Appearance

With its carefully crafted exterior, the Cadillac Escalade has one of the most distinctive and head-turning exteriors of all vehicles on the road. The Cadillac Escalade gets several notable features even at the base level. The base trim of the ESV features LED headlights in the front and a hands-free liftgate that adds style and function. You'll also get prominent 20-inch wheels with this trim level, and elegant chrome accents that give the exterior a polished and poised appearance.
