 million in construction contracts back in 2013 to deliver the new plush armored ride, and the vehicle that came out of the program is a long, sleek stretch limousine with a sedan profile like that on the production 2019 Cadillac CT6, underpinned by a ladder frame borrowed from GM’s medium-duty work trucks.

Cadillac has been the automotive brand of choice to transport the President of the United States since the 1980s, although Presidential Limousines like the one just pressed into service are quite unlike the production Cadillacs available to ordinary consumers. The Secret Service keeps specific details about each new Cadillac One limo secret, but the last one, which was rolled out in 2009, featured safety precautions like reinforced doors, bulletproof windows, Kevlar-reinforced run-flat tires, Halon fire-suppression system, an advanced air-filtration system (to safeguard against biological attack), and a trunk full of weapons and protective gear.
It even featured equipment to keep the car safe from the effects of an EMP (Electromagnetic Pulse) blast, and an onboard oxygen supply to defend against airborne chemical agents.
While you can’t buy the new Cadillac Presidential Limo yourself at your local Cadillac dealer, there is at least one Cadillac One replica in existence, based on a 1999 Cadillac DeVille, which sold for a not-unreasonable $45,650 at RM Sotheby’s Autumn Auction in Auburn.

The Escalade’s headlights fit a lot better this time around, The new grille too.
I understand function is helluva lot more important than form in this situation, but they could’ve done better with the side profile.
Well there’s only so much the stylist can do with the car. If the designers wanted to add a crease to the sheet metal to make it look slightly better, it would likely fail to meet dozens of ballistics and explosives protocols for physical deformation and performance.
Great to see President Trump’s shiny new limousine from GM. Befitting the most powerful man in the world. Thank God the witch will never ride in it…EVER!
Do you mean Delaware’s witch Christine O’Donnell? She’s famous for standing for election asa Republican, and saying “I’m not a witch! I only dabbled, I didn’t join a Coven so that means I’m not a witch!” That’s the witch you mean, right?
Did you mean the most useless man..
So unfortunate that it has to transport a lying sack of sh!t.
Bert… GM should give you a new Z-R1! for that comment…..he is a f…kin JACKASS!!!
I just consider it my patriotic duty. ???
I got some beechnut to spit in his eye. He wouldn’t understand the sting.
Sore loser alert!
So where is that impeachment you were yapping about? Ol’ Robbie Mueller has been blowing millions of American tax payer money and has nothing… collusion, eh?
Putin is a buddy of your president also, he hoped that Russia would to try and find the 30,000 deleted emails during his presidential campaign, and still to this day nothing new to talk about on that matter.
He’s our President.
That’s so unfortunate and SAD. World leaders laughed and mocked him today at the UN when he started doing his Trump rally BS. So inappropriate and gauche. And once again, he sucked-up to Russia and his boss.
Emmanuel Macron slammed him and ripped him to pieces like the little b!tch that he is. He encouraged the world not to do any trade deals with the US. The German representatives laughed at his without restraint. Absolutely no respect and a complete embarrassment. What a complete D!CK!
Where is the ongoing investigation towards Hillary Clinton’s emails that Congressman Jason Chaffetz himself told Hillary during the presidents Inogaration, that it would continue on despite the fact that he has resigned at this pount, and still to this day nothing new is coming to the surface on that issue.
Which will never amount to anything…no wonder you keep losing.
Thank God for President Trump. Everyday is a good day unless you are a fanatical left-wing nutjob.
Not surprisingly, morally corrupt morons support morons. Keep reading that Russian propaganda. Putin is laughing every day at the stupidity of a portion of the American population. THE DEPLORABLES-coming to a theatre near you. Lol
The down votes are doubling the up votes, proving you are not in the majority and just a sorry loser.
Trump Derangement Syndrome much?
Qmap.pub for all the latest on the left-wing corruption in America.
At the end of the day, a corrupt 40-year career female government bureaucrat who schemed and scammed billions from Americans and almost destroyed the country LOST to a White, Christian businessMAN who never even ran for any public office, had 1/5th the campaign budget of said female, and all the mainstream media against him/ scheming with said female….96%% chance of winning, eh? 😉
No wonder the left-winger morons are losing it. Need to go seek psychological help for that Trump Derangement Syndrome, little ones. Trump is going to be President until 2024 after all…
Reality…time to face it.
Christian you say..You sick puppy. Russia is the one that put Trump..
Surely, you must mean atheist conman????? Boy, has he really fooled you!! I bet you still think he gives a damn about poor people. Prior to being president, he called poor people “LOSERS”.
Where are the white wall tires? It’s really an M1 Abrams Battle Tank in sheeps clothing. See the size of the blast proof doors?
White walls? In THIS century? Really? On a vehicle intended to be used by a head of state, and serve as the literal flagship of the entire nation that was behind it?
I mean if you don’t want the car to look diplomatic or statesman like with white wall tires, you might as go all out and have the car painted pink to match.
f it was up to you know who, it would look quite different…
Yeah boieee! The God Emperor riding in style!!!
Trump may have General Motors build him a beast to ride for when he leaves office.
He won’t need one where he’s going. lol
Sore loser alert! Sore loser alert!
Coming from a guy who actually believed Hitlery had a “96% chance of winning”…
Proof that stupid people hate President Trump. I am okay with that.
Future Trump Tweet.
“I want to thank Cadillac for Making America Great Again. This is the finest limo around and Fake News CNN won’t cover it. We have the best Cadillacs, don’t we folks?”
Sounds more like a conman promoting cheap real estate. Lol
So its a beast well that’s ok there will be a even bigger beast in side …….
Its a beautiful car but it very sad that they even let Trump inside to destroy it…
This car looks a lot better profile wise compared to the previous incarnation and its Frankensteinesque look. I just wish they’d paint these cars in a color other than black. For example using the dark midnight blue of Kennedy’s 61continental.
oops …forgot to bulletproof this one. Oh well.
