We knew it was forthcoming. And critics are quite surprised to know it would take this long. Still, the Cadillac Escalade ESV supercharger is worth the wait.
The Big 3 Performance has used the supplied technology from supercharger leader Paxton/Vortech to release the much-awaited supercharger system for the Cadillac SUV aficionado. While the supercharger giant knew the 6.2L supercharger system would be in great demand, their product portfolio placed its introduction far off in the future.
Consequently, this ultimately resulted to the Big 3 Performance striking a deal approximately eight months ago to produce the systems in-house and become the first to offer a supercharger system for the 2007 Cadillac sport utilities. The folks at Big 3 Performance are set to etch “yet another leap forward in the never ending quest for more power.” The supercharger systems are meticulously formulated to complement Cadillac Escalade shock absorbers, engines, cold air intake and other relevant sport utility parts.
The Big 3 Performance released supercharger systems for the 6.2L 2007 Cadillac sport utilities employing trusted Paxton/Vortech supercharger technology. The company’s Cadillac expertise and fabrication skills deliver unmatched performance, gas mileage, drive ability, and OEM quality fit and finish in this new high output supercharger system.
The company’s high output supercharger system focuses on maximum durability and low maintenance while providing an additional 147 horsepower and 122 ft/lbs of torque. The Big 3's supercharger kit features either the Paxton Novi 1200 or Vortech SQ Series Supercharger. Each kit benefits from their 50-state emission legal status.
Complete with all components and instructions necessary to ensure an uncomplicated installation, Big 3's supercharger kit truly provides maximum performance without intruding on the comfort or quality of the Cadillac SUV.
The Big 3's supercharger systems are fully compatible with the factory engine management system and also provide a fuel management upgrade including high capacity premium injectors, boost-a-pump and NGK-TR6 spark plugs. These kits also include Big 3’s exclusive ECM reflash which sets ignition timing and fuel enrichment levels. Each kit is equipped with all of the belts and pulleys necessary for a seamless fit with the factory serpentine system.
To go with the integrated air-to-water dual pass charge cooler, Big 3 has gone a step above when providing their exclusive polished air inlet assembly and supplied fresh air system. With a laundry list of features and Big 3's attention to detail, they have truly released what seems to be the definitive supercharger system for the Cadillac SUV's. The innovative system is priced at $6895.
The Big 3 has established a name for their dedication to perfection that has made them highly respected in the industry. The company’s special combination of innovative ideas and ideals has placed them at the vanguard of performance for today's modern muscle cars. The supercharger system is introduced with high hopes.
The Cadillac Escalade moved to the new GMT900 platform for the 2007 model year. Its introduction was accelerated as sales began slipping. The regular Escalade was again joined by a stretched ESV version and a new EXT pickup truck. The 2007 Escalade was the official vehicle of Super Bowl XL, with MVP Hines Ward being awarded one of the first Escalades built.
The Escalade uses an all-aluminum 6.2 L Vortec V8. This engine includes variable valve timing, a first in a mass-produced non-overhead cam engine. The system used in the Cadillac Escalade adjusts both the intake and exhaust timing between two settings.
The Escalade’s fuel economy is rated at 14 mpg in the city and 19 mpg on the highway. A special Platinum ESV model will be introduced this year. Additionally, General Motors Corp.’s Active Fuel Management will come in 2008.
