2013 Cadillac SRX introduced ahead of the 2012 New York Auto Show

Cadillac introduced today the 2013 SRX and announced that the luxury crossover SUV will make its world debut this week at the 2012 New York Auto Show. As expected, the 2013 SRX will get the CUE in-vehicle user experience that features touch-screen controls similar to the most popular mobile devices.

Under the hood, the 2013 Cadillac SRX FWD and Advanced AWD models will feature a 3.6L Direct Injection V6 engine delivering 308 horsepower (230 kW) and 265 lb.-ft. of torque (358 Nm). For the 2013MY, the Cadillac SRX receives a new design that includes new front upper and lower grilles but also new front fender vents that incorporate LED light pipes.

Moreover, three new colors were added: Evolution Green Metallic, Glacier Blue Metallic and Silver Coast Metallic. The 2013 SRX also received new 20-inch wheel designs, including new chrome and polished aluminum wheels for the Performance and Premium Collections. The interior was also updated and features active noise cancelation technology helps provide a quieter driving experience as well as a new Light Titanium color.

Regarding the Cadillac CUE (Cadillac User Experience), this will be offered as standard on the 2013 SRX and the user will be able to pair entertainment and information data from up to 10 Bluetooth-enabled mobile devices, USBs, SD cards and MP3 players with a vehicle infotainment system that reduces complexity through customized information, voice commands and fewer buttons and larger icons.

As you may know already, the heart of the CUE is the eight-inch LCD multi-touch sensitive screen. The 2013 SRX’s enhanced technology also contributes to safety, with Cadillac’s new Driver Awareness and Driver Assist technology packages. Their features include Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Cadillac’s Safety Alert Seat technology, Automatic Front and Rear Braking, Adaptive Cruise Control and more, using radar and other technologies to help avoid collisions.
