Cadillac's lineup is looking better than it has in years, with the hot-selling CTS and the defacto standard for large SUVs, the Escalade. While the SRX crossover is an Autoblog favorite, it isn't experiencing the kind of sales success as many of its rivals.

Cadillac appears to have another crossover up its sleeve and the spy photographers at KGP caught it testing with the Saturn Vue on which it's based. With the two vehicles next to one another, it's easy to see the similarities, but since the new model is destined to be a Cadillac, it's likely the two vehicles will share very few body panels. Although the BRX is heavily camo'd, we can see more angular lines, including a hard crease across the Caddy's profile, and the Vue's rounded rear appears to be gone as well.

The BRX will likely serve as Cadillac's answer to the Acura MDX, Lincoln MKX, and Lexus RX350, and is expected to go on in 2009 as a 2010 model with the 3.6L engine found in the CTS and STS.

      Does anyone else think that Cadillac's new names are downright retarded? BLS...BRX...what's next, a turbo version of the BLS named the BLT ? I know that a lot of companies use these kinds of names these days, but at least all the others flow well.

        i don't believe that GM has officially announced this vehicle, so who know if it will be even called the brx. that could just be an internal project name like gmt900

      I was thinking the same thing about this BRX being an entry-level luxury crossover. Hopefully it won't weigh a ton of BRX like many GM crossovers.

      The SRX isn't selling because it really isnt that attractive after the rear doors, the interior is not CTS great and it weighs too much with bad space efficiency.

      The BRX is not based on the Saturn Vue. The BRX is based on the TE platform. This platform is a mix of Theta and Epsilon. It's an AWD platform.
