Specs at a Glance

The Cadillac Escalade ESV is the largest SUV by size from Cadillac. However, it's also an SUV with an equally impressive personality and charisma. In 2021, the Escalade ESV has some refreshments to be even larger and more prominent than before. This year, the ESV receives a full design refresh with unique lighting elements on the front end that make it more stylish and safer to drive at night. A range of wheels is available for the ESV. It is also over eight inches longer than the previous model, translating to more interior capacity. More technology is also added to the cabin, and the Cadillac ESV has semi-autonomous driving technology in 2021. The first trim in the lineup for the Cadillac Escalade ESV is the Luxury. The Luxury Platinum, a higher-end trim level, adds more standard components and comes with premium leather materials in its cabin.


You have the option to get either a gasoline or diesel engine for both trim levels of the Cadillac ESV in 2021. The standard engine for the Luxury and Luxury Platinum is a V8 gasoline engine with six cylinders.
