Why is the tow capicity (2000 pounds) so low in a rear drive big V-6?


Asked by May 16, 2008 at 08:29 PM about the 2005 Cadillac SRX V6 RWD

Question type: General

Because the SRX is based on the CTS (saloon). Therefore, it is not optimised for towing.


My 07 with Utility Package has a tow rating of 4250 lbs. But the max on the 08 models is 3500 lbs.


The frame obviously won't support a higher tow weight. Trade it and buy something more suitable for you needs.
