BRX and Diesel SRX for 2011

16 posts in this topic

Now what's the story with the BRX-will it seat 5 or 7 passengers? And will it be on the Saturn VUE's compact 106" wheelbase or the mid-size Equinox/Torrent's 112.5"? So basically, does this compete against Acura RDX or the Lincoln MKX and Lexus RX?

Isn't the SRX supposed to be left to die? After all, it might be cheaper to make a CTS-Allroad (AWD, increased ride height...) than to offer a SRX successor with different shetmetal, interior, and so on...

The SRX has been the only Cadillac vehicle regarded as class leading by the media. It would be stupid for GM to throw that away.

Thank you but that is reason enough for GM!!! It is not selling well because or well enough for them because of fuel economy. the DI engine would help with the 6 speed but....it does not get it!

I've said it before, and I'll say it again. The SRX is not dying off just yet.

Exactly...Alternative fuels, anyone? ;)

Lack of sales for the SRX has little to do with fuel economy -- it's in the same range as X5, ML etc. in terms of mpg. GM botched the launch pretty badly -- HORRIBLE interior the first year, product mix at launch (and long after) didn't match market needs, very constraining option packages until '06 or '07, missing simple en vogue options at launch (power tailgate) etc. Although these have been fixed since, it's too late to bring back the buyers who considered it and went elsewhere (and their friends who heard about it). Plus the not-quite-an-SUV exterior doesn't appeal to everyone.

Reskin it to make the front look more like an SUV, and put in the DI V6 and the SRX should be good for a few more years (even though the V8 is fast becoming outdated compared to BMW, MB etc.)

NOS2006, is this an opinion or do you have any info on this? I'd love to see the SRX live on (with timely updates, of course), but everything I've heard so far (other than the link in this thread) says it's going away around 2010.

You're right. The current generation SRX is going away in 2010.

Until GM publically makes a statement, anything 4 years from now is up in the air. They could cut it mid-program. However, the program still exists for a NG SRX and smaller BRX.

That's great to hear!! The high-volume part of the luxury crossover market is bigger than the BRX, so it would be silly to abandon that, and crossover buyers aren't generally interested in an Escalade. Any idea what platform the NG SRX is slated to be on?

See this link and go to GMT166 (although that name is given to the BRX on this site. It's incorrect):

http://www3.sympatico.ca/tedkrygier/future.htm

It looks as though the SRX will grow a bit, the BRX will be approximately the size of the current SRX, maybe a bit smaller, and there will be the CTS Wagon (CTW?) underneath those.

Oh, and there are going to be a few people on this site telling you I'm wrong, too. Just forewarning you. :AH-HA_wink:

Thanks for the info. If SRX is GMT166 on "Theta Premium", what's the BRX on?

No idea. I honestly don't know anything about the BRX.
