This Hennessey Escalade is a 675HP, Seven Seat Rocket Ship
They may have big V8s under the hood, but most family-hauling, full-size, urban cruising SUVs aren’t all that fast. In fact, the potent V8 is rather a matter of necessity. But not all sport utilities are created equal… this being one of them. Hailing from 2011, this is a Cadillac Escalade ESV that was shipped out to the Texas tuners at Hennessey Performance. Aside from some subtle badging on the doors and rear tailgate, you wouldn’t immediately know its pedigree. But prod the throttle and this 675-horsepower behemoth comes alive like you wouldn’t believe. It's also for sale... RELATED: See More Photos of this 2011 Hennessey Cadillac Escalade ESV
That immediacy to go, go, go comes courtesy of a 1.9-liter Hennessey supercharger setup, which tacks on high flow cylinder heads, an engine management tune, more aggressive camshaft, and exhales through a stainless steel exhaust system. In original form, the Escalade musters a sizable 403 horsepower at 5,700 rpm. The Hennessey kit and further upgrades now bring that total to a massive 675-horsepower at a lower 5,250 rpm. Vroom, vroom.
And you certainly couldn’t call the accoutrements spartan. The Escalade ESV Platinum comes equipped with dark brown leather and tan stitched seats, front seat infotainment, rear seat DVD players in the headrests, a set of second row captain’s chairs, and room for the rest of the family in the third row. It’s always better to experience horsepowers with the whole family.
