Where do car buyers turn if they want a larger, versatile vehicle but require comfort, ergonomics and luxury as well? Cadillac, of course! Enter the Cadillac SRX. Arguably Caddy’s most versatile model, the Cadillac SRX continues the brand’s proud tradition of quality, comfort and luxury automobiles. Lets take a look.
The Cadillac SRX was first introduced in America in 2004 and has been continually improved, tweaked and tuned to provide the motoring experience befitting a Cadillac. The 2012 model is the recipient of some exciting new technology. The SRX is built on GM’s global Theta platform. It is available in a 5-door configuration for maximum load-bearing versatility. Power is transmitted to the front-wheels, providing stability and safety in inclement weather. For maximum traction, all-wheel drive models are offered as well.
The engine options are exciting as the SRX is the platform chosen by Cadillac to debut new, efficient engine technology. The 2011 model featured a 3.0L V6 with approximately 265 HP. For 2012, Cadillac is debuting an all-new 3.6L naturally-aspirated V6 which improves on the older engine in almost every respect. Power is up to nearly 310 horsepower. Torque rises to 260 foot pounds. These numbers ensure healthy performance, while achieving efficient fuel mileage as well. One transmission is offered but it is one of Cadillac’s best: a Hydra-Matic 6-speed automatic with optional Driver Control, allowing the driver to kick up and down the ratios as desired.
For buyers keen to explore green motoring, the new V6 will offer the ability to run on E85 Ethanol “Flex Fuel.” This is indicative of Cadillac’s commitment to providing unparalleled motoring luxury for the driver, along with a clean environmental conscience. The SRX proves that you can have an SUV, versatility, fuel economy and driver comfort in one convenient package.
