We're playing Concentration this morning at TheCarConnection.com. Below this post, you'll see pics of the 2010 Saab 9-4X
--and here, you have the 2010 Cadillac SRX. Can you spot the differences?
OK, time's up. For starters, this Caddy prototype has a body-colored A-pillar, which also appears to be a little more upright than that on the Saab, too. On the Saab shots, the grille is exposed; here, the front end's covered, but even the cooling vents in its chic little outfit are shaped like Cadillac shapes, with a broad grille and vertical headlamps.
This Caddy running mule is riding on 255/55R-18 tires, and our sources say it weighs more than 4,000 pounds. It sits about 195 inches long and 76 inches wide--nearly the same dimensions as the current Cadillac SRX.
That detail brings up the swirl of naming rumors surrounding the car. Initially, sources had been spreading around the letters BRX. Now it's assumed that this vehicle, which was called a Provoq as a concept at last year's Detroit auto show, will inherit the SRX nameplate when it goes into production. The current SRX has been a slow seller and is due for replacement.
We'll know more before the 2009 Detroit Auto Show starts in January. Stay tuned.
