The 2020 Cadillac Escalade ESV, like its slightly stunted sibling, is also part of the fourth generation Escalade which was introduced to us back in 2015. The only striking difference between the regular Escalade and Escalade ESV is the latter's extended wheelbase. This mega three-row SUV is 20 inches longer than the standard Escalade. Thus, freeing up even more space on the inside.

Expert Review

7.2

Overall Rating


What this Escalade ESV carries forward from the standard Escalade though is the same 6.2-liter V8. That engine has not been tweaked or upgraded in any way to make it more capable to handle the ESV’s extended wheelbase. So the Escalade ESV’s engine makes the same amount of power and torque at 420 hp and 460 lb.-ft. A 10-speed automatic shifter manipulates power from the engine to either the rear wheels or all the wheels of the 2020 Escalade ESV. 

The Escalade ESV does cost more than the standard Escalade though. It is a good $3,000 more expensive than the Escalade. At a starting price of $78,195 the 2020 Cadillac rubs shoulders with the Lincoln Navigator, Chevrolet Suburban and Ford Expedition. The Escalade ESV ranks fairly well amongst its competitors, but is it actually better than the regular Escalade? Let’s find out.

We recommend:

The Premium Luxury trim of the several variants of the Escalade ESV is the best overall package. It adds important features like adaptive cruise control and hits a sweet spot with even more advanced collision mitigation system and Blu-ray player. Although significantly more expensive than some rivals, it offers best value for money in the 2020 Escalade ESV lineup.

Powering this extended Escalade ESV is the same 6.2-liter V8 engine that drives the regular Escalade. This engine makes 420 hp and 460 lb.-ft. torque. All that power can be sent either to the rear wheels or all the wheels of the Escalade ESV with the help of a 10-speed automatic transmission.

The all-wheel drive variants of the Escalade ESV are about $3,000 more expensive than the rear-wheel drive units. Other than that, the 6.2-liter V8 and the ten-speed automatic transmission are standard across the range. The 420 hp V8 incorporates heavy technological features to efficiently optimize performance and practicality. 

How fast is the Cadillac Escalade ESV?

The 6.2-liter V8 proves capable not only for the regular size Escalade but for the Escalade ESV as well. The 420 hp powertrain thrusts the Escalade ESV with no fuss. Shifts from the ten-speed automatic unit are well timed and quite seamless. It takes the Escalade ESV’s powerhouse only a while before getting in it’s sweet spot, but once there, the Escalade ESV is a mean accelerating machine on the straights.

2020 Cadillac Escalade ESV hits 0-60 mph in 5.7 sec.

The big V8 on the Escalade ESV uses an aluminum block and heads for optimum weight reduction and better heat management. Also the direct injection along with the variable valve timing system add modern touches to the otherwise old engine to make it all the more responsive.

As a result, this big 5,800 pounds full-size SUV is quicker than most of its rivals despite the fact that some of them have more powerful engines on paper. However, the fastest of the lot is the Ford Expedition even though it gets the smallest engine.

What about the braking performance of the Cadillac Escalade ESV?

All the four wheels of the 2020 Cadillac Escalade ESV are equipped with disc brakes. The brakes feature rotors with Duralife for extended service life. Other than that, the response from the pedal is quite smooth and there’s a decent amount of feel and feedback from the brakes in general.

However, under emergency braking there’s a noticeable amount of nosedive from the big and heavy 2020 Cadillac Escalade ESV, but straight line stability is pretty great. So there’s no denying that the Escalade ESV is a very fun-to-drive SUV, especially on the highways.

Not much is known about the braking performance of the competitors so far. Although, data reveals that the Escalade ESV gets the biggest brakes in this segment. So the feedback from them should also be just as good.

What about its driving dynamics?

