Bulletproof Chevrolet Suburban

The United States Diplomatic Security Service (DSS) contracted GM Defense LLC, a subsidiary of General Motors, to create armored Suburban-based cars back in 2021.

Under the terms of the $36.4 million development contract, GM Defense will produce 10 purpose-built Suburbans over the course of the next two years, at a cost of about $3.6 million each vehicle.

In two stages, starting in the spring of next year, GM Defense will supply the cars to The DSS, the department’s federal law enforcement and security division.
