Reports are suggesting that the 2015 Cadillac SRX will be offered with a significantly different design. This redesigned model will not be much different from the current offer but we still expect to see improvements making it more competitive in this market segment.
Crossover segment has become one quite busy place and we were able to see many great additions from almost every car maker. These vehicles are offering pretty high level of luxury and that is something every vehicle has to bring if its producer wants to take higher positions on the market.
2015 Cadillac SRX Release Date
At this moment the 2015 Cadillac SRX release date is still not known but we have a pretty good guess to offer. From various sources and together with data we have gathered this SUV could be offered as a redesigned model in mid 2014 while the dealerships will receive it during the fall of this year shortly after which deliveries will start.
We do not expect to receive anything revolutionary for 2015 model but the changes that will come could significantly improve market position of this vehicle and its sale results. With redesigned front end where most changes will be offered we will be getting more aggressive stance but still combined with a great and refined looks. This will bring it closer to the current offer in the lineup.
One thing where we would like to see more changes and we are pretty sure that other drivers agree is the powertrain. Under the hood of currently available 2014 model we are getting 3.6 liter V6 engine that offers pretty good 308 hp and 265 pound feet of torque. These are certainly decent numbers and allow this vehicle to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in about 7.0 seconds.
Power is transferred through a six speed automatic transmission to a standard front wheel but it is also available in all wheel drive version. It would be nice to see additional engines offered in lineup but also the hybrid version. Hybrid could solve high fuel consumption that many consider one of the biggest obstacles for this car. EPA tested it and results are 17/24/19 mpg in city/highway/combined drive cycle for front wheel drive model while the AWD version comes with 16/23/18 mpg.
Price of 2015 SRX
To keep this vehicle competitive Cadillac will need to keep its price similar to currently available mode. No official statements about this has been delivered but we do expect that the prices will go slightly up. If we all take this into one equation we are getting price tag of about $ 39.000 for a base model.
Interior of the current model brings great level of luxury but the 2015 Cadillac SRX should push it even further. Materials of higher quality will be used while the features like 8 inch touchscreen and CUE interface will be standard.
