Report: Cadillac’s SRX to get a complete makeover for new generation

The current second generation Cadillac SRX has been with us since 2009 and is soon due for a replacement. Supposedly confirming the arrival of the third generation model is Cadillac’s chief engineer, Dave Leone, who spoke to Bloomberg recently. The new next gen SRX is scheduled for a launch sometime in late 2015 as a 2016 model.

This is the first word to surface regarding a new SRX, following rumors and reports of Cadillac’s efforts to introduce a new flagship sedan.

When it first came out, the Cadillac SRX was a rear-wheel drive crossover, marking the brand’s first venture into the segment and it did reasonable well–especially since the first generation model was rear-wheel drive, it catered to the driving enthusiasts more than many of its competitors, thanks to sharing its platform with the early Cadillac CTS. Cadillac then did a drastic change for the second generation model, making it front-wheel and all-wheel drive which ultimately subdued its sporty driving characteristics.

Not much is known about the new third SRX. But Caddy was once rumored to be working on a GM Lambda-based large crossover with three-rows, the same platform used for the Chevrolet Traverse, GMC Acadia, and the former Saturn Outlook. That plan was axed so there’s a chance the SRX could grow another set of seats at the back, which also implies an increase in size.
