Cadillac Escalade sales decreased 2 percent to 9,432 units in the second quarter of 2019. The results underperform the segment, which is far from ideal given the Escalade’s importance to GM’s bottom line – with the vehicle believed to be the automaker’s most profitable line.
And now, a new Cadillac rebate reduces the price of select 2019 Escalade models by as much as $8,000 during the month of August. It’s worth pointing out that a nearly identical Cadillac rebate was made available last month. These offers are a bit more lucrative than the $5,000 Escalade discount in March and $7,500 offer in April, though they are not as enticing as the $12,000 discount offered in January.
Nationwide Cadillac rebate offers for the 2019 Escalade in August 2019 apply to both the regular-length and extended-length Escalade ESV models, and are as follows:
- Purchase incentive: $3,000 toward the purchase of a new model for current Cadillac owners/lessees who finance through GM Financial.
- Purchase incentive: $8,000 purchase allowance.
- Finance incentive: $1,000 APR cash + 0 percent APR for 72 months.
- Lease incentive: $2,000 toward the lease of a new model.
For reference, here are the 2019 Escalade and 2019 Escalade ESV trim levels and their corresponding starting MSRPs:
2019 Cadillac Escalade:
- Standard – $76,490
- Luxury – $82,090
- Premium Luxury – $86,490
- Platinum – $95,590
2019 Cadillac Escalade ESV:
- Standard – $79,490
- Luxury – $85,090
- Premium Luxury – $89,490
- Platinum – $98,590
Applied to a 2019 Premium Luxury model with a starting MSRP of $86,490, the $8,000 Cadillac rebate reduces the starting price of the full-size luxury SUV to $79,490, making it just as affordable as a Standard (base) model.
The GM Authority Take
The headline-making $87,500 Escalade discount is likely a strategic tactic to fend off new rivals – including the well-received Lincoln Navigator – prior to the arrival of the future Cadillac Escalade, which is expected for the 2021 model year. See more on the 2021 Escalade.
