    Re: Will Next SRX Get Hefty Jump In Price?

    Oh, I forgot to mention the SRX being of the "best luxury brand made in America" according to many car mags is actually made in Mexico!!! I would like to drive an SRX made by honest to goodness Red, White and Blue Americans!!! Not going to happen in my lifetime, but I can always dream.

    BTW, Cadillac sold 149,782 units in 2012 in the US; Lexus sold 198,552 in 2011. The SRX, Cadillac's best seller, made up 57,485 of Cadillac US sales in 2012, or about 38.4%. Being an old fart, I can still remember the old GM and it's stepping stones you were to follow to fame and fortune--Chevy, Pontiac, Oldsmobile, Buick and Cadillac; now a new loaded '14 Impala is about $42,000 before fees, taxes, etc. and looks really sharp with almost the same tech as the XTS. Is the '14 XTS at $63,000 similarly equipped $21,000 better? Oh, greed is good!!!

    Wasn't GM one of those automakers that got bailed out by the U.S. taxpayer? And increasingly higher prices are the thanks we get for all we have done to save their butt. Figures.

    Steve your continued sarcasm is getting old. You just love to

    You continue to avoid talking about the real issues at hand and that is the added costs that it will take to compete and win in the global luxury market. Once again you change the topic of discussion and digress to something else that obviously troubles you ... paying more for better equipped vehicles. You are avoiding the real added costs it will take for Cadillac to go head to head and to continually raise the bar to meet and or exceed the other luxury brands on the market. It takes cutting edge designs, highest quality materials and lots of new technical innovation and yes some of those great improvements will result in added costs to the consumer. GM just can't keep adding and absorbing those costs without being able to raise prices sooner or later.

    Does that mean you won't want to buy any great GM cars that are made in Canada too? I wish that all GM cars were made in North America but yes it will never happen for GM and all the other major auto companies have to make vehicles in every major country to help attract loyal customers there too. I don't like the fact that GM sells more vehicles in China then they do here in the US but that is the hard cold facts and if any auto company wants to survive in a global economy they must build everywhere any anywhere there is a growing market.

    Last time I checked Mexico was in North America. I have nothing against GM wanting to build cars as cheaply as possible and charging whatever the market will bear, but Cadillac is an American marque and it would be nice to drive a totally American vehicle again. As I said, greed is good as long as I know where my money is going. I would like all of it to stay in America. I also hate having to pay for all that expensive foreign oil too; most of which comes from Canada, BTW!!!

    Then I guess they will be selling to the 1% because at the rate they're going they will be the only ones left who can afford it. GM is another one of those "American" corporations that is going to bring the ire of the American public down on it eventually.

    I would have to guess that most of us on here are not even close to being in the 1%ers bracket but we all still own a Cadillac. If your ultimate goal is to save more money then you might want to consider buying a lesser expensive vehicle next time around.

    If you think Cadillac sales will suffer you might want to read this article Cadillac sales are up 40% in May. http://www.mlive.com/auto/index.ssf/...sales_inc.html

    ...The SRX remained Cadillac’s best-selling vehicle at 3,744 units, but the ATS made some ground with sales of 3,249 units last month.

    Cadillac was the only brand from GM to have any substantial growth ...

    ______________________________________

    Another glowing article... http://www.marketwatch.com/story/gm-...ars-2013-06-03

    By Melodie Warner
    General Motors Co.'s (GM, GMM.U.T) U.S. auto sales rose 3.1% in May as Cadillac brand sales soared.

    Results exceeded expectations from car-shopping website Edmunds.com.

    "Cadillac is growing faster than it has in almost 40 years, the pickup rebound is in full swing and we're seeing strong retail demand for our crossovers," said Kurt McNeil, vice president of GM's U.S. sales operations. "These are all powerful signs that the gradual recovery in the economy is becoming more broad-based."

    Broadly, U.S. new auto sales for May are expected to rise 6.5% from a year earlier and jump 11% from the prior month, according to Edmunds. For GM, Edmunds had expected a 1.9% sales increase on the year.

    GM, the largest U.S. auto maker, reported it sold 252,894 vehicles in May, up from 245,256 a year earlier and 71% above April's total of 143,743.

    Chevrolet sales edged up 0.9% as GMC sales increased 7%. Total Buick sales declined 3.1% and total Cadillac sales jumped 40%.

    Month-end dealer inventory in the U.S. stood at 708,939 units, down 1.6% from the prior month.

    May had 26 selling days both this year and a year ago.

    Earlier this month, GM posted an 11% profit decline for the first-quarter on a weaker performance in North America, continued losses overseas and the impact of currency turbulence in South America.

    GM North America President Mark Reuss said Friday the auto maker will tweak or freshen its vehicle portfolio more frequently as it looks to increase its competitiveness in the U.S. market. Traditionally, GM would wait years to update a vehicle even if sales were slipping.

    GM shares were up 2% to $34.57 in recent trading.

    Might as well give up Marc, some people can't be reasoned with. But, by his own logic the greedy capitalist software "engineers" are the reason that all those jobs are going to India. Why buy and hire a greedy American when you can get two or three overseas for the same price or less.

    Re: Will Next SRX Get Hefty Jump In Price?

    Cars are generally overpriced, with options raising the price significantly. Cadillac seems to be no better or worse when it comes to pricing. You have to look at the details. What options are "included" and what costs extra. You can get a base BMW for alot less than one that's comfortable equipped. Who really wants leatherette seating in their BMW? I feel that, as others have pointed out, GM is simply going to a a higher optioned car. If you want a less equipped, and thus less expensive car, go to another GM brand. I'll be kicking myself for opting on the Luxury trim for as long as I have the SRX. My next vehicle will have much more, but my SRX has been trouble free. I can't see trading it in anytime soon.

    Re: Will Next SRX Get Hefty Jump In Price?

    I talked to my salesman at my Cadillac dealership a few days ago ( 6-20-13 ) , about just this issue and he told me that the new SRX coming in 2014 asa 2015 will be an updated version that will closely resemble the concept version ( Provoq ) . The headlight bezel will change as well as the fog lights . Look to the CTS front end for a comparison . In 2-3 years he said that the SRX will grow in size and that there will be a smaller CUV based on the new small Buick CUV . And as far as price look for about a 1250.00 increase . JFYI.

    Thanks for verifying what I previously stated about the 3rd Gen SRX. The '14 model run will be very short with a lot of '13s available too as Cadillac will flood dealers to clear out the inventory. Adding the Intellibeam sensor to the '14s will take all of a few seconds. Look for some pretty good deals this fall on the '13s. The '15s will probably start production mid-summer next year. It should be a stunner. I agree Cadillac will do a baby SRX in a couple of years, but I don't see it selling well at the price point of an ATS.
