BECKER GM SUV CHASSIS SELECTIONS

Please know that for armoring, we use the Chevrolet 1 ton 3500 HD Suburban chassis as our base platform due to its superior strength and weight handling capacity. When completed, we are able to change the exterior to match the Cadillac Escalade ESV or GMC Yukon Denali XL using all factory GM parts.

GM 1 TON CHEVROLET SUBURBAN (11,000 LB GVWR)

We use this 1 ton Suburban chassis because all other GM SUVs are built for light duty using a 1500 chassis. This light duty chassis has a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating of 7,400 lbs, which is not suitable for handling the added weight of B6 level armor reliably or safely. The engine, suspension and drive train, as well as the frame of the factory light duty SUVs are all much weaker than those of the 1 ton Suburban. Reinforcing the light duty GM SUV is not a technically sound approach for optimum performance and will require substantially greater service needs.

FACTORY CADILLAC ESCALADE ESV AND GMC YUKON DENALI XL (7,400 LB GVWR)

The 1 ton Suburban 3500 HD has a GVWR of 11,000 lbs, safely allowing for greater armor protection. This vehicle meets US Government specifications, having very good reliability, low maintenance, high maneuverability and excellent ride quality. The engine can also be supercharged for greater maneuverability in emergency situations.

(BLUE = FACTORY CADILLAC ESCALADE ESV OR GMC YUKON DENALI XL)


For the highest levels of armor protection, even the 3500 Suburban chassis is not strong enough. For B7 and VR9 / STANAG II levels, we convert the entire chassis to that of a Silverado 3500 HD. This chassis provides a GVW of 14,500 lbs, which is necessary to safely carry the load of a vehicle with this level of armor. In addition, this chassis has a superior powertrain. With a 6.6L Diesel engine, this vehicle produces 397 horsepower and 765 ft-lbs of torque, ensuring escapeability in virtually any situation. The suspension components, transmission, axles, brakes and cooling systems are all designed by the factory to handle this added weight.
