The Hennessey Escalade HPE550 upgrade at a glance:
- Works with the 6.2-liter V8. This means that owners of the 2015 Yukon Denali, 2014-2015 GMC Sierra or the 2014-2015 Chevy Silverado owners can actually use the package in their vehicles as well. The Escalade is simply the most luxurious of them all.
- The upgrade takes the 6.2-liter output up to 557 horses with 542 pound-feet of delicious torque. This is achieved via a belt-driven supercharger churning out 6 psi.
- An intercooler system was added along with engine management software to keep systems cohesive and in check.
John Hennessey made the following statement about the package: “The new 2015 Cadillac Escalade is the perfect platform for a Hennessey infusion of horsepower. It is luxurious, spacious and cries out for personalization and more performance.” I cannot argue with your flawless logic, Mr. Hennessey.
