Cadillac and GMC Helping the Environment With FlexFuel
FlexFuel is a beautiful thing, folks. Aside from the fact that the E85 ethanol most FlexFuel vehicles use is less expensive than straight-up gasoline, it’s also healthier for the environment. Generally speaking, the ethanol fuel sends 21% fewer carbon emissions into the atmosphere than standard fuel, and that combined with the cash consumers save at the pump seems like more than enough of a reason to buy an automobile with the FlexFuel option.
It’s a good thing GM sells 20 of them, including four Cadillac models.
Those four models include the Cadillac Escalade, Escalade ESV, Escalade EST, and SRX, the last of which was added for the 2012 model year. The Escalades all had their FlexFuel tanks in previous models, but the SRX, our smooth little SUV, is the most recent addition to the club. For dealerships like ourselves who sell 2012 Cadillac SRX to Milwaukee patrons, that’s obviously good news.
It’s also worth noting that the 3.6-liter direct-injection V6 engine we offer in the SRX is new to the mix this year, too. Having all those engines and all those models available for saving money and saving the environment makes us proud of our fleet. Knowing that there are sixteen other Buick, GMC, and Chevrolet models that offer FlexFuel, too, makes us even prouder to be part of the GM family. Expect more and more of these vehicles to be offered moving forward, and in the meantime, give some consideration to a FlexFuel vehicle for your next car. There are just too many good reasons to make that your next car purchase.
