2012 Cadillac SRX Overview

Like all things, Cadillac has changed with the times, and part of the evidence to that assertion is 2012 Cadillac SRX luxury crossover.

The 2012 Cadillac SRX has a new 308-horsepower, 3.6-liter V-6 with direct injection outputs 265 pounds-feet of torque and is paired to a six-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive is standard, while all-wheel drive for better traction in harsh conditions is optional. Fuel efficiency ratings get a boost with Eco-mode, which changes shift points for more efficient driving, to 16-17 mpg in the city and 23-24 mpg on the highway. The SRX is available in base, Luxury, Performance, and Premium trims and competes with the Acura MDX, Lexus RX, and Lincoln MKX.

The exterior of the 2012 Cadillac SRX’s chiseled bodywork is embellished with chrome accents, Cadillac’s signature grille, and vertical LED taillights which give the SRX a bold, yet sleek appearance. Xenon high-intensity discharge headlights and the Adaptive Forward Lighting feature that automatically swivels the lights in the direction of corners and turns help brighten up the unknown and are optional. A power liftgate can be programmed to reach a certain height so it doesn’t scrape the ceiling of your garage and 20-inch wheels are also optional, while heated power side mirrors and 18-inch wheels are standard.

Because it’s a Cadillac, you can expect first-class refinement with the interior. An available slide-up touch-screen navigation and entertainment system includes voice recognition, 3D color imaging for enhanced viewing, pause-and-play radio (which is like a DVR for music), 40GB hard drive, SiriusXM radio, NavTraffic, and iPod/Bluetooth® connectivity. A 10-speaker Bose sound system with USB port is standard, while a heated steering wheel, ventilated front seats, backseat entertainment system, leather upholstery, and wood trim are optional.

The 2012 SRX also offers plenty of utility with an available U-Rail system and cargo fence, as well as rear seats that fold flat to create more than 60 cubic feet of cargo space. The optional sunroof covers 70 percent of the roof and has tilt/sliding capabilities.

In terms of safety, the SRX has front, side-impact, and side curtain airbags, an electronic stability system, all-disc antilock brakes, OnStar automatic crash notification, and front and rear Ultrasonic Park Assist.
