For the amount of crossover SUVs on the market, only some can be considered in the category of a luxury crossover and even then, it is difficult to fine those which measure up to the standards and the performance which is found among Cadillac’s line of vehicles. The crossover is an innovative way to make a vehicle that satisfies the necessities of not just a city and urban traveler, but also one that is capable of traveling long distances, rolling over terrain that is unstable and providing the space and comfort amenities that all passengers and drivers can enjoy. The latest models of Cadillac vehicles have been introducing technology and features that make the drive vastly safer and more luxurious at every turn, and the Cadillac SRX Denver is loaded with some new and unique items. Among the technology that has been placed into this crossover is new navigation system with touch screen access, a Bose noise cancellation system and the enormous, UltraView sunroof which covers most of the front and rear seating allowing for an unprecedented amount of sky-viewing since the invention of the convertible. Overall, there are a number of newly added technologies that allow for this vehicle to be above the typical luxury vehicle and it can be viewed at a Cadillac Dealership in Denver.

Cadillac SRX Denver Choices in Luxury and Performance
The performance of a vehicle relies heavily on its foundation, and in this case the foundation is set upon the wheels, the tires, and the suspension that holds the rest of the vehicle up and keeps it moving along the path. It should be noted that there are a few different trim options of this type of vehicle available other than its standard trim model. The different trims in order are the Standard, Luxury, Performance and Premium. On the Standard model, as on most of the models, there are some mechanical features that are in place across the board and that includes electronic safety precautions and some standard designs in the mechanics. The Standard trim option of the Cadillac SRX Denver has front-wheel drive. That front-wheel drive system utilizes a 6-speed automatic transmission which has the option of a manual shifting capability to move to and from different gears at the user’s desire. All-wheel drive is a higly prized feature and essential for those traveling in winter or four-wheel drive conditions, however, that option is not available on the standard trim version of the Cadillac SRX Denver. The other three trim versions have this availability and the all-wheel drive system includes electronic Limited Slip Differential which utilizes a variety of drive enhancing dynamics which make the driving safer and more effective.

Cadillac SRX Denver Wide Variety of Wheel Options
Since this is a luxury vehicle, the Cadillac SRX Denver is not without the various luxury items and aesthetics that are found on most all of the Cadillacs in production. At the frontal area of this model, there is a grille featuring Cadillac’s emblematical logo and that is surrounded by an intricate chrome trim. The remainder of the body is trimmed in a luxurious chrome and body color fashion and offers the viewer a pleasant sense of its dignity. Found standard on the Cadillac SRX Denver are 18 inch H rated Blackwall tires and these are all season tires which are useful all year round. When it comes to the Performance and the Premium trim options the tires are larger, with 20 inch Blackwall all-season tires and each of the models has a tire inflation kit so the worry of filling up tires when out and about is diminished. The several different tire options have different styles of appearance that can be attached. They are usually 7-spoke aluminum wheels which can be painted or they can have a bright machined finish as well. This is available on both the 18 or 20 inch wheel bases. The 6-spoke wheels are  available only on the 20-inch wheelbases and come with a bright chrome finish; available on only the higher trims.

Cadillac SRX Denver Safety and Stability
While safety is of a major concern, the Cadillac SRX Denver at Rickenbaugh Cadillac is equipped with some very fine features and that is expected among a class of this luxury. The 2014 SRX ahs built within it some very nice things that are coupled with the wheels and drivetrain construct. One feature is the tire pressure monitoring system which alerts the driver when tire pressure is too low. Another is StabiliTrac. That is an electronic stability control system which maintains the vehicle’s stability on the road by controlling how much braking is used and sometimes the engine if necessary. This can prevent a rollover or loss of control through the use of braking. Not only is the Cadillac SRX Denver a luxurious option but its performance on the road is above the typical crossover SUVs on the market.

The Cadillac SRX Denver is the more car-like crossover in its class. It has a chiseled and glamorous exterior that holds its own next to the Escalade. When driving home to see the family this winter, they will sure to be impressed with this Cadillac. The colors of the Cadillac SRX are all new this year with the Graphite Metallic, Terra Mocha Metallic and the Sapphire Blue Metallic. The interior of the Cadillac SRX is contemporary with the fresh trims and material combinations including the new Carmel interior with Ebony accents. Among its Cadillac peers the SRX is more focused on versatility and space than it is in performance.

