Hennessey Performance, a Texas-based tuning company, has recently introduced an enhancement package for the 2023 Cadillac Escalade-V, named the H1000. The tuning experts at Hennessey have meticulously modified the robust 6.2-litre V8 engine, elevating its original output of 682 bhp to an impressive 1005 bhp and enhancing torque to 1196 Nm. This substantial upgrade profoundly transforms the SUV’s acceleration and driving dynamics, showcasing Hennessey Performance’s commitment to delivering high-performance solutions.

The 6.2-liter V8 engine now boasts an impressive power output of 1005 Bhp and 1196 Nm of torque.

The enhancements made to the Escalade’s engine encompass various modifications, including a high-flow air induction system, a custom HPE camshaft, ported cylinder heads, an upgraded auxiliary fuel system, improved valve springs and retainers, upgraded intake and exhaust valves, high-performance lifters and push rods, an oversized heat exchanger, and high-flow catalytic converters.

To ensure both reliability and heightened performance, Hennessey includes essential components such as gaskets and fluids, along with professional installation, engine management calibration, chassis dyno tuning, and extensive road testing covering a distance of up to 804 km (500 miles). Each vehicle that undergoes this upgrade is distinguished by a serial-numbered engine bay plaque and exclusive Hennessey and ‘H1000’ exterior badging.

Externally, the H1000 bears an identical appearance to the standard Escalade-V, with the only distinguishing feature being the presence of an H1000 badge.

Supported by a 3-year warranty or a 58,000 km warranty, the 2023 Cadillac Escalade-V, the H1000, commands a price that is notably higher than that of a new Cadillac Escalade-V. The base model of the latter starts at $154,290 (Rs 1.3 Crore), exclusive of taxes and import duties.
