ECO button on 2012 SRX


Asked by May 18, 2013 at 10:44 AM about the 2012 Cadillac SRX Premium

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The 2012 SRX has an ECO function that can be turned on or off. The owners manual does not seem to elaborate on what that setting actually does and /or how or what it helps. Is it nothing more than some cars where the ECO setting does not do anything except change the start gear from 1st to 2nd.? Greatly appreciate your help. Thanks.

1 Answer


An eco button remaps shift points and increases the time that fuel is cut off during deceleration, slightly improving fuel economy.
