Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), also known as "sticker" price, is a recommended selling price that automakers give a new car that is above the invoice price paid by the dealer. It is a price that does not include any options that can be added to a particular car style. When shown as a range, the prices are starting MSRPs, without options, for multiple styles for that model.
This price range reflects for-sale prices on Cars.com for this particular make, model and year.
Best Bets get above-average mpg, class-average or better reliability, class-average or better crash-test ratings, and our recommendation.
These city and highway gas mileage estimates are for the model's standard trim configurations. Where there are optional features, packages or equipment that result in higher gas mileage, those fuel-economy estimates are not included here.

'Crossover' with attitude Cadillac has enjoyed a roaring success in recent years, transformed from an aging luxury brand weighed down by padded roofs and a geriatric image to a happening collection of hip-hop Escalades and sporty CTS sedans.
With new styling that has been described as "knife edge," Cadillac has carved out a unique niche that's distinctly different from such competitors as Lexus and Mercedes-Benz. The beefy Escalades have retained their hold as custom-wheeled status
symbols beloved by urban youth. And CTS cars can be seen zooming around the racetrack at Bob Bondurant School of High Performance Driving in Chandler, which would never have happened with Grandpa's DeVille. The latest Caddy with an attitude is the
SRX, a luxurious "crossover" vehicle that combines the attributes of a passenger car, minivan and SUV. What it is, really, is a tall station wagon built on the chassis of the sharp-handling CTS. Going up against such crossovers as Lexus RX 330,
Mercedes-Benz M Class and Chrysler Pacifica, SRX has the look and performance to uphold Cadillac's new image. For affluent drivers who shy away from minivans, SRX provides the space without the bulk, as well as plenty of style. The test car was
powered by a powerful V-8, an option that trumps the mostly V-6-powered crossover field, as well as optional all-wheel drive. SRX lacks the mighty presence of Escalade, however, and seems destined to appeal more to suburban families than sports
stars. Still, it should be another score for the turnaround king of luxury cars.
