2003 Cadillac Escalade ESV

For those longing for a longer wheelbase on an already lengthy SUV, Cadillac introduced the Escalade ESV in 2003.  The ESV takes on the same 6.0 L, 345 hp V8 engine and 4 speed automatic transmission as the Escalade AWD.  For those looking for the Platinum Edition Escalade ESV trim, switch your search to 2004 or later.

The 2003 Cadillac Escalade ESV has 4 doors, seats 8, and features 45.7 cubic feet of cargo space with all seats up.  Towing capacity maxes out at around 7400 lbs.  Standard features include air conditioning, power windows, power door locks, power/leather seats, cd player, ABS brakes, traction control, and stability control.  Options include navigation system and sunroof.  As for gas mileage, expect to get 12 mpg in the city and 16 on the highway.  

Overall, drivers like the smooth handling and power.  On the other hand, gas mileage could use improvement and the bulky size makes it tricky to navigate tight spots.  Regardless, the 2003 Cadillac Escalade ESV presents a promising new product for those in need of an even more tricked out automotive trophy piece.
