I like thinking big. If you’re going to be thinking anything,
you might as well think big.– Donald Trump
President Trump’s limo—which kept the former administration’s nickname, “The Beast”—was added to the presidential fleet at the end of September.
After much speculation about what the final product would look like, we now have a few details about the new 2018 Cadillac.
Much information about the vehicle is still kept tightly under wraps. Cadillac spokesperson Andrew Lipman even stated, “We cannot comment on this.”

Just before the U.N. General Assembly, the world took it’s first look at the newest presidential vehicle. The Beast was seen driving President Trump around his hometown of New York City.
The U.S. Secret Service even tweeted out a photo of The Beast (and it’s double) with the caption, “The Secret Service is ready to roll into #UNGA 2018!”
Presidential Limo Facts:
Cadillac has produced presidential limos since the 1980s.
Before then, the president rode in a Lincoln Continental.
The modern presidential fleet is black, but John F. Kennedy’s limo was a dark blue.
What’s In Trump’s Limo?
Whether the president is out for business travel or on vacation, the office comes with access to some pretty impressive limousine cars. There’s no need to make a limo reservation because he has his own personal fleet.
Meet The Beast:
• 20,000 lbs of pure muscle
• Built by: General Motors as part of a $15.8 million dollar, two-phase vehicle production contract spanning three years, from 2014-2017
• Price tag: $1.5 million
• Looks like: The stretch limousine version of a Cadillac XT6 sedan
• Classic, sleek black exterior
• Flags flying: The Beast flies two flags on its hood, one American flag and the other with the presidential seal.
While it may look like a standard corporate travel or VIP limousine, Trump’s limo is anything but normal. With features for comfort, convenience, and safety, The Beast is a top of the line limo transportation machine.
