The ESV features a longer wheelbase and an increase in total length, greatly enhancing third-row seat legroom and rear cargo space. Also, getting into the third row is easier with the ESV, its longer rear door providing a larger opening when the second-row seat is folded. Standard equipment includes a power liftgate, stability control, remote start, and side curtain airbags. Some new options are 22-inch chrome wheels, a rear-view camera, and power running boards. It is powered by a 403 hp 6.2-liter V-8 that is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. For 2008, the Cadillac Escalade ESV receives more standard features.
