When i got my ESV, the dealer coludn't get his hands on one with the bench, so i got the buckets. And it was a no cost option, but remember that i'm in mexico and the esv is made down here, so maybe that's different to the rest of the world. Just like the white diamond paint option, to the us customers is a 995usd option, down here it's no cost.
Oh, and we can get it cheaper also, i paid 53,000 usd for mine, straight for the dealer, brand new and fully loaded.
There had to be an advantage. :D

I can ask the my dealer the cost of the bench if you wolud like.

I had to wait to get buckets, all the Escalades in my area had bench seats.

caddypimpin, the dealer may have been talking about getting a bench seat for you from the factory. If so, they ARE expensive as hell. Complete seats are usually available for only the current year model. After that, they have to be pieced together and runs into even bigger money.

If you do any seat swapping, make sure the places to anchor the swapped seats are there. Also the floor carpet may be different, so you may have to cut/cover holes.

Now this is an answer that I would love to find out. I want to get rid of the bench myslef and get the buckets. Getting to the third row is not fun for the kids when the aren't allowed to fold down the seats! (Gotta make em last!) Anyway....looking forward to seeing how this works out. Please please please update this post with your findings. Thanks!

When i bought my caddy i had a choice either way. Go with the buckets and not the bench. Easier to get to the third row seating and the buckets have the armrest like the front, not sure if the bench does. There should be no cost either way. That dealer is BSing you so go find a honest dealer who will take care of you.
