For the 2010 model year, Cadillac introduced an all-new SRX based on the Provoq concept vehicle.[3] The production used the all-wheel drive GM Theta Premium platform, which is mostly unique but shares some components with Theta and Epsilon II. The V8 has been dropped for this generation. The second generation SRX began production in Summer 2009 as a 2010 model, and has a starting price of $34,155.[4]

The SRX was officially unveiled in January 2009. It was launched with the choice of a 3.0 liter V6 with direct injection derived from the 3.6 liter unit in the Cadillac CTS, or a 2.8 liter turbocharged V6.[5]

In January 2011, General Motors discontinued production of the 2.8 liter turbo-charged V6 engine in the SRX, citing poor sales numbers. Less than 10 percent of SRX buyers opted for the turbo-charged engine. This left the naturally-aspirated 3.0 liter V6 as the only engine available for the 2011 model year.[6] For 2012, a 3.6 liter V6 with E85 flex-fuel capability will be offered in the turbo V6's place[7].

Safety recallEdit

In May 2010, General Motors had to recall about 550 of its 2010 Cadillac SRXs with the turbocharged 2.8-liter V-6 because of a possible engine failure if owners use regular gas and then drive aggressively. The automaker said the fuel-filler lid and owner's manual warn that the engine should not be worked hard if regular fuel is used. Failures in several vehicles owned by GM and one external user led it to discover that using regular fuel and driving hard could cause possible internal engine damages including connecting rod failures. The automaker decided to conduct a "customer satisfaction program" to recalibrate the engine computer, but the NHTSA considered engine failures to be a safety issue and argued that a recall was required.[8][9]
