If the all-new model is too expensive for you, Cadillac is offering a tempting discount for the old model this month.
Sales of the all-new 2021 Cadillac Escalade are now underway, and it hasn't taken long for it to reclaim the full-size luxury SUV crown. This is the upgrade the Escalade sorely needed, as the old model struggled to compete with its newer rivals like the Lincoln Navigator.
Cadillac's redesigned SUV has a starting price tag of $77,490, but nearly half of the automaker's customers are willing to spend over $100,000 after they've added optional extras. But while the new Escalade is already proving popular, there are still lots of unsold 2020 models clogging up dealer inventories that Cadillac is desperate to sell.
As a result, Cadillac has been offering significant discounts for the last-generation Escalade to entice buyers looking for a cheaper alternative to the brand new model. This month is no exception, as the 2020 Cadillac Escalade is available with a $9,500 rebate across dealers nationwide. You have plenty of time to take advantage of this discount too, because the offer will run until March 1, 2021.
With the $9,500 purchase allowance, the starting price of the 2020 Cadillac Escalade drops to $66,990, which is a massive saving. Upgrading to the Luxury trim will now set you back $72,590, while the price of the Luxury Premium trim drops to $76,990 and range-topping Platinum trim gets slashed down to $84,090.
If you need more room inside, the rebate is also available for the stretched 2020 Cadillac Escalade ESV. Normally, the standard Escalade ESV will set you back $79,490, but the discount reduces the price to $69,990. With the discount applied, prices for the ESV Luxury, Premium Luxury, and Platinum trims drop to $75,590, $79,990, and $87,090 respectively. All prices include a destination charge of $1,295.
These are great savings, but you obviously won't get any of the upgrades offered in the new 2021 Cadillac Escalade, which comes equipped with a 38-inch curved OLED display and the latest Super Cruise semi-autonomous technology.
