The Cadillac SRX was totally redesigned for the 2011 model year. The SRX uses a lighter car/crossover platform, and is powered by smaller, more efficient drivetrain options.

Available in either FWD or AWD versions, the Cadillac SRX is powered by either a 3.0 litre V6 which produces 265 hp @ 6,950 rpm and 223 lb-ft of torque @ 5,100 rpm, or a 2.8 litre turbocharged V6 which churns out 300 horsepower. Both engines feature technology that helps produce strong performance that is typical of larger-displacement engines, but with greater fuel economy and lower emissions. The Cadillac SRX FWD models with the 3.0L engine are EPA-rated at 25 mpg on the highway.

The power is sent to the wheels (on both the FWD and AWD models) through a six-speed automatic transmission. Although the 2.8 litre model is fitted with a different 6-speed unit to the one found in the 3.0 litre model.

The Cadillac SRX has a wide stance, minimal overhangs and wheels pushed to corners. Eighteen-inch wheels are standard and 20-inch wheels are a cost option.

The Cadillac SRX seats five and delivers generous occupant and cargo room; it can tow up to 3,500 pounds (1,587 kg) depending on the drivetrain option.

The Cadillac SRX is designed to protect occupants before, during and after a crash. A strong body structure and chassis that absorb crash energy are complemented by martensitic steel in the fully enclosed rocker sections. Martensitic steel is one of the strongest available and its use in the rockers helps protect against intrusion during a side-impact crash while also helping maintain the structure during front and rear crashes.

Additional safety features include standard head curtain side air bags, standard front seat-mounted pelvic/thorax side air bags, front safety belts with dual pretensioners and load limiters, rollover mitigation sensors, trailer stability assist and OnStar.
