Cadillac is introducing the new Sport Edition package for the 2019 Escalade, just in time for the LA Auto Show.
The new Cadillac Escalade Sport Edition will be available on Luxury, Premium Luxury and Platinum models, featuring gloss black exterior trim that includes the front grille, window surrounds, body side moldings and more, as well as a set of 22-inch alloy wheels finished in an exclusive Midnight Silver.
As you might have guessed already, the new Sport Edition package is just a styling upgrade, leaving the mechanical bits of the Cadillac Escalade untouched.
Cadillac’s large SUV is still powered from a 6.2-liter V8 rated at 420hp, which is enough to send the heavyweight Escalade from 0 to 60mph in less than six seconds. Cadillac offers both 2WD and 4WD configurations.
The additional features of the 2019 Cadillac Escalade include a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, the company’s latest infotainment system that offers pretty much every connectivity option available, Magnetic Ride Control suspension, a 16-speaker Bose Centerpoint audio system and more.
“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.”
Pricing for the 2019 Cadillac Escalade Sport Edition is set at $84,790 (including destination charges. The Sport Edition package on its own is priced at $2,700, with Cadillac to open the order books in early 2019.
