Hennessey 2024 Cadillac Escalade-V H850 Debuts: Video

For those that the stock Cadillac Escalade-V, with its 682 horsepower and 653 pound-feet of torque is simply not enough, Hennessey Performance Engineering offers a line of upgrades to coax even more horses out of that supercharged powerhouse. The Texas-based tuner’s latest high-powered creation is the Hennessey Escalade-V H850, which puts forth over 800 horsepower.

The Hennessey H850 Escalade-V is kitted out with an upgraded powertrain for a total of 850 horsepower and 855 pound-feet of torque. Improvements over the stock Escalade-V include an air induction system, a ported supercharger, high-flow cylinder heads, custom camshaft, upgraded throttle body, plus new intake and exhaust valves. HPE engine management calibration ensures that all those new parts mesh together without flaw. Additionally, each upgraded Escalade-V is given a serial-numbered engine plaque and signature badging.

Hennessey went to great lengths to ensure that the Escalade-V doesn’t sacrifice its luxurious driving experience in the name of power. The tuner states that all suspension and drive modes remain intact from stock, and promises that each high-performance luxury SUV gets a final performance assessment on an AWD dyno and drivability testing on Hennessey’s private test track. For peace of mind, each Cadillac Escalade-V H850 features a three-year, 36,000-mile limited warranty period.

“Extreme-performance SUVs are one of my favorite types of vehicle to drive,” says John Hennessey, founder and CEO of Hennessey Performance. “Their sleeper status is such a great contrast to their supercar-like performance! Our 850-horsepower version of the Escalade-V brings heaps of performance to this luxury full-size SUV, doing the GM supercharged V8 engine justice. We’re only making 100 of these H850 models, so they’re sure to be exclusive.”

Customers interested in upgrading their 2024 Cadillac Escalade-V with the H850 package can place an order through authorized Cadillac retailers, or contact Hennessey Performance Engineering directly for more information. 

Hennessey even pitted its Escalade-V creation against the 2024 Ram TRX to show what it’s capable of. Check out the video below to find out how the muscular luxury SUV stacks up against the full-size pickup.

  1. I’m curious if Ken Lingenfelter is going to throw down against Hennessey to try and outdo them. I’d love to see that show down.