Cadillac SRX Denver Comfort
The Cadillac SRX has only two rows of seating but it’s better that way because then each person has there space. There is also extendable thigh bolsters in the front seating which most adults seem to like. The driving position is upright but well contoured for comfort. The backseat passengers will not be disappointed either, the long moon roof makes for a more open feel. The ride is not pillow soft however the crisp handling makes the ride not feel as jarring. If you are worried about the noise, you don’t need to with the new active noise cancellation system. This system uses a microphone to detect noise and counteracts harshness. Even without this system the SRX is a fairly quiet ride perfect for a short commute or the long road trip. The Cadillac SRX replaced the CUE interface last year with the eight inch capacitive touch screen.

Cadillac SRX Denver Safety
The Cadillac SRX has some of the most impressive safety features for occupant protection. The Cadillac SRX Denver earned top five star ratings from the federal government and the Top Safety Pick status from the IIHS. The radar camera, sensor based safety systems along with adaptive cruise control, cross traffic alert, automatic front and rear breaking assist and even a safety alert seat. The Cadillac SRX Denver doesn’t stop there; there is also the GM’s OnStar that is included for the first year, free! An additional feature is the remote access with your smartphone; all you need is the app. Which let’s face it would come in handy. In most other vehicles these warning systems would vibrate the steering wheel; the Cadillac SRX on the other hand has a twist. When there is a warning it sends a shiver through the driver’s seat cushion, which is a smoother alert that a vibrating steering wheel. The cool part is that is triggers the side of the cushion that has the alert. So if you start crossing the yellow line on the right side the shiver will come on the right side of the cushion. There is only been one issue that drivers have found which is when you look over your shoulder… the visibility is minimal. Although there are the camera sensors there to assist is the visibility, depending on your height the lane changes may not be so confident as in other cars.

Cadillac SRX Denver Powertrain and Fuel Economy
For many the only disappointment was with the powertrain and the fuel efficiency, which can be pretty important to any buyer. The Cadillac SRX has a 3.6 liter V6 engine, but the problem is with weight of the SRX. Even with the six speed automatic transmission the SRX go from 0 to 60 in seven seconds and that is will all out acceleration. The Cadillac SRX comes available with either the front wheel or all wheel drive option. With the many options of fuel efficient possibilities on the market today the Cadillac SRX is not for you if you wanting the best EPA. The Cadillac SRX Denver gets about 16 or 17 miles per gallon in the city and about 23 or 24 miles per gallon on the highway which is considerably less than its peers that are in the 20’s and 30’s like the BMW X3 or the Audi Q5 (yes they have the same turbo four cylinder engine).

In the realm of the luxury crossover vehicles the Cadillac SRX from your Cadillac Dealership in Denver is a pinnacle of style and grace. The Cadillac SRX in Denver made its debut in the market back in 2004, introducing itself as the competition for the European crossovers that had made their way across the pond to compete with the increasingly popular domestic and Asian vehicles that were the natural replacement for the minivan in a culture that has been obsessed with the rugged looks of an SUV ever since they made it to the showroom floor. While there were certainly some great options in the luxury crossover market making it over to us from the European market the Cadillac badge was still able to carry more weight than the amenities that these contenders could offer and thus the Cadillac SRX was an instant success, bringing the kind of luxury and performance that we have all come to expect from Cadillac but packaging it in the crossover body style that has been ever so popular for many years now. For those of us who are relegated to driving in the inclement weather conditions of Colorado, though, the real question when considering any crossover is, will it perform in the snow? Well, lets take a look at what the Cadillac SRX has to offer and answer that all important question right now.

