Incentives for the all-new 2021 Cadillac Escalade are non-existent in April. That’s in stark contrast to the situation throughout most of the 2020 calendar year, where the luxury marque offered up to $9,500 cash back on all outgoing 2020 model year Escalades.

The reason for the lack of Escalade incentive offers in April 2021 is quite obvious: demand for the Escalade is red hot, resulting in substantial gains in sales volume (see running Cadillac Escalade sales). That strong demand is compounded by short supply as a result of the ongoing microchip shortage. As a result, it’s almost unnecessary for Cadillac to incentivize sales of a product that’s in high demand yet short supply.
Compared to the previous-generation model, the 2021 Escalade features an entirely new exterior and interior design, new trim levels, and new powertrain options. Additionally, the luxury SUV features exclusive, first-to-market technologies, including a curved Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) screen, the first AKG automotive audio system and Cadillac’s acclaimed Super Cruise driver assistance technology.

There were never no incentives on the 2021 model. Who are you kidding? The incentives no longer apply after February because the previous lifecycle was non-existent on dealer lots.
