Media, GM Authority included, was invited to participate in various legs of the journey, which will span 16 states from the east to west coast of the country. Cleveland, Ohio; Chicago, Illinois; Memphis, Tennessee; Dallas, Texas; Santa Fe, New Mexico and Phoenix, Arizona, will all see pitstops by the semi self-driving CT6s.
In total, the 2018 Cadillac CT6 sedans will cover 130,000 miles, and most will be done completely hands-free across various interstates and freeways.
“Cadillac is setting new industry standards with ground-breaking driver assistance technologies like Super Cruise, the world’s first true hands-free driving system for the freeway,” said Johan de Nysschen, Cadillac president. “We are excited to bring Super Cruise, a true testament to Cadillac’s innovative spirit and technical capability, on its first-ever hands-free drive on freeways from coast to coast.”
The 2018 Cadillac CT6 in Platinum trim will arrive standard with Super Cruise, but the system will be a $5,000 option on the Cadillac CT6’s Premium Luxury trim. A CT6 Platinum with Super Cruise will ring in at $85,290, while a CT6 Premium Luxury with the Super Cruise option will cost $71,300 when they both go on sale this fall.
