Trying to step up its in-car entertainment a notch, Cadillac announced the addition of a Blu-Ray entertainment package to the options list for the 2013 SRX. The systems complements capabilities of the CUE, Caddy’s infotainment system, featuring two 8” flip-up rear screens, a gaming-style remote, and dual-play capability.
This option will basically give the rear passengers of the car a home theatre-like experience. The system will enable one of the rear passengers to watch a Blu-Ray DVD, while the other plays a game. Front-seat passengers will also be able to watch videos via the 8” touchscreen CUE display on the center-stack while the vehicle is in park.
Meanwhile the CUE allows all passengers to pair up to 10 Bluetooth-enabled devices at once, including mobile phones, SD cards, USBs, and MP3 players. So rear passengers can have their own playlists.
This system also comes with a rather interesting remote control. Shaped like a video game remote control, it mimics the layout of buttons to help young users access their favorite media more easily. A quick-reference sheet will also be provided so users know what each button on the remote will do.
The entertainment package will be available as an option on Luxury (with navigation,) Performance and Premium SRX trim models and will retail for $1,595.
