Dubai, United Arab Emirates – Cadillac’s all-new midsize luxury crossover, the 2010 SRX, will hit Middle East showrooms in October 2009. With a completely new design, a more efficient and high-technology engine and comprehensive safety features, the 2010 Cadillac SRX will certainly appeal to the region’s most discerning crossover buyers.
The practicality and advanced technology of the 2010 SRX are combined with Cadillac’s bold and distinctive design and craftsmanship to create an all-rounder vehicle emblematic of Cadillac’s art and science philosophy.
The exterior features a multi-piece shield grille and Cadillac’s iconic vertical headlamps giving SRX a sporty profile, while an integrated spoiler on the rearward edge of the roof extends the sleek lines and improves aerodynamics. Inside the new SRX, technical precision blends with old-world craftsmanship. Hand-cut-and-sewn coverings on the instrument panel and ambient lighting details convey a finely tailored cabin. An integrated center stack houses controls for climate and audio systems, while the navigation system rises from the center of the instrument panel.
Performance and safety are enhanced by an available all-wheel-drive (AWD) system that is designed to optimize vehicle handling and stability in all driving conditions.
Eighteen-inch wheels are standard on the 2010 SRX while 20-inch wheels are available. They are pushed to corners to deliver a nimble, responsive driving experience. The car seats five, with generous occupant and cargo room, and can tow up to 1,587 kg.
The 2010 SRX is designed for efficient performance, including a high-tech 3.0L direct injected V-6 engine new to Cadillac, delivering 265 hp (net) at 6950 rpm and 302 Nm (net) of torque at 5100 rpm. Direct injection enables a 25-percent reduction in hydrocarbon emissions, while the Hydra-Matic 6T70 six-speed automatic transmission helps save fuel by lowering the engine’s rpm at constant highway speeds.
The 2010 SRX also features numerous advanced electronic systems, including a “pop-up” navigation screen with three-dimensional imaging; adaptive forward lighting that swivels the headlamps in synch with vehicle steering; power liftgate with adjustable height setting; integrated hard disc drive for audio storage and a dual-screen system for rear entertainment.
The SRX’s safety features are designed to protect occupants before, during and after a crash. A strong body structure and chassis that absorbs crash energy is complemented by the use of martensitic steel in the fully enclosed rocker sections, while additional safety features include standard head curtain side air bags, standard front seat-mounted pelvic/thorax side air bags, front safety belts with dual pretensioners and load limiters, rollover mitigation sensors, a pedal release system, trailer stability assist.
