President Donald Trump has been in the oval office for more than a year but continues to use the same presidential limousine fleet that Barack Obama had from the moment of his Inauguration Day in 2009.
However, Fox News has been told that the U.S. Secret Service has taken delivery of Trump’s new limousine and that it will be revealed in the near future.
“We’ve completed our task and we’ve handed over the vehicle to the customer,” former Cadillac president Johan de Nysschen confirmed.
A spokeswoman from the U.S. Secret Service said that production of the vehicle is indeed complete.
“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.”
Cadillac has made every presidential limo since 1993
President Trump’s limousine has been spied testing on numerous occasions throughout the past 12 months. The vehicle will be one of roughly a dozen vehicles built by General Motors under a $15.8 million contract it has with the Secret Service.
As you’d imagine, details about the vehicle remain a closely guarded secret. What we know is that the exterior of the presidential limousine will somewhat resemble the Cadillac CT6 and that it will be designed to withstand ballistic, explosive, and chemical weapons attacks.
