The Onyx Package, tagged with RPO code PDB, is an LPO (or dealer-installed) cosmetic equipment group that gives the Cadillac Escalade a meaner, blacked-out exterior appearance. The package includes the following content (relevant RPO codes listed in parentheses):
- Monochrome Cadillac emblems (RPO SFZ)
- Gloss Black Escalade nameplate (RPO RIK)
- 22-inch 12-Spoke Gloss Black finish alloy wheels (RPO SSX)
The Onyx Package is available as optional equipment on the Sport and Sport Platinum trim levels. It’s priced at $2,510 for Sport trims and $2,375 for the better-equipped Sport Platinum trims. It’s not entirely clear why it was previously removed, but GM experienced various delays on its accessory 22-inch wheels last year. The Onyx Package includes a set of black 22-inch gloss wheels, which may have impacted the availability of the entire package.
As a reminder, the 2022 Cadillac Escalade is the second model year of the latest fifth-generation nameplate and is available with two engine options. These include the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 L87 gasoline engine, which produces 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque, and the 3.0L I6 LM2 turbodiesel Duramax, which produces 277 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. Both of these engines pair with a GM 10-speed automatic and standard rear-wheel drive, with four-wheel drive available for a price premium. Production takes place at the GM Arlington plant in Texas.
Pricing for the 2022 Cadillac Escalade starts at $76,295 including destination and freight, while the extended-wheelbase Escalade ESV is priced from $79,295 with DFC.
