For just over a decade the Cadillac SRX was the company’s mid-size luxury crossover SUV that was built and sold all around the world.
Engines were in the form of a 3.6 litre V6 or a 4.6 litre V8 mated to a 5 or 6 speed automatic transmission.
With the introduction of the second generation Cadillac SRX in 2010 buyers found that this new model had its own unique platform not shared with other Cadillac’s.
Engine choices were now a 2.8 turbocharged, 3.0 or 3.6 litre V6 mated to a 6 speed automatic transmission.
Safety improvements were a huge priority in the newer version of the SRX after front passenger death rates in the first were way above average. The car was awarded 5 out of 5 starts in almost all disciplines of test being let down by rollover like most SUV’s and tall vehicles.
Sales were pretty good for the SUV all the way until it was discontinued in 2017.
The model was eventually replaced by the 2 newer ranges of SUV by Cadillac, the XT5 and XT6.
