You know that the company always says that “power is never enough”.
The Cadillac Escalade goes up to 650 CV thanks to Hennessey. You already know that the company always says that “power is never enough”, and they fulfill it with each model they prepare. General Motors has installed the engine of a Corvette C7 ZR1 in the Cadillac Escalade, and Hennessey has chosen an earthier Escalade and mounted a huge supercharger for those looking for something similar.
In this way, the company modifies certain elements of the 6.2-liter LS V8 of the Cadillac Escalade, which develops about 420 hp and 625 Nm of torque as standard. To modify its personality, it installs stainless steel exhausts, reinforces the crankshaft and changes the control unit that controls the engine. In addition, it mounts a 2.9-liter supercharger and an intercooler to control the temperature. What a beast!
Thus we are left with a heart of 650 horsepower and 893 Nm of torque, energy that is transmitted to all four wheels through the 10-speed automatic transmission. Of course, there are no changes in the suspension or other sections, only involving the mechanics. So now you know, don’t try to go fast with it in a section of curves.
The preparation amounts to about $28,000, to which the Cadillac would have to be added, of course. Hennessey gives us a guarantee of 3 years or about 58,000 km. For its part, the supercharger is compatible with other General Motors group vehicles, such as the Silverado ZR2/GMC Sierra AT4X or the Chevy Tahoe. Also the Suburban.
