: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

The long-wheelbase version of Cadillac's flagship SUV, the Escalade ESV caters to buyers who can't get enough passenger room and cargo capacity. You also enjoy even greater luxury and refinement in this new generation of the brand's largest vehicle.

What's New For 2015

The Escalade ESV has been completely redesigned.

Choosing Your Cadillac Escalade ESV

Unlike many competitors, the ESV offers a truly spacious third row and significant cargo space behind it. When you don't need the extra seating, the row folds completely into the floor at the touch of a button. Motivating all of this iron is a 420-horsepower 6.2-liter V8, matched to a six-speed automatic transmission. As before, rear-drive is standard, but most buyers opt for the four-wheel drive setup. There's also a revised magnetic ride control system with Sport and Comfort modes.

The enormous load of standard equipment leaves no doubt about the Escalade's luxury mission. Every example gets navigation, chrome wheels, heated and ventilated front seats, heated second-row seats (bench or captain's chairs), a Bose 16-speaker sound system, a rearview camera, parking sensors and so on.

The trim levels have been simplified and differ mainly in safety technology:

Cadillac Escalade ESV


Tacks on a slew of safety features such as an upgraded anti-theft system, blind-spot monitoring, collision alert and a driver seat that vibrates to alert you of potential hazards. You also get power-folding second row and a sunroof.

Cadillac Escalade ESV


Adds even more in the way of safety: adaptive cruise control, cornering lamps and collision mitigation (front and rear) with automatic braking. A rear entertainment system is also standard.

CarsDirect Tip

If you're already comfortable with piloting a vehicle of this size, the Standard model's rearview camera and parking sensors may be all you need to keep things in check. Less confident drivers will benefit from -- and might actually need -- the active safety assists found on the other models.
