Original model was produced until 2009, while second-generation model is still under production. Since 2010, this crossover is the best-selling vehicle of the brand, so it is pretty much legal to say that this is definitely one of the most important models for the company. Because of that this model has a special treatment and company’s engineers take special care when it is about development of next-generation model, which will come in near future. There are different reports about 2016 Cadillac SRX, while some say that it will come redesigned, it is still more likely that next-generation model will come next year as 2017 year model.
2016 Cadillac SRX details and possible changes
As we already mentioned, we believe that 2016 Cadillac SRX will come with only some minor modification, while major redesign is reserved for next year. It is expected that most of the characteristics will remain the same. It will come with the same mechanic and visual characteristics as refreshed 2013 year model, which means that it will also feature updated infotainment system, which will come as standard feature on all trim levels. We expect that 2016 SRX will come with some tweaks which will help this model to remain competitive until third-generation model comes. Most likely, the only changes will be some new standard features on the list.
