    2012 SRX Getting Revised Engine Lineup

    2012 SRX Getting Revised Engine Lineup
    GM fans get their wish with the addition of the 3.6L.

    February 1, 2011
    By: Nick Saporito, Alex Villani


    Several weeks ago GMI broke news that the Cadillac SRX crossover was dropping its optional 2.8-liter turbo V-6. The news came as a surprise as the optional mill was responsible for providing the SRX near best-in-class power output. GMI has since learned the motive behind the axing of the turbo V-6.

    According to engineering sources at GM as well as Cadillac dealerships, the 2012 SRX will receive GM’s familiar 3.6-liter V-6 as the only engine offering. The sources state that the engine will entirely replace the SRX’s current, anemic 3.0-liter V-6. The 3.6-liter will be GM’s new variant of the engine, dubbed ‘LFX’ based on the engine’s RPO code. Though the 3.0-liter could stick around for export markets to avoid higher displacement taxes.

    GMI has not been told what types of improvements the LFX has over today’s direct-injected 3.6-liter, though speculation has suggested the engine will see a power increase from today’s 304 horsepower rating in the Cadillac CTS. The engineering source did state that the 3.6-liter is turning out to be a “perfect match” for the crossover.

    The SRX is also slated to get a few other mild tweaks in 2012 model-year, including the addition of a heated steering wheel.

    Cadillac's move to kill the SRX Turbo now seems rectified as the 2012 model with the 3.6-liter will likely have more power with significantly improved fuel economy over the former turbo. Stay tuned to GMI for continued updates about the 2012 model-year!

    Finally. Good to see it getting some more of the luxury features it should have had since its introduction.

    Very nice. Only took a year (well you know what I mean) to fix the power train issue.
    Just that time again to ignore certain people. I'm certain they will continue to try and instigate and antagonize while throwing up their arms saying they did nothing but are here on a civil basis. Not worth the time seeing how some just seem to know all.

    Good call! Hope these revisions will make it onto the CTS as well.

    A small step in the right direction.

    Re: 2012 SRX Getting Revised Engine Lineup

    I have widely criticized the SRX myself on here, almost all of it because of the engine choices. However, with this news of the 3.6 going into the SRX, It is something we will SERIOUSLY consider buying (as long as the base price of the base model stays somewhat close or so of what it is now, I can deal with an increase but not too much.)

    Now lets see this engine put in the Equinox and Terrain..just to put it on closer footing with the V6 powered Edge.

    Now just add standard features found on a $25,000 Terrain and you're good.

    I have never been a fan of the SRX, but standard 315 (or so) HP and fuel economy comparable to the 3.0L....is very attractive.

    According to the information we have, no engine changes are slated for the Equinox or Terrain.

    I like the SRX, but i have never driven one, so I don't know about the engine problem. I love the looks of the SRX, sounds like it is soon going to be one heck of a competitor.

    I seem to remember mention of appearance changes for MY 2013. Are these still in the plan?
