AddArmor Adds Armour to Cadillac XT6

Get your safe on with an up-armoured, bullet-resistant Cadillac crossover

  • Adds bullet protection to lighter, less imposing crossovers

  • Mobile safe room starting from the mid-30 grand mark

 


What does it take to turn your crossover into an armoured vehicle? The anti-intrusion experts at AddArmor can turn even a more conventional crossover like the Cadillac XT6 into a mobile safe room.

The first armoured vehicles that pop into your mind are probably behemoths like the trucks bank couriers use, or full-on military vehicles, or maybe even head of state limousines like The Beast used by the President of the United States. But for many who face risks every day but want their protection on the discreet side, more conventional vehicles can be armoured too.

AddArmor showed the Robb Report its Anti-Intrusion Package XT6. It’s fitted with AddArmor’s custom-fit ballistic panels inside the doors and hatches that provide interior protection with minimal weight increase. AddArmor says they’re 60 percent lighter and 10 times stronger than ballistic steel, ao combined with the bullet-resistant glass the XT6 weighs just 380 lbs (173 kg) more than the factory version of the crossover.

That lets the stock 3.6L V6 move the vehicle quickly enough (though it’s certainly not a rocketship) to get out of whatever situation it finds itself in. The B4 protection package is designed to stop common handgun rounds including 9mm, and up to .44 Magnum. Higher levels of protection are available to stop rifle and even armour piercing rounds.

We won’t ask why you need the protection (though you might need to get a permit depending on where you live), but if you need it it’s surprisingly affordable. Just $28,000 (CAD 37,500) for the standard Anti-Intrusion Package, which they can add to nearly any vehicle. Not a bad deal to tell people (or maybe not tell people) you have an armoured car. Just remember, no more drive-thrus.
