the cadillac escalade esv has been redesigned to be bigger, bolder, and more technologically advanced, with new oled screens and cadillac's super cruise driver-assist system. the 2021 model starts at $80,490 and features more cargo space than the 2020 model, thanks to a new independent rear suspension.
the 2021 escalade esv has 18.1 percent more cargo volume behind the front row over the previous generation. with all seats folded, the esv's total cargo volume is 126.6 cubic feet, which is 17.5 cubic feet more than the 109.1 cubic feet of the standard 2021 escalade. the two new escalades have almost the same amount of interior space in terms of head, leg, shoulder, and hip room; however, the third row of the extended model has 1.7 more inches of legroom.
two engine options are available in the 2021 escalade esv. the 6.2-liter v-8 is standard, and a newly available duramax turbo-diesel 3.0-liter inline-six is optional at no extra charge. both engines are paired with the same 10-speed automatic transmission found on the 2020 model, and both rear- and four-wheel drive models are available.
the 2021 escalade comes standard with more than 38 diagonal inches of oled screens. the three curved displays make up the infotainment system as well as the gauge cluster. the luxury suv also comes with available super cruise, gm's driver-assistance technology, which now offers lane change on demand. an adaptive air suspension, an electronic limited-slip differential, and gm's magnetic ride control are also standard.
the 2021 cadillac escalade esv is available for order starting today and will arrive at dealerships this fall. it starts at $80,490 for the rear-wheel-drive luxury model and tops out at $92,890 for the all-wheel-drive sport model. the jump from rear- to all-wheel drive costs $3000 on all trim levels.
