Amidst the new cars being manufactured to be given 2016 year model type is the 2016 Cadillac SRX. This particular new car model of Cadillac is a spirited design that will suit the ever-changing world of today. It is a stylish crossover that accommodates both the space needs and safety needs of the owner of the car. It offers bold look, advanced technology, and also seamless function. In a simple way, this SRX 2016 model is a combination of beauty, performance, technology, and also functionality.
One great thing to take a look at when it comes to a new car model is of course the performance it offers. The SRX of Cadillac is said to be able to deliver a maximum power of 308-horsepower. This is clearly a massive power for a crossover car. That maximum power is contributed by the use of a piece of V-6 engine under its hood. That particular engine is creating a kind of refined powertrain that is almost imperceptible purr at its idle state while revving in such silky tenor that is perfectly great.
The engine itself that is a 3.6-liter V-6 is able to deliver its peak performance in the 2,400 rpm. It can be considered to be having a kind of relaxed combination though. Yet by combining a piece of 6-speed automatic transmission along with the engine, the SRX itself is not that quick and responsive in term of its acceleration. At least when you need to get a burst of power out of the engine, it seems that the transmission could not deal with that need properly. That is going to give a clean 7 seconds time for the SRX to reach 60 mph from 0 mph. It is pretty much the same as the Lincoln MKX, Lexus RX350, and also Acura MDX.
In term of the drivetrain, you can choose either the all-wheel-drive or the front-wheel-drive type of the SRX. All of them are powered by the use of Haldex system that has an electronic limited-slip differential. Such feature is great and perfectly needed in snowy condition. Aside of having a not-that-quick problem in its acceleration, the SRX has also a kind of heavy handling. Yet you can count on its hydraulic-assist power steering to deal with such problem. It could also come with an optional part of FE3 suspension to support its 20-inch wheels that work just fine. The wheels are not only good at its appeal but also contributing to the performance of 2016 Cadillac SRX.
