The Cadillac Escalade's exterior design isn't one you can easily miss in the local Walmart parking lot, especially in ESV guise. It exudes road presence like few other cars we've seen and demands attention everywhere it goes, especially when it's all blacked out. From the base model all the way up to the range-topper, the 2023 Cadillac Escalade ESV features a set of 22-inch alloy wheels wrapped in all-season tires. It also gets auto headlights, deep tinted glass and the rear liftgate window/rear side windows, LED headlights, and a hands-free power liftgate. Higher up, features such as a panoramic power sunroof and power-retractable assist steps become standard. Optional packages such as the Radiant Package add unique wheels, a restyled front end, puddle lamps with the Cadillac crest, and monochrome emblems.
The 2023 Cadillac Escalade ESV's dimensions read like those of an oligarch's yacht. This full-size luxury SUV is enormous, especially since it's the extended wheelbase version of an already gigantic car. The overall length of the Escalade ESV is 227 inches (15.1 inches longer than the standard Escalade), the width is 81.1 inches when you exclude the wing mirrors, and the height is 76.4 inches. The Cadillac ESV rolls on a 134.1-inch wheelbase, an increase of 13.2 inches over the regular Escalade. Although the ground clearance is greater than that of an average sedan, we're willing to bet that nobody would want to take an ESV off-road.
With so many luxury and tech features on board, the Escalade ESV's curb weight is monumental. It tips the scale at 5,785 pounds but can go as high as 6,182 lbs with four-wheel- drive and the diesel engine.
