    I have an 02 escalade I purchased new. I’m interested in buying a 2016 platinum edition. I was hoping Cadillac would build one with the Supercharged engine. Is that a possibility?

      Well, the 2015 Cadillac Escalade is available with supercharged engine upgrade thanks to Hennessey Performance (HPE). Since there is no official info about 2016 model, we can’t claim for sure. However, we believe that it will be available in some form, whether as optional in Escalade’s range or as a special edition.
