Larger than Life - 2022 Cadillac Escalade ESV
The Cadillac Escalade is a larger-than-life SUV that offers a commanding presence, but it is the 2022 Cadillac Escalade ESV that really steals the show. This long-wheelbase version offers more passenger space, more cargo space, and a larger fuel tank to meet the needs of drivers in Ottawa and across Canada.
What's New for 2022?
Cadillac's flagship model now offers lane-keeping assist and lane-departure warning standard across all models while the higher-level trims come standard with Cadillac's Super Cruise semi-autonomous driving feature as well as front and rear automated emergency braking.
Models and Pricing
The 2022 Cadillac Escalade ESV is available in Ottawa and across Canada in five trim levels: Luxury, Premium Luxury, Sport, Premium Luxury Platinum, and Sport Platinum. Starting at $93,848, there is nothing entry-level about the Luxury model, which starts at $93,898 and includes such standard features as 22-inch wheels, OLED touchscreen with 38 inches of diagonal display, wireless smartphone connectivity, and an array of driver-assistance features.
The Escalade ESV's best feature are found in the Premium Luxury Platinum trim, which adds semi-aniline leather, 16-way power-adjustable front seats with massage, soft-close doors, self-parking, a head-up display, adaptive cruise control, and an AKG audio system with an astounding 36 features. This decked-out ESV has a starting cost of $121,848, but its luxury is worth it.
Cadillac's largest SUV is powered by two possible engine options: a 3.0-litre Duramax Turbo Diesel or a 6.2-litre V8. Both pair with a 10-speed automatic transmission, but the diesel delivers 277 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque while the V8 delivers 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque.
The 2022 Cadillac Escalade ESV might be a big SUV, but it is surprisingly agile and can spring to 97 km/h in just 5.9 seconds when equipped with the V8 engine. It also offers 3,583 kg of max towing capacity.
The 2022 Cadillac Escalade ESV offers an additional 15.9 inches of length versus the standard Escalade, which increases total cargo space to 4,044.1 litres, including 1,217 behind the third row of seats, and provides more legroom to passengers.
Everything about the Escalade ESV speaks to luxury, including the interior design with a curved dashboard design highlighted by 38 inches of digital display between the gauge cluster and touchscreen infotainment system.
