Cadillac surprised everyone with a special edition model that made its premiere at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show. The automaker introduced the 2019 Escalade Sport Edition – an SUV that simply loves to be black.
As you can see, the manufacturer used gloss black for the front and rear ends, as well as for the sides. More precisely, it hosts gloss black grilles, rear fascia, window moldings, and body side moldings. Also, the 2019 Cadillac Escalade Sport Edition rides on specially treated multi-spoke 22-inch wheels that are treated with Midnight Silver.
Just don’t expect anything more form the 2019 Cadillac Escalade Sport Edition. The automaker hasn’t changed anything inside, so you can expect a carryover cabin that hosts a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, an identical dashboard and steering wheel with heaters. Passengers in the front will be able to enjoy in heated and cooled front seats, while the second-row bucket seats get the heaters only.
The special edition model has nothing special under the hood. It’s paired with the familiar 6.2-liter V-8 that continues to be good for 420 horsepower. The mill comes paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission, while buyers can choose between rear- and four-wheel drive setups.
The 2019 Cadillac Escalade Sport Edition is available Luxury, Premium Luxury, and Platinum trims. The automaker will start accepting orders early next year. However, before you decide to buy one, you need to know that the starting option costs $84,790, including destination.
