This Cadillac Escalade is GRENADE and bulletproof

This is a grenade and bulletproof Cadillac Escalade made by Inkas, a Canadian company that specializes in armored vehicles.

It looks like any other blacked-out Escalade on the outside but when you open the doors, you’ll find a cabin that looks unlike anything you’ve seen before.

Officially known as the ‘Chairman Edition’, Inkas fitted BR6 bulletproof body panels, which means it can withstand fire from assault rifles with 7.62 mm bullets as well as the explosion of up to two hand grenades.

In addition to that, the vehicle is equipped with night vision, optional thermal vision, a fire suppression system, and bulletproof tires.


The suspension system has also been upgraded, mostly because the vehicle is now a lot heavier than the standard model.

While it’s a bulletproof beast on the outside, the car is packed with tech and luxuries on the inside.

There’s a 360-degree camera system with park assist and the automated driver partition features a hide-away satellite TV with a 19-speaker sound system.

According to Inkas, customers can fit the interior with pretty much anything they want.

Weirdly, despite the extra weight, Inkas hasn’t modified the engine at all and that means that customers are going to have to make do with the 420-hp 6.2-liter V8 that powers the standard Escalade.

They can also opt for a 3.0-liter turbodiesel upon request.

These aren’t bad engines, but the ‘regular’ Escalade weighs 2.5 kg (5,600 lbs) and the modifications here have made it at least half a ton heavier.

The Bulletproof Cadillac Escalade is entirely customizable and that means that the price depends on how many boxes you tick when you spec it out.

But we can speculate.

The 2022 Cadillac Escalade has a starting MSRP of $77,000 while the range-topping Platinum model will set you back $101,000.

The bulletproof modifications alone are probably worth $150k, plus the inevitable huge markup.

We’re probably looking at a price tag of at least $450,000 – $500,000.
