Cadillac Escalade reportedly getting 200-hp bump from supercharger


Recommended Posts

Cadillac is preparing to supercharge the Escalade, according to a recent report. The body-on-frame General Motors SUVs that it shares its basic underpinnings with are allegedly in line to receive a big increase in power, too.

I think this is good news overall, and may pave the way to recognizing an Escalade-V market.

Well, they've already put that engine in the CTS-V, Camaro ZL1, and the Corvette ZR1; shouldn't be too much of a stretch (but it sure will make a 'mean' Escalade).

Not exactly the same -- this is a bolt-on supercharger rather than a complete designed-with-supercharger package.  Should be a nice power adder regardless, but a dealer add-on rather than factory installation.

Thanks for the clarification Bruce (I didn't read the article close enough).  A little perplexing; if they wanted to add a blown 6.2, they would just shoe-horn what they've already got in the parts bin.
