2012 Cadillac SRX Luxury Car. 2012 Cadillac SRX brings enhanced features and updates that make it quieter and more refined – including the new sound-absorbing material strategically placed throughout the vehicle. The Base and Sport suspension systems have been revised to improve the ride quality.
The most significant change to the 2012 Cadillac SRX is the direct-injection 3.6-liter V6 engine that produces 308 horsepower and 265 pound-feet of torque. It is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission that features a Sport mode, and has a manual-shift capability that enables you to hold one of the intermediate ratios all the way to the engine’s redline.
Despite the increase in power to the 2012 Cadillac SRX, the direct-injected V6 is actually more fuel-efficient than its predecessors. For the front-wheel-drive SRX, it delivers EPA-estimated fuel economy of 17 city/24 highway mpg and 19 mpg combined (subtract 1 mpg in all categories for the all-wheel-drive model), on par with most of its competitors. There is also an “Eco” mode, which Cadillac says is good for squeezing out an additional 1 mpg. This engine is now capable of running on E85 fuel. More important, it can now run on regular gasoline, as many of the 2012 Cadillac SRX competitors require premium fuel.
For 2012, Cadillac has made ??a number of changes for the 2012 Cadillac SRX suspension setup. New suspension mounts, bushings and dampers have been added to address the noticeable impact harshness we observed in past models. The retuned ride is now much smoother, yet the SRX maintains its agile reflexes. The Performance Collection and Premium Collection trim levels come with the “Sport Active” suspension, which monitors changes in the road surface and adjusts the suspension accordingly. These higher trim levels also get a power-assisted variable-effort and speed-sensitive rack-and-pinion steering system. We drove the 2012 Cadillac SRX with both the standard 18-inch tires and the upgraded 20-inch tires and found both quite comfortable.
The 2012 Cadillac SRX interior is one of the better-looking ones in this class. There is a tasteful amount of wood and chrome accents that remind you of a classic Cadillac, while the full-color LCD display in the gauges and pop-up navigation screen bring you back to the modern age. A number of soft-touch materials are used, and the buttons have a solid feel and logical layout.
The 2012 Cadillac SRX offers all this, delivering not only a base model with a very competitive price but also a top trim with a sticker price under $50,000.
