The 2023 Cadillac Escalade-V offers a substantial boost in performance thanks to a supercharged powerplant and complementary upgrades to match. Notably, the new Escalade-V is offered in both a standard body style, as well as the extended-length Escalade ESV body style. Now, we’re checking out this 2023 Cadillac Escalade-V ESV draped in Crystal White Tricoat paint thanks to the following GM Authority Live Photo Gallery.
With regard to the exterior dimensions, the 2023 Cadillac Escalade-V ESV is physically longer than the non-ESV model, both in terms of the wheelbase and the overall length. While the non-ESV Escalade-V has a wheelbase of 120.9 inches and an overall length of 211.9 inches, the 2023 Cadillac Escalade-V ESV has a wheelbase that’s 134.1 inches and an overall length of 226.9 inches. Overall width is identical between the two at 81.1 inches, while overall height is a little shorter in the Escalade-V ESV, measured at76.4 inches versus 76.7 inches for the non-ESV model.
As we can see here, the 2023 Cadillac Escalade-V ESV looks great in Crystal White Tricoat paint, with the bright finish playing well in combination with the go-fast model’s black trim bits. That includes a glossy black front grille, black window surrounds, and black inner graphics for the taillights. The wheels are 22 inches in diameter, and sport a unique design and dark finish.
As for what’s under the body panels, the 2023 Cadillac Escalade-V ESV is motivated by the supercharged 6.2L V8 LT4 gasoline engine, which provides the SUV with a maximum of 682 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 653 pound-feet of torque at 4,400 rpm. Muscle is sent to the ground via the GM 10-speed automatic transmission, which connects to a full-time all-wheel drive system. Under the body panels, the 2023 Cadillac Escalade-V ESV rides on the same GM T1 platform as the standard-length model, with production taking place at the GM Arlington plant in Texas.
