General Motors has just launched the new 2023 Cadillac Escalade White Sport Edition in Japan, a limited special edition with a contrasting black and white finish accentuating the commanding presence of Cadillac‘s full-size SUV.
The new 2023 Cadillac Escalade White Sport Edition in Japan is limited to only 30 units, and is based on the Sport trim level serving as the range-topping variant of the full-size utility in the Asian country, where it is also offers a more traditional-looking Escalade called the Platinum. In fact, the 2023 Escalade White Sport Edition becomes the brand’s costliest vehicle in the Japanese market.
Interestingly, the only new thing about the 2023 Cadillac Escalade White Sport Edition for Japan is the Crystal White Tricoat color that was only offered on the Platinum. Until now, the only available paint color on the Japanese-market Escalade Sport was Black Sable. All other features remain exactly the same as the existing Escalade Sport.
Cadillac Japan claims that the 2023 Cadillac Escalade White Sport Edition’s combination of the Crystal White paint with the blacked-out appearance of the Sport trim further highlights the overwhelming presence and elegant beauty of the flagship SUV, which is an exotic breed in the Japanese market. Additionally, the 2023 Escalade White Sport Edition’s cabin includes the Jet Black colorway with wood inserts.
On a mechanical level, the 2023 Cadillac Escalade White Sport Edition maintains the only powertrain available for the model in Japan, made up of the well-known 6.2L L87 V8 engine with 425 metric horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque, coupled to the GM 10-speed automatic transmission. The Escalade White Sport Edition comes standard with 4WD.
All 30 units of the 2023 Cadillac Escalade White Sport Edition are now available for sale at the luxury brand’s limited network of official dealers in Japan, where this and all other Cadillac models are not yet offered in right-hand drive. Japanese customers of this special-edition Escalade can enjoy a Private Golf package that includes a round with four professional female golfers.