As is suggested by the Escalade ESV’s appearance, this big family SUV is not meant for days on the track. There’s no doubt that this Cadillac is plenty fast, but you would be wise to not dip it into corners like the way you would some of the other smaller, low-riding Cadillacs. It’s weight does help keep it planted while accelerating hard on straight roads and highways, but the same takes away its agility.

Nevertheless, the 2020 Cadillac Escalade ESV makes up for a great city ride. The Magnetic Ride Control system features special shocks that adjust the damping in accordance to the change in undulations along the roads. So the dampers soften up on harsh roads, and get firmer for those emergency maneuvers.

Also helping with the driving dynamics of the Escalade ESV are its variable-assist electric power steering, new-design mounts, and a revised suspension geometry and wider track for the rear. In the all-wheel drive variants of the Escalade ESV, an auto mode allows on-demand four-wheel drive for situations that ask for it. Then there’s the auto-locking rear differential which further improves stability by limiting power to the rear wheels in case there’s a considerable amount of oversteer.

Overall, this full-size SUV from Cadillac is one fun-to-drive vehicle that can easily steer out of most driving scenarios while being incredibly comfortable at the same time. However, one must acknowledge the fact that the Escalade ESV is too big for comfort on the racetrack.

2020 Cadillac Escalade ESV SUV Fuel Economy

7.5/10

The 6.2-liter V8 on the Escalade ESV has been optimally enhanced to deliver power performance and efficiency at the same time. The 2020 Escalade ESV’s engine features an Active Fuel Management system. This system controls the number of cylinders that run at the same time for achieving better fuel efficiency numbers.

While simply cruising along within speed limits, the Active Fuel Management system allows only four cylinders to run simultaneously. So less fuel is consumed at lower speeds. When you stomp down on the accelerator, the same system lets all eight cylinders run full power. Thereby helping with better acceleration. Thus, helping the Escalade ESV achieve better efficiency on the road.

The Lincoln Navigator and the Ford Expedition do an exceptional job at being fuel efficient. Though, the Escalade ESV has the biggest fuel tank in this comparo, and as a result it manages to fair well against its competitors.

2020 Cadillac Escalade ESV SUV Interior

7.2/10

The 2020 Cadillac Escalade, like the 2020 Escalade, has space for up to 7 people. However, the Escalade ESV is about 20 inches longer than the regular Escalade, and also has a 14-inch longer wheelbase than the same. As a result those seven people to sit inside the Escalade ESV will be all the more comfortable.

There’s plenty of room all around the cabin. Especially in the third row, there’s a lot more legroom than the standard Escalade. In fact, headroom in the third row is simply best in class. The cabin is wrapped in cut-and-sewn materials and real wood trim. As a result, the inside of this Cadillac feels rather traditional in general, while still being plenty plush and very well detailed.

2020 Cadillac Escalade ESV seating layout

To top it all off, the 2020 Cadillac Escalade ESV gets special acoustic-laminate glass to counter noise from creeping into the cabin. These glasses along with the Active Noise Cancellation technology, do a phenomenal job of keeping the cabin quiet and calm. Also the Magnetic Ride Control function constantly adjusts the dampers for better adaptability on roads. Overall, the Cadillac Escalade ESV is easily one of the most comfortable three-row SUVs in the market.

All the three-row SUVs in this face-off are more or less equally comfortable for passengers. However, none of them offer the kind of third-row comfort as the Escalade ESV does.

Does it come loaded with tech inside?

Standard on the 2020 Escalade ESV is a 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system. This instrument cluster features high resolution display and replaces the conventional analog gauges for good. The infotainment features include:

2020 Cadillac Escalade ESV infotainment system
  • HD radio
  • Bluetooth connection
  • Wifi Hotspot
  • Apple CarPlay
  • Android Auto

Creature comforts on offer in the Cadillac Escalade ESV

Besides being incredibly spacious and comfortable, the Escalade ESV also has several convenience features to further enhance the experience of driving around in this SUV. The comfort features available on the 2020 Cadillac Escalade ESV are:

  • Steering wheel audio controls
  • Power mirrors
  • Multi-zone A/C
  • Automatic parking
  • Climate control
  • Cooled/heated front/ rear seats
  • Heated steering wheel
  • Remote engine start
  • Remote trunk release
  • Keyless start
  • 16-speaker Bose Centerpoint sound system

What about utility?

