2021 Cadillac Escalade Onyx Package

The 2021 Cadillac Escalade will be launching in a few months, and General Motors has let the cat out of the bag a little early when it comes to several details of the flagship SUV. If you know where to look, that is. No doubt, being an all-new model, the 2021 Escalade is packed full of firsts for both the nameplate and the Cadillac brand itself. The 38-inch OLED cluster is just the start of things. For example, according to the company’s official order guide, the 2021 Cadillac Escalade will debut a new Onyx Package. Below are the details.

2021 Cadillac Escalade Onyx Package (Limited Production Option code PDB):

  • Regular Production Option (RPO) code VYW: Premium carpeted floor mats
  • LPO (SFZ) Monochromatic Cadillac emblems
  • LPO (RIK) Gloss Black Escalade nameplate

The Onyx Package is available on both the 2021 Escalade and longer 2021 Escalade ESV, but only on the Sport and Sport Platinum trim levels. Additionally, the wheels of the package cannot be swapped out, nor are they offered with wheel locks. The package is also not available with a Brandy colored interior with Very Dark Atmosphere accents (RPO H0B).

In short, the 2021 Cadillac Escalade Onyx Package bundles up a bunch of official Cadillac accessories, and offers them up as a unique appearance package. In effect, the new Escalade will have a stealthier, brooding, and more monochromatic exterior. Pricing is TBA at this point, but expect more details soon.

During the media backgrounder of the 2021 Escalade, designers eluded to a new monochromatic badge option. This is likely what they were talking about.

General Motors is getting ready to resume production across the United States and Canada by May 18th. That includes the mighty Arlington Assembly plant in Texas, where the new Escalade will be built.

Some highlights over the years of his reporting include the uncovering of the Zora trademark before anybody else reported on the coming of a mid-engine Corvette, as well as the dead-accurate reporting of the coming of the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2, two years before it hit the market, and even before the debut of the concept vehicle. This type of reporting has immediately continued here, with reports of the original seventh-generation Camaro plans being shelved, as well as what's in store for the Chevrolet Silverado.
