It’s no secret that we have been long-time proponents of Cadillac vehicles equipped with black-out Midnight Edition (now called Black Chrome) packages… not because we like how they look (we do), but because the black-out theme is gaining steam in the luxury space faster than an engine in a locomotive.
In the past, we have rendered a Cadillac CT6 Midnight Edition as well as a Cadillac XT5 Midnight Edition. And now, our rendering wizards have given the Midnight/Black Chrome treatment to the Cadillac Escalade, in black and in white.
Those unfamiliar with the Midnight Editions should know that the idea is fairly simple: replace shiny/chrome exterior elements like the grille, wheels, window trim (and more) — and coat them in black. Cadillac is currently offering the package on the ATS and CTS.
More on current Cadillac vehicles with the Black Chrome package:
Applying the treatment to the Escalade results in the ultimate expression of Midnight Edition/Black Chrome: the black Escalade takes on an incredibly sinister appearance — there’s simply no other way about it. On the other hand, the white Escalade Midnight takes on a more stylish look that’s much less sinister than the black one, but still very stylish. We should also note that we debated giving the white one black mirror caps… but decided not to.
So, what do you think of our Escalade Midnight Editions? Should Cadillac bring this package to market? Talk to us in the comments.
