We definitely agree that the Cadillac Escalade is that impressive SUV built specifically for powerful and well-connected people that want to impress their enemies with something unique in terms of styling and performance, but sometimes things really tend to “escalade” when the gentle touch of tuning companies intervene.
It is also the case of this particular Cadillac Escalade seen here in the video below, which has received a massive upgrade from Hennessey tuner, well-known for its impressive customizations when it comes to Cadillac products.
