After it was thoroughly ventilated in the streets of Hong Kong by some asshole, 401k decided it was time to go bigger with his Escalade. Good-bye spinning rims, hello body armor. The upgraded ride is positively presidential. Armored, armed, and droned out, this thing is ready for another shot at greatness.

He usually mans the racks with two F-B Bumblebees and stashes a Proletarian under the passenger’s seat and some Noizquitos in the center console. This thing only has two cupholders anymore, and the attention to detail and organization to cram so much shit in one (admittedly massive) SUV is positively nautical.

Big luxury at its best. That’s GMC’s tagline for the Escalade,
their high-end luxury SUV. The adverts work,
since this is the ride that all the newest trid stars and
music sensations drop a little piece of their first big
payday to own. Rarely do they ever actually drive it,
but they certainly like to show that they can afford it.
It’s after this first big payday that a lot of those stars
have second thoughts, and this is the ride they take to
run for the hills. And thus, the ride that a lot of riggers
working the shadows need to snag control of in order
to get them back where they belong. Or at least back
where the runners will get some nuyen on their sticks.

The Escalade also finds its way onto the secondary
market (a.k.a. stolen) quite often. This means they’re
available for those of us who might not have the SIN required
to make a purchase at the GMC dealership. Due
to the types of people who often own them in the first
place, the Escalade comes with extra baggage frequently
enough for me to feel it necessary to mention here.
Mob brats, wannabe gangsters, and thugs with image
issues don’t like having their things stolen. Most folks
reading this travel in a far more dangerous crowd, but
stupidity and ego can be a deadly combination when
one of these disaffected punks comes to get their “ride”

Also, thanks to the aforementioned types who often
purchase this vehicle, extra protection is a common
addition. In order to keep the Escalade as luxurious as
owners expect, the extra protection is well-hidden. This
means you can’t tell if it’s been upgraded without taking
it apart. While I’m sure we all trust our grey-market dealers,
it’s just something to look out for if you’re buying
from someone new.

With a rich target audience, the Escalade packs in the
features even when they won’t be used by most. The standard
rigger adaptation is great for security companies with
wired drivers, but for most casual buyers, it’s something to brag to their golf buddies about. Runners like the option since this thing can dance in the hands of a rigged driver.

401k’s Escalade in particular keeps getting shot up. Luckily uncle Wuxing is footing the bill for repairs or else this would be getting kinda old.
