TruckTrend: 2010 SRX 2.8L Turbo


Recommended Posts

Though they share the same three-letter moniker, Cadillac's all new SRX is such a significant departure from the first generation, it is an entirely different vehicle. It's shorter, stubbier, less wagon-looking, with visual cues pulled from big brother Escalade. Yet it's decidedly not a truck; gone are the CTS-based, rear-drive platform and options like third-row seating and the 4.6-liter Northstar V-8.

Instead, the 2010 SRX is pure crossover and aimed squarely at the market's 800-pound gorilla, the Lexus RX 350. The SRX apes Lexus this time around, offering a two-row, five-passenger SUV based on a new front-/all-wheel-drive platform shared with the SAAB 9-4x. SAAB also shares the torque-vectoring AWD system and electronic LSD it developed with Haldex.

What has Cadillac done right? Depends whom you ask. Our staff is split on Cadillac's latest exercise in art and science. For some the SRX made a clean transition from the Provoq concept vehicle. "This crossover has attitude, something the Lexus will never match," says Lassa.
