What Is the 2014 Cadillac SRX?

The 2014 Cadillac SRX is a luxury crossover with seating for five. It competes with models like the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class, Lexus RX 350, Audi Q5 and Lincoln MKX. It's available in four trim levels, including Base, Luxury Collection, Performance Collection and Premium Collection.

What's New on the 2014 Cadillac SRX?

Intellibeam headlights are a new addition to the Driver Awareness Package. Additionally, Luxury Collection trims now offer 18-inch chrome wheels. A tan interior with black accents is another new option.

How Does the 2014 Cadillac SRX Compare to Other Luxury Crossovers?

Although the Lexus RX 350 may be the SRX's biggest rival, it falls short of the Cadillac when comparing available advanced safety features, even on its top-tier trims.

What Features on the 2014 Cadillac SRX Are Most Important?

The 2014 Cadillac SRX comes outfitted with a 3.6-liter V-6 engine producing 308 horsepower and mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. The SRX is available with front- or all-wheel drive.

Significant standard features include 18-inch aluminum wheels, halogen headlights, heated side mirrors, simulated leather upholstery, a 60/40-split folding backseat with a reclining backrest, CUE multimedia interface, dual-zone automatic climate control and a choice of two Bose stereo systems. Available amenities include a power liftgate, rain-sensing windshield wipers, heated and ventilated front seats, a heated steering wheel, a navigation system, a dual-screen rear entertainment system and power-adjustable pedals.

Standard safety features include side-impact airbags for the front seats, side curtain airbags, all-disc antilock brakes and an electronic stability system. Available safety options include forward collision warning, lane departure warning, blind spot warning, automatic emergency braking, rear cross-traffic alert, a backup camera, front and rear parking sensors and Cadillac's Safety Alert Seat.

Should I Buy the 2014 Cadillac SRX?

Although the SRX does not require premium gas and has a comfortable and upscale interior, some drivers may not be fond of its mushy brakes, large blind spot and less-than-intuitive CUE interface.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
