Blink-182’s Travis Barker Drops a 2015 Escalade: Already Bored of the Wraith?

Travis Landon Barker, best known as the drummer of rock band Blink-182, seems like he already got bored of his murdered-out Rolls-Royce Wraith he recently bought, considering a new 2015 Cadillac Escalade just landed in his backyard. A close sibling of the Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban, this big truck is still what most of the artists out there love to buy, no matter the bad fuel economy it comes with.

Having the 38-year old musician and producer switching cars like we do with our socks is not even that strange nowadays. He’s famous, rich, young and just doesn’t care what people think or say. Last time we were writing about this fellow’s car collection, we were a bit astonished considering he bought a Rolls-Royce Wraith.

In the auto market, people already know Barker is a Cadillac enthusiast and has a soft spot for the classics. In fact, the guy is surrounded by a museum’s worth of vintage classic American cars. Well, that also seemed to have changed a bit seeing him buying the new 2015 Cadillac Escalade.

As to the 2015 Escalade, you'll probably want to know it's a totally redesigned model that threatens well-healed customers with an even more opulent interior and better on-road experience. Behind this massive truck’s grill there is a 6.2-liter V8 engine, also the only motor offered.

It features all advanced technology including aluminum construction, direct-fuel injection and cylinder deactivation. As a result, the new Escalade develops 420 horesepower with 460 lb-ft (569 Nm) of torque. In other words, it’s luxury covered in grand size with a fine touch of eccentric. Green is the one thing the Escalade never was and still is not, but when you’re famous you don’t care.