Cadillac SRX in Denver

Cadillac SRX in Denver

Cadillac SRX in Denver Sporty and Powerful
First and foremost when it comes to navigating your way through the freezing rain and the snow is the amount of power you can produce to cope with the road conditions. No amount of traction control can get you out of the deeper snow drifts if you don’t have the power under the hood to get your wheels to turn properly. This is where the powertrain of the Cadillac SRX from your Cadillac Dealership in Denver outshines most of the competition. Not only will you get a sporty and powerful ride in the summertime which is one of the more rare aspects to find in a crossover, but you will have the power to get yourself out of the deepest drifts in the wintertime as well. This is thanks to the 3.6 liter V6 that comes standard on all the versions of the Cadillac SRX in Denver, from Rickenbaugh Cadillac and manages to produce 308 horsepower and 265 lb ft of torque. The torque is where you really find your biggest advantage in the winter time as it offers you the raw power that you need to get your tires spinning when they are bogged down by the heavy snows in Colorado.

Cadillac SRX in Denver Responsive All Wheel Drive
Once you’ve got your self moving forward the most important thing is to keep yourself moving, this is where the drivetrains of the Cadillac SRX in Denver come into play. First and foremost, all of the Cadillac SRX from your Cadillac Dealership in Denver models come equipped with a standard front wheel drive. For those of us who do most of our driving in the city or on major roads that are plowed right away, this is often quite sufficient (with good tires) to cope with the reduced traction of the winter driving experience. However, we don’t all have the luxury of nicely plowed roads all the time and for those of us who don’t there is the option of going all wheel drive for all of the Cadillac SRX models save for the base which is front wheel drive only. The all wheel drive system in the Cadillac SRX from Rickenbaugh Cadillac is sure to get you where you need to go no matter what the weather has in store. Responsive all wheel drive is a must for some and in the Cadillac SRX you can have exactly what you need.

Cadillac SRX in Denver High Tech Features
While the all wheel drive system and the powertrain in the Cadillac SRX are certainly built with the highest technology available on the market, when we talk about high tech features we are often referring to the gadgets and gizmos that we don’t normally expect to find in a vehicle. When it comes to keeping your Cadillac SRX in Denver safe and on the road where it belongs in the winter time there is no shortage of high tech amenities to get the job done. First and foremost we should look to the available traction control which is essential when you are dealing with the slippery Denver winter roads. This tech keeps your on the road by detecting when your wheels start to slip and compensating through power and braking where it is needed. You also have the very cool seat alert system which can let you know when a vehicle is in your blind spot through a gentle vibration on one or the other side of your seat. This is smart tech and something you are sure to appreciate in your new Cadillac SRX from Rickenbaugh Cadillac.

Cadillac SRX In Denver Interior Features | Rickenbaugh Cadillac

With the rising popularity of smaller and midsize crossovers in the luxury auto segment it is no surprise that the famous badge of Cadillac has gotten in on the act with their rather impressive smaller crossover the Cadillac SRX in Denver. Once you’ve been behind the wheel of the Cadillac SRX, from your Cadillac Dealership in Denver, it becomes very easy to see what the smaller crossover market has gained so much popularity in recent years compared to the sedan market. No only do you get plenty of room to seat five comfortably, but all of the luxury that you have come to expect from the luxury sedan market over the years is present and in many ways even improved for the Cadillac SRX. Not only do you get the kind of cabin that you would expect in a traditional luxury sedan, but you get the added feature of increased ride height, which for many drivers has become just as necessary as mirrors for a safe driving experience. We know that most of the vehicles on the road are equipped to handle collisions with ease but there is simply something to be said for the better visibility that you get from riding a bit higher than you otherwise would in a smaller or even a larger sedan.

Cadillac SRX in Denver

Cadillac SRX in Denver

Cadillac SRX in Denver CUE infotainment system
The first thing you are likely to notice when you climb into the cabin of a Cadillac SRX in Denver is the CUE infotainment system. Of course you have seen touchscreen devices in vehicles before, but they are typically situated just above the myriad of traditional buttons and knobs on the instrument panel that are still required to control such things as the climate control and even some aspects of the stereo itself. What is going to draw your eye about the CUE infotainment system is the lack of these buttons cluttering up your console as the majority of the vehicles functions, short of the driving, are controlled via the large, color touch screen that rests snugly in your instrument panel. The CUE infotainment system in the Cadillac SRX, from your Cadillac Dealership in Denver, doesn’t just give you a fancy way to control your stereo and your climate, it also offers you things that you haven’t had in your vehicle up to this point. The Cadillac SRX from Rickenbaugh Cadillac gives you the options , via the CUE infotainment system of viewing real time stock updates, real time weather, and real time traffic so you can not only ride in style, but you can stay informed while you are on the go without having to resort to the unsafe practice of pulling out your phone to check what’s going on in the world around you.

