The 2010 Cadillac SRX ($TBA) is the, uh, Cadillac of crossovers. Due to hit showrooms in mid-2009, the all-new 2010 Cadillac SRX features a completely redesigned exterior and is expected to be powered by the CTS' 3.6-liter V6 engine. The next-generation SRX is said to achieve "excellent driving dynamics and wet-weather traction," and appears to be just the right size for those wanting a non-car, non-SUV luxury vehicle.

The XV-LT is designed for two adults and two children, and offers granite counters, a convection microwave, a king-sized bed, an enclosed shower/bathroom, and more, while the two-person XV-JP offers features like a queen-sized bed, an inside cassette toilet, indoor shower, sink, and cooking facilities, just to name a few.
