    Re: No more SRX Turbo???

    you guys forget its actually a double savings for gm. Because the turbo model is mated to a higher grade transmission (aisin) to handle the tq levels. So for that few grand you actually get a very durable and well respected motor, the 2.8t motor ( saab motor ) and a more durable transmission. You never ever see an upgraded motor and a trans in a package so the 2.8t package is something that gm makes minimal money off of. I know my wife loves the 2.8t and as do I. The shifts are better than in the 3.0 trans, the power is much greater, and the car is much much quieter. Not only due to the turbo motor but because the vehicle doesnt strain to get going with the tq.

    It appears as if the 2012 SRX will come with the 3.6DI standard...

    That's more believable than a V-8, considering gasoline prices thought to hit $4 a gallon (USA) this summer.....

    My Enclave had the 3.6 DI engine and WOW! Even got about same MPG with the 500lb. heavier Enclave! That will make a difference for sure. Hope your sources are accurate.

    I think I'll wait for the 350 HP twin turbo 3.0 liter LF3 along with interior and exterior changes coming in late 2012 as a 2013 model.

    That MAY be your best bet but keep in mind that it may never happen. A twin turbo SRX would impress the hell out of me - but it would unlikely sell a whole lot.

    Re: No more SRX Turbo???

    You've got to look at where GM has been investing HUGE sums of money. They've invested more than $500 million in the development of a high feature small block V8 together with the plant(s) where the engine will be built. It's virtually a given the new V8 engine will be featured in the 2012 (2013?) XTS. With the money that's been spent on the new engine it's a certainty it will appear in several other vehicles as well.

    Personally, I'd be quite content to see the 3.6L DI LLT engine get into the 2012 SRX.. but if that in fact is/was part of GM's game plan, wouldn't they have done it by now? (when the vehicle was introduced).
    Regardless.. if the base engine in the SRX does become the 3.6L DI LLT (rather than the considerably weaker 3.0L DI), this will be a very good thing.

    As an aside.. I don't think one should arbitrarily consider the 3.6L DI LLT engine to have better fuel economy than the upcoming high-tech high-feature E85-capable direct injection small block V8. With GM spending $500 million plus on the V8 venture I am sure fuel economy has been a very big consideration.

    As nice as it sounds, I wouldn't count on seeing a twin-turbo 3.0L engine offered up as an optional engine for the SRX. Such an engine would be more expensive to build (and purchase) than the new V8 I speak of.

    Re: No more SRX Turbo???

    I believe the 3.0TT is already being built. So the money is already spent. I'm almost certain the first year of the XTS will come without a V8. Some time after we'll have a V6 hybrid and possibly a V8 - but who knows? The way gas prices are going up, I would not be surprised to see nothing but V6s except in V-Series applications. While the ATS-V is supposed to have a V8, I wouldn't be surprised to see it get the 3.0 TT..

    As for the SRX, I find it very unlikely we'll see anything larger or more powerful than the 3.6 SIDI in 2012 (as a 2013 model). Honestly, that'll be all the SRX needs to be competitive with the Lexus RX350.

    The new V8 is supposed to be going into a new full-size Chevy and possibly the new Escalade. IF Cadillac moves forward on a new RWD flagship, we'll see this V8 there as well.

    Re: No more SRX Turbo???

    Very interesting read Lord. Good points. The 2010/2011 didn't get consideration for the 3.6 eng due to the assembly plant it was bulit in (Mexico) not being geared up for it. Read it somewhere and makes sense.

    I put my $$ on the price of gas being a biggest factor in whether or not the V-8 makes it into the SRX. With the 3.6DI eng looking like it will appear there, it simply wouldn't even have the 10% market share the Turbo has currently. Also, a hybrid with gas/elec combined power would be very quick and compete better with Lexus 350 sled.......IMHO

    Someone mentioned this is a SAAB engine. My guess is that SAAB is looking to get exclusive use out of it...

    The word within GM is that the 3.0 DI will still be the standard SRX base engine and the 3.6 DI is the replacement for the 2.8 Turbo. The 3.6 DI will be a more popular option and should have a lower cost than the Turbo was for SRX buyers and should get better gas milage than the 3.0 DI.

    The new di is 296hp & 268lbs tq. Not really comparable to the turbo with that 30ft lb loss in tq. Hopefully they dont try to pass it off at the same price as the 2.8t is now
