2015 CADILLAC SRX CONNECTIVITY ENHANCED WITH ONSTAR 4G LTE
Cadillac SRX offers a roomy interior, with seating for five and a large cargo area. Its
design is classic Cadillac, with luxury that touches every aspect of the vehicle, from
the technology-drenched dashboard and high-performance powertrain to the
exclusive comfort and convenience features designed to surpass expectations.
For 2015, OnStar with 4G LTE and standard built-in Wi-Fi hotspot provides a mobile

SRX is offered in a base model and three option collections: Luxury, Performance
and Premium, with all-wheel drive offered on all but the base model. All are
powered by a direct-injected 3.6L V-6 rated at an SAE-certified 308 horsepower
(230 kW) and 265 lb-ft of torque (358 Nm). It is matched with the Hydra-Matic
6T70 six-speed automatic transmission, which features a driver-selectable Eco
feature that alters the shift points for up to 1-mpg improved fuel economy in
normal driving conditions.
SRX design and exterior features
Cadillac’s luxury crossover is distinguished by striking angles and refined details,
while its signature shield grille offers expressive depth. Flanking the grille are
Cadillac’s iconic vertical headlamps, with light pipe technology and available

SRX interior features
The SRX’s interior is defined by Cadillac’s signature blend of luxury and technology,
centered on Cadillac’s CUE (Cadillac User Experience). Rich, saturated tones
complemented by premium accent materials reflect contemporary lifestyles.
While CUE is the foundation for the SRX’s enhanced driving experience, it is
complemented with additional features and design refinements inside the vehicle,
including:
Standard HD radio
Bluetooth audio streaming is available for all collections
A USB port in the storage bin behind the CUE faceplate
The center console features an additional USB port, an auxiliary input jack
and a 12-volt power outlet
Headphones and remote designed for the rear-seat entertainment system,
which also includes a rear USB port and SD card slot.
For a quieter driving experience, the SRX offers active noise cancelation, which
uses microphones to detect ambient noise, the frequencies of which are processed
by a computer that directs counteracting sound waves through the audio system to
tailor the sound quality and character inside the cabin.
Additional interior features returning for 2014 include:
SiriusXM Satellite Radio with three-month trial service is standard on all
models

