While Acura and Infinity have both done well with their crossover SUV type vehicles, Cadillac has also picked up some steam with theirs. Cadillac is usually known for its larger SUV vehicles including its very bling Escalade, however there other less stated vehicles that not only offer true Cadillac comfort, but also plenty of utility and capability, the SRX is one of them. The Cadillac SRX is a mix between a minivan and the drivability of a comfortable sedan. Add in plenty utility of an SUV and you have the SRX. Yes, the SRX tries to be a lot of things to many different people, but in the end, it does look very nice and performs well and it still is a Cadillac.
Under the Hood of the Cadillac SRX
The SRX comes in two main flavors, a rear wheel drive and an all wheel drive configuration. It should be noted that the SRX offers up to 7 passenger seating with the 3rd row that many SUV’s and minivans now make available. There are two engines available for the SRX and while both are peppy and more than adequate, we definitely recommend the larger 4.6 liter Northstar V8 engine that comes with a 6 speed automatic transmission. The smaller engine is a 3.6 liter V6 that produces a perfectly capable 255 horsepower.
Plenty of Amenities and Safety Features
Like all minivans, the Cadillac SRX does feature plenty of safety features and stability trac modes. The vehicle comes also with 17 inch wheels and plenty of nice amenities such as leather seating, power liftgate, Xenon headlights and much, much more. The price for the SRX ranges from about $37K to $49K depending on style and features. The SRX is a crossover and yes, it is a little pricey, but it does offer plenty of luxury and a great name plate.
