Cadillac Escalade ESV History
While the Cadillac Escalade has been on the market since 1999, the Escalade ESV entered the market in 2001, providing even more space for Escalade customers than ever before. By offering maximum passenger and cargo room, the Escalade ESV dwarfs the majority of the competition, showing that, while other brands are looking to build smaller SUVs, Cadillac isn’t following the herd.
First introduced in 2001 in response to the Lincoln Navigator, the Escalade ESV quickly became one of the largest SUVs offered, putting a new spin on living large in luxury.
When the Escalade ESV was originally introduced, it was offered in a single trim level. Now, it comes in both the basic and ultra-swank Platinum level, which offers even more luxury than ever before with plush interior and a plethora of technology.
Reception of Cadillac Escalade ESV
With its spacious interior and large body, the Escalade ESV was the option for those looking to live richly, while still providing plenty of room for passengers. This large SUV has a big pitfall when it comes to fuel economy though, causing many consumers to choose a smaller SUV with more miles to the gallon.
