It seems that every luxury brand on the market is trying to be something else. Lexus made their name by building Mercedes-style luxury; Lincoln is now imitating Lexus; and even my beloved Infiniti is clearly influenced by BMW. That's one of several reasons I am so fond of the 2012 Cadillac SRX. Here, finally, is a luxury crossover that is doing its own thing. But is that enough to earn your hard-earned SUV-buying dollars? Let's drive it and find out.
