We knew it was coming and we're surprised it took this long to happen. The folks at Big 3 Performance have released a supercharger system for the 2007 Cadillac Escalade ESV to mark "yet another leap forward in the never ending quest for more power." For serious — that line's pulled directly from the press release. And why shouldn't they be tooting their own horn? For a mere three drachmas $6,895 you can toss them your plain-Jane standard 6.2-liter 2007 Cadillac Escalade ESV, and in short order you'll get back an E-XL-V packing a high output supercharger system that adds an extra 147 horses and 122 lb-ft of torque to the not-normally-meek engine, bumping the final numbers up to a scorching 550 HP and 539 lb-ft o' tire-squealing and race-winning torque. No word yet on whether the next "leap forward" involves strapping a jet engine to the back of the 2008 model. Hit the jump for the rest of the details on the purple-people-eating monster getting the first 'charger. Oh, and yes — it's got scissor doors.

Big 3 Performance First to Release 2007 Cadillac Escalade Supercharger Systems

Big 3 Performance releases supercharger systems for the 6.2L 2007 Cadillac SUV's utilizing proven Paxton/Vortech supercharger technology. Big 3 Performance's Cadillac expertise and fabrication skills deliver unparallel performance, drive ability, gas mileage, and OEM quality fit and finish in this new high output supercharger system.

Waukesha, Wisconsin, July 10, 2007 — Big 3 Performance has utilized the supplied technology from supercharger giant Paxton/Vortech to release a highly anticipated supercharger system for the Cadillac SUV enthusiast. While Paxton/Vortech's management knew the 6.2L supercharger system would be in great demand, their product portfolio placed its release far off in the future. This ultimately lead to Big 3 Performance striking a deal approximately eight months ago to fabricate the systems in house and become the first to offer a supercharger system for the 2007+ Cadillac SUV's.

The Big 3 Performance high output supercharger system focuses on maximum durability and low maintenance while providing an additional 147 horsepower and 122 ft/lbs of torque. 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. 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 Performances exclusive ECM reflash which sets ignition timing and fuel enrichment levels. Each kit provides you with all of the belts and pulleys necessary for a seamless fit with the factory serpentine system. To accompany the integrated air-to-water dual pass charge cooler, Big 3 Performance 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. Suggested Retail Price: $6895.00

Want better performance? Ditch the incredibly heavy bling rims for something more reasonable. Less rotational mass, better acceleration, handling and braking.

Oh, you meant the supercharger, rims and scissor doors are there to compensate for the driver's shortcomings? Well carry on then.
