The Cadillac Escalade ESV is an extended-length version of this full-size luxury SUV. The regular Escalade is based on the Chevrolet Tahoe, and the ESV shares its underpinnings with the Suburban. The Escalade ESV carries over unchanged for the 2020 model year.
The Cadillac Escalade ESV comes in base, Luxury, Premium Luxury and Platinum trim levels. All use the same 6.2L engine, 10-speed transmission and 4WD.
Escalade ESV standard interior features include heated and cooled 12-way power front seats, a 12-inch driver info display, navigation, a 16-speaker stereo, heated steering wheel, power steering column adjustments, wireless smartphone charging, and heated second-row seats.
Standard exterior, mechanical and safety items are magnetic ride control suspension, automatic parking assist, front and rear parking sensors, surround-vision exterior cameras, 20-inch wheels, hands-free power tailgate, automatic on/off headlights, auto-leveling rear suspension, and passive keyless entry.
Luxury trim contributes a rear camera mirror, forward collision alert with automatic braking, blind spot monitoring with lane change alert, lane departure warning with lane keep assist, automatic high beams, 22-inch wheels, power second-row bucket seats, sunroof and a head-up display.
The Premium Luxury package upgrades to advanced adaptive cruise control, forward and reverse automatic braking, front cornering lights, lighted door handles, and a rear-seat entertainment system.
Platinum trim brings power-retractable side steps, 18-way adjustable seats with massage, leather-trimmed dash and door trim, suede headliner and door pillar trim, and a console cooler.
Cadillac's fuel consumption estimates for the Escalade are 16.7/11.1 L/100 km (city/highway).
The Escalade's sole domestic competitor is the Lincoln Navigator. Other large SUVs with big price tags include the Lexus LX, the Infiniti QX80, Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class, the Volvo XC90 and the Land Rover Range Rover. Escalade ESV's platform-mate, the GMC Yukon XL Denali, approaches Cadillac luxury in a similarly large package.
