2016 Cadillac SRX OVERVIEW

A replacement for the Cadillac SRX midsize crossover, named XT5, is expected in 2016. Meanwhile, after a dozen years in the lineup, the premium SRX soldiers on for one more season. Seating five, the SRX offers up to 29.9 cubic feet of storage with its rear seat folded. The Cadillac CUE system uses an eight-inch color touchscreen. OnStar 4G LTE connectivity can provide a wi-fi hotspot right in the car.

What's New for 2016

Little has changed for the SRX’s final season on the market, except for deleting adjustable pedals from the Luxury edition.

Choosing Your Cadillac SRX

Under the SRX hood, a direct-injected 3.6-liter V6 engine produces 308 horsepower and 265 pound-feet of torque. The six-speed automatic transmission has a driver-selectable Eco feature that alters shift points to gain as much as 1 mpg. Fuel economy with front-wheel drive is estimated at 17 mpg city/24 mpg highway (19 mpg combined). All-wheel drive drops the estimate to 16/23 mpg (18 combined).

In addition to the Base model, three option collections are available: Luxury, Performance, and Premium. All-wheel drive is available on all but the Base model.


In Base trim, the SRX has leatherette seating, a leather-trimmed steering wheel, power eight-way driver’s seat, 60/40 split rear seat with pass-through, heated power mirrors, and dual-zone automatic climate control. Bose premium eight-speaker audio is standard, with HD radio and SiriusXM satellite radio. A USB port is in the storage bin behind the CUE faceplate, with another in the center console. Halogen headlights include a Twilight Sentinel, and the SRX rides on 18-inch aluminum wheels.

Luxury Collection

Quite a selection of additional features makes up the Luxury Collection, including a power liftgate, panoramic sunroof, rearview camera, leather-upholstered seats, power-folding mirrors, keyless access, rain-sensing wipers, auto-dimming mirrors, heated front seats, a heated wood-rim steering wheel, and ambient lighting. Chrome roof rails and a cargo shade are included, and 18-inch aluminum wheels have a bright machine finish.

Performance Collection

Moving up another step brings 20-inch aluminum wheels with bright machined finish and painted accents (chromed wheels available). High-intensity-discharge headlights incorporate an adaptive forward lighting system. Also standard: foglamps, adjustable pedals, and a Bose 10-speaker Centerpoint surround-sound system.

Premium Collection

Tri-zone automatic climate control and heated outboard rear seats are included in the Premium group. A Driver Awareness package adds a Safety Alert seat, forward collision alert, lane-departure warning, and high-beam control.

A Driver Assist package is available on Luxury, Performance, and Premium models, incorporating the Driver Awareness package plus adaptive cruise control, automatic collision preparation, and front/rear automatic braking.

CarsDirect Tip

Although the Base model is quite well equipped, we'd lean toward the Luxury Collection, which adds more than a few worth while items. For safety's sake, the Driver Assist package may also be added; it's not offered with the Base trim.
