New Cars for 2010: The United States of America

2010 Cadillac SRX

New: Everything but the name.
Noteworthy: For 2010, Cadillac has removed the SRX's third-row seats, dumped the V-8 engine, and shifted drive duty from the rear to the front wheels. The old SRX had a tall-wagon feel, but this version is true to the crossover ethos in shape and packaging. It's also a more natural competitor to offerings from Audi, BMW, Lexus, and Mercedes-Benz. A turbocharged V-6 commonly found in Saabs will arrive mid model year to cover the loss of V-8 power in the SRX. Variable-effort power steering, continuously adjusting dampers, and all-wheel drive with an electronic limited-slip rear differential are available. The cabin styling draws heavily from the CTS and offers ambient lighting, a huge sunroof, and a display in the gauge cluster capable of showing turn-by-turn directions or even the speed limit of the road on which you're traveling.
