General Motors already announced that the Provoq Concept will enter production. It will come to replace the mid-sized SRX starting 2009. The production version will be powered by a V-6 gasoline engine. Provoq wants to draw young female buyers who like crossovers more than SUVs and wagons.
The SRX "landed in that territory where it might be a crossover, but it might be a wagon, too," Taylor said. "That lack of clarity made it miss the sweet spot. The Provoq proportions and styling make it much more apparent that it is a crossover."
The five-seat Provoq draws styling cues from the 2008 CTS sedan, including the bold grille and glitzy headlight modules.
