USSV Rhino GX Executive – Power & Luxury United in One Amazing Vehicle

The USSV Rhino GX Executive is simply the SUV above all SUVs. This luxury SUVs are for the über-rich and who want people to know it.

These terrifying military-look SUV beasts based on the Ford F450 truck chassis are produced in U.S. Specialty Vehicles, also known as USSV of Rancho Cucamonga, California, the company that converts ordinary pickup trucks into monster SUVs that make the old Hummer look subtle.

You see one of these in the rear-view mirror, you don’t just move over one lane, you move way over, several lanes, and maybe you exit the freeway entirely and go hide in the garage for a while to make sure it’s gone. It’s like seeing that velociraptor in “Jurassic World.” Look out the window before you leave the garage in case it’s lurking out there for you. This is not one of those benign, plant-eating dinosaurs – this is a meat-eater. At least that’s what it looks like.

Sitting on huge 38-inch tyres, the Rhino is available in three colors inside and out. Stealth Black, Tactical Green, and Desert Sand make up the exterior colors, while inside can be all black leather, or contrasting leather with black and your choice of red or tan. The USSV Rhino GX is powered by either a 6.8-litre naturally aspirated V10 or a 6.7-litre Power Stroke turbodiesel V8. All of them are fitted with four-wheel drive and a six-speed automatic.

The first is powered by a gasoline V10 making 385 hp and 405 lb-ft of torque. With a curb weight listed at 9,800 pounds for this model, that’s a weight-to-power ratio of somewhere around 25.5, which looks a little slow.

The 6.7-liter Ford Power Stroke turbo diesel V8 makes 440 hp and a wall-smashing, town-crushing, government-changing 860 lb-ft of torque, more than twice the torque of the gasoline-engined option.

>The Executive Model is nearly 19 feet long, but USSV says it only seats four to five people. The Executive Model provides passengers with a luxurious driving experience equipped with premium leather seating, built-in heat controls and foot rests.

With four or five passengers seating, guests can enjoy a first-class entertainment system complete with a partitioned 40” television and intercom system. Additional specifications include exotic wood, leather and chrome trim, a luxury center console, central armrest with individual controls, a sun roof, dual alternators, and a KVH TRAC Vision A9 Satellite Receiver.

Does a $250,000 (starting price) road beast like this make sense? Of course not. You can’t make a logical argument in favor of owning this. But since when does logic enter into any of your favorite decisions?
