Cadillac’s 2011 SRX brings a more dynamic alternative to the luxury crossover segment. It features a dramatic design, inside and out, with more efficient engine choices.
The SRX rides on a wide track designed to deliver a nimble, responsive driving experience. It seats five, with generous occupant and cargo room, and can tow up to 3,500 pounds.
The SRX has a wide stance, minimal overhang and wheels pushed to corners. A bold accent line dives across the body side and culminates at a chrome front fender vent that incorporates a side marker lamp. An integrated spoiler on the rearward edge of the roof extends the sleek lines and improves aerodynamics.
The 2011 SRX is powered by a fuel-efficient direct injected 3.0L V-6 that delivers 265 horsepower and has a six-speed automatic transmission. Direct injection results in more power, better fuel economy and lower emissions. A 2.8L turbocharged V-6 is optional in the SRX. It delivers an estimated 300 horsepower.
The driving experience of the SRX blends the best elements of a sports sedan with the safety and excellent traction capability that crossover and SUV buyers value. The advanced AWD system provides excellent traction in slippery conditions like rain, snow or ice. In all conditions, the system bolsters other driving dynamics, such as cornering.
The rear compartment includes a Cargo Management System that features a U-Rail track system. It includes an adjustable cargo fence that segments the cargo area to contain smaller items, and also retracts beneath the load floor when not in use.
Base model estimated mpg: 18/25
Estimated starting price: $33,830
