General Motors reveals the revised 2013 Cadillac SRX

Posted on Apr 4, 2012 by

Cadillac has published the first images and details of the 2013 SRX just hours ahead of its New York Auto Show debut. The 2013 features cosmetic changes such as a new front grille, fenders with LED inserts and redesigned 20-inch alloys. Interior changes are subtle. A new steering wheel and a redesigned gear knob are immediately noticeable. The instrument cluster is revised as well.

Cadillac has provided noise cancellation feature (that Cadillac claims makes for a quieter cabin) on the new SRX, two USB ports, a SD card reader, AUX jack and a 12-volt power socket. New shades of green, blue and silver  join the existing options on the color palette.

The crossover benefits from the introduction of Driver Awareness and Driver Assist packages. These assistance systems warn driver about rear cross traffic alert, automatic front/rear braking for crash avoidance, lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control and the safety alert seat.

In addition to ESP, traction control, four wheel disc brakes, four-channel ABS and blind spot assistance, occupant protection is improved in the form of –

  • Dual-stage frontal and side-impact driver and right-front passenger air bags
  • Head-curtain side-impact airbags
  • Rollover mitigation sensors
  • Front safety belt pre-tensioners and load limiters

Motive force is provided by a 3.6-liter V6 engine producing 308bhp and 358Nm of torque. It is paired to a 6-speed AT which in turn is connected to an all-wheel drive system (optional feature, customers can choose FWD instead).
