So how strange is this; bit of the circumscribed subject-matter to introduction of the 2010 Cadillac SRX crossover included an autocross footpath set down up at GM"s Milford Proving Grounds. What doesn"t combine up here? Traditionally, single wouldn"t anticipate GM"s PR dividing to place a Cadillac, especially a two-ton opulence crossover, on an autocross footpath higher suited to a Pontiac Solstice GXP.

Regardless of what some power believe about a slide of logic, there we were. And on the leap daytime when we were behind the disc of the all-new SRX, Mother Nature added snow and ice to course, fair to build things regular more interesting.

Bending because of single low-speed corner in an SRX equipped with the criterion 3.0-liter V-6 and all-wheel drive, the back part end of the five-passenger crossover smoothly swung exterior when I was heavy on the throttle. Yes, the merchandise oversteered in a predictable, controlled fashion. It was freakin" great! And yes, the Stabilitrak electronic steadiness command was fully operational. I grabbed an designer and repeated the maneuver some times fair to be certain I had felt what I thinking I had felt.

His answer was, "It"s alleged to do that. The organized entire knows that when a driver is in these conditions and calls representing lots of throttle, they desire the back part end to approach exterior a bit, so we allow to itÖwithin justification of course. It makes it put one"s hand on more natural."

If you don"t regularly push in snow we Michiganians do, then you"re extremely likely thinking, "Sliding around; that"s a needy thing. Why would I desire an all-wheel-drive crossover that slides around?" Well, sliding about isn"t accurately what was happening; racers and test drivers shout it "rotation." Cadillac engineers designed the SRX to grip more a sports sedan (think CTS) than a crossover (think Lexus RX). The morsel of oversteer they designed into the chassis, Haldex-supplied all-wheel-drive system, and Stabilitrak makes the SRX put one"s hand on more nimble, but at no period puts the driver in any danger.

In higher-speed corners (anything much faster than 20 mph), there was fair non-belligerent handling, but no oversteer and definitely no dreaded understeer (that pushing feeling that kills all sensations of driving fun). Additionally, on slick surfaces (snow and ice), the all-wheel-drive organized entire smoothly pulled the SRX along with no amuse oneself or wheelspin.

Atop this surprisingly jollity and able chassis, the 2010 Cadillac SRX is truthfully an all-new vehicle. Catch all the details in our just-completed Bottom Line. There you"ll learn more circular the shorter but wider body, the improvements in tinder economy, and the continuation of Cadillac"s styling transformation.
