SRX a Strong Balance of Luxury, Performance and Technology

The 2016 Cadillac SRX was engineered to surpass expectations.

It’s matched with the Hydra-Matic 6T70 six-speed automatic transmission, which features a driver-selectable Eco feature that alters the shift points for up to 1-mpg improved fuel economy in normal driving conditions.

OnStar with 4G LTE and standard built-in Wi-Fi hotspot provides a mobile hub for drivers and passengers to stay connected. The hotspot remains on when the car is on and comes with a three-month/three-gigabyte data trial.

Cadillac’s luxury crossover is distinguished by striking angles and refined details, while its signature shield grille offers expressive depth. Flanking the grille are Cadillac’s iconic vertical headlamps, with light pipe technology and available adaptive forward-lighting technology that turns the lamps in the direction of the front wheels.

Light pipes also provide a glow to the front fender vents of the vehicle as well as the vertical tail lamps. The SRX has a wide stance, minimal overhangs and wheels pushed to the corners.
