SRX rear cargo

Hot Wheelz: Cadillac SRX Crossover

by Mike Tucker Jr 

The SRX is no longer a distant relative like Nas and Damian Marley.  It more than ever resembles the Cadillac family, while becoming bolder and brasher.  The redesign borrows attributes from the CTS leaving its hunky station wagon roots for a more compact and sure package. It no longer seats seven nor is weighed down by oversized engine; it is easier to park, maneuver and is quicker and better on gas. The refinement is still Cadillac with air conditioned seats, double-sized sunroof, Bose audio, pop-up navigation and a slick new cargo arrangement (see picture). 

It rocks out in all driving conditions. Trust me; I’ve tested it in our heavy snow fall last Christmas and in normal and rainy conditions. Cadillac makes good use of its new packaging and it is very capable vehicle. There is also a turbo engine available, but it only adds a few horses and the marked difference in speed is barely noticeable.  Cadillac has opened the road to aggressively compete with the BMW X5 and Acura MDX.  Raise your American flags for the SRX.
