Cadillac's Escalade ESV offers more room for those who find the Escalade, a full-size SUV, just a bit too small. It is 14 inches longer in wheelbase and, at 222.9 inches overall, more than 20 inches longer than the regular Escalade. Third-row occupants benefit from increased legroom, and cargo capacity behind them nearly triples. With seating for seven or eight, the ESV competes with other luxury SUVs like the Lincoln Navigator L and Lexus LX 570.
The Escalade ESV is related to the Chevrolet Suburban and GMC Yukon XL, but it's more luxurious. As with the regular-wheelbase Escalade, the Escalade ESV is available with rear- or all-wheel drive.
