The Cadillac Escalade is the undeniable king of GM’s full-size SUV lineup, as 2021 ushers in an all-new model. With a totally redesigned interior, a new fully-independent rear suspension, and loads of tech upgrades, the T1 Platform-based SUV promises to be quite the step on from the outgoing model. Along with the new SUV comes a host of new options, such as the aptly named Radiant Package.
Available exclusively on the Luxury, Premium Luxury, and Luxury Platinum trims, the 2021 Cadillac Escalade Radiant Package adds a bit of monochromatic sheen to the exterior. First introduced in 2017, the updated package includes upgrades such as a set of 22-inch 12-Spoke Chrome wheels, a Bright Sport mesh grille with Galvano surround, and monochromatic Cadillac emblems throughout. Inside the SUV you’ll find Premium carpeted floor mats,as well as Cadillac crest puddle lamps upon your departure. Owners can spec either black 12-spokes or a set of multi-spoke wheels for an additional cost. The Radiant Package carries an MSRP of $3,295 on both 2021 Escalade and Escalade ESV models.
The Radiant Package isn’t too unlike the Onyx Package, which is available on the Sport and Sport Platinum Trims regardless of wheelbase. Whereas the Radiant Package brings a brighter look to the 2021 Cadillac Escalade, the Onyx Package brings a sinister blacked-out vibe. The package includes 22-inch 12-spoke wheels finished in Gloss Black, illuminated Cadillac crest puddle lamps, premium carpeted floor mats, monochromatic Cadillac emblems and a Gloss Black Escalade nameplate. The Onyx Package only carries an MSRP of $2,295.
Should customers not want to opt for the packages, the Galvano grille surround, black lettering, monochromatic badge, and puddle lamp with the Cadillac crest are all available a la carte. They are priced from $995, $195, $295, and $135, respectively. This also allows customers to then choose a different wheel option. The 2021 Cadillac Escalade Radiant Package features an exclusive wheel pairing.
Both the Radiant and Onyx Packages should give buyers a chance to perfectly tailor their 2021 Cadillac Escalade to fit their style. Ordering for the range-topping SUV is open now, as is the Build and Price tool on the automaker’s website. The SUV is expected to arrive in late 2020, with dealer deliveries taking place this fall.
