Production of the 2025 Cadillac Escalade-V ESV is expected to begin in November 2024 at the GM Arlington plant in Texas, United States.
Like all units of the first-generation Escalade-V, the 2025 Cadillac Escalade-V ESV will ride on the long wheelbase variant of the GM T1 platform. Otherwise known as GMT-T1 or T1XX, the architecture is designed for pickup trucks and body-on-frame SUVs.
The 2025 Escalade-V ESV will be continue being offered in a single seating configuration, seating seven passengers in a 2-2-3 layout. This setup features front bucket seats (providing seating for two), along with captain’s chairs in the second row (seating two) and a bench seat in the third row (seating three).
We expect the current, first-generation Escalade-V to remain in production through at least the 2027 model year.
