Cadillac’s acclaimed crossover, the SRX, offers a compelling blend of luxury, convenience and excellent driving dynamics. A near 50-50 weight distribution, low center of gravity, outstanding powertrain combinations and the StabiliTrak stability control system help SRX deliver a fine balance between spirited driving performance and refined ride quality.
The cabin, completely redesigned in 2007, features elegantly handcrafted construction, thoughtful features and premium materials. In ’08 the SRX crossover adds more luxury and convenience to its acclaimed blend of driving performance, spacious versatility and passenger comfort, including Adaptive Remote Start system. This convenient feature starts the engine and can adjust cabin temperature to personal preferences, engage the defrosters, and activate the available heated or vented seats from up to 200 feet away.
The SRX features two engine combinations: the 4.6L Northstar V-8 VVT (variable valve timing) or the 3.6L V-6 VVT. Both are available in rear-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive configurations. The V-8 engine is sophisticated and technically advanced and generates 320 horsepower (239 kW) at 6,400 rpm and 315 lb.-ft. of torque (427 Nm) at 4,400 rpm. It is backed by a six-speed automatic.
The 3.6L V-6 VVT makes 255 horsepower (190 kW) at 6,500 rpm and 254 lb.-ft. of torque (344 Nm) at 2,800 rpm and is paired with a five-speed automatic. The transmission features Driver Shift Control (with clutchless manual shifting), electronically controlled engine braking and downgrade detection with brake assist.
