Cadillac’s, and subsequently General Motors’, cash cow soldiers on into the 2016 model year with no price increase, which is good news for prospective buyers. The 2016 Cadillac Escalade sticks with its $73,695 starting price, according to the 2016 Escalade configurator.
The base wheelbase Escalade and ESV, the extended wheelbase variant, both see no increase, with the 2016 Escalade ESV sticking to its $76,965 asking price. The price strategy reflects minimal changes to the 2016 model year Escalade.
New for 2016 are a handful of new exterior color options, lane-keep assist and new CUE features, including the addition of Apple CarPlay functionality.
The 2016 Cadillac Escalade Platinum just barely holds steady, posting a $75 price increase over the outgoing model year.
Don’t expect pricing to stay the same for the long run, though. Cadillac is rumored to be mulling an Escalade-V high-performance SUV and also plans to push the Escalade nameplate higher into the luxury-SUV stratosphere with a six-figure price tag and more luxurious content.
