    Post Post Your New 2012 SRX Pics and Reviews Here!

    Today I went to see my new 2012 Black Ice SRX. It was raining cats and dogs the time I arrived at the dealership. However, I was able to grab 3 quick photos. I am hoping to pick up my new ride either tomorrow or Saturday.

    First Early Imprssions.

    New 3.6 badge on rear of tailgate. (one can easily spot the 2012 SRX from behind)
    New Door locks located just in front of inside door handles very nice touch. (photo coming soon)
    New Machine finish 20" rims. (looks really great in person especially with the Black Ice)
    New Graphite/ Black full interior color (to be honest I like either tutone or solid door panels)


    I wasn't able to test drive her because the SRX was in the shop right after the rain stopped and was getting her final prep. The prep guy told me he really liked the 3.6 engine and the new look of the 20" standard rims too.

    I will be anxious in witnessing the difference in the new added sound deadeners and the new sound note (tone) of the new exhaust. Also I am curious to see if I can hear the difference in the new "insulated" glass in the front and side windows (supposedly very similar to my old Buick Enclave). I believe GM has put a lot of research and effort into "tweeking" and enhancing the SRX to try and make it a more refined and enhanced vehicle for the new SRX owners.









    NOTE: All new 2012 SRX owners please post your new photos and your reviews here too.

    More to come when I pick her up and am able to test drive her.

    Too be continued.

    Marc, great looking caddy! I am waiting for my new 2012 SRX Crystal Red Premium. I will send pics as soon the vehicle comes in. I did go with the 20" chrome tech rims, but the new machine finish rims look sweet!

    Yes send pics soon! BTW: I really do love the look of those 20" Chrome rims too but unfortunately with my past experiences up here in the harsh winters the salt can really take a toll on the beautiful finish of those great looking rims as do some of the automatic car washes too. That being said I am looking forward to a visual change in the look of those newer 20" standard rims.

    Hmmmm I think I might enjoy that ...

    FYI: I still love my 2010 and if it weren't for someone wanting to buy her I would probably still be driving her around for a little while longer.

    I'm dying to hear the reviews both from forum members and the pros on how this new 3.6L engine performs. Plus, I really hope they have worked out the kinks which would make this crossover all it can be.

    My 2010 is doing much better now that I have the new transmission programming and my Radio/Nav is behaving.

    I like that 3.6 on the rear of the new 2012.

    I'm jealous of all that rain you're getting too. It's dry as a bone here.

    I would suggest that you email yourself those photos and then upload them from your computer. You can join one of many free photo hosting websites. I use photobucket.com *see below photos.

    Below is a couple of shots that I just shot this evening... I will share more photos and write some comments on my new SRX tomorrow when I have a little more time.

    *Notice how sweet the new machined 20" rims look.

    I thought I would first show you some pics of some of the little things that I noticed that is new to me or different from my 2010 SRX.

    1) The new lock/unlock button on the doors.
    2) ECO feature/ button
    3) Storage brackets (standard)
    4) Subtle FlexFuel decal on rear window near the gas cap; IMO it certainly much nicer looking than having those FF badges on the rear!
    5) New Yellow (Fug-ugly) gas cap!

    The other enhancements are subtle but worthy of notice. The double insulated front windshield and side glass is a nice improvement over the standard glass. It diffently does a better job of insulating you from outside noises.

    *Unfortunately the newer insulation and sound deadeners that are added inside for the 2012 SRX I don't have photos for.


    Below you can see a closer view of the new double layered insulated glass.



    What is new to me is the iPhone's great features that connects/ displays onto GM's display screen. (Even identifies me by name)

    You can scroll through your address book, view recent calls, missed calls & dialed calls too.







    When I get to learn more about these cool features I will then post more later.

    I believe you are correct. I didn't have an iPhone until just recently. I like how it connects and interfaces with the driver. I also want to set up and try out GM's My Link features very soon.

    *Note on the wheels ... I have to admit it was hard coming out and not seeing my old chrome wheels (BLING) on my new SRX but honestly I felt it was much safer and cheaper for me to not get them again because of how easily they get damaged. IMHO: Chrome over plastic was not really designed to survive our cold harsh winters (heavy salt) and some automatic car washes rails etc. If you live in warmer weather and want to hand wash your SRX then I would recommend getting them.

    That being said I was thrilled to find out the 2012 standard 20" Performance rims were to receive a new "machined" finish. Yes you can still see some of the rims painted areas but I believe this new combination displays a nice clean fresh look!

    Next to review is the new 3.6 engine.

    I can sum it all up in 3 words ... WOW WOW WOW! It launches to me like one scared jackrabbit! The torque and thrust combine to create a remarkable and amazing feeling. The sound of the engine and exhaust are sweet music to one’s ears. To me the new 2012 SRX takes the overall SRX experience from awesome to amazing! I now believe this leap frogs the SRX way over the competition... with outstanding acceleration along with a few nice added refinements!

    First I want everyone to know that I have never driven the 2.8 Turbo SRX so I cannot compare the two engines or their performance. That being said I only have 70 miles on my SRX and because of that I will be waiting to try a complete all out “pedal to the metal” take off and maybe some added power braking starts. I will wait a little while longer for the SRX to have a few more miles on her before I try that out.

    Stay tuned more feedback and comments are coming soon ...


    PS I love the look of that Black "Ice" especially in the sun light

    Marc, congratulations on getting yourself a new 2012 SRX. It looks great!
    I really like those 20" machined-finish rims. They're a nice look - I prefer them over the optional 20" chromed rims.
    It's great you're providing photos as well as your own first impressions of the new vehicle. When you have a chance can you post one or two photos of the interior (seating area & dash). I understand that for 2012 the previous "Ebony interior with Titanium accents" configuration has been changed to "Ebony interior with Ebony accents". I'd like to see what that looks like.
    Best of luck with your new SRX!

    It is poor cats and dogs again! So I will do it sometime over the weekend.

    Thanks for your input and I will elaborate more on my findings soon.
