2010 Cadillac SRX
It will come standard with the new 260hp 3.0 Liter V6. With a 300hp 2.8 Liter V6 Turbo as an option.
The same engine used in the Saab Turbo X.
I drove the 250hp version in a Saab 9-3 Wagon last month, and it was one of the smoothest engine I have experienced.
I am glad to see it used on other cars.
I will see for myself if it feels as good as it looks in a few days.
It shares its platform with the new Chevrolet Equinox and the upcoming Saab 9-4X
This is the Provoq concept from last year.
As you can see, it was pretty much the production model with just a few “auto show” modifications.

Wow!! I think the production version looks even better than the concept. Nice job GM. Another step in the right direction.
How was the turbo lag and low-end torque in that saab?
Kind of looks like an overgrown Vibe/Matrix. The upcoming CTS wagon/coupe are much more original and in line with Cadillac’s design philosophy.
I like it except for the tail lights. I think it is time to try something different.
I’m glad to see GM making some decent compact/mid sized cars for once. I just drove a Malibu and was actually impressed by its handling.
I could not feel any lag at all on the Saab.
Low end torque was also great.
Yeah…The tail lights are a bit odd but it looks good. Better yet, a one year old one can be picked up for about $15K.
The front end is kind of heavy, but this is a winner in design. And I like the taillights. That sharp outer corner gives a slight nod to the old Caddy tailfins.
how much will it cost?? ballpark…
Not sure how much it will cost. But the “old” one was based on the more expensive CTS platform. This one is not. It was supposed to be a cheaper model than the SRX at first.
But since they decided this would actually be the new SRX, I’m sure it won’t be cheap.
Especially with versions from Chevy, GMC and Saab coming out.
$37K to start….
“a one year old one can be picked up for about $15K”
Where? CarMax lists a 2007 with 31k miles for $22k
“Cadillac’s latest version of the SRX luxury crossover has LOTS of changes to it. This new SRX is based on the new TE (Theta-Epsilon) platform; which is not the same one underpinning the Equinox or Vue!…”
“Traction control is taken a step further on AWD models (XWD, which is RWD-biased performance AWD system) with the rear eLSD. In icy or wet conditions, the system can transfer up to 100 percent of torque to the wheel that has more grip. The eLSD also gives the driver enhanced control when cornering hard or completing a high-speed maneuver, such as a lane change, by momentarily applying more or less torque to either of the wheels to help the rear of the vehicle more closely follow the direction of the front wheels…”
“…TE is far, far from a cheap platform. That’s why you’ll likely never see it used on anything under $30K base.”
Looks good! I’m really liking the interior…
The interior style is good (if bland), but we’ll have to see about the quality of materials used. They seem to be cheap in this picture.
The snout is too much of an “in-your-face” face, but it somehow works on this station wagon. After all, American heterosexuals seem to like such inelegant, obnoxious grills, hence the Dodge Ram and its followers. Hey, you’re bankrupt so give ’em what they want.
The A-pillar design is nicely executed as are most other details. Good job GM.
Mr Vince ‘car genius’ Burlapp – this caddy does not use the same platform as the Equinox, its on an all new platform
