Cadillac Planning Larger Crossover Model

There’s plenty on the way from Cadillac, including a new flagship model based on its Omega platform, but the American automaker is also working on a large crossover model using an upgraded version of its Lambda platform.

GM plans to have a large crossover for its Cadillac brand on the market as a 2015 model year, and will utilize the same platform that the current Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Traverse, and GMC Acadia are using. Currently, the American automaker has its SRX (pictured above) offering, and the much larger Escalade, so the luxury brand could definitely use a three-row crossover to fill in the gap and compete against models like the new Infiniti JX.

The SRX, on the other hand, gets restyled for the 2013 model year, going on sale this fall sporting the Cadillac User Experience (CUE), interior improvements, a new grille, front fender vents, and LED headlights. A redesigned SRX could also be heading to dealerships in late 2014 or early 2015, and a plug-in hybrid model is a possibility.
