Remember the “Vueick”? Of course you do. It turns out that the ill-fated plug-in Theta crossover is coming back to haunt us all. Well, not really, but GM is reportedly implementing the plug-in technology seen in the canned vehicle into one of its current and hot-selling crossovers, the Cadillac SRX.
According to Reuters, the drivetrain setup will use several components seen in the Chevrolet Volt that allows drivers to drive gas-free, while still preventing “range-anxiety” thanks to a gasoline-powered generator reserve. This will provide more dimension in the form of an eco-conscious offering to the SRX lineup, which currently consists of the docile 3.0L LF1 V6 and the spicy turbocharged 2.8L ECOTEC six. Though we don’t expect the PHEV SRX to show up at Detroit during the North American International Auto Show, we may see it at another show down the road.
