2012MY Cadillac SRX Gets 3.6-liter Engine – rpmGo.com

2012 Cadillac SRX

General Motors has announced this week that its 2012 Cadillac SRX crossover will get a new standard engine, a direct-injected V6 3.6-liter, which will be the only one available in the U.S., replacing the older turbocharged V6 2.8-liter and the V6 3.0-liter.

This new power unit produces 300 hp and 260 lb.-ft of torque, which is 35 hp and 37 lb.-ft more than the aforementioned 3.0-liter that was used in the 2010MY. The new one delivers the same horsepower as the discontinued 2.8-liter, but it is down on torque by a mere 35 lb.-ft.

Aside from its new heart, the crossover will be offered as standard with Bluetooth (on all models), and heated steering wheel for the luxury, performance and premium trims. Customers that choose either the performance or the premium trim will also have the possibility to choose a brand new set of 20-inch rims.

The price list for the upcoming 2012MY Cadillac SRX will be revealed in the months to come, when the car will go into production.
