What’s New for the 2015 Cadillac Escalade ESV
The 2015 Cadillac Escalade ESV has been completely redesigned for the 2015 model year.
2015 Cadillac Escalade ESV Exterior
The Escalade ESV is Cadillac’s biggest, boldest, and most luxurious SUV. Related to the Chevrolet Suburban, the Escalade ESV is 14 inches longer between the front and rear wheels than the regular Escalade. The new Escalade ESV features a blockier design with bold lines and an aggressive front fascia.
The Escalade ESV’s long list of standard features include 20-inch chrome wheels, magnetic ride control with Sport and Comfort modes, automatic wipers, front and rear parking sensors, a rearview camera, automatic LED headlights, running boards, a hands-free power lift-gate, power-folding and driver-side auto-dimming mirrors, keyless ignition and entry, and remote start.
2015 Cadillac Escalade ESV Performance
The 2015 Escalade ESV is powered by a 6.2-liter V8 that puts out 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque. A six-speed automatic rear-wheel drive comes standard, with four-wheel drive as an option.
2015 Cadillac Escalade ESV Efficiency
The EPA estimates the rear-wheel-drive Escalade ESV gets 15 mpg city, 21 mpg highway, and 17 mpg combined, while the four-wheel-drive model gets 14 mpg city, 20 mph highway, and 16 mpg combined. These numbers generally outperform the Escalade ESV’s competitors.
2015 Cadillac Escalade ESV Interior
The completely redesigned Escalade ESV’s interior boasts premium materials, attractive design and layout, and plenty of space for transporting people and cargo. The CUE infotainment system serves as the Escalade ESV’s centerpiece, perfectly marrying impressive technology with the classic interior.
The cavernous interior features 120.9 cubic feet of cargo space when the second and third rows are stowed, and comfortably seats seven adults across all three rows when the seats are not stowed.
A hands-free rear lift-gate allows users to swipe their feet below the bumper to open the lift-gate, as long as the key is within three feet of the car. The third row is incredibly easy to fold with one push of an electronic button located in the trunk.
Other standard features include tri-zone automatic climate control, power-adjustable pedals, heated and ventilated eight-way power front seats with four-way lumbar and driver memory functions, a heated power tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, leather upholstery, heated rear seats, split power-folding third-row seats, a navigation system, a Bose 16-speaker audio system, satellite and HD radio, five USB ports, a CD player and an auxiliary audio jack. With so many great features, you’ll have no trouble keeping everyone comfortable and connected, whether you’re driving across town or across the country.
2015 Cadillac Escalade ESV Safety
When it comes to safety, the Escalade ESV spares nothing. Standard safety features include antilock disc brakes, traction and stability control, a rearview camera, front and rear parking sensors, front seat side airbags, side curtain airbags, and an airbag located between the front seats. Upgrade to the Luxury or Premium trims for even more high-tech safety features.
