The T27 Armored Car was a prototype armored car developed for the US Army in 1944 by the Studebaker Corporation. The T27 was an eight wheeled vehicle, with the 1st, 2nd and 4th pairs of wheels being powered. With a crew of four, the T27 was armed with two .30 caliber machine guns and a 37 mm cannon. Powered by a Cadillac gasoline 8-cylinder engine, two T27's were produced in 1944.

The T27's production was cancelled in favor of a competing design by Chevrolet, the T28 Armored Car.
