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.
