He said in the caption,

My pops just had his hip replaced and called me and said ‘Hey Mr D the surgeon really feels like I should have a bigger car since my hip rehab..’ I cut my dad off and just started laughing because I knew what he was hustling for. I said ‘say no more. I got you.. just go down and pick out what you want’ then we hung up and hours later I get this pic. He’d kick my ass from one side of the gym to the other for years.”

Earlier Johnson’s father had a hip replacement surgery. The surgery is known for reducing the mobility of a person which makes it difficult to get in and out of the low slung vehicles. Many car manufacturers have come up with innovative seating features to overcome this problem but still sitting low can be a problem for post-operation patients.

The Cadillac Escalade has a very high seating posture that makes it really easy for people to just bend down sit. Also, larger doors mean the passengers do not have to bend down to get in and out of the vehicle.

Cadillac Escalade is quite popular in the USA market. The large SUV has dominating looks and is used by many influential persons and politicians. We are not sure which variant he has bought as a gift but the Escalade is available in two engine options and four variants. There is a 6.2-litre V8 engine and a 6.2-litre V8 EcoTec FlexFuel engine. Both the engines produce a maximum of 420 Bhp and 624 Nm of torque. Both the engine types are available in 2WD and 4WD options.
