GM Discontinues the Cadillac SRX Turbo

It had been rumored that GM was going to kill off the turbo version of the Cadillac SRX crossover and today it was officially confirmed.

According to Cadillac spokesperson Robyn Henderson, the SRX turbo has been discontinued due to slow sales since over 90 percent of SRX sales have been the 3.0L model. The press also criticized the 300-hp 2.8L turbo SRX for its poor fuel economy (15/22). The 3.0L SRX puts out 265-hp and 223 lb-ft. of torque and gets 18/25 mpg. Henderson also stated that the SRX has a larger share of the market than BMW X3, Audi Q5 and Mercedes-Benz GLK.
