The Cadillac SRX enters 2012 with a greater combination of performance, technology and capability, building on the momentum of record-setting sales and more conquests from import owners in the mid-luxury crossover segment.
Retail sales were up 17.7% in the first half of 2011 -- a notable feat considering 2010 sales were up more than 150% for the year.
A new, more powerful 3.6L V-6 headlines the changes for 2012 and becomes the sole engine offered in the SRX. It is rated at 308 horsepower (230 kW) with efficiency-enhancing features including direct injection and continuously variable valve timing. It also delivers 265 lb.-ft. of torque (359 Nm), with peak torque achieved at a low 2,400 rpm and continuing through 5,300 rpm, giving the SRX a greater feeling of acceleration from a standstill, at low speeds and when passing. The 3.6L is also E85 ethanol-capable.
The 3.6L is matched with the Hydra-Matic 6T70 six-speed automatic transmission, which features a driver-selectable Eco feature that alters the shift points for up to 1-mpg improved fuel economy in normal driving conditions.
Other enhancements to the 2012 SRX include standard Bluetooth phone connectivity on the Base model, a heated steering wheel on the Luxury, Performance and Premium Collections and door lock switches on the driver and passenger door panels. The new model will continue to have door lock switches on the center console. Also for 2012, SRX will offer a new machined-face finish on the 20-inch wheels, which are standard on Performance and Premium Collections.

2011 Cadillac SRX Performance Collection Start Up, Engine, and In Depth Tour/Review
For the 2011 model year there are several model designations for the new
SRX including Base, Luxury, Performance, Premium, turbo Performance, and turbo Premium. The basic differences in the

up a performance for around $42-43k. In this video I give a full in depth

2012 Cadillac SRX Test Drive & Luxury Crossover Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/cadillac/srx/2012/ Cadillac vehicles and luxury
have always gone hand and hand. The 2012 Cadillac SRX takes luxury into the
crossover segment. The first generation while providing tons of luxury
stuck out like a sore thumb due to its dated looks. But for the 2012 model
year Cadillac totally redesigned the SRX from the ground up and it became
an instant hit. The 2012 Cadillac SRX blends the best of both worlds with
its styling. The SRX looks like a cross between a wagon and an SUV. And
this is a good thing since Cadillac makes both a stunning SUV in the
Escalade and maybe the best looking wagon ever in the CTS-V wagon. Up front
the SRX sports the signature Cadillac emblem and chrome grill. The
headlights have a really cool shape and are accented by daytime LED lights
which is a must for a modern luxury vehicle. Combined with a sloping roof
line and massive rims; the 2012 Cadillac SRX is a real eye pleaser. With a
base price of $35,985 the SRX is the perfect choice for a luxury crossover
Powering the 2012 Cadillac SRX is a direct injected 3.6 liter V-6 engine
that produces 308 horsepower and 265 lb-ft. of
torque. The transmission is a smooth shifting 6-speed automatic. Fuel
economy is pretty good at 17 MPG in the city and 24 MPG on the highway. The
SRX is available with an Advanced AWD system that features torque vectoring
and a rear electronic limited slip differential. These features help keep
you safe by sending power to the wheels that need it the most, but these
systems also provide enhanced vehicle control which add to the luxurious
On the inside the 2012 Cadillac SRX offers tons of luxurious features and
amenities. The drive is bathed in supple leather surfaces and top notch
Sapele Wood trim which is usually reserved for use in high-end guitars. It
is a great environment to be in. The steering wheel and shift knob are both
wrapped in leather. The driver and front passenger get comfortable leather
seats that are not only adjustable but they feature heating and cooling
options. But maybe the best part of the 2012 Cadillac SRX is the UltraView
sunroof which spans almost the entire length and width of the roof. There
is also a BOSE 5.1 Surround Sound Stereo unit for your listening pleasure.
Other features include Navigation and push button start. The 2012 Cadillac
SRX is the ultimate luxury crossover SUV.

Cadillac CUE Infotainment System -- Car Video Review of the Cadillac User Experience
The Cadillac CUE stands for Cadillac User Experience and it is the next
generation data and entertainment control system that will be featured in
new Cadillac vehicles like the ATS, XTS, and 2013 SRX. This latest
generation of infotainment adds connectivity and user interface into one
easy to manage system. The CUE will be the centerpiece of all future
Cadillac interiors. With CUE the operator will be able to control various
applications including audio, phone, navigation, heating, and air
The home screen is nicely integrated into the dash and features a large
8-inch LCD touch screen. The screen also provides something called tactile
feedback which is essentially a pulse that is returned when you touch a
button. The storage bin located behind the control panel allows you to
plugin in your mobile phone which is then operated via Bluetooth through
the CUE system.
As an additional option, the 12.3 LCD gauge cluster will replace the
regular analog gauges like speedometer and tachometer with a full
customizable set of data readouts. There are 4 different screen layouts
that mix the vehicle data you choose. On the steering wheel there are
integrated controls to manage the LCD gauge cluster, any apps, or
practically any system the CUE manages.
The Cadillac CUE system operated like a smart phone or tablet in many ways.
You can download various applications that can be integrated within the CUE
interface. All the favorites are included like Pandora, Sirius XM Satellite
Radio, OnStar, and more. The 3-D navigation offers turn by turn
instructions and you can also get real-time weather reports. The CUE system
features voice recognition which adds to the ability to control the entire
system hands free.
The Cadillac User Experience aims to deliver a very customized and tailored
interface that pushes forward the Cadillac brand image. The CUE employs
many of the gestures commonly used on today's most popular smart phones and
tablets meaning you will be able to understand and navigate your way
through the system.
