2013 Cadillac Escalade ESV in Miami
The 2013 Cadillac Escalade ESV is a long-wheelbase version of the Escalade. The Escalade offers one of the segment's most powerful engines, which will make it a great vehicle for drivers who tow and like the feeling of strong acceleration when not towing. Similar in size to the Chevy Suburban, the ESV is 21 inches longer than the regular Escalade. That adds up to more third-row seating room and nearly triple the cargo space behind the third-row seats. Plus, middle passengers get windows that roll all the way down.Are you in the Miami area and in search for an excellent luxury vehicle such as the Escalade ESV?

2013 Escalade ESV Power & Handling
The '13 Escalade ESV uses the same engine as the regular Escalade: a 6.2-liter V-8 with 403 horsepower and 417 pounds-feet of torque. It is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. The 6-speed automatic transmission shifts imperceptibly except during full-throttle acceleration; it's tuned for mileage so it up-shifts quickly and needs a firm shove on the gas pedal to downshift. A Tow/Haul mode holds gears longer, or the driver can select gears manually via a button on the column-mounted shift lever. The multi-information display in the instrument cluster clearly displays the selected gear.
2013 Cadillac Escalade ESV Design
The front end of the 2013 Escalade ESV is dominated by a traditional Cadillac egg crate grille draped in chrome. The grille is flanked by three-element, vertical headlamps that tie the vehicle to the rest of Cadillac's lineup. The bumper and front trim are cleanly integrated, and the Escalade looks more like a massive car than a truck. The Escalade ESV 2WD and ESV AWD are equipped the same as the standard Escalade, except the rear entertainment system has two screens mounted from the ceiling. The ESV adds more than a foot of space between the front and rear axles, so the rear side doors are much longer. This allows the side windows to go all the way down into the doors, and makes entry to the third row much easier; second-row riders will still have to turn their feet to get them between the seat and the door post. Third-row legroom and cargo area are similarly improved. If you often have more than four aboard, then the ESV is the more comfortable vehicle. The ESV also features substantially more cargo space.
Safety features on the 2013 Cadillac Escalade ESV models include anti-lock four-wheel disc brakes with EBD and Brake Assist; and StabiliTrak electronic stability control with rollover sensing. Passive safety features include front seat belts with pretensioners and load-limiters, dual front airbags, side airbags for outboard front seats, and side-curtain airbags that span all three rows of seats. Tire-pressure monitors and OnStar 9.0 are also standard. For more on this model visit the official Cadillac Escalade ESV website!
