The GM Authority Take
As we have mentioned previously, the black-out trend in the luxury car space is gaining popularity, with BMW, Audi, Mercedes-Benz, and Lexus all offering some form of black-out packages on their compact luxury sedans and coupes. So it’s great to see Cadillac embracing the trend.
That said, we would really like to see Cadillac expand the availability of the Black Chrome package to more colors while making it available with the range-topping Premium trim level. After all, rivals don’t limit availability of their black-out trim packages by color.
