What Is the 2015 Cadillac SRX?

The 2015 Cadillac SRX is a mid-size luxury SUV with seating for five. It competes against the likes of the Audi Q5, Lexus RX 350, Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class and Lincoln MKX.

For this model year, the OnStar system adds 4G LTE internet connectivity plus a built-in Wi-Fi hot spot. A three-month/3-gigabyte data trial comes standard.

How Does the 2015 Cadillac SRX Compare to Other Luxury Mid-size SUVs?

Although the SRX is due for an update, it still remains relevant thanks to its abundance of advanced technology features. Additionally, its base price is well below that of Lexus RX 350.

What Features in the 2015 Cadillac SRX Are Most Important?

The Cadillac SRX is powered by a 3.6-liter V-6 engine capable of producing 308 horsepower. The V-6 engine is paired to a six-speed automatic transmission.

Significant standard features include 18-inch aluminum wheels, halogen headlights, heated side mirrors, 60/40-split folding backseat with reclining backrest, Cadillac User Experience entertainment system, a Bose stereo and dual-zone automatic temperature control. Notable available features include a power liftgate, rain-sensing windshield wipers, heated and ventilated front seats, a navigation system, power-adjustable pedals and a dual-screen rear entertainment system.

As required on all vehicles of this model year, the SRX is equipped with front airbags, antilock brakes and an electronic stability system. Side-impact airbags for the front seats and side curtain airbags come standard, while front collision warning with automatic braking, lane departure warning, blind spot warning, rear cross-traffic alert and a backup camera are available.

Should I Buy the 2015 Cadillac SRX?

The SRX is attractive and is outfitted with luxurious interior amenities and comfortable seating. However, its large blind spot, mushy brakes and less-than-intuitive CUE system may deter some drivers.

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.
