And it could be yours for $68,988.
The Cadillac Escalade is a full-size luxury SUV that mingles with cars such as the Land Rover Range Rover and BMW X7. We're used to seeing this SUV being driven by celebrities and other VIPs, and modified versions usually get an upgraded interior, larger wheels, and maybe a few exterior touches, but these suburban crawlers aren't really known for being a tuning platform. We've seen some digital creations that will blow your mind, and even one that has a transplanted interior from a BMW 7 Series, but nothing comes close to what we're about to show you.
This 2017 Cadillac Escalade rides high and delivers a knockout blow thanks to some serious power under the hood, and it is now up for grabs via 360 Exotics.
This Escalade comes in the only color an Escalade should come in: pitch black. The exterior is adorned with chrome accents, but that isn't the biggest talking point by far. See, this SUV has been lifted skyward with gusto and looks more like a monster truck than a livable daily driver. The car has been jacked up via an adjustable lift kit from Cognito Motorsports and a set of fully adjustable Fox Racing shocks in the front and back.
The whole deal rolls on a set of wheels that can only be described as 'off-road pimp.' They're a set of custom 22-inch billet wheels, with 37-inch Fuel off-road gripper tires that provide some serious traction for when you have to traverse a couple of Toyota Prius' in your local Costco parking lot.
The exterior looks cool, but we're more interested in what lies beneath the hood of this wild creation: making this monster move is a supercharged stroker engine based on the 6.2L LT1 V8. This engine now displaces 418 cubic inches and develops a massive 750 horsepower. According to the listing, the engine can handle over 1,000 hp, and boost is provided by a 2.9L Whipple supercharger that gets cooled by an air-to-water intercooler. The engine also features LS7 pushrods, Mahle pistons, and CNC-ported cylinder heads, as well as LT4 injectors and a Texas Speed camshaft. The eight-speed auto transmission was rebuilt with new clutches as well as a custom driveshaft and 4.10 gears.
The interior features tech such as a DVD entertainment system and heated and cooled front seats, as well as a premium Bose sound system. According to the seller, this SUV is fully drivable and reliable enough for daily use. It is listed in Austin, Texas (where else?) for $68,988. The odometer shows 8,663 miles on the clock from its single previous owner.
