Rumored for years, a three-row crossover from Cadillac will finally become a reality in 2016.
GM insiders have confirmed that the three-row crossover project has gotten the green light from the American automaker and that development on the new model is already under way. But unlike the original three-row crossover SRX that Cadillac offered, the new model will be slotted between the SRX and the Escalade and is being engineered on a dedicated crossover platform.
The first-generation SRX was underpinned by the CTS sedan’s platform, but the new crossover will be built on the Lambda II platform that currently underpins the Acadia, Enclave and Traverse. Look for more information on the three-row crossover from Cadillac in the coming years, as yet another luxury three-row crossover sets its sight on the market.
According to some reports, the new crossover could share the Escalade name.
