According to a report from Automotive News, Cadillac will be launching a large crossover somewhere in the 2015 time frame — the same year we can expect a large flagship sedan from the brand.
From what we know, the crossover will be based on GM’s next generation Lambda architecture, and will slot between the mid-sized SRX and heavyweight Escalade. It’s pretty clear that the vehicle will have a seating capacity for at least six or seven, but that’s as far as anybody can gather at this point.
On dimensions alone, a large Cadillac crossover would make for a great competitor for the Audi Q7, Mercedes-Benz GL-Class, Lexus GX, and Infiniti JX. But by the time 2015 rolls around, chances are all of these rival vehicles will be either completely new or highly refreshed. This will also be one of the first vehicles launched under GM’s new product development structure. There’s also a small Alpha-based RWD crossover to be on the lookout for.