Cadillac SRX in Denver modern styling
Beyond just the fancy new CUE infotainment system the interior of the Cadillac SRX in Denver is still something to behold in and of itself. Like you would expect, the Cadillac SRX is equipped with wood trim accents, however, unlike the competition the wood accents in the Cadillac SRX aren’t just your normal trim. These are some of the most highly polished trim pieces that you have ever seen, and the effect is to take a somewhat stodgy fixture of the luxury segment and make it look like it belongs in a vehicle that has foregone buttons for a touchscreen. You get the luxury, but still the effect of starkly modern styling that is sure to make you love the Cadillac SRX that much more. The wood trim works well with the leather interior to deliver a fully put together interior that fits as well as it looks. No extra gaps or loose panels on this well built machine. The interior of the Cadillac SRX, from your Cadillac Dealership in Denver, isn’t solely there for aesthetics however. Remember that the you have to spend a whole lot of time in the  cabin of your vehicle, and so do your friends and family.

Cadillac SRX in Denver ample room
The interior of the Cadillac SRX in Denver offers ample room for five adult passengers. While this may seem like a given I challenge you to go out and see some of the offerings from the Cadillac SRX from Rickenbaugh Cadillac competitors and see if seating for five always really means five adults can sit in the vehicle. The legroom is ample for the front seats as most models in the class offer, but where the Cadillac SRX really outshines the competition is in the rear leg room. You passengers can really enjoy themselves even on the longest road trips due to the unique layout that gives the Cadillac SRX from Rickenbaugh Cadillac such a great amount of space for passengers. This isn’t to mention the ample cargo room that you will find in the rear section of the vehicle. The power lift gate opens up to a very nice 30 cubic feet of cargo area that provides more than ample space for all of your passengers to get luggage or whatever other belongings they need to bring along.

Denver Cadillac SRX Accessories

Information about the 2014 Cadillac SRX in Denver

2014 Cadillac SRX In Denver, Lone Tree and Wheat Ridge Body Design | Rickenbaugh Cadillac

The 2014 Cadillac SRX in Lone Tree from Rickenbaugh Cadillac has not been on the Cadillac roster for a very long time, yet the 2014 Cadillac SRX in Wheat Ridge has already undergone not just a minor tweak on the sheet metal and trim, but a major overhaul to the vehicle that would, in many cases be considered a new model altogether. While there were some detractors of this shift, namely the performance minded drivers, the 2014 Cadillac SRX in Wheat Ridge now offers Colorado drivers a much more sensible vehicle that is much better equipped to tackle the kind of driving situations that we encounter on a routine basis in the winter time.

2014 Cadillac SRX in Lone Tree, Wheat Ridge and Denver Rigid Unibody Platform
The original version of the 2014 Cadillac SRX in Lone Tree from Rickenbaugh Cadillac was based more on a sports vehicle than a crossover. While it still possessed the looks of the crossover, it was a rear wheel drive, that is certainly not the best choice for any drivers who have to navigate the ice and snow of a Colorado freeway. The new body and drivetrain are much more suited to our climate offering a rigid unibody platform to assist in handling and a front wheel drive drivetrain to help keep the traction high when you might otherwise be slipping and sliding through the snow. The use of a unibody platform is a key to providing the best mix of size and handling capabilities to a driver of a larger vehicle like the 2014 Cadillac SRX in Wheat Ridge, now lets take a look at why this might be.

2014 Cadillac SRX in Lone Tree, Wheat Ridge and Denver Handling Capabilities
First off, the use of the unibody construction in the 2014 Cadillac SRX in Lone Tree allows for more rigidity in the frame. So why would you care about the rigidity of the frame? Well, I’ll tell you. If you care at all about the way that your vehicle handling capabilities when you are driving at anything over 10 miles per hour than the stiffness of the vehicles body should be a major consideration for you. This is because the body of your vehicle is what the suspension attaches to. As you know the suspension is what is largely responsible for the handling of any vehicle, but it can only do so much of the work and even with the most sophisticated suspension on the market, you can only get so much out of it if the body that it is attached to is apt to move itself.

