"Engine Power Reduced"???

I know this is a Camaro forum but I also own a 2008 Cadillac SRX V6 that has virtually the same engine as our V6.
I made a 500 mile trip in it today and with about 30 miles to go I freak when I see "Engine Power Reduced" being displayed in the DIC!
Sure enough you could tell the power was reduced and on a couple longish medium grade hills I had to go up to get home it slowed to about 35 before I crested the incline and it would slowly pick up momentum and speed.
I was "afraid" to just pull over 'cause I thought it might just quit on me. It didn't seem to be knocking or smoking or anything like that and when I got home and popped the hood nothing looked obviously wrong.
At a couple stop lights near home it seemed like it was struggling to keep normal revs up or something.
Anybody have any ideas what the hell this could be or what I should check?!

Check oil level first thing.....(should be checked every few fill ups).

What mods do you have?
