For 2008, the Cadillac SRX midsize SUV undergoes only minor changes, including standard remote start and tire pressure monitoring system on all models.
The SRX is available with a choice of 3.6-litre V6 with five-speed automatic transmission, or 4.6-litre V8 with six-speed automatic transmission, each in a single trim line. Both models can be optioned with all-wheel drive and with three-row seating.
Features on the V6 model include 17-inch alloy wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, privacy glass, fog lamps, heated mirrors, black roof rack side rails, power liftgate, variable intermittent wipers, rear washer/wiper, cargo cover, cruise control, auto-dimming mirror with compass, power express up/down windows, leather seats with eight-way power driver’s adjustment, 60/40 split-folding second-row seat, CD stereo with XM Satellite Radio, wiper-activated automatic headlamps, rear parking assist and OnStar.
The V8 model adds 18-inch alloy wheels with V-rated tires, heated mirrors with auto-dimming driver’s side, chrome roof rack side rails, Xenon headlamps with washers, heated steering wheel, integrated rear configurable storage system, interior wood accents, heated eight-way power front seats with memory, and six-CD stereo.
Optional features and packages can add such items as a panoramic sunroof, rear climate control, power-adjustable pedals, navigation system, trailer tow package and Magnetic Ride Control.
Slotting in below the Escalade, the SRX provides a roomy interior and cargo capacity but without the bigger SUV’s bulk. Headroom is excellent in all seating positions, and the interior is elegant and well-finished. The all-wheel drive system is a real full-time torque distribution variety, and the optional Magnetic Ride Control improves on what is already a smooth ride. The optional third-row seat is very tight and suitable only for children.
