Cadillac Enhances Technology and Design on 2013 SRX
The 2013 SRX's enhanced technology also contributes to safety, with Cadillac's new Driver Awareness and Driver Assist technology packages. Their features include Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Cadillac's Safety Alert Seat technology, Automatic Front and Rear Braking, Adaptive Cruise Control and more, using radar and other technologies to help avoid collisions.
Interior and exterior design updates further distinguish the 2013 SRX, while active noise cancelation technology helps provide a quieter driving experience. It goes on sale this fall.
"The 2013 SRX illustrates the Cadillac philosophy of never leaving well enough alone," said Don Butler, vice president of marketing for Cadillac. "The enhancements for the SRX – including CUE – are examples of how we're developing advanced technologies and pushing them consistently through the Cadillac portfolio. They are also some of the key elements of the all-new XTS luxury sedan and ATS compact sedan, which will expand the Cadillac portfolio this summer."
Since its redesign in 2009, the SRX has established a strong visual signature for Cadillac in the luxury crossover segment. The 2013 SRX refines that appearance with a new design for the front upper and lower grilles that conveys greater depth and the brand's attention to detail. The front fender vents are new and incorporate LED light pipes.
Three new exterior colors are offered: Evolution Green Metallic, Glacier Blue Metallic and Silver Coast Metallic. Also new is the SRX's range of 20-inch wheel designs, including new chrome and polished aluminum wheels for the Performance and Premium Collections – the top two option packages.
The SRX is offered in FWD and Advanced AWD models, each powered by a 3.6L Direct Injection V-6 that was added for 2012. It is rated an SAE-certified 308 horsepower (230 kW) and 265 lb.-ft. of torque (358 Nm).
