2010 Cadillac SRX Test Drive — The Pickup

I have a 2010 Cadillac SRX 3.0L Premium Crossover from Crest Cadillac in Plano for a weekend test drive review.  This is a 2nd Generation SRX, with the direct injection 3L V6 engine.  It has Cadillac’s Premium features, so this model is fully loaded.  Tony Griggs of Crest had it ready for pickup and went over the vehicle features with me.  Our friend Delivery Specialist Greg Vetrano was busy briefing Buyers on their new Cadillacs!

This model has as options (in addition to the Premium Model standard features):

  • Crystal Red Tintcoat premium paint $995
  • 20″ chrome Tech Aluminum wheels, which I find MUCH more attractive than the standard wheels $250
  • Entertainment Sytems, Rear Seat Dual-Player DVD with wireless Headphones and Remote. This is an in-dash DVD with rear-seat mounted flip-up 8″ diagonal screens, two 2-channel wireless headphones, auxiliary audio/video jacks, remote game plug-in, and DivX playback capability. $1,295

Here are Cadillac’s images of the wheels side by side; you decide:

Optional Wheels: 20" Chrome Tech Aluminum

Standard Premium Wheels: 20" Premium Painted Cast Aluminum Wheels

Here is a closeup of the wheel on the SRX:

The level of integration in the driver’s central video screen is impressive.  Here is an image of the navigation system video being repeated for easy review by the driver:

I am charmed to see the MPG analog gauge in the SRX.  These can actually be quite fun, to see how long you can keep the MPG maxed.  Of course the SRX also has a digital instant MPG and average MPG in the trip information, but the gauge is fun.

I will be posting articles about the 2010 Cadillac SRX through the weekend; please stay tuned!
