Where did they get the 143mph top speed? My 2009 escalade hybrid is limited to 100mph. My new 2015 escalade platinum is limited to 112mph. Are you saying the 2008's have 143mph speed limit? Who would have known.

The speed limiter is set to whatever the speed rating of the original set of tires was.

Yep, it depends on where the speed governor is set per the OEM installed tire rating, its a marketing ploy.

An Escalade is in no danger of reaching 160mph. (Not without extensive modifications) It could possible strapped to a chassis dyno that it might turn the back tires the theoretical 138 mph.

The automags rate the top speed of the new escalade at 130mph but after trying it here in a michigan race track it can only manage 112mph until you see the warning screen saying 112 mph speed limited.

The HPE1000 Escalade might have a chance. 2 1/2 - 3 tons is a lot of mass, not to mention high drag coefficient of the Escalade.

I wonder if the EXT is a 1500 or 2500 chassis frame. I think the 2500 frame is quite a bit heavier than the 1500 frame.

The ext is on a 1500 frame, that 2500 frame is going to make a bit bigger difference than 50lbs

Yeah, I was thinking between a heavier frame and less sheet metal since it's a truck bed that it might work out to that 50 lbs overall difference.

The Avalanche is available in a 2500 series so I thought maybe the Cadillac might be as well.

I wish they made an EXT on a 2500 frame! They made the 1st gen suburban available on a 2500 frame, not sure if they ever did with the avalanche.
