Under the Hood

The Escalade ESV uses the same engine as does the regular Escalade: a 6.2-liter V-8 with 403 horsepower and 417 pounds-feet of torque. It works through a six-speed-automatic transmission. Permanent all-wheel drive — optional on the regular Escalade — is standard on the ESV.

Towing capacity increases 200 pounds over the regular Escalade, to a maximum of 7,600 pounds when properly equipped.
