2010 Cadillac SRX Turbo - Click above for high-res image gallery

The Cadillac SRX Turbo appears to be a one-year wonder. GM Inside News reports that the optional 300-horsepower, 2.8-liter turbo V6 has been discontinued in Cadillac's small crossover – a fact they confirmed through Cadillac's public relations department. Going forward, the standard 3.0-liter DI V6 will be the sole engine offering, which it basically was anyway. You see, according to Cadillac, less than 10 percent of SRX buyers opted for the turbo.

While the 3.0-liter gets little love from reviewers, who (correctly) ding it for being generally weak-kneed given the task at hand, actual SRX purchasers are obviously fine with it. The 2.8 turbo, despite dangling the carrot of more power, was not particularly memorable from either a performance or fuel economy perspective. More importantly, it seems basically no one walking into Cadillac dealerships cared it even existed, so out came the axe. If GM wishes to offer a step-up engine in the SRX someday, maybe it's finally time to work on getting the 3.6-liter DI V6 from the CTS in there.
