Cadillac is just now rolling out its first production vehicle equipped with Super Cruise semi self-driving technology, but Cadillac’s follow-up act isn’t far behind.
New spy shots show the 2019 Cadillac XT4 still covered in camouflage, but this time, we can see sensors that correspond to Super Cruise technology. Notably, the front grille and rearview mirror house them. Cadillac pegs Super Cruise as the industry’s first true hands-free driving technology for the highway. The system does not work on side streets or local roads—only on divided highways with on- and off-ramps.
Other than the addition of Super Cruise, there’s not much else to report about the crossover and many of its specifics remain unknown. We know the crossover is likely riding on GM’s E2 platform, which underpins the Chevrolet Malibu and Buick Regal. Cadillac previously said to expect new and efficient engines with the XT4 as well. We’ve also spied the XT4 with what appears to be a plug-in port, which means a plug-in hybrid variant is all but confirmed.
Super Cruise is a $5,000 option on the CT6 Premium Luxury trim, which means a $71,300 2018 CT6 is the least expensive way to gain the semi-autonomous system. Super Cruise is standard on the CT6 Platinum trim. We’ll likely see the system standard on the XT4 Platinum trim as well.
