Cadillac looks to be the first American brand to launch HD Radio with its first-ever CUE infotainment system. For those that have never heard of HD Radio before, it’s a separate entity from both satellite and internet radio. In a nutshell, it’s a a digital broadcasting format for AM and FM stations in the United States.
The format allows for more sound clarity, along with digital channels, of which there are 1,300 stations nationwide that can only be heard through HD Radio. Drivers can also pause the live radio for a max of twenty minutes if they have to. Look for CUE in the first-ever Cadillac XTS in the spring of 2012.
