This Rhino GX Is a Ford F-450 on Steroids



Even bulletproofing won't prevent the paparazzi from shooting at this rig.

In this clip, Charles Fleming of the Los Angeles Times shows us the features of a heavy-duty SUV called the Rhino GX.

Built by U.S. Specialty Vehicles in Rancho Cucamonga, California, it costs nearly a quarter of a million dollars with optional bulletproof body panels.


The USSV is currently accepting orders to transform a Ford F-450 Super Duty into this mighty off-roader. Engine options include a 6.7-liter turbodiesel or 6.8-liter V10, rounded out by a 20-gauge steel body, self-leveling hydraulic suspension, two extra doors, and one of two impressive power plants.

Most Rhinos are sold in China, but USSV is currently ramping up stateside sales. If $250,000 is too steep, the smaller Rhino XT, featured in the Fate of the Furious movie, costs half the price.
