Cadillac Escalade vs. Cadillac Escalade ESV: Which One Suits Your Style Best?

All-new from the ground up, the 2021 Cadillac Escalade offers fresh styling, new dimensions, and plenty of exciting technology to help you make the most out of your morning drive or weekend getaway. Large and powerful, the Cadillac Escalade is truly the top option for drivers looking for a full-size luxury SUV. With two available configurations, including the larger Escalade ESV, choosing the right model largely depends on what you're looking for from your new SUV! Check out a comparison of the two down below and see which one best fits your needs.


Cadillac Escalade vs. Cadillac Escalade ESV

  • Exterior: Right off the bat, there's a clear difference between the two configurations when it comes to size. The Escalade ESV is longer with a wider wheelbase than the regular Cadillac Escalade. However, the base Escalade is slightly taller than the ESV model.
  • Interior Dimensions: Just like the exterior, the ESV holds a slight edge if you're looking for the most passenger space. While most seating spaces offer similar dimensions, the Escalade ESV offers more third-row legroom and shoulder room, allowing passengers in the back to get a little more comfortable.
  • Cargo Space: When you take a look at the cargo area, you'll find the ESV made the most room for your luggage and shopping trips. The Cadillac Escalade ESV offers a maximum of 142.8 cubic feet behind the first row, up to 94.1 cubic feet behind the second row, and 41.5 cubic feet with all rows upright. The Escalade base offers 121, 72.9, and 25.5 cubic feet, respectively.
  • Performance: While both models include the same engine options, each offers a slightly different way to enjoy your new SUV. The Escalade can tow a higher maximum with 2WD, up to 8,200 pounds - the ESV manages slightly less at 8,100 pounds. However, the Cadillac Escalade ESV employs a 28.3-gallon gas tank, 4.3-gallons more than the Escalade.
  • Price: For all that space, the Escalade ESV starts at a higher price, making it the more expensive option of the two. The base Cadillac Escalade starts at $77,490, $3,000 cheaper than the base Cadillac Escalade ESV.