Cadillac CUE and new OnStar with 4G LTE
Standard on the SRX, CUE pairs entertainment and information data from up to 10
Bluetooth-enabled mobile devices, USBs, SD cards and MP3 players with a vehicle
infotainment system that reduces complexity through customized information, voice
commands and fewer buttons and larger icons. The comprehensive, in-vehicle
experience is designed to be unique for each consumer, from the “simple user” to
the fully connected “super user.”
At the heart of CUE, the vibrant, eight-inch LCD multi-touch sensitive screen – with
proximity sensing and haptic feedback – is seamlessly integrated in the top of the
central instrument panel. It displays CUE’s home page, which resembles a
smartphone screen, with large, easy-to-target icons that execute commands.
Capacitive technology on the screen and faceplate enables consumers to use the
same “swipe,” “pinch” or “spread” gestures common to most popular smartphones
and tablets.
A motorized faceplate for the system reveals a concealed storage area for
smartphones or other mobile devices and includes an illuminated USB port. CUE’s
vibrant LCD screen resembles a smartphone’s screen, with large, easy-to-target
icons to execute commands. A navigation system is also available with the Luxury
Collection and is standard with the Performance and Premium Collections.
The CUE screen is also the display for the rear-view camera that’s standard on the
Luxury, Performance and Premium Collections.
Complementing CUE to enhance the SRX’s connectivity is new OnStar with 4G LTE
and standard built-in Wi-Fi hotspot. It provides a mobile hub for drivers and
passengers to stay connected. The hotspot is on whenever the vehicle is on and
comes with a three-month/three-gigabyte data trial.
4G LTE is the most current and fastest mobile data network – 10 times faster than
3G and 100 times faster than the previous generation of OnStar hardware. And
with OnStar, it also offers stronger, broader coverage than smartphones on the
same network and it’s easy to use: If the vehicle is on, the connection is on.
At the time of purchase, six months OnStar Directions and Connections includes all
of OnStar’s advisor-based safety and security features, including Automatic Crash
Response and Stolen Vehicle Assistance, as well as Turn-by-Turn navigation.
Five years of OnStar Basic Plan includes RemoteLink Key Fob Services, allowing
owners to remotely start and lock/unlock a car (if properly equipped), and activate
the horn and lights from anywhere with a data connection. It also includes OnStar
Vehicle Diagnostics which runs monthly checks of a vehicle’s engine, transmission,
anti-lock brakes and more, and Dealer Maintenance Notification, which sends a
diagnostic report directly to a preferred dealer, simplifying service scheduling.
SRX powertrain
Performance is integral in the SRX, which is powered by a 3.6L direct-injected V-6
rated at an SAE-certified 308 horsepower (230 kW) and 265 lb-ft of torque (359
Nm). Lightweight features help reduce overall weight for greater efficiency and a
more favorable front-to-rear weight balance. Examples include a composite intake
manifold that saves approximately 5.5 pounds (2.5 kg) over the weight of a
comparable aluminum intake and an integrated cylinder head/exhaust manifold
design that saves approximately 13 pounds (6 kg) per engine.
The Hydra-Matic 6T70 six-speed automatic transmission is matched with the
engine. An available all-wheel-drive system incorporates an electronic limited-slip
rear differential, which not only improves traction in slippery road conditions but
provides side-to-side torque transfer along the rear axle to enhance control during
hard cornering.
SRX chassis and suspension
Drivers will appreciate the SRX’s four-wheel independent suspension system along
with its standard rack-and-pinion hydraulic steering system – and variable-effort,
speed-sensitive steering system – with tuning biased for sport sedan-style driving
and strong on-center feel. StabiliTrak electronic stability control is standard and
works in concert with the standard four-wheel-disc/four-channel-ABS braking
system.
Additional features include:
An independent MacPherson strut suspension system is standard on all
models, featuring a direct-acting stabilizer bar and hydraulic ride bushings
An independent “H-arm” rear suspension incorporates a lightweight hollow
stabilizer bar
Power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering is standard on Base and the
Performance Collection
Power-assisted variable-effort and speed-sensitive rack-and-pinion steering
system is standard on the Performance and Premium Collections
Rear axle ratio is 3.39 on all models
A trailering package is available on the Luxury, Performance and Premium
Collections and increases the towing capacity to 3,500 pounds (1,587 kg).
SRX safety
Cadillac SRX provides a standard NHTSA 5-Star overall crash safety rating, the
highest safety rating available.
In addition, Cadillac provides available advanced safety in the based on Cadillac’s
“control and alert” strategy that employs advanced technologies – including radar,
cameras and ultrasonic sensors – to help prevent crashes. The safety features
bolster driver vision and awareness of road hazards, and can even assist to help the
driver avert potential crashes. In certain situations, Cadillac’s advanced crashavoidance systems, such as automatic braking, can pre-fill and automatically apply
braking in response to potential hazards.
Among the most sophisticated of the features is front and rear automatic braking.
It relies on radar, camera and ultrasonic technology to help the driver prevent front
and rear low-speed collisions via a progression of alerts that extend to complete
braking, if necessary.
Many of the advanced safety features are bundled in the Driver Awareness and
Driver Assist Packages. The Driver Awareness package is standard with the
Premium Collection and available on Luxury and Performance. It includes:
Safety alert seat
Forward collision alert
Lane departure warning
Intellibeam® high-beam control.
The Driver Assist package is available on the Luxury, Performance and Premium
Collections. It includes all of the Driver Awareness package content, plus:
Adaptive cruise control
Automatic collision preparation
Front and rear automatic braking.
StabiliTrak electronic stability control system with traction control, and four-wheel
disc brakes with four-channel ABS are also standard, along with:
Dual-stage frontal and side-impact driver and right-front passenger air bags
Head-curtain side-impact air bags
Rollover mitigation sensors
Front safety belt pretensioners and load limiters.
Additionally, a rearview camera is standard on the Luxury, Performance and
Premium Collections.
The SRX is also designed to meet European pedestrian protection standards, with
the front bumper positioned for greater compatibility with car bumpers.
