    SRX Order 2013 or wait for 2014?

    Hello all, new to the forum and I've enjoyed reading everything I can about the
    SRX. Here's my dilemma: if I want a 2013 I'll need to order it by 5/26. I want the Premium, Platinum Ice, Shale with Brownstone, Drivers Assist package and 12
    spoke chrome wheels. A few other options also but they can be added later. OR... I
    can wait until the end of the year and look at the 14's. The longer I have to save, the less I'll have to finance. What scares me though is I heard a rumor that the SRX will be replaced with a smaller platform vehicle (CUV vs SUV.). If that's the case, I'm ordering the 13!! Has anyone heard what's coming for 2014? Thanks!

    The srx is a CUV. It always has been. If you want an SUV, get an escalade.

    I guess I wasn't very clear. The rumor I heard was the new 14, smaller platform, would compete with Audi Q5, Acura RDX, etc - the smaller CUV's. Escalade way too big. SRX perfect

    If you think it is perfect now, order exactly what you want. Also, most all the bugs have been worked out of the 10-13 platform, you may not want to be a beta tester for a new redesign 2014.

    Order the 2013, you won't be unhappy...You are assured that the price on the 2014 will be up a grand or more!!!! If you are happy with 2013 get it now and enjoy the ride...I love my 2013, so much better than the 2010, especially the 3.6 engine..So much smoother then the 3.0...

    The mid cycle enhancement just happened in 2013, so no major changes are scheduled for the SRX for at least another 3-4 years.
    When you turn your car on, does it return the favour? '14 Cadillac ATS Performance 3.6L AWD in Phantom Grey Metallic and Morello Red Interior -ARRIVED!!

    I'm a 1st time SRX guy but let me tell you, I really enjoy the smoothness and power my 2.8 turbo has to it. Mine is a 2010. No complaints here.

    The 2013 SRX just received a "Refresh" and will not change in 2014. The new 2013 is a great vehicle and you will not be disappointed if you ordered one now. It is your call ... if you are in no rush to get the 2013 SRX you could wait a little longer to order a 2014 but remember in waiting you will most likely see a slight price increase on the 2014.

    Hey... what every you decide to do you definitely won't be disappointed!

    Re: SRX Order 2013 or wait for 2014?

    If it were me I would wait for the 2014 because the 2013 has the first iteration of CUE. I learned the hard way about buying something the first year it's released. There will most likely be CUE updates you'd be better off having. What if they update it to a faster processor?

    Hmmmm, good point Steve. I wish the 14's would come out before the cutoff date to order the 13's!

    Then they should replace the faulty 2013 system with the 2014 processor. They could also take away some features for 2014 in the name of saving costs, like they have done with countless other vehicles.
