Cadillac’s next crossover is slated to debut sometime next fall, likely during the L.A. Auto Show.
The company will probably take the opportunity to shift its bread-and-butter product to its new alpha numeric nomenclature as the XT5, aligning it with the product naming strategy that Cadillac announced late last year. The SRX became Cadillac’s best seller after it migrated from the rear-wheel drive Sigma platform in its first generation to the front-wheel drive based Theta platform that it is currently based on.
But the SRX is also one of the oldest vehicles in its segment and sales are starting to taper off. In 2014 Cadillac sold 53,578, which is a 5.6 percent decrease over 2013.
