The good folks over at C&D have spotted a larger Cadillac crossover undergoing tests in Michigan.
Built off the C1XX chassis (née GM’s big unibody Lambda platform) that underpins the Chevrolet Traverse and Buick Enclave. This means a 3.6l V-6 as the base engine is practically a lock. A V-Sport model with turbo V-6 power is also something that wouldn’t be out of place with a Cadillac badge.
This model is expected to bow within a year and may also be a good indication how committed Cadillac, as a brand, is to the current move to the CT# and XT# naming convention. Given that the cross-town rivals at Lincoln have rediscovered the value of true names on products (something even Cadillac has been flirting with given recent rumors that a production Escala might see production and keep the Escala name).
Along with the recently debuted XT4 – Cadillac sales are sure to surge with this new product in showrooms.
