The 2016 Cadillac SRX is a replacement for the current generation SRX model that is nearing its life expectancy in the automobile market. This new midsize SUV is a luxury model that will feature changes in both its exterior and interior design schemes. The upcoming 2016 Cadillac SRX will be based on a new platform known simply as ‘Chi’.

From the images that are available we can tell that this car will be an exciting replacement that the public will just adore.
2016 Cadillac SRX: Redesign Exterior and Interior
Since the model is still in its testing phase, we don’t have solid information on which we can rely on. But based on some speculations and inside sources, we can expect an increase in size of this vehicle. People who prefer big cars will love the increased spaciousness that comes with a longer wheelbase. Apart from changes in dimensions, the grille, bumpers and both front and rear taillights are to be set in an exciting way with minor design modifications on each of those parts. We also have reports that Cadillac appointed a team to work on the body line of the 2016 Cadillac SRX to make it more visually appealing and provide better aerodynamics.
It is rumored that Cadillac might add another row as an option in this model. So, in addition to already existing two, this third row would allow more passengers on board. Seats are expected to be upholstered with leather and other interior features made of soft to touch plastic. The main changes, however, are noticeable with the increase of interior space and this revamped version will surely provide extra comfort and legroom for its passengers.
Technological upgrades include better connectivity options with Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and USB system along with a high-quality audio system. Safety features include a rearview camera, anti-collision airbags, parking sensors and navigation system.

Some rumors even indicate that the engine might get replaced in the future, and in its place a 4.5 litre V8 engine play come into play. Additionally, for the 2016 model year, SRX will most likely receive a new line-up of GM’s innovative Ecotec engines that offer better performance and increased fuel economy.
