Cadillac is introducing the 2019 Escalade Sport Edition to the Middle East, available June 2019 onwards. This is the award-winning Escalade’s first available special edition.
The new Cadillac Escalade Sport Edition is offered on Premium Luxury and Platinum models. It is distinguished by gloss black exterior trim including the front grilles, window mouldings, body side mouldings, plus a Midnight Silver finish on the standard 22-inch wheels.
The Cadillac Escalade Sport Edition is a darker, moodier take on the big American SUV.
Christian Soemmer, Managing Director of Cadillac Middle East, said, “The Escalade has long set a benchmark for luxury, comfort and performance, and the SUV’s popularity among Middle East drivers has proven its pre-eminence in the category. The new Sport Edition further elevates the exclusivity that the Escalade is known for, something that customers in the region value dearly.”
Backing up its popularity with real numbers, the Cadillac Escalade has led luxury SUV sales in the US for 15 of its 20 years on the road. This achievement was made possible due to its powerful blend of style, craftsmanship, and innovative technology. About its capability, there is little doubt.
Proving its credentials, the Escalade has garnered a lot of awards. J.D. Power named the Cadillac Escalade as the ‘Best Initial Quality and Resale Value among Large SUVs’. Consumer Guide Automotive has awarded it the Best Buy title five years in a row. The SUV has also secured the top spot in the prestigious Middle East Car Of The Year (MECOTY) honours list having previously clinched the ‘Best Large Premium SUV’ title.
Aside from a powerful 6.2-litre V8 that generates 420hp, the Escalade also features CUE (Cadillac User Experience) that offers connectivity and embedded navigation with intuitive, smartphone-like functionality.
The overall dark theme continues on the inside with surfaces and trims taking after the exterior.
Cadillac also offers additional and select features with the Escalade Sport Edition. These include Magnetic Ride Control with drive modes, automatic parking assist, Bose Centerpoint audio system with 16 speakers, and heated and cooled front seats among others.
The 2019 Cadillac Escalade Sport Edition will be available for orders beginning in the first quarter of 2019 through Cadillac dealers across the Middle East.
