A carry-over from 2006, the SRX is a luxury four-door cross-over SUV that has seating for up to seven passengers that offers a newly redesigned cockpit for 2007. The base model gets a 3.6liter variable-valve-timing (VVT) 260HP engine linked to a five-speed automatic transmission. There is an optional Northstar V8 with 320HP and a six-speed automatic transmission offered. The sport package includes twenty-inch wheels-and-tires along with the availability of all-wheel-drive.Read more Read less
The big news for the 2007 Cadillac SRX is its upgraded interior. The instrument panel, door trim, and dash are now covered in hand crafted, French stitched leather instead of plastic. This allowed Cadillac to hide the air bags by punching tiny perforations into the back side of the leather instead of leaving a visible plastic seam. Along with the new leather bits, the SRX is now bestowed with a deeper colored wood trim, called Sapele, which lends a richer overall look to the inside of the vehicle. Also new are navigation and HVAC systems with simpler controls. A Bose audio system becomes standard on every model, while a 5.1 channel Bose surround sound system is available as an option. Cadillac also now offers up its optional sport package by including 20-inch alloy wheels (instead of 18-inchers) and more aggressive front and rear fascias. V8 models get GM's six-speed automatic.
An SUV that drives like a sedan; upgraded interior now on par with good looking exterior.
With a base MSRP of $37,225, the 2007 Cadillac SRX brings a lot to the table. For starters, the GM 3.6L "high feature" V6 is smooth and capable, while never becoming noisy or obtrusive. Also standard is StabiliTrak, which can reduce engine or wheel speed as conditions dictate. Goodyear tires ride on handsome 17-inch machined aluminum wheels, which are bolted to very capable four wheel anti-lock disc brakes. Other standard amenities include power front bucket seats, a tilting leather-wrapped steering wheel with redundant audio and climate controls, power windows and locks, remote keyless entry, a complimentary year of OnStar service, and parking assist. All these standard features on top of an SUV that drives on par with its German and Japanese rivals translate to an outstanding value that should not be ignored.
