Utilizing information provided by Cadillac suppliers, Reuters says that Cadillac is preparing two more crossovers that will bow after its current product initiative is complete. According to the report, a year after the next SRX arrives in 2016, a pair of CUVs will be unveiled that will bracket it in size, and they'll be headed for the US and Chinese markets.

That is years away, though. For now, the company's attentions are on the nearly here CTS and ELR range-extended coupe, the next Escalade SUV (shown above), an ATS coupe, and the range-topper that will sit above the XTS. That, and possibly an even more impressive range-topper that promises to be the mean and majestic super-luxe unicorn Cadillac we've been dreaming about for more than a decade now.

In response to the issue of how German crossovers might be having an impact on Cadillac's future plans, a company source said - rightly, we think - "we don't need to duplicate the Germans." That doesn't mean, however, that it can't wade deeper into a market segment that the Germans are making a ton of money in. In fact, and since everyone is doing it, we'd be surprised if Cadillac didn't, even if it won't happen for another four years.

      I don't know how people buy a vehicle that cant see the hood. All I know is that I will NOT.

      Note to GM, you don't need body cladding to camouflage your vehicles because no car maker in their right mind would copy your out-dated designs. Just thought you would like to know.

          Complete trash that happens to win most comparison tests and looks better than the unimpressive German crap that clueless yuppies like you waste your money on.

        Outdated designs? You mean, like how BMW is just cluelessly cranking out half-assed Bangle clones that weigh too much and appeal mostly to Lexus buyers?

      Until Cadillac beats them at their own game, it seems a bit presumptuous to say "we don't need to duplicate the Germans." Especially given how they have used BMW's 3 and 5 series as a benchmarks for the ATS and CTS. Also, Cadillac's new V Sport trim seems to be modeled after BMW's M Sport trim. There's no shame in emulating a master, and the Germans indisputably hold the crown when it comes to luxury vehicles. You're coming out with some impressive vehicles, Cadillac, but save the bravado for when it's more deservedly appropriate.

      The current SRX had $5000 on the hood in incentives last month, leading the industry. Impressive...... BD

        Cadillac is having its greatest success, as far as sales figures, with the SRX. It's far outselling their other models. The CTS and the XTS have/had $5000 rebates plus $1,000 loyalty or conquest bonuses.

          The bottom line again, eh? Jesus. I was commenting that CUVs are the least interesting vehicles produced. Neither fish nor fowl. CUV buyers are like Toyota Corolla owners; they don't care about driving.

        How does Lincoln's sales compare to 1990?

          @axiomatik
          Decided to look it up. Lincoln sales: 1990 - 233,730 2012 - 82,150 (65% decrease) For comparison's sake, here are Cadillac's numbers: 1990 - 268,850 2012 - 149,782 (44% decrease) Of course, in 1990, the market was vastly different. Lexus (and Acura and Infiniti) was barely a blip, having just been launched a few years prior. BMW was a niche player, with just 3 models (and more sporting than luxurious). Audi was practically nonexistent in the US, basically a German Saab.

      I was just thinking this the other day on my way to class when I saw an SRX roll by. I thought that there weren't many Cadillac crossovers available and wondered if that would change. I guess now I know...Not sure its a bad or good thing, I'm indifferent really. Love Cadillac and the direction they are headed.

      Wait, don't tell me. Solid rear axle, barely functional 3rd row and back windows that roll almost halfway down. How'd I do?
