In this day and age, you really hear the term “sleeper” thrown around quite a bit. Sometimes, it might be applied to rides that don’t necessarily fit the bill as much as they probably should. However, it’s really hard to argue with the fact that this Cadillac Escalade is anything but a sleeper. Sure, it might be equipped with slicks on all four corners but come on, it’s an SUV that weighs probably twice what that of the competition does in most scenarios. There is absolutely no way that you’d expect something like this to be taken seriously but that’s where this Cadillac really shines.
In this one, we get to see just how far the legs of the luxury truck can possibly be stretched when someone who wants to go fast takes possession of the keys. I mean, after a while, things would probably begin to get rather complicated and start to break with all of that weight to move but this time, we get to see someone who is taking a crack at it anyway. How much more power can be thrown at the SUV with the help of a supercharger? Head out on a journey to find out exactly that as we take a ride with Mitchell Stapleton’s Escalade that flexes its muscles a little bit more than most.
Follow along with the big, bad SUV below as it takes its chances when going head to head with a group of cars that certainly are no slouches themselves, including a Chevrolet Corvette and Nissan GT-R alongside a handful of other machines that you would probably think would make light work of the Escalade. However, I think you can already see how this one is shaping up! It’s oddly satisfying to watch as the heavy GM product as it’s able to float like a butterfly and sting like a bee!