2014 Cadillac SRX in Lone Tree, Wheat Ridge and Denver Sophisticated Design
While better handling is all well and good, what about all the times you’ve heard that they just don’t make vehicles like they used to and that those old battle tanks were much safer than the lightweight vehicles that we have on the road today. Well, to be quite honest everything you’ve heard to that effect is pure malarkey. The engineering that had gone into the new unibody designs of the 2014 Cadillac SRX in Lone Tree and of many of the other vehicles on the road today incorporate sophisticated design as well as some of the most advanced materials that have ever been created. The 2014 Cadillac SRX in Denver from Rickenbaugh Cadillac with it’s advanced unibody design is much safer than any of its predecessors, and I will attempt to explain to you exactly why.

2014 Cadillac SRX in Lone Tree, Wheat Ridge and Denver Advanced High Strength Steel
The new 2014 Cadillac SRX in Denver has been designed not just out of varying thickness’ of steel like older vehicles were, but it has been designed with thousands of interconnected pieces all designed to give you the exact amount of rigidity or softness that you need to protect yourself and your passengers in the event of a collision. It is through the use of intelligent engineering and the advanced high strength steel, and other modern building materials that the 2014 Cadillac SRX in Denver from your Cadillac Dealership in Denver can offer you a lightweight vehicle that is better on the fueled economy scale and still remains one of the safest vehicles on the road.

2014 Cadillac SRX in Lone Tree, Wheat Ridge and Denver Superior Safety
So what exactly does advanced high strength steel mean? Well, what we have been able to achieve in recent years are better practices to temper or strengthened steels. This has resulted in a wide variety of material strengths available for automakers to use in the construction of there vehicles. We end up with a variety of materials from traditional steel which is the softest to high strength steel, very high strength steel, ultra high strength steel, and boron alloy’s that all have their own degrees of strength. The hardest of these materials are used in the areas where we want little to no movement in the body. On the Cadillac SRX from your Cadillac Dealership in Denver these areas would include the body pillars and some of the other areas surrounding the passengers. With these areas as rigid as possible we next design the areas further away from the passengers to fold at certain points allowing impact force to be distributed with minimal effect to you or your Cadillac SRX passengers offering superior safety.

2014 Cadillac SRX in Denver Avoidable Crashes
Safety is what the 2014 Cadillac SRX in Wheat Ridge is all about. While many other vehicles offer a comprehensive list of safety features, Cadillac goes out of its way to make sure that each safety feature it offers not only protects occupants in the event of a crash, but also prevent avoidable crashes from occurring in the first place.

2014 Cadillac SRX in Denver Blind Zone Alert
Such avoidance technology includes the innovative Side Blind Zone Alert. This technology helps alert drivers to other vehicles approaching from behind as they change lanes. A sophisticated radar system monitors both sides of the SRX for approaching traffic. As a vehicle rolls into the radar zone, a light located in the side view mirror alerts you to that vehicle’s presence. The system also helps alert you if a vehicle merges towards you. The Side Blind Zone Alert is just one of several technologies Cadillac employs to help keep drivers safe.

2014 Cadillac SRX in Denver Radar Sensors
Another innovative safety feature found in the 2014 Cadillac SRX in Lone Tree is the Rear Cross-Traffic Alert system. This safety feature also uses radar sensors to help warn drivers of oncoming traffic. The technology used in the Rear Cross-Traffic Alert system employs visual and audible alerts to warn drivers of other moving vehicles, especially when backing out of angled parking spaces. If the vehicle is equipped with the available safety seat, directional seat pulse alerts also help warn drivers of other moving vehicles in close proximity. This safety feature helps boost driver confidence and gives them more time to react to obstacles that are hard to see.

2014 Cadillac SRX in Denver Adaptive Cruise Control
The Driver Assist Package adds a variety of safety features that help assist drivers in maintaining safe and aware operation of their 2014 SRX. This unique package includes Adaptive Cruise Control, which uses radar to automatically adjust the SRX’s speed to maintain a safe following distance. It also includes Front and Rear Automatic Brakes that also use short-range radar technology and ultrasonic sensors to aid drivers in avoiding front and rear collisions at low speeds. In addition to automatic brakes, the SRX also features brakes that automatically dry themselves under wet conditions. After rain is detected, sensors help position the brake pads closer to the brake rotor, allowing the past to sweep away moisture to improve braking performance in wet weather.

