DETROIT -- Fresh off a top-to-bottom overhaul of its pickup and SUV lineup, General Motors is moving fast to sate growing consumer demand for crossovers.
Crossovers to spread across GM brands
Cadillac alone is working to add three crossovers to its lineup, including two slotted below the midsize SRX (to be named XT5 when a redesign hits showrooms in the spring) and one above it. Those are part of a well-telegraphed onslaught of new or redesigned models over the next five years, including an entry-level sedan and a likely convertible.
Chevy is shuffling and expanding its crossover lineup. A smaller next-generation Equinox, due out in early 2017, will make room for a new midsize crossover to be added to the lineup later that year.
Meanwhile, Chevy will launch redesigns of some of its highest volume cars over the next nine months, including the Malibu, Cruze, Camaro, Spark and Volt.
Buick in mid-2016 is expected to fill the sizable gap between its small Encore and full-size Enclave with the Envision crossover, which went on sale in China last year. Buick's car lineup is in for an overhaul, too, with a redesigned LaCrosse and Verano scheduled for next year.
