Pacifica vs Cadillac SRX

    The Pacifica is a bit lower, a bit wider, and a bit longer than the
    SRX. It's practically identical in weight. It's also $10k cheaper
    than the SRX. SRX is either RWD or AWD in both V6 and available V8
    (with 320 Hp).

    Chrysler had a vision of a primo hybrid between a station-wagon and

    Looks like Cadillac built it.

    The SRX is built from the CTS, which is made in the US (the Catera was the
    rebadged Opel). But all new Cadillacs are butt-ugly -- SRX, XLR, CTS.

    Yeah, but is the drivetrain in the Cadillac a *real* Cadillac drivetrain
    with a Northstar engine, or is it the same Opel-derived piece of
    excrement they've been peddling in the CTS for a few years? Cadillac's
    stylists should be shot, too. How can the same car company that produced
    the beautifully understated Seville STS in recent years degenerate to
    the Tonka-toy styling of the CTS and SRX.

    Sorry, I'll take the Pacifica any day, even if it is a bit underpowered.
    At least I know it'll be RELIABLE power- the 3.5 is proven.

    Available engines are the 320HP 4.6L Northstar V8 WT or the 260HP 3.6L
    V6 WT (assuming same as used in the CTS). Both engine use the
    "Performance Transmission", which can be used either as a full automatic
    or a clutchless 5-speed manual.

  5. Like the Opel Sigma?

    'Butt'-ugly is right...

    Sorry, because of frames I can't link directly to the photos, but in left
    sidebar is a drop-down menu headed "Opel Automobile".
    Then Galerie/Fotos.

    I had one on rental a few months ago in Germany. Actually it was quite nice
    inside, butI couldn't get to grips with the shape. Reminiscent of the
    'eccentric' Renault Vel Satis.

    The Catera was a re-badged Opel, but (at least up until this year) the
    CTS used an Opel *engine* and not a Cadillac/Northstar design. Check on for a few rants about what a piece of junk it is.

    They still sell the Seville, but I'm sure it's days are numbered.

    "MoPar Man" in his continuing ranting about how old Chryslers are better then
    Don't think so. As the owner of a Pacifica I'll take it anyday over an upscale
    Chevrolet SUV.

    He never mentioned the Escalade. But don't let facts bother you... :)

    I too prefer the Pacifica over the Caddy, but the Caddy in question is
    NOT a re-badged Chevy suv

    Neither did I.

    and followed it with:
    Maybe you should get the facts correct...;-)

    and finished it with:
    Obviously you have not seen the Equinox. Why don't you compare the SRX and the
    Equinox? True, the SRX is a Sigma and the Equinox is a Theta, but to me, at
    least, the SRX only looks like a stretched version of the Equinox. Of course my
    conclusions are based only on photographs. Perhaps after I have seen them in
    person I will have a different opinion.

    The Equinox is a rebadged Saturn VUE. The SRX is built off the CTS. They are
    not related.

    If you're going to make THAT comparison, then the Equinox is more nearly
    a re-badged Cadillac. It never existed as a Chervrolet prior to the SRX.

    You, TOO, ignored my complete post wherein I stated the SRX is a Sigma and the
    Equinox is a Theta. But, of course, you don't bother with that. My point was
    that, to the casual observer (which the majority of the motoring public IS),
    they will look related.The general public will not gave a rats a** as to the
    platform, nor do I. Got it??? Good!!!

    Whatever!!!!!????? They were developed together and the SRX was introduced
    first, but I still hold my opinion and I will continue to hold that opinion. If
    you are going to quote and repsond read the WHOLE statement (remember, I
    followed those two sentences with explanations which, of course, you ignored)
    and don't try to twist things by posting out of context to suit your whims.

    Like saying the Intrepid and the Neon were developed around the same time.
    Non sequitir.

    You know something, Lloyd???? If someone posted "Jesus Saves", you would
    respond "So does Christ" just to argue!!!!

    Go back and read my COMPLETE response and follow-up posting wherein I stated my
    opinion was from the photos I have seen and couild change when I see them in
    person. From the photos they look similar and given how GM, Ford and Chrysler
    have traditionally shared platforms, etc., in developing vehicles it is MY
    OPINION that many will think the same on these, so your response quoted above
    means nothing. But, of course, in your isolated world of education where you
    have no real clue as to what goes on in the real world, you think it does.

    Exactly. So it is absolutely NOT a "Rebadged Chevy SUV" by any definition.
    And I'll stick to fact.

    So, if you are going to stick to fact, STICK TO FACT! My original quote:

    "Don't think so. As the owner of a Pacifica I'll take it anyday over an upscale
    Chevrolet SUV." I don't see re-badged at all in there, and in further posts I
    gave my impression as to what I felt when I saw the pictures and I reserved the
    right to change my opinion after I see both vehicles in person. But, of course,
    you always only quote out of context and edit what you post to.

    I find it amazing that in a Chrysler group you are defending/defining a
    Cadillac and an Equinox, a Sigma and a Theta. I gave up on GM a long, long time
    ago and no matter what you post, whether fact or not, I will stick to my
    opinion. Got it Stevie-boy??? Good!!!! Now let's see if you respond as I think
    you will. C'mon, Stevie-boy, don't let me, or the group, down.

    after seeing the pacifica's on the road awhile now i can say there the car has
    some issues and it's not the kind your local garage guy can deal with. the factory
    service manuals are full of incorrect repair info the car sure isn't worth the
    money they want for it

    Well, dish it out then. If it's got issues, we're dying to know what they
    are, and you're one of the guys in the best position to tell us.

    Give us some examples of how the FSM is wrong, too.