2014 Cadillac SRX in Denver Collision Alert
The 2014 Cadillac SRX in Wheat Ridge also features a comprehensive driver awareness package that includes Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Alert and the Safety Alert Seat.

The Safety Alert Seat is one of the newest safety features the SRX offers. This particular system sends subtle vibrations throughout select portions of the seat cushion. Depending on which side of the seat cushion vibrates, the driver is alerted to potential hazards on that side of the vehicle. This gives the driver time to take proactive measures to avoid a potential collision. This system works in concert with other driver assist features, including Adaptive Cruise Control and automatic brakes.

The Cadillac SRX from Rickenbaugh Cadillac is a small luxury crossover that has known two different generations that are very different indeed. In its first life the Cadillac SRX was rear wheel drive platform based on the CTS sport fro Cadillac. This is was a major performance booster for the larger vehicle as it gained some serious performance credentials. These types of credentials, unfortunately are not what the average crossover buy really care about. So the new incarnation is based on the Chevy Equinox and has it’s front wheel drive underpinnings to keep the ride much less exciting and much more like a regular boring ride to the grocery store or to school. I jest a bit though, both of the incarnation offer more than ample power to the wheels and we have seen in some of the recent drift GP’s that front wheel drives can make some serious oversteer when they want too. Of course I would never suggest that any of the potential Cadillac SRX drivers on this page ever attempt to gain oversteer on purpose, this is a closed track with a professional driver after all. Consult your doctor, all that stuff. The Cadillac SRX in Denver is quite impressively outfitted with amenities like the intuitive technology the SRX offers like the innovative CUE ­- Cadillac User Experience driver interface, which leaps two generations ahead, the convenient available rearview camera or the available Bose® surround sound and HD radio. All backed by Cadillac’s Shield Program, the most comprehensive suite of owner benefits offered by any luxury automotive brand in the world.

Cadillac SRX in Denver Favorite Exterior Features
As we’ve already mention it above lets jump into one of my favorite Cadillac SRX in Denver exterior features, the back up camera system. I absolutely adore these things and I hope that the legislation requiring them to be on every vehicle will continue and become the norm. I just hope it takes a little longer for homeland security to get there hands on the footage and to tap my integrated phone speaker, but I digress. The Cadillac SRX from Rickenbaugh Cadillac with it’s back up system can help prevent some of the most expensive and tragic incidents that one can have. Of course there are much worse incidents on the highway, but for low speed incidents backing over something you didn’t know was there can be devastating, especially if it was your beloved family pet, or god forbid a child. I hate to bring it up, but it does happen. This is why I love these so very much as this type of thing never has to happen again. In terms of saving money, did you know that a collision between you and a stationary object is the most chargeable event in insurance terms. This is the type of event where your rates go up, way up. If it was an accident between two people that was totally your fault they can still say that it was at least partly the other persons no matter the circumstance. Hit a pole and there is absolutely no way that pole was going to get out of the way.

Cadillac SRX in Denver Fashionable Add Ons
Lets look at a little bit of the fashionable add ons now the Cadillac SRX in Denver is certainly no slouch on looks, just like the rest of the Cadillac family Part of those looks aren’t just derived form the large and ultras luxurious body lines that can be found in the sheet metal of this crossover. Some of them are much smaller,m but still pack a huge impact. The roof rack which is standard can be outfitted with chrome roof rails. That’s a whole big strip of bling right on the roof where its going to cast a big ole disco ball effect and get some heads turning for sure. We also have the optional addition of the clear tail lamps. The LED bulbs inside are the right color so you don’t need to have the gaudy orange plastic on the back or your Cadillac SRX from your Cadillac Dealership in Denver any longer, a huge win as far as I’m concerned.

