You may want to act fast though.
If you've been on the fence about buying a 2019 Cadillac Escalade, you may want to act fast. As reported by GM Authority, Cadillac is offering some enticing discounts for the large luxury SUV right now. Firstly, the automaker is offering $3,000 toward the purchase of a new Escalade for current Cadillac owners or lessees who finance through GM Financial, or $2,000 toward the lease of a new model.
If you want to purchase a new Escalade outright, Cadillac is offering a rebate of $8,000, which applies to both the regular-length and extended-length Escalade ESV models.
With the discount applied, the standard Escalade starts from just $68,490 compared to the standard $76,490 MSRP. Upgrading to the Premium Luxury trim reduces the starting price from $86,490 to $79,490, which nearly matches the starting price of the standard model. Opt for the range-topping Platinum trim, and you'll pay $87,590 instead of $95,590. These offers are "not available with special finance, lease, and some other offers" and deliveries must be taken before September 3.
These discounts are being applied to help combat new rivals such as the popular Lincoln Navigator and boost the Escalade's struggling sales.
In the first quarter of 2019, sales of the Escalade dipped by two percent as Cadillac shipped 9,432 units.
Cadillac is also working on the next-generation Escalade, which is expected to arrive in 2020 for the 2021 model year. Reports claim the new Escalade will be offered with a range of powertrains including a high-performance version and an all-electric variant with a 400-mile range. The interior will also be upgraded with a new center screen that's significantly larger than the current model's eight-inch screen, an all-new digital instrument cluster, and new advanced human-machine interface technology.
