2016 Cadillac SRX

2016 Cadillac SRX is a midsize crossover scheduled for a redesign. Major changes that expect the SRX were announced earlier by Cadillac chief engineer Dave Leone. Beside the redesign of the 2016 SRX, source also said that this wave of changes will mainly be related to SRX and Cady’s new flagship sedan. However, there is much more things we do know about “the sedan” but very few about “the SUV”. Prototype of the sedan model, which will probably carry the name “LTS” was spotted on the road during tests, heavily camouflaged, while Cady’s most popular model, SRX is still under the wail of secret.

2016 Cadillac SRX changes

Although few things is known about the redesign of the SRX SUV, some sources indicate that we can expect size increase, since Cadillac officials recently said that plans for a new three-row SUV have been dropped. These changes in planes may result in alterations for the 2016 Cady SRX, which could be launched with third-row seat option, for several reasons. First reason is the fact that demand for third-row SUVs is rising, and Cadillac now doesn’t have proper model for that segment. Second reason is the popularity that SRX already has, which could be used in order to further broad the expansion of the model.  However changes are slim to none that 2016 Cadillac SRX comes as three row seater in is standard trims, but the optional third row seat could be included into the offer.

This huge step in SRX’s life could open new possibilities for Cadillac, which could produce all-new compact SUV which would be successor of the SRX. 2016 Cadillac SRX will be built in GM’s plant in Spring Hill, Tennessee which is currently going through $350 million investment program.

Information about engines of the new Cadillac SRX are slim. It is known that GM plans to expand its Ecotec engine line-up, which now consists of 2.0-liter turbo, 2.4-liter and 2.5-liter units. GM North America manufacturing manager, Arvin Jones said: “The new Ecotec engine family represents the most advanced and efficient small displacement gasoline engines in GM’s history.”

The current 3.6-liter V6 engine which produces 308 horsepower and 265 lb-ft of torque, will probably be replaced, or left as optional, since Cady will switch to some more economical power unit.
