Saab, Cadillac to Share SUV Platform, Engine

In another installment of Profiles in Badge Engineering Courage, Saab and Cadillac will share a new SUV platform, a new engine and several pints of What Now? That from the UK's Just-Auto, which assures GM is developing the two vehicles to be "very different and specific." As we reported eons ago, those will be the Saab 9-4x and Cadillac BRX (or thereabouts), built on GM's new Theta Premium platform, created from parts lifted from the current Theta platform (Chevy Equinox) and new Epsilon II (read: updated Saab 9-3, Chevy Malibu, etc.) They'll reach showrooms inside of two years to fight the small luxury SUV fight.