The standard Escalade does not have a boot to match its overall appearance. This is where the ESV takes all the attention away from the regular Escalade. The longer Escalade ESV benefits greatly from its extended wheelbase. As a result there’s all the more space on the inside of the Escalade ESV to store all the things you want to carry along. Also, the hands-free power tailgate system, standard on all Escaldes from the year 2019, make loading and unloading of cargo a lot more convenient.

7.5/10

The Escalade ESV looks exactly like the regular Escalade. The only way to tell the Escalade ESV’s extended wheelbase. On the front is the big, bold grille that house the swept-black headlights, and the boxy shape reminds us of a Tahoe or Suburban. It’s all that chrome which gives the Escalade ESV its own identity.

Things on the side are rather simple. The boxy shape follows along the sides of this Cadillac. The large 20-inch wheels take center stage. But with the other 22-inch wheels, the Escalade ESV looks as if it were ready for take-off.

2020 Cadillac Escalade ESV three quarter view

Moving over to the back, the Escalade appears even bigger. The big tailgate features the Cadillac logo in the center of a chrome strip that seems to separate the rear windshield from the rest of it. At the bottom left corner is the Escalade branding also in chrome. Putting together the entire back end of this Cadillac are Eldorado-inspired tail lights.

2020 Cadillac Escalade ESV SUV Competition

7.0/10

Cadillac Escalade ESV vs. Lincoln Navigator

The Lincoln Navigator is one true competitor of the Cadillac Escalade ESV. They’re both offerings from premium brands and offer immense presence on the road. The Lincoln Navigator has an upper hand in some cases, like on paper it has a bigger engine. But in a more holistic approach, the Escalade offers a much better value for money. It is faster, offers more fuel capacity and even has the biggest boot in the segment.

2020 Lincoln Navigator

Cadillac Escalade ESV vs. Ford Expedition

The Escalade ESV and the Expedition are both equally capable cars. Both offer seating for up to eight people and make up for very comfortable family SUVs. However, for the price of the Base Escalade ESV, one can get the most feature loaded variant of the Expedition. This is where the Ford simply runs over the Escalade. Even though it has the smallest engine on paper, it is one of the most capable one in reality. Also the kind refinement in ride quality that the Expedition offers is simply best in class. The Expedition isn’t just a better SUV than the Escalade ESV, it’s a better SUV than most other three-row SUVs in general. 

2020 Ford Expedition

 

2020 Cadillac Escalade ESV SUV Final Verdict

The Escalade ESV makes up for all the shortcomings of the standard Escalade. It’s more spacious, has a bigger boot, and even the ride quality is a huge step up in the Escalade ESV. This Cadillac makes a much stronger case for itself than the regular Cadillac, and should definitely be preferred over the standard Escalade. Especially the fact that for an additional $3,000 you get a lot more car makes the Escalade ESV a much sweeter deal.

Driving never really feels lacking anything at all. Hitting the gas results in no delay and it registers the input real quick. Going over 70mph is not a hard thing to do and it does a pretty good job of keeping the road/wind/engine noise out. Then there is navigation with a lot of info filling up the empty spaces for instance firm handling and turning radius.

Just when one thinks cars can't be any better, automobile companies come up with something new to stay up in the game. We were going to buy the Navigator when someone recommended us the Escalade. I actually considered the suggestion and did some research on the both suvs and found out both happened to be same in terms of features and driving as per reviews but Cadillac wasmore economical. Test drove both suvs and finally loaned the Escalade. I couldn't have made a better decision. Saved a couple thousand bucks and got everything I was looking for.
