For 2014 Cadillac’s Escalade is offered in two different body styles, with one engine.  The extra-length ESV model is 21-inches longer, with seating capacity for up to eight adults.
The standard 6.2-liter V-8 is rated at 403 horsepower and 417 pound-feet of torque, and can whisk the big vehicle to 60 mph in about 6.5 seconds. All that torque plus a heavy-duty 6L80E six-speed automatic transmission, electronically controlled with overdrive and tow/haul mode, makes for great towing performance. Maximum factory tow rating with a weight-distributing hitch is 8,300 pounds.
