New 2016 Cadillac SRX Elevates Style & Versatility


The new 2016 Cadillac SRX Crossover SUV at Dimmitt Cadillac St. Petersburg in Pinellas Park, FL elevates the concept of what a luxury crossover should be to new levels of refinement, style, luxury, and versatility. The smaller SUV segment generally referred to as “crossovers” is red hot. Buyers are attracted to the car-like driving characteristics of a crossover, as well as its ability to navigate places such as the downtown urban core with greater maneuverability than a larger SUV.

But they also want their crossover to have still enough room to accommodate both passengers and cargo without sacrificing too much interior space due to the vehicle’s smaller dimensions. And savvy car shoppers are also looking to save money on gas compared to larger SUVs.


Dramatically Styled For Today

The new 2016 SRX Crossover achieves all of these objectives and much more. The SRX doesn’t pretend to be just a “downsized Escalade.” Rather, it portrays its own unique personality that’s perfectly proportioned and poised. The SRX’s bold, angular dimensions don’t just look good on paper; their expressive design artfully combines aerodynamic efficiency with striking good looks. The SRX’s contemporary styling is both refreshingly modern while still paying homage to Cadillac’s signature styling elements, such as the large vertical LED taillights that offer just a hint of those big-finned Caddys of years past.

The SRX also makes a dramatic statement up front. Available HID headlamps with Adaptive Forward Lighting swivel in the direction of travel and are encased in a crystalline bezel that frames the SRX’s large, chrome-accented grille. Illuminated side fender lights and available premium 20-inch, 7-spoke aluminum wheels make the SRX stand out from the crowd, accentuating its sporty side. The result is a shape that’s simply stunning to look at no matter what the angle. You’ll also appreciate the convenience of the SRX’s height-adjustable power liftgate that opens effortlessly with the touch of your key fob.


Artfully Executed Interior

The 2016 Cadillac SRX also offers a new perspective on the clever use of interior space. The 60/40 split fold-down seats give you to flexibility to fold either one or both seats flat depending on what your cargo needs require. With both rear seats folded flat, you’ll have up to 61 cubic feet of cargo space for that antique chest of drawers you’ve had your eye on or that long-awaited family vacation.

Cadillac designers and engineers have taken great pains to execute an interior that swathes you in luxury and refinement. This is a Cadillac after all, and that means you’ll experience the highest level of masterfully crafted appointments. Built to compete with, and outclass, some of the world’s premier luxury vehicles, the SRX’s supremely quiet cabin is awash with the finest materials, all superbly fitted with the most exacting attention to detail. The available heated and ventilated leather seats are individually hand-stitched. Exquisite materials such as genuine Sapele wood resonate with your desire to enjoy the finer things in life. The fit and finish are superb and all switchgear is ergonomically positioned for effortless ease of use. From the leather-wrapped steering wheel and sports instrumentation to the available Ultraview Sunroof, everything about the 2016 SRX’s interior is simply gorgeous.


Tech That Makes Life Easier

We all live in a busy world where our time becomes more precious with every tick of the clock. Technology is everywhere and can prove to be quite useful to help us navigate through the many twists, turns, and demands that today’s modern life throws at us. Right on cue, Cadillac steps up the challenge by offering a comprehensive array of high-tech features that keeps your lifestyle rolling along without skipping a beat.

The heart and soul of the SRX’s extensive bag of techno tricks are collecively called “Cadillac CUE.” Cadillac engineers have bundled together the most useful assortment of technological features that keep you connected, informed, and entertained. A large, crisp 10.1-inch, a tablet-sized touchscreen display is your tech command center. You can pinch, swipe, and zoom just as you would on your tablet or smartphone.

Tactile, haptic feedback vibrates when you touch an icon on the screen. You can also activate phone calls, access 3-D navigation, weather, and traffic, and perform other tasks with the sound of your voice or via convenient steering wheel-mounted controls. Link up to 7 compatible mobile devices using the built-in 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot powered by OnStar®. You’ll also enjoy your personal soundtrack with the available SiriusXM® Radio, PANDORA® and HD Radio®. And your rear-seat passengers, especially the little ones, will love being entertained by the available rear-seat, dual-player DVD entertainment system with Blu-Ray® compatibility.

A Thoroughly Satisfying Driving Experience

The new 2016 SRX Crossover is born to be driven. Who says those trips to the shopping mall or dashing across town for a business appointment have to be boring? The SRX amps up the “fun to drive” department with an inspiring 308-hp, 3.6-liter V6 engine and 6-speed automatic transmission that combine energetic performance with exceptional handling that is precise and predictable. The reason is Cadillac’s available Continuously Variable Real-Time Damping suspension that adjusts to the road every two milliseconds. The available Advanced All-Wheel Drive and Auto-dry brakes are ready to take on whatever the weather or the road ahead has in store, keeping you in confident control.

Safety That Goes Above & Beyond

One of the most important considerations for anyone purchasing a vehicle today is safety. It’s no secret that our modern roadways are more dangerous than ever. Cadillac understands the many hazards you may encounter during your daily driving. So that’s why they’ve taken extra steps to make the 2016 SRX an exceptionally safe vehicle. They accomplish this with an assortment of remarkably advanced passive and active safety features designed to protect, forewarn, and prevent.

An ultra-high-strength safety cage is engineered to absorb the impact forces of an accident, and six multi-stage airbags are placed strategically throughout the cabin to help minimize injury. Radar sensors and cameras constantly monitor your vehicle and its surroundings to warn you of any potential threats. A class-exclusive Security Alert Seat actually vibrates to the right or left depending on the direction of a potential risk or hazard. Additional active safety technologies include

  • Side Blind Zone Alert
  • Front & Rear Park Assist
