Cadillac's 2008 SRX is available in two basic flavors: V8 and V6. Both engines offer variable valve timing and can be mated to an optional all-wheel-drive system. Even the base V6, which uses GM's excellent 255-horsepower "high feature" 3.6L engine can be driven quickly, which is more rewarding than you would expect. Cadillac has really spent some time sorting out the suspension tuning of both SRX models, and it shows. Upgrade to the Northstar 4.6L V8, and horsepower increases to 320.
Choose the optional Magnetic Ride Control adaptive suspension, and handling goes from very good to outstanding, as this SUV feels tight and responsive around turns, giving it a cornering feel on par with INFINITI's FX or the BMW X5. Still, the highway ride remains smooth and comfortable, which is how most SUV buyers prefer it. The feel and responsiveness of the steering and brakes impress as well.
Just about every convenience feature you can imagine is available on the SRX, including sport packages with 18-inch or 20-inch wheels and tires, premium seating, a theater package that includes a rear seat DVD player (now a de rigueur offering in SUVs), high intensity discharge headlamps, an "Ultraview" panoramic sunroof, and more.
Overall, the 2008 Cadillac SRX is a very well-rounded package, and should remain a top choice for those wanting a bit more on-road excitement from their SUV.
An SUV that drives like a sedan; upgraded interior now on par with good looking exterior.
The Cadillac SRX has minimal changes for 2008, with adaptive remote start is now standard on the base V6 and V8. In addition, for the V6 a tire pressure monitor and painted cast aluminum wheels are standard, and the optional Premium Seating Package now includes a leather-wrapped heated steering wheel. Standard on the V8 for 2008 is a heated steering wheel. Black Cherry joins the color chart.
With a base MSRP of $37,045, the 2008 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 painted cast 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.
