2004 Cadillac SRX - Price Quote

Visit Cadillac for more information on the Cadillac SRX.

Cadillac just keeps on delivering more and more new, modern cars. The SRX is the latest of the bunch, a model that aggressively rolls into the medium luxury segment with all sorts of innovative features, refinement and power.

However, though it is in the luxury utility segment, the 2004 Cadillac SRX has the feel and look of a sedan. This is because it borrows the same Sigma architecture used by the Cadillac CTS. Modified for the SRX, the result is the longest wheelbase in its class and a superior ride quality and dynamic stability.

Available Models
The 2004 Cadillac SRX is offered in a V6 model and a V8 model.

Interior Features
The four-door Cadillac SRX wagon has an optional two-passenger third-row seat that powers up or down flush with the rear cargo floor. This gives the SRX the ability to seat up to seven people.

It wouldn't be a Cadillac if it weren't loaded to the brim with standard features. V6 models have a lot; V8 models even more. Air conditioning with dual-zone automatic climate controls, the OnStar telematics system, a tilt leather-wrapped steering wheel with radio and climate controls, cruise control and leather upholstery are standard with both.

One of the most appealing options is the largest sunroof in the segment. The optional "UltraView" sunroof extends to provide 5.6 feet of open air over the first and second row seats and integrates a retractable power shade.

Exterior Features
The wagon-style 2004 Cadillac SRX has a sleek, shiny look with a front-end that reminds one of the CTS. V6 models use 17-inch wheels; V8s 18-inchers. The SRX also has a manual liftgate without a separate opening window.

Rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive configurations are available. The V6 is a 3.6-liter variable-valve timing model that produces 255 horsepower at 6500 rpm and 250 lb-ft of torque at 3200 rpm. 5-speed automatic with manual-shift capability is the sole transmission.

The V8 engine is a 4.6-liter Northstar variable-valve timing model. It lets the SRX really move with 320 horsepower at 6400 rpm and 315 lb-ft of torque at 4400 rpm.

The new Cadillac SRX also features the latest four-channel StabiliTrak active suspension control and available segment-first Magnetic Ride Control. The electronically controlled magnetic-fluid based real-time damping is the world's fastest-reacting suspension control system.

Safety and Security
The safety features are plentiful. Dual front airbags, side airbags, front and second-row curtain side airbags, an antiskid system, a rear-obstacle detection system and antilock 4-wheel disc brakes are all standard.
