Interior

The ESV's extended dimensions don't yield significant gains for first- or second-row occupants, but third-row passengers gain nearly 10 inches of legroom. Cargo volume behind the third row increases from 16.9 cubic feet to 45.8 cubic feet. With the third-row seat removed and the second-row seats folded forward, maximum cargo volume is 137.4 cubic feet — about 28 cubic feet more than the standard Escalade offers.

In the Escalade ESV, the optional DVD entertainment system includes a second 8-inch screen for third-row passengers. A leather interior, automatic climate control and power-operated front seats are standard.

Total seating capacity is seven, though an optional second-row bench expands capacity to eight. With a gross vehicle weight rating of 7,400 pounds, the Escalade ESV can accommodate 1,456 pounds of people and cargo — a 174-pound increase over the regular Escalade. But don't let the extra room convince you to allow too many grown-ups to pile in back, as a full load of eight 180-pound adults and their belongings could exceed the Escalade ESV's capacity.
