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.
