Hennessey has a reputation for taking decent, normal vehicles and turning them into complete monsters. Nobody should be surprised the Texas tuner has revealed an 842-horsepower Cadillac Escalade. The SUV moves like a runaway freight train, making it scarily awesome to behold in the video below.
The HPE800 Supercharged Cadillac Escalade charges from 0 to 60 mph in 3.9 seconds. To accomplish such insane acceleration, Hennessey slaps a potent supercharger onto the 6.2-liter V-8, pushing peak output to 842 horsepower and 855 lb.-ft. of torque. To say it’s a dramatic way to get the kids to soccer practice is definitely an understatement.
Before you get all excited and want to buy one, know this kind of performance isn’t cheap. Just outfitting your Escalade with the basic upgrade package will set you back $55,000. Adding the better brakes, wheels and tires from Hennessey costs another $25,000.
