    Cadillac to Get smaller Theta Based "BRX" SUV

    According to the April issue of Motor Trend Cadillac will be getting a Theta-based small-SUV. Theta currently underpins the Chevrolet Equinox, Pontiac Torrent, and Saturn Vue. The magazine is calling the new SUV "BRX."

    General Motors has also trademarked the name "BRX."

    The article also goes on to describe the base engine as the now famous and widespread 3.6L

    A possible BMW X3, Merc ML350 competitor

    Maybe another Europe-only vehicle like the BLS?

    I really don't want to see a new Cadillac pricing below the $30k area in America. The brand needs to build on competitiveness and exclusivity to gain respect from buyers who normally look to Mercedes and BMW...

    I agree, (as usual). Acura and Infiniti have learned this lesson. The vast majority of thier sales are under about 35K.

    BRX!? This new naming thing has to stop. It looks like Cadillac Bronx, although that's kinda cool in my case.

    Cadillac doesn't need a small SUV.

    I'd love for Cadillac to make a "16."

    I agree. I think that they should have not pushed back the complete redesign of the SRX, and committed resources to that instead of a BRX.

    Any chance that there will be a manual transmission on the BRX?
