Trump's new presidential limousine set to debut this summer

What is Trump's new presidential limousine set to debut this summer?

When Obama first became president back in 2009, he was presented with a brand new transport vehicle, which he described as “a Caddy, basically on a tank frame.”  So when President Trump arrived at the White House, it was quite a surprise that he did not receive a newer, upgraded fleet, but simply took over the keys to the previous version.  Turns out, Trump's “Beast” (affectionately dubbed as such by the Secret Service) was just not quite ready.  It is now so close to completion that pictures of the nearly finished product have been captured and leaked, and it is tentatively set to make its first official appearance this coming summer.

The vehicle's details AND exterior (for now) are a closely guarded national secret, but the former model was designed to withstand explosive, ballistic, and chemical weapon attacks, so it stands to reason that the newer model will do the same and more.  The photos of the prototypes currently floating around are greatly obscured by black and white camouflage, but it appears the new limousine has styling elements similar to the Cadillac flagship CT6 sedan.  The current CT6 boasts a semi-autonomous Super Cruise system that allows for hands-free driving.  However, despite the stylistic similarities, the president's new ride will NOT have the same self-driving capabilities because it will always be driven by a highly-trained agent.

Cadillac has been the creator of all presidential limousines since 1993 and has yet to face any competition for this iconic contract.  The president's limo accounts for one of the dozen or so vehicles that General Motors is set to create under their $15.8 million contract.  According to Cadillac president, Johann de Nysschen, “We've completed our task and we've handed over the vehicle to the customer.”  So at this point, the president's vehicle, along with the others, is officially in the possession of the United States Secret Service, being tested and prepared for the great unveiling.  A spokeswoman for the Secret Service went on record to say that, “the program to build and deploy the next generation of Presidential limousines is on track and on schedule — both in terms of vendor production and internal Secret Service post production requirements. The public can expect to see the new vehicles put into operational use late summer of this year.”

Ironically enough, this news just barely preceded the announcement made by Russia's Industry and Trade Minister, Denis Manturov, that president Vladimir Putin is set to receive a new fleet of vehicles as well, and his may be ready in as soon as a few weeks, possibly even in time for Putin's May 7th inauguration.  Unlike Trump's highly specialized limousine of which only a dozen will be made under the GM contract, Putin's car will be one of thousands of Russian-made vehicles developed to eventually replace imports currently utilized by the nation's government officials.  This is all part of a state-run project called “Kortezh” created back in 2012 to show that Russia is capable of domestically producing automobiles with the highest level of quality, security, reliability, and design.  Although officials have been utilizing domestically produced cars like ZIL-41047 for official state purposes, since 1991, the vast majority of government in Russia have been imported from Germany.  Moscow considers this project as a point of pride in which they can showcase what they are capable of creating domestically, and plans to offer up the rest of these new fleet vehicles next year for purchase.

If the Russian announcement is accurate, we can expect to see Putin in his new vehicle before Trump is able to unveil his.  This is not necessarily politically important, but can absolutely be seen as a bragging point for whichever administration is first.  Regardless of who wins this “presidential car war,” as auto enthusiasts, here at A1 Auto Transport, we cannot wait to see the new fleets in action and will be following the story closely in preparation for the big reveal.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.
★★★★★

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And my choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.
★★★★★

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!
★★★★★

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
