Standard is a 6-speed automatic transmission that includes a driver-selected Eco feature designed to add 1 mpg in city and highway driving, due to modified shift points. The SRX is equipped with front-wheel drive (FWD), with an optional all-wheel-drive (AWD) system available.

EPA fuel-economy estimates for the 2013 Cadillac SRX are:
  • SRX FWD: 17/24/19 mpg (city/highway/combined)

Cadillac also offers an adaptive cruise control system, forward collision alert, automatic front and rear braking, side blind-zone alert, rear cross-traffic alert, lane-departure warning system, HID headlights with adaptive forward lighting, reversing camera, and rain-sensing wipers.

Official crash-test results were not available for the 2013 SRX when this overview was written.
