2015/2016 Cadillac SRX Features These Three Grille Options: Feature Spotlight8
The second-generation SRX has become the staple in Cadillac’s lineup, becoming the brand’s best-seller in short time. As the vehicle enters its last model year of production, we would like to reflect on what we feel are unknown details of the midsize crossover. Take, for instance, the fact that the 2015 and 2016 SRX offer a choice of three grilles, including:
The stock grille features a chrome surround and a black pattern on the inside, delivering a classy and balanced appearance
The optional Touring grille features a chrome surround and a chrome pattern on the inside, delivering an even brighter appearance than the Standard grille ($580, RPO code SJ9)
The optional Sport grille features a chrome surround with a black pattern on the inside, delivering a very sport appearance ($580, RPO code 5XR)
The trio of grilles is noteworthy since that’s more OEM grille options than any other Cadillac model to date. Note that since the Theta-platformed SRX hasn’t been updated to wear the new Cadillac logo, all three grilles feature the outgoing Wreath and Crest badge.
Which of the three grilles is your favorite? Talk to us in the comments.

I’d probably go with # 2.
I like the sport grill , the bottom section should be black as well . I still like the wreath surrounding the crest though .
I wouldn’t take any of them… like all 3 cadillacs I’ve had I would order an e&g Classics grille and turn heads coming down
E&G Classics Cadillac grilles look like cheap, ghetto knockoffs of already cheap, ghetto looking grilles.
since when is stainless steel cheap? or a grille averaging $800 in price ( over 1k for escalade ) … what are the OEM grilles made of?
So it shoulders on to the ’16 MY . And sales in China are high . A money maker for sure . And I totally agree with you ajmax513 . If it is still selling in ’16 when does the XT5 hit showroom floors ? I read that it was coming in ’16 as a ’17 model !? Inter-Web confused today !
Cleaning out the GM parts bin, nothing more.
All are pretty average…and not sure how the Sport Grill makes it look sporty? Blacking out the middle of the grill, with still a chrome wreath, and the lower air dam still chrome, nevermind most of the other parts still sporting chome? Basically looks like a black plastic grille , and GM charging $580?
At least make it into an appearance package with a couple other things blacked out/no chrome (ala Lexus RX F sport). Updated wheels etc. Such a package probably was the plan at some point, which is why they have a bunch of these soon to be useless parts gathering dust in the first place.
The Escalade vs Escalade Platinum (current and last Gen) did it right…yes, different grille, but a whole different front end to go with it.
Luxury grill all chrome looks rich like a cadillac should
