The new 2023 Cadillac Escalade-V is certainly impressive, but now, Callaway Cars is offering an alternative in the form of this new SC602 supercharger package for the “standard” Cadillac Escalade luxury SUV.
For those readers who may not know, Callaway Cars specializes in making GM products faster, with a wide range of upgrades on offer for The General’s cars, pickups, and SUVs. Now, Callaway is offering up this new blower package that takes the latest fifth-generation Cadillac Escalade to a whole new level of performance.
Right out of the box, the fifth-gen Cadillac Escalade produces a factory-rated 420 horsepower at 5,600 rpm and 460 pound-feet of torque at 4,100 rpm thanks to its naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 L87 gasoline engine. However, when upgraded with the Callaway SC602 package, those figures are boosted 602 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 560 pound-feet of torque at 4,500 rpm, a sizable gain of 182 horsepower and 100 pound-feet of torque.
The main party piece is the Gen Three TVS R2650 Supercharger System, which features TripleCooled intercooling to keep the charge air nice and dense. The supercharger is paired with a high-flow intake and low-restriction stainless-steel exhaust system, the latter of which features dual outlets and quad tips. Running it all is Callaway’s CalCal engine control components and calibration, which, impressively, keeps the supercharged Callaway Cadillac Escalade 50-state emissions compliant.
The package also includes a variety of aesthetic upgrades, such as a Callaway-branded carbon engine cover, aluminum door sills, key medallions, and several authentication plates for the dash and engine bay, not to mention special chrome exterior badging. What’s more, the whole thing is wrapped up with a 3-year / 36,000-mile Limited Warranty.
For those customers that want even more customization, the package also offers a variety of optional equipment, such as 20-inch nine-spoke alloy wheels, 22-inch ten-spoke wheels, a billet pedal pad set, an Alcantara horn cover with debossed logos, black exhaust tips, and black exterior badging. Check with Callaway Cars for more information. To note, this package will fit both the standard-length fifth-gen Cadillac Escalade, as well as the extended-length fifth-gen Cadillac Escalade ESV.
