General Motors will look to expand its luxury crossover offerings by introducing a 7-seater Cadillac crossover based on the company’s Lambda platform. GM already offers this platform in the rest of its brands with the Chevy Traverse, GMC Acadia and Buick Enclave.
The model was initially planned to arrive quite some time ago but GM’s bankruptcy proceedings put a hold on the project. According to InsideLine, Karl Stracke, GM’s VP of global engineering has confirmed the vehicle is now moving forward again.
The new crossover is expected to share design elements with the upcoming XTS flagship sedan and use a version of GM’s direct-injection 3.6-liter V6 engine. There’s also the possibility that it could get the rumored twin-turbo direct-injection V6.
Does GM really need another Lambda crossover?