Cadillac SRX in Denver Safety and Visibility
Finally lets talk about some more safety and visibility. Who doesn’t love some safety and some visibility after all. The Cadillac SRX from your Cadillac Dealership in Denver comes equipped to dish out some serious lumens when you need them and some less serious lumens when you need that. We are talking, of course about the HID lamps. These HID’s blow the old school halogens clean out of the water. Reflective light casting is so street behind, what you want is the power to use lens to cast a solid beam directly in form of the vehicle and illuminate what you will be hitting if you hadn’t had the type of lights you do. Safety for your Cadillac SRX in Denver is in what you can see, and when you can see it. Traditional lights don’t offer much time to stop for that deer, but the HID’s sure do. Just don’t overdrive them.

The Cadillac SRX in Denver from Rickenbaugh Cadillac has undergone a lot of change in its short tenure on the Cadillac roster. Originally making it’s debut in 2004 the SRX has gone through two generations already. Where most vehicles undergo a redesign that bestows them with some new sheet metal, new accessories, and maybe an engine upgrade or two, the SRX has completely changed the platform that it is based on between the two generations. It may be more appropriate to say the SRX is two different models of the lineup at your Cadillac Dealership in Denver that share the same name. With this being said, both of the platforms have something to offer and both are stellar performers in their own right. In my opinion Cadillac should have kept the original SRX on it’s sports sedan platform and added a new model, but of course I am not an automotive executive, so who knows what motivations were behind the shift in platforms. Either way you look at it the SRX is a great option. In this article we will show you why the Cadillac SRX in Denver performance is impressive no matter which generation you choose.

Cadillac SRX in Denver Sports Sedan Platform
In it’s first incarnation the Cadillac SRX in Denver was based upon the sport sedan platform of the Cadillac CTS. While many crossovers are based upon sedan platforms, most of them do not carry the kind of sports pedigree that the SRX was able to bring to your Cadillac Dealership in Denver. First and foremost the first generation SRX came standard with a rear wheel drive. This is exceedingly rare even in smaller cars these days and it speaks to the sports image that the original SRX was able to capture. Of course, as a crossover the SRX was also available as an optional all wheel drive model, which is nice for those drivers in more inclement weather like that here in Denver, but for those who are blessed by clear roads the majority of the time, the rear wheel drive platform was able to get the most out of the powerful engines that were available in the first gen SRX.

Cadillac SRX in Denver Pure Performance Experience
The Cadillac SRX in Denver didn’t just offer the suspension of a sports performance sedan and call it a day. The midsize crossover was well equipped to power this platform with a couple of powerful engine choices. First off the line was the entry level powertrain, a 3.6 liter V6 which offered an impressive 260 horsepower. The V6 offered capable acceleration for the class, but was certainly not a huge step forward from the competitions offerings of standard powertrains. Where the first generation SRX made its magic was in the upgraded engine. This upgrade came in the form of a 4.6 liter V8 serving up 320 horses for a pure performance experience. The V8 offered acceleration that just blew all of the competition out of the water. Although some of the competitors in the class offered more powerful motors, none offered them in a vehicle so small for the midsize class, and none had the sports platform to help translate that power straight to the road. The combination of power and a platform that delivered true sports handling for a larger vehicle made the SRX a top choice in its first generation and is still often available in the pre-owned inventory at Rickenbaugh Cadillac

Cadillac SRX in Denver a Different Animal
That was then, and this is 2013, and the Cadillac SRX in Denver is a different animal altogether. The sports sedan platform that we all loved so much was dropped from the assembly line in favor of a front wheel drive crossover SUV framework. While this platform shift is a bit of a disappointment for the more performance minded driver, it is an improvement for the majority of crossover buyers who are looking more for a supple ride than for head jerking power. That isn’t to say that the SRX doesn’t still have a little to offer for the lead foot in all of us. The SRX offers one of the most capable motors in the small crossover class. A 3.6 liter V6 is the only option that we have for the current generation SRX, but with it’s 308 horsepower it isn’t a bad option at all. One drawback, however, is that the SRX also boasts substantially more weight than other vehicles in the class, negating some of the power that the V6 would otherwise be able to deliver. We also lost the rear wheel drive option, however, the all wheel drive is still more than capable of delivering great handling. Despite these minor setbacks the SRX is still a top choice at Rickenbaugh Cadillac.
