Starting in August, the 2012 Cadillac SRX will hit dealerships with an asking price of $36,060, plus an $875 destination charge. The price is a slight jump from the $34,615 asking price of the 2011 model.
As reported before, gone are both the not-so-celebrated 265 horsepower 3.0L LF1 V6 and the 300 horsepower turbocharged 2.8L LP9 V6 engines. Replacing them will be the much more favorable 3.6L LFX V6 engine that will be good for 308 horsepower and is equipped with an Eco mode — which tones performance down to conserve fuel. The engine can also be found in cars like the Cadillac CTS and Chevrolet Camaro, as well as several other models in the GM family. Fuel economy has yet to be announced, but we at least expect it to be better than the 22 MPG highway rating observed from the SRX Turbo.
Also for the 2012 model, Bluetooth connectivity on all models will be standard across the board. There’s also a new Xenon Blue Metallic paint option, new interior color options and a revised 20-inch wheel pattern, among a few other revisions. Full details are in the press release below.
