Cadillac has refreshed the SRX crossover again for 2013. The update follows last year’s engine shakeup in which the rig’s two less-than-stellar V-6s were nixed for a single, better one with more power. This latest upgrade brings a passel of technology to Caddy’s strong-selling crossover, along with some subtle changes to the exterior. Befitting the SRX’s glam-luxe pretensions, Cadillac is premiering the 2013 model at the 2012 New York auto show.

The 2013 SRX’s biggest change is the addition of Cadillac’s CUE infotainment system as standard across the lineup. We sampled CUE last year and found that it performed its functions quite well. In the SRX, CUE is operated via a dashboard mounted, eight-inch LCD touch screen. The screen flips out of the way to reveal a storage compartment in which a cell phone or MP3 player can be stashed. Cadillac even fitted the compartment with a USB port, so you can plug in a device and hide it out of the way. In fact, there are two more USB ports buried in the center console thereby tripling the total USB count of the 2012 model in addition to an SD-card slot and an auxiliary audio input jack.

2013 Cadillac SRX Interior :
Despite having been on sale since 2009, the SRX’s styling sees only two minor tweaks. The grille and front fascia are new, and feature more elaborate detailing like that on the upcoming ATS and XTS sedans. The SRX still has fake chrome fender vents just aft of its front wheels, but Cadillac has added an LED light tube behind the faux portal. We’d wager the move calls even more attention to the vents’ fakeness than the chrome piece did on its own, but at least the backlighting concept is somewhat original. Otherwise, the Performance and Premium trim levels get new 20-inch wheel designs, and three new metallic paint colors are added to the SRX’s palette: Evolution Green, Glacier Blue, and Silver Coast.

While Cadillac’s efforts centered on improving the interior, the 2013 SRX also gets a minor face-lift front and rear. The new SRX features a refreshed upper and lower grille, along with new front fender vents that incorporate LED light pipes. Cadillac also gives the 2013 SRX some new dub love in the form of chrome and polished aluminum 20-inch wheels as part of the SRX Performance and SRX Premium collections the two highest trim levels. The Escalade would be proud.

The base model comes equipped with 18-inch alloy wheels, automatic headlights, roof rails, keyless entry, remote engine start, dual-zone automatic climate control, premium vinyl upholstery, an eight-way power driver seat, a reclining and 60/40 split-folding rear seat, cruise control and a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel. The CUE infotainment-control system with an 8-inch display is also standard, as are OnStar, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity and an eight-speaker sound system with a CD player, satellite and HD radio, two USB ports and an auxiliary audio jack.

Move up to the SRX Luxury and you get front and rear parking sensors, blind-spot and cross-traffic alert, a rearview camera, rain-sensing wipers, a panoramic sunroof, keyless ignition/entry and a power liftgate with adjustable opening height. Inside the cabin there’s leather upholstery, adjustable thigh support for the driver seat, an eight-way power passenger seat, heated front seats and steering wheel, driver memory functions, power-adjustable pedals, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, interior accent lighting and a cargo management system. A voice-activated navigation system and a 10-speaker Bose surround-sound audio system are optional.

2013 Cadillac SRX Exterior :
For 2013 the Cadillac SRX receives a revised interior centered around the introduction of the brand’s “Cadillac User Experience” (CUE) infotainment interface. The heart of the CUE system is an interactive screen with gesture controls similar to those that made Apple products so ubiquitous. If you’re a fan of simpler controls and a minimalist aesthetic, it’s all for the better. Probably no interface approach is ever going to be perfect for everyone, but CUE is quite effective for many tasks. Also, adopting CUE has definitely cleaned up what before was a virtual shotgun blast of buttons on the SRX’s center stack.

The visual impact from the CUE cleanup and the new instrument-cluster capabilities helps to impart a serious high-tech overtone for what already was one of the better luxury crossover interiors. Some new interior color combinations lend an airy vibe and the high-quality look and feel of the SRX’s interior trim is highlighted by generally good fit and finish. We wish some of the wood accents didn’t look quite so polished, but the overall impression is an excellent blend of technology-meets-luxury.

There’s ample (if not overly generous) room for four adults, although the roof line — particularly if the optional panoramic sunroof is in place — definitely can pinch those in the rear. Cargo room is about average for the class: 30 cubic feet behind the rear seats and 61 cubic feet with both sections of the 60/40-split rear seatbacks folded down.

Meanwhile, Cadillac isn’t standing still with the SRX’s safety profile, either. The new-for-2013 Driver Assist and Driver Awareness packages introduce automatic-braking technologies that help to reduce the chance of low-speed impacts. The 2013 SRX also joins Cadillac’s XTS and ATS sedans in using the new, vibrating Safety Alert Seat to warn that the car’s sensors have detected an impending dangerous situation. The optional wiggle-my-seat warning system might not appeal to everyone (it can be turned off), but it is a unique approach.

2013 Cadillac SRX Engine :
The engine choice for the 2013 Cadillac SRX is simple, since every model features a 3.6-liter V6 that generates 308 horsepower and 265 pound-feet of torque. A six-speed automatic is the only transmission offered. Front-wheel drive is standard, but all-wheel drive is available for any SRX trim. When Edmunds tested a front-drive SRX Performance, it ran from zero to 60 mph in 7.1 seconds, an average time for compact luxury crossovers.

In terms of fuel economy, the SRX’s heft helps put it slightly below average, with an EPA-estimated 17 mpg city/24 mpg highway and 19 mpg combined for front-drive models and 16/23/18 for AWD. There is a switchable Eco driving mode that Cadillac claims can improve fuel economy by up to 1 mpg.

In the powertrain department, however, the song remains the same. Cadillac recently fitted the SRX with a version of GM’s ubiquitous 3.6-liter V-6 as its only engine option, which produces a healthy 308 hp and 265 lb-ft of torque. Power is routed to the front or all wheels through a six-speed automatic transmission. Fuel economy will be unchanged remaining at 17/24 mpg city/highway for the front-drive model, and 16/23 mpg for the all wheel drive SRX. The changes made to the all-new 2013 Cadillac SRX are forgive the pun right on CUE. These minor updates will likely help the SRX retain its position as Cadillac’s best-seller, and help pay for lower-volume products like the CTS-V Wagon and the upcoming ATS-V. The new standard of the world then, starts here and now.
