2010 Cadillac SRX

By Bill Roebuck

 

Surprisingly, Cadillac used the Toronto Autoshow to boast about a small engine. That’s right, Cadillac! In fact, this redesigned Caddy crossover offers the smallest engine the marque offers in any of its North American products. 

 

The 2010 Cadillac SRX offers a choice of two high-tech six-cylinder engines that are new to the marque. A new, 3.0-L direct injected V6 is standard; optional is a new, 2.8-L turbocharged V6. Both engines employ technology that helps produce strong performance that is typical of larger-displacement engines. Direct injection enables a 25 per cent reduction in hydrocarbon emissions. Highway fuel consumption of about 8.5L/100 km is expected.

The optional all-wheel-drive system includes an advanced electronic limited-slip differential that distributes torque as needed from side-to-side along the rear axle, as well as from the front to rear axle. 

 

The SRX seats five and can tow up to 1,588 kg.
