    No more SRX Turbo???

    I just had a call from my Cadillac dealer wishing me a Happy New Year and he also mentioned that December 16 was the last day for dealers to order 2011 SRX turbo's and they're just sticking with the 3.0. I never saw any word of that on this board. If that's correct I guess mine will become "rare" LOL.

    Can anyone else confirm?

    I'd like to hear if this is true or a rumor. They might also stop production of the 2.8t and in a year or two bring out the 3.0t

    Re: No more SRX Turbo???

    All i know is the 2.8T is/was supposed to be short lived because it can't keep up with the amazing CAFE standards...

    Re: No more SRX Turbo???

    Damn, I planned on getting one from beginning. Got sidelined by the beautiful Plat Ice I saw in front of me in showroom and liked. Figured I would get one at lease end. But the Captains reasoning makes sense .....GM will probably axe it.

    Maybe a year end leftover???? HHHMMMMM.......

    Happy New Year all!!

    Re: No more SRX Turbo???

    GM will definitely axe it - that was always a given due to upcoming CAFE and Tier emissions standards (which the 2.8T engine can't meet).
    For an optional higher HP & torque engine for the SRX as well as a few other vehicles, GM will apparently introduce a new high feature small block V8 sometime in the fall of 2011.

    Re: No more SRX Turbo???

    Yes, I've read the new Caddy XTS (?) STS replacement, will offer it. Did not know the SRX was a candidate though.............guess gas prices will dictate. I suspect a hybrid first as they are the fad and usually offer an extra 50HP combined elec/gas power.

    I had a Buick Enclave (Arcadia/Traverse twin) and it was proposed to get a small V-8 also......till gas went to almost $4 a gallon back in 2008-9. Now even the new 2011 GMC Acadia Denali won't get it. Be nice option to have...............

    Re: No more SRX Turbo???

    General Motors has invested hundreds of millions of dollars in the development of a new high tech/high feature direct injected small block V8 together with the plant where the engine will be built (Tonawanda, NY). The top iteration/highest HP version of the engine will be available in select 2012 Cadillacs such as the XTS and SRX, however other versions of the engine will likely be optionally available in the 2012 GMC Acadia, Chevy Traverse & Buick Enclave, as well as a few other GM vehicles (mainly pickups).

    rumor is the 2.8 liter twin turbo is dead after one year of production in the SRX

    Rumor is the SRx 2.8 liter v6 turbo model is dead.

    What do you guys know about this????

    Only 10 percent of buyers paid the extra coin for the motor so it does make sense to discontinue the powerplant..

    Just offer up a 3.6 liter DI with 304 hp...and call it a day. IMO

    Re: rumor is the 2.8 liter twin turbo is dead after one year of production in the SRX

    From GMInside News:
    In recent weeks there has been speculation that Cadillac would be killing off the turbocharged model of its SRX crossover. The speculation fueled by dealership rumors and recent amendments to GM’s vehicle order guide; both suggesting the cease of production of the turbo model. Today Cadillac PR has confirmed to GMI that the SRX Turbo has been discontinued.
