Actually, GEVO's, AC4400CW's, and Dash-9's are the same length- 73' 2" over the pulling faces. Drawing's of the ES44AC and SD70ACe can be found in the November 2004 issue of Model Railroader.

Yes, probably the best way to tell these two locomotives apart is by the radiator 'wings'. GEVO's have a much thicker and longer radiator section.
