April 12, 2011 - PRLog -- Jim Hudson Cadillac, a Cadillac dealer serving Sumter, South Carolina, announces that the 2012 Cadillac SRX will receive a new, more powerful engine for superior acceleration both from the stoplight and on the highway.  The new 3.6L direct-injected V6 is projected to make 300 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque, a noticeable increase from the 265 horsepower and 223 pound-feet that the current 3.0L V6 makes in the SRX.  Although the official EPA gas mileage figures have not been finalized, Cadillac expects the new 3.6L engine to provide comparable fuel economy to the outgoing 3.0L rated, which is rated by the EPA at 18 MPG city and 25 MPG highway. Pricing will be announced closer to the start of production; the 2012 Cadillac SRX will arrive in South Carolina in late summer.

Further luxury and convenience features will also be added to the Cadillac SRX in 2012, with Bluetooth hands-free cell phone connectivity becoming standard equipment across all models. (In 2011, the option was not available on base SRX models.) All models except the base SRX will also receive a standard heated leather-wrapped steering wheel, which proves exceptionally useful during cold winters in Sumter. Additionally, Performance and Premium models will offer a new machine-faced finish on the 20-inch wheels that come standard on those trims. Lastly, door lock switches will be added on the driver and front passenger door for added convenience, joining the existing lock switch on the center console.

Of course, many of the most popular features on the Cadillac SRX will carry over unchanged for 2012. Among the most popular features for Sumter Cadillac drivers is the UltraView sunroof, a gorgeous oversized sunroof that covers 70% of the roof to let in as much natural light as possible.  When not desired, the touch of a button pulls a shade over the glass.  Convenience is found in the rear cargo area, with a moveable cargo fence and generous storage space under the floor offering flexibility to keep objects stowed safely and securely. Access to those objects remains easy with a power rear liftgate that can be programmed to stop short of its full extension to clear garage doors and low ceilings.  For those who venture into slippery terrain often, the Cadillac SRX also offers all-wheel drive with an electronic limited-slip differential in the rear. In addition to the added traction, the system allows torque to transfer left-to-right during hard cornering to offer improved control.

The 2012 Cadillac SRX will be available in late summer from Jim Hudson Cadillac serving Sumter, South Carolina.  Just minutes away in Columbia, South Carolina, Jim Hudson is the exclusive authorized Cadillac dealership in Columbia and has been voted Best New Car Dealership ten years in a row by readers of The State newspaper.  Jim Hudson Cadillac is located at 7201 Garners Ferry Road in Columbia, and can be reached at (803) 783-0110.  For more information on the Cadillac SRX, visit
