Vehicle Overview

As with the previous-generation Escalade sport utility vehicle, Cadillac's 2007 redesign includes a long-wheelbase version called the Escalade ESV. Its wheelbase is 14 inches longer than the full-size Escalade's, and total length exceeds the standard model by more than 20 inches. Third-row occupants benefit from increased legroom, and cargo capacity behind them nearly triples.

As with the regular-wheelbase Escalade, the Escalade ESV gets a full complement of luxury equipment, including leather seats for up to eight occupants, plenty of exterior chrome and optional 22-inch wheels. All-wheel drive is standard.

The previous Escalade ESV's platinum edition and its hefty $11,000 premium added such profligate features as climate-controlled cupholders — to keep the Voss cold, of course — and Cadillac says a similar package might be available down the road.

The Escalade ESV will go on sale in June 2006, roughly three months after the regular-wheelbase Escalade.
