Cadillac SRX Michigan Interior

Inside the 2012 Cadillac SRX, even the details have details. This is evident in the cut-and-sewn accents on the instrument and door panels or in the polished chrome accents and available Sapele wood. It’s also apparent in the things you can’t see, like triple door seals that not only provide a watertight fit, but function to reduce wind noise passing over the vehicle’s body. There’s even a laminated coating in the windshield and front side window glass that helps prevent noise from entering the vehicle.

Cadillac crafts its interiors in available Sapele wood, a wood traditionally found only in fine guitars. Its grain is so deep and lustrous, upon close examination, it almost takes on a three-dimensional quality. In fact, our designers chose it because it reveals itself as well under the available soft LED ambient lighting as when bathed in sunlight from its available UltraView sunroof.

Improved 2012 Cadillac SRX

2012 Cadillac SRX Michigan

“For 2012 the SRX finally gets the engine it should have had in the beginning. The 3.6 puts out 308 horsepower, and it isn’t turbocharged, so the power comes on smoothly when you step on the gas.” – Jonathan Welsh, wsj.com

Seemingly sculpted from a solid block of steel, with an aggressive stance and jewel-like details, the 2012 Cadillac SRX serves up equal doses of refinement and exhilaration. Its new potent, yet remarkably efficient 308 HP, direct-injection V6 is the most powerful engine standard in any luxury crossover.  Bold, potent, refined and ingenious, the Cadillac SRX is a crossover that steadfastly refuses to follow.

Every detail has been thoughtfully considered, like the polished chrome accents, available Sapele wood trim and French-stitched seams on the door trim and available leather seating surfaces—all to give you a driver experience unlike any other.

YOU WALK INTO A ROOM WITH CONFIDENCE
SHOULDN’T YOU ENTER A HIGHWAY THE SAME WAY?

An all-new 308 HP, direct-injection V6 engine only seems excessive until you truly need it. The soaring mountain pass, the harried entrance ramp, the flirtatious driver’s road: All moments when you’ll appreciate the SRX’s 3.6 liters of superior motivation — the most powerful engine standard in any luxury crossover. And since torque is what matters most in day-to-day driving, you’ll feel its exceptionally wide torque band every time you press the accelerator. Yet, despite its brawn, this sophisticated power plant is remarkably efficient and requires only regular fuel, making it as responsible as it is exhilarating.

2010 Cadillac SRX

Under the skin, the 2010 SRX is about as different as a redesigned model can be from its predecessor. It’s still a midsize five-seat crossover, but it’s on a new front-wheel-drive platform, replacing the rear-drive version used from 2004 to 2009. All-wheel drive is still optional, but the new foundation promises mileage improvements and only a minor loss of passenger volume despite a decrease in the vehicle’s length. The SRX competes with the Acura MDX, Lexus RX and Lincoln MKX.

 Bay City Saginaw Cadillac

Exterior
The SRX at once looks taller, if not higher off the ground, than the previous generation, yet it bears a resemblance to the Cadillac CTS sport wagon. The roofline slopes downward as the beltline rises, resulting in side windows that narrow to a squint by the time they end at the D-pillars. Cadillac has long used vertical taillights as an homage to the old tail-finned designs of the 1950s, but the SRX’s taillight lenses rise in a peak to form little three-dimensional tailfins.

Similar to the second-generation CTS, the new SRX has been rounded off a bit, though it still has the signature edges and facets and a prominent grille. It likewise adds chrome vents behind the front wheels that incorporate side marker lights. The standard wheels are 18 inches in diameter. Twenty-inchers are optional.

Interior
The interior is as big a jump from the previous generation as was the current CTS’ interior. The SRX’s design now emulates the sedan’s, complete with an optional navigation touch-screen that rises from the dashboard. The materials are much improved, and the gauge lighting is top-notch.

The backseat accommodates three passengers and had 60/40-split, folding backrests that extend the cargo area forward. Both a power liftgate and an adjustable cargo-floor anchor system are available.

Convenience and entertainment technology includes standard Bluetooth connectivity and optional hard-disk-drive music storage, plus a dual-screen backseat video system.
