Cadillac XT5 will replace SRX in early 2016

Cadillac has confirmed that its mid-size SRX SUV will be replaced in 2016 by an all-new model. This car will probably be badged as the XT5.

Yesterday Cadillac announced that its models will be gaining compatibility with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, except for the current SRX (above). That’s the bad news.

The good news is that the SRX “will move to an all-new generation in early 2016”, and every publication believes that the new car will be badged as the XT5.

Starting with new or heavily revised models, Cadillac will move its cars to a new naming scheme, with CT being the prefix used for sedans, coupes, wagons and hatches, while XT will denote SUVs. The Escalade is spared, though, and will keep its name.
