2011 Cadillac SRX

When a manufacturer releases a new vehicle they’re obviously hoping for the best when it comes to sales. Of course some models sell better then others, as do certain models equipped with certain features. Take Cadillac’s SRX crossover for example. When the redesigned SRX was introduced in 2009 one engine configuration that consumers could opt for was a 2.8 liter turbocharged V6. It put out a respectable 300 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque, but unfortunately was not a big seller amongst consumers according to dealership reports. In fact less than 10 percent of buyers opted for this engine. Combine that with a sub-par fuel economy ratings of 15 mpg city and 22 mpg hwy and it’s no wonder that GM has decided to finally kill it off. The sole power plant for the Cadillac SRX will now be GM’s 3.0-liter V6 that puts out 265 hp and 223 lb-ft of torque. Not a stump puller by any means, but with fuel ratings of 18 city / 25 hwy, it makes the Cadillac SRX a bit more attractive to consumers.
