The Cadillac SRX enters 2012 with a greater combination of performance, technology and capability.
A new, more powerful 3.6L V-6 headlines the changes for 2012 and becomes the sole engine offered in the SRX. It is rated at 308 horsepower with efficiency-enhancing features including direct injection and continuously variable valve timing.
It also delivers 265 lb.-ft. of torque, giving the SRX a greater feeling of acceleration from a standstill, at low speeds and when passing. The 3.6L is matched with the six-speed automatic transmission, which features a driver-selectable Eco feature that alters the shift points for up to 1-mpg improved fuel economy in normal driving conditions.
Enhancements to the Cadillac 2012 SRX include standard Bluetooth phone connectivity on the Base model, a heated steering wheel on the Luxury, Performance and Premium Collections and door lock switches on the driver and passenger door panels. Also for 2012, SRX offers a new machined-face finish on the 20-inch wheels, which are standard on Performance and Premium Collections.
Attention to detail is the Cadillac script logos in the front door sill plates that illuminate when the doors are opened.
