The replacement for the Cadillac SRX has been spotted completely undisguised.
While it’s pretty rare to catch a car wearing no camouflage ahead of its debut like this, Jalopnik Oppositelock user saw390 was roaming the streets of Manhattan when they came across the American automaker doing a photoshoot for the new crossover. The 2016 Cadillac XT5 will be built on the company’s C1XX platform and rumor has it that it’ll be available with two different wheelbases. Receiving the same design cues as the new CT6, the XT5’s style resembles current ATS and CTS models as well as Cadillac looks to inject its lineup with a more consistent design language.
The 2016 Cadillac XT5 will be powered by a 3.6-liter V6 engine that could be mated to GM’s nine-speed automatic transmission. A hybrid model is also rumored to join the lineup in the future.
Given that the company is already conducting a photoshoot for the 2016 Cadillac XT5 and wasn’t being extra careful to make sure it wouldn’t get caught on camera, it’s likely that it’ll be making its debut rather soon. Look for it to at least be on display at the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show.
