Cadillac Escalade sales increased 8 percent to 10,284 units in the third quarter of 2019. This increase allowed the Escalade to remain the best-selling model in its class, with sales outperforming the segment, which is great news given the importance of the Escalade to GM’s bottom line. The vehicle is believed to be the automaker’s most profitable line. As Cadillac readies to launch an all-new, next-generation Escalade for the 2021 model year, it’s also discounting select 2019 Escalade models by as much as $8,000 during the month of November.
It’s worth pointing out that a nearly identical Cadillac rebate has been offered throughout most of 2019, including the discount in July. Such instances provide a more lucrative bargain 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 November 2019 apply to both the regular-length Escalade and extended-length Escalade ESV models, and are as follows:
- Purchase incentive: $3,000 toward the purchase of a 2020 Escalade for current Cadillac owners/lessees who finance through GM Financial.
- Purchase incentive: $8,000 purchase allowance on the 2019 Escalade.
- Lease incentive: $2,500 toward the lease of a 2019 Escalade for current Cadillac lessees who finance through GM Financial.
- Finance incentive: 0-percent APR for 36 months.
Buyers should note the above Cadillac rebate offers are available through December 2nd, 2019 and that special financing has returned this month, as it was not offered during the month of October.
For reference, here are the 2019 Escalade and 2019 Escalade ESV trim levels and their corresponding starting MSRPs, which include a destination charge of $1,295:
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 Escalade Premium Luxury model with a starting MSRP of $86,490, the headlining $8,000 Cadillac rebate reduces the starting price of the full-size luxury SUV to $78,490, making it almost as affordable as a Standard (base) model.
The GM Authority Take
The substantial Escalade incentive in November is likely a strategic tactic to fend off 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. The strategy has been working, with Escalade Q2 sales considerably outpacing those of the Navigator.
