Cadillac’s flagship SUV just got a menacingly murdered-out new look. 

GM’s upscale marque unveiled the blacked-out 2019 Escalade Sport Edition at the Los Angeles Auto Show.

Available exclusively on the $80,000 Luxury, $85,000 Premium Luxury and $95,000 Platinum models, the splashy new ride gets glossy black grilles, window and body moldings, as well as 22-inch wheels decked out in a “Midnight Silver” finish. 

As CNET notes, the package is purely an aesthetic upgrade. It has the same 420-horsepower, 6.2-liter V8 and Magnetic Ride Control that come standard in all Escalades.

“Two decades after its introduction, the Escalade remains the segment’s benchmark and sales leader,” Cadillac president Steve Carlisle said in a press release. “The Sport Edition extends that momentum in response to customer and dealer demand for a dark and aggressive look.”

This year’s LA Auto Show has definitely spawned more exciting announcements, including first official looks at the ultra-quick Rivian electric pickup and the half-pickup, half-Wrangler Jeep Gladiator

But for an extra $2,700, the Sport Edition will surely turn more heads than a regular Escalade will.
