The men and women of Cadillac are currently developing a crossover that will slot in beneath the SRX in the grand pecking order of the lineup. The global vice president of Cadillac, Bob Ferguson said “I spent 7 o’clock till noon today at the design center on that subject,” in a report from Automotive News. And while we’ve reported on the upcoming vehicle’s development before, it’s good to know it’s still on track.
The new crossover is supposed to be a little “younger” and “more urban” than the mid-sized SRX, which competes with the Lexus RX350, BMW X5, and the like. Expect this yet-to-be-named vehicle to fall in line with a segment consisting of the BMW X3, Audi Q5, and Mercedes-Benz GLK. Also expect it to have Alpha platform underpinnings. The vehicle will be crucial for Cadillac’s growth in the European and Chinese markets.
