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.
