2010 Cadillac SRX - Click above for our live reveal gallery

The second-generation 2010 Cadillac SRX will be rolling into showrooms later this summer with a base price of $34,155. Jumping into the crowded luxury crossover segment, Cadillac hopes to lure customers with the SRX's fuel efficient 3.0-liter direct injected V6, technical features, and versatility. Of course, they've thrown in a dose of Cadillac's "visual appeal and driving character," says Steve Shannon, executive director of marketing for Cadillac. "We believe the Cadillac SRX offers emotional appeal to a segment previously devoid of much of that," he added.

Joining the Cadillac SRX later in the summer will be the 2010 Cadillac CTS Sport Wagon. The Sport Wagon mirrors the CTS sedan in design and features, yet it offers nearly double the cargo space. The standard engine in the CTS Sport Wagon will be the same 3.0-liter direct-injection V6 as is found under the hood of the upcoming SRX. Check out the press release after the jump for more details.

Cadillac Launches Two New Vehicles This Summer

DETROIT Cadillac's model lineup expands with two dramatically-designed new luxury vehicles that also bring new dimensions of versatility and efficiency to the marketplace. Cadillac announced today that the 2010 SRX Crossover, scheduled to begin production this summer, will be priced aggressively starting at $34,155.

Later this summer, the acclaimed CTS family will expand again with the arrival of the CTS Sport Wagon. Together with the all-new SRX, these two dynamic new Cadillac models are in sync with the changing priorities of today's luxury consumers.

"In a tough market the new SRX and CTS Sport Wagon are the right products at the right time, says Steve Shannon," executive director of marketing for Cadillac. "They offer new dimensions of versatility and fuel efficiency, along with Cadillac's signature design and technical features."

The all-new SRX launches into the strong luxury crossover vehicle segment, a category that now accounts for nearly one-fourth of all luxury vehicles sold in the U.S. market. The SRX features new downsized and fuel efficient engines in a completely redesigned vehicle that delivers a dynamic alternative in terms of visual appeal and driving character.

"We believe the Cadillac SRX offers emotional appeal to a segment previously devoid of much of that," says Shannon. "At the same time, it also has very practical new features such as advanced All-Wheel-Drive, and an efficient standard 3.0-liter Direct Injection V6 engine. And with an entry price of $34,155 the new SRX presents an attractive offer to consumers, while taking on the traditional segment leader aggressively."

The new CTS Sport Wagon offers the same design and technical features of Cadillac's centerpiece model, the CTS sport sedan – but in a wagon body style that effectively doubles the car's cargo space. The new Sport Wagon includes the same 3.0-liter Direct Injection engine that serves as the standard engine in the new SRX. In the Sport Wagon, highway fuel economy is estimated to reach 28 mpg.

Both the new SRX and CTS Sport Wagon will be presented in a special video webcast from one of Cadillac's design studios. Visit www.cadillacstudiolive.com for an inside look at the highlights of both new models.

      Maybe it's just me but that thing looks like a Caddy version of the Saturn Vue...?
        • 6 Years Ago
        yes it's based on the new vue.
      • 6 Years Ago
      What's the expected mpg for the SRX?
      • 6 Years Ago
      Looks nicer than the CTS sedan since the wagon body makes the blocky wedge front fascia less pronounced.
      • 6 Years Ago
      All that tax money we gave GM in bailouts, shouldn't the car be FREE?
      • 6 Years Ago
      I think dressed up Chrysler Pacifica when I see this....

      The Q5 has a shorter 1st, essentially equal 2nd and 3rd, (4.9, 8.8, 13.5 mph / 1k), similar curb weight (4300), and another 15 lb-ft in the midrange with a similar top end.

      Motortrend got a 15.0, Edmunds got a 14.9 out of it.

      The SRX will be slower but on paper there's no way that's worth a full second let alone two.

      The 4100 lb BMW X3 with slightly less power and similar gearing ran a 15.4 for Edmunds.

        • 6 Years Ago
        A Hyundai Santa Fe - down 25 hp, only a 5 speed transmission with a 30% taller 2nd gear - runs a 16.5.

        So does a Dodge Journey, down 30 hp.

        The Cadillac may be that slow, but on paper it has no excuse to be.

      I am not getting tired of Caddy's styling at all.
      • 6 Years Ago
      It makes a nice Buick.
      • 6 Years Ago
      I always liked these station wagons. Not too big and not too small. Mileage could be better.
      • 6 Years Ago
      Great job GM! Can we offer any more cheap looking interior plastics? You might be in better shape if you offered quality over budget.
        • 6 Years Ago
        This thing has a completely leather dash and door panels... it's the only crossover I know that has that... the wood trim looks good and the console looks like it's based on the CTS, and that means it has very high quality plastics. From what I saw in pictures and at the NY auto show, this will be the best mid-size luxury crossover... in terms of interior design and quality anyway. And with the 300hp TT V6, it should outperform the competition as well. We'll have to wait for comparison test between the Q5, GLK, RDX, X3, RX and the MKX.

        Thank goodness not everyone thinks like you, Lexus would not be able to sell anything. Save the LS, everything in the Lexus line is based on a downline Toyota product.
        • 6 Years Ago
        The interior is actually very nice. My dad has an 08 CTS and the quality is a big step from the previous gen CTS. The same is true with this car.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Cheap compared to what? This interior looks better than whats found in the RX or GLK.
        • 6 Years Ago

        Good observations, but it doesn't matter what materials they use. The haters will say its cheap and has poor fitment without every examining it first hand or comparing it directly to what it competes against in segment.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Save $10,000 and buy the 2010 Chevy Equinox which the Caddy is based on!
      • 6 Years Ago
      Cadillac badge not withstanding, 35 grand isn't terribly out of line with a Murano or Venza once you check off many interior upgrades - many of which I would hope a Cadillac would have standard.

      I can't work up a whole lot of interest in 4300 pounds of CUV straining 220 lb-ft of small displacement six, 265 hp on the brochure is great but who drives this kind of vehicle to the 7K redline?

      A Murano or Venza is over 300 pounds lighter with another 30 lb-ft on tap.

      Sure the turbo will cure that, but it'll price you into much stronger competition too.

      This should have the 3.6.
        • 6 Years Ago
        That's for the CTS wagon.

        The SRX has the 3.0 base, 2.8 turbo as the option.

        • 6 Years Ago
        Somebody at GM didn't look up and see what the shortest axle ratio is available for the 6t70/75 transmission.
        If they did, then they would have realized that this vehicle should have the 3.6DI (heck the lamda school busses have that)
        So, then somebody else at GM thought of grabbing the Saab 2.8T with the Aisin 6 speed auto.
        Yes that fixes the problem, but what about character?

        The 3.0 V6 is the '4 banger', this is the equivalent of the Venza 2.7 I4.
        It works, and provides good mileage, but that's it.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Base model is the 3.0, the 3.6 is an option.
      • 6 Years Ago
      My mom is looking for a new car/station wagon, and this was definitely towards the top of our list until we found out that it was built in Mexico :(
