Bulletproof Infiniti QX-56 by International Armoring Corporation

These cars use light armor, but are more robust

These armoured vehicles are becoming common in West Africa (like Nigeria) and are fantastic for holding the additional weight of the armour while still providing a luxury experience for  the end user. We especially enjoyed armoring the latest bulletproof Infiniti QX-56.

Here is the review from Edmunds:

Exemplifying the “bigger is better” school of thought, the Infiniti QX56 is a worthy competitor among full-size luxury SUVs. Through the course of two generations, the QX56 benefited from a powerful V8 engine and above-average towing capabilities. Off-road prowess, on the other hand, was never a primary concern, as the QX56 was intended more for urban recreation or pulling a boat to the river. For scenarios such as those, the QX56 managed quite well, with a comfortable cabin and myriad high-tech features.

A 5.6-liter V8 with 400 horsepower and 413 pound-feet of torque powers the QX56. A seven-speed automatic is the only transmission offered and features manual shift control with rev-matched downshifts. Rear-wheel drive is standard, with four-wheel drive optional. Properly equipped, the QX can tow an impressive 8,500 pounds and is aided by a tow/haul mode for the transmission as well as an automatic-leveling rear suspension.

In reviews, we found this QX56 to be a pretty impressive luxury SUV, with the large collection of features and potent V8 being the main draws. Downsides include cramped third-row seating and a ride quality that’s not as smooth as what’s provided by competing models.

We strongly recommend Infiniti models for armouring and have several available for a test drive around the world. Call +801-393-1075 to learn more about armored Infiniti models.
