Just two days after announcing that it is doubling its efforts on electric vehicles, GM's Cadillac division has released a new trim for one of its least energy-efficient vehicles, the Escalade. The general theme of the new Escalade is all-black everything and huge wheels.

 

The 2019 Sport Edition will be available in either 2WD or 4WD and will have the 6.2-liter V8 engine. The Midnight Silver finish on the standard 22-inch wheels with low-profile rubber offset the all-black exterior nicely. The suspension will feature Magnetic Ride Control. Inside, there are bucket seats in the second row. “Two decades after its introduction, the Escalade remains the segment’s benchmark and sales leader,” said Steve Carlisle, Cadillac president. “The Sport Edition extends that momentum in response to customer and dealer demand for a dark and aggressive look.”

 

The full list of features include:

-Magnetic Ride Control with driver-selectable modes.
-Available 4G LTE Wi-Fi Hotspot (includes 3GB/three-month data trial).
-Automatic Parking Assist.
-Fold-flat second- and third-row seats with power-folding third row.
-Heated and cooled front seats with heated second-row bucket seats.
-Heated, leather-wrapped steering wheel with wood accents.
-12.3-inch-diagonal instrument cluster display with high-resolution digital driver information center.
-Bose Centerpoint audio system featuring 16 speakers.
-Hands-free liftgate with Cadillac logo illumination.

 

The Sport Edition is a $2,700 option package on the Escalade, which starts at $85K. Look for availability in Q1 of 2019.

Aggressive? Sure we need to promote being darker and more aggressive. Was that a presidential request or the drug cartels? Street thugs perhaps? Or is Mr. and Mrs. Newlywed 2.5 kids needing to intimidate the other soccer moms. 

 

So...this list of items that cost $2,700 are not standard equipment for $85K. :loser:

will it still have those ugly ass long taillights and ugly ass end that it currently does?  The previous gen Escalade was nice.  But this one looks like crap.  (like much of the rest of the caddie line. They need to fix things here too.

My choice of words exactly.  As for the Sport Edition, take away the Park Assist and the Handsfree Tailgate, the truck would be the same as my first edition 2015 Tahoe I bought in Q1 of 2014 at 45 thousand dollars less.  C'mon GM

This is the only way GM knows how to do special trucks. Black trim and black wheels. Yawn.

Agree.

They will sell though.

Sucker born every minute.

      Hello everyone,
       
      I recently bought this clean title, high mileage 2000 Silverado LS Z71 from my coworker. It was right before Christmas and I really wanted to help the guy out knowing full well I could do something with it. Heck, I needed a truck after all. I get home and attempt to drain the oil but nothing comes out. After some poking around with a screwdriver, I get it to drain. Chunks are flowing along with the oil and it turns out there was so much sludge build up in the bottom of the pan, it sucked some up, suffered a momentary loss of oil pressure and spun the bearing. I know the transmission had a hard shift from first to second. Could it be low fluid? Maybe, but why do the swap just to find out the transmission is bad?
      My coworker friend was a smoker and it appears he preferred his coffee without a lid so the interior is....interesting. Also truck only has oxidation on the hood and fenders so the only reasonable choice was to find a salvaged donor vehicle to source parts from!!
      I have a buddy with a dealers license and I'm debating picking up this rear ended 2006 Escalade for a FULL front end/interior/dash/drivetrain swap. Can it be done? Plug and play? Anything someone doing something like this should know?
      I've done some pretty crazy engine swaps and garage rebuilds, 2 stroke porting early on, etc. 

      I have the ability but hopefully you folks can chime in and confirm whether or not it is possible or if there is a better option. I was also looking at a 2004 Duramax/6speed which was t-boned pretty good as a potential candidate but there's something about that plush Escalade interior....

      Our colleagues at US News and World Report Autos have a new list of the best November new vehicle deals and the Cadillac Escalade stands out. According to USN, the folks at Cadillac are offering $7K cash back on the 2018 Escalade. Other interesting GM-related November deals include $5,000 back on the 2018 GMC Acadia $4,000 cash back on the 2018 Chevy Cruze and $ 4,750 off the Buick Encore. 
       
      US News speculates that Cadillac is feeling pressure from the newly redesigned Lincoln Navigator.

      I have two driver side mirrors (long story) that will fit 2016+ Escalade and can be added to Tahoe, Suburban, Yukon, Yukon Xl but you'll have to retrofit the camera if you want it working on anything other than the Escalade. Think there are some posts here on that.
       
      These mirrors are fully operational with no blemishes. One mirror has the black cover and the other has a silver cover that's been removed with one of the cover clips broken and also one of the clips broken where it connects to the door. Door clip won't matter as the three bolts hold securely.
      The mirror with the black cover is $160.00 plus shipping
      The mirror with the removed silver cover with broken clip is $120.00 plus shipping.
      Prefer local pickup in DFW area.
      Mirrors include the following options:
      -Heated
      -Power fold
      -Blind spot
      -Auto sim
      -Camera
      -Puddle light
      -Turn Signal

      I purchased the wheels brand new from a Giovanna Wheel shop and have since chosen to go with a different set of wheels.  Unfortunately the wheel shop I purchased from does not accept returns, so I am listing the wheels for sale.   Wheels are brand new and unmounted, I only unboxed (1) wheel for picture purposes only, then it was repackaged with all the original manufacturer's packaging.   Wheel Details: Giovanna Dramuno 6 Machine Black Finish Size: 24" x 10" Offset: +30 mm Bolt Pattern:  6 x 139.7 Center Bore: 78.1 mm   Fitment: 2007+ Yukon/Yukon XL, Escalade, Tahoe, Suburban, Sierra 1500, Silverado, Avalanche,   Wheels will ship double boxed and with all original manufacturer's packaging just as received from Giovanna.   Asking Price is $1,750 OBO shipped to the continental U.S. Prefer Payment via PayPal I'm located in Dayton, OH and would be willing to meet up within a reasonable distance.   Plastic Protective Cover still on Center Caps:   One of the deepest concave style wheels available; About 3" Deep Concave from rim lip down to center cap:   Repackaged with Original Manufacturer's Plastic Lip Protector:   Some "Stock" Images:

      Cadillac dealers are offering owners of Lincoln vehicles $5,000 if they trade up to a Cadillac Escalade. Bloomberg confirmed the bounty program according to the Detroit News.  The dealer memo obtained by Bloomberg says that the special offer applies to either a new purchase or a lease of an Escalade.

      The program is intended to maintain market share in light of the new Lincoln Navigator launch. Escalades are still selling at the same rate they were a year ago. Cadillac sells about 3,000 Escalade and ESVs combined each month. However, like all luxury vehicles, the Escalade, which starts at about $74K, is a vehicle that usually sees a sales spike in the December timeframe. It is no secret that although the Escalade is a relatively low-volume vehicle for GM, it is a very high-profit one.
       
      The all-new 2018 Lincoln Navigator features a 450 hp, twin-turbocharged V6 engine (that many will recognize as the Ford EcoBoost found in the top-trims of the F-150).
