Riding on GM's new TE (Theta-Epsilon) chassis, this new, smaller Caddy CUV will start production in May of 2009 at the Ramos Arizpe plant. The General will look to build about 75,000 units annually. Codenamed GMT166, Cadillac will share the TE platform with Saab for the 9-4x CUV (GMT168) that starts production in the fall of 2009.
Powertrain choices will surely include the 300hp, direct-injection 3.6L V6 found in the CTS. A 2.0L turbo-diesel variant is also in the works, however, it remains to be seen whether that model will be sold in US. Through the camouflage on this BRX prototype, we can see the production grill will follow the Provoq concept almost exactly, while the rear camouflage attempts to hide the true roof line - but we can tell the production green house will swoop downward in the rear just as it does on the Provoq. Besides the the dual exhaust outlets not integrated into the bumper, we don't see many differences between this prototype and the concept. It seems as if the tail fin tail lights of the concept may even find their way to production.
