2013 Cadillac SRX gets new rear-entertainment package with Blu-Ray DVD player

The new 2013 Cadillac SRX will now offer the brand’s signature CUE infotainment/connectivity system. However, GM announced today its taking things a step further with an entertainment package for rear-seat passengers featuring a Blu-Ray DVD player. The package will also feature a redesigned kid-tested gaming-style remote control that allows each of the 8-inch flip-up rear screens to play unique media.

The system will have a dual-play capability feature, allowing one user to play a video game on one monitor while another user watches a movie or listens to the radio.

“Having multiple media connectivity options really gives owners flexibility with entertainment, especially families,” said Charlene Goike, rear seat entertainment lead engineer. “One can easily pop in their camera’s SD cards on the way home from their kid’s sports games to let the young ones instantly relive the action.”

The rear-seat entertainment package will be available as an option on Luxury (with navigation,) Performance and Premium SRX trim models and will retail for $1,595.
