From the luxurious cabin space, to the commanding road presence, the Cadillac Escalade and GMC Yukon Denali are already impressive vehicles. That said, there’s one very important element missing from these full-size SUVs: pavement-scorching power and performance! Luckily, that’s where aftermarket tuning company Lingenfelter Performance Engineering (LPE) steps in with its latest 700-horsepower package upgrade.
LPE is promoting the new package with a short video, which is playable below. The video highlights some of the more interesting aspects of the upgrade, with close-ups of the new blower, badging, and various other components. The video also throws in a dyno pull and quick acceleration run to see the new parts in action, as installed in a 2019 Cadillac Escalade.
We gotta say, this upgrade looks downright beastly. Seeing the massive Caddy SUV flung down the road in a flurry of V8 growl and supercharged whine is sure to get the juices flowing.
The main party piece is the Magnuson TVS2300 intercooled supercharger system, which looks fantastic sitting on top of the Escalade’s 6.2L L86 V8. Complementing the blower are CNC ported cylinder heads, a new camshaft from Competition Cams, a new LT4 fuel pump and injectors, upgraded valve springs with titanium retainers, and more.
The result of all that speaks for itself, with gains of 187 horsepower and 153 pound-feet of torque. That’s at the wheels, by the way, with dyno runs confirming peak figures of 546 wheel horsepower and 546 pound-feet of wheel torque. Not too shabby for a massive hunk of American luxury SUV.
Eligible vehicles include Cadillac Escalade and GMC Yukon Denali models equipped with the 6.2L L86 V8 engine. The package also comes with the requisite badging and a 3 year/36,000 mile warranty. Pricing is set at $16,685.
