Cadillac chief marketing officer Uwe Ellinghaus has revealed some new details about their future lineup.

Speaking to Car & Driver, Ellinghaus confirmed the company is considering additional crossovers besides the SRX and Escalade.

The executive declined to go into specifics but said the company needs a small crossover to battle competitors such as the Audi Q3, BMW X1 and Mercedes GLA-Class. There's no word on when it could arrive but speculation suggests the model will be based on the Gamma platform that underpins the Buick Encore / Chevrolet Trax / Opel Mokka.

At the other end of the spectrum, we can expect a large three row crossover. Previous reports have suggested the model would be based on the Lambda platform - which underpins the Buick Enclave / Chevrolet Traverse / GMC Acadia - but Ellinghaus seemed to imply that isn't the case. As explained, "... expect future SUVS from Cadillac to be rear-wheel-derived, particularly big ones.” The magazine believes this could be a hint that the crossover will be based on the Omega platform that will underpin the company's highly-anticipated flagship.

Besides talking about all-new models, Ellinghaus confirmed the 2016 SRX will continue to ride on a front-wheel drive platform because they've had "tremendous success with the current car" and "front-wheel drive has advantages for the package, interior roominess and cost."
