  • Honda CRV, Cadillac Escalade, Range Rover and Jeep Cherokee Limited are some of its ‘ships’

The trucks of “Los Chapitos” or of the sons of the former leader of the Sinaloa Cartel, Joaquín Guzmán Loera, are tough SUVs to move around in any terrain when things get difficult.

After the fall of Joaquín Guzmán Loera known as “El Chapo”, his heirs Jesús Alfredo, Iván Archivaldo and Ovidio Guzmán were in command of the operations, assuming a role within the organization, but they also get their millionaire treats as did their father long ago.

One of the many privileges that the children of “El Chapo” enjoy is traveling in ostentatious vans that provide speed and safety above all else.

Magazine Infobae has revealed “Los Chapitos” vans very similar to those used by his mentor Joaquín Guzmán before he was behind bars and sentenced to life in prison in the United States for money laundering, use of firearms and drug trafficking.

Honda CRV-2015: a tremendous SUV

Among the trucks from “Los Chapitos” stands out the Honda CRV, whose model corresponds to the year 2015 and is the best-selling SUV during this time.

This jewel on four wheels was conceived under the power of a diesel engine that makes it more powerful and high-performance.

Likewise, the engine of the Honda CRV-2015 is backed with four 1.6-liter cylinders corresponding to the series ‘Honda Earth Dreams Technology’. Similarly, it exerts a power of 160 horsepower and a torque of 350 ‘newtons / meter’.

The benefits of this ostentatious ‘truck’ go further, as Honda details that its masterpiece works with two transmissions: a six-speed manual and a 9-speed automatic.

2016 Cadillac Escalade: far superior

However, the Honda CRV-2015 is not the most striking among the “Los Chapitos” trucks, as they also use the off-road vehicle: the 2016 Cadillac Escalade, which offers comfort, elegance and above all power on the road.

Finding out more about this SUV, Cadillac had said that it travels with the force that drives the 6.2-liter V8 engine, processing 420 horsepower.

The 2016 Cadillac Escalade has an 8-speed automatic transmission and can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 6.1 seconds, a far greater advantage for “Los Chapitos” when it comes to moving in such a large unit weighing 6 thousand pounds.

Range Rover 2016: another acquisition of “Los Chapitos”

Without a doubt, “Los Chapitos” do know how to have a good time in their luxury SUVs and even more so when they go inside a 2016 Range Rover.

This 5 meter long and 1.84 high off-road vehicle has the well-marked stamp of one of the “Los Chapitos” trucks in each of the engine parts, literally speaking.

The fabulous 2016 Range Rover has two totally different diesel engine models: a 3.0-liter V6 with 275 horsepower and the other composed of a 4.4-liter V8 applying 339 horsepower.

Jeep Cherokee Limited: another powerful possession

This 4-by-2 pickup is powered by a MultiAir brand 4-cylinder engine, through which it can develop superior power of 184 horsepower and 171 lb-ft of torque.

The brothers Jesús Alfredo, Iván Archivaldo and Ovidio Guzmán are surely attracted to this type of bodywork, because in addition to its powerful engine, it is spacious, comfortable and, above all, versatile.

The Jeep Cherokee Limited has a very efficient injection system that makes it a bit noisy and soft to the touch.

The cars of “Los Chapitos” have an investment of approximately 338 thousand dollars, not counting the rest that is missing and the exclusive collection of Joaquín Guzmán Loera, which he surely misses from prison.

One of the curiosities of these acquisitions is that all the ‘trucks’ where “Los Chapitos” move are white.

And so he showed in his operation carried out by the State Police of Jalisco, Mexico, where they guarded the car in which Jesús Alfredo Guzmán Salazar, son of “El Chapo” was traveling, after being kidnapped on August 17, 2016.
