Perhaps the biggest letdown from the 2019 Cadillac XT4 is the fact it will not feature Super Cruise, the brand’s hands-free driving system for the highway. Previous spy shots indicated the crossover was ready to roll with the system onboard.
However, Cadillac spokesperson, Donny Nordlicht, told Motor Authority in a Thursday report that Super Cruise will not be available at launch. He hinted it could come later in the vehicle’s lifecycle, but he did not float a clear introduction date. Cadillac President Johan de Nysschen also confirmed Super Cruise will not be available at launch.
But, the Cadillac boss said the system will “eventually” make its way to the XT4. He added the brand’s lifecycle strategy will see Super Cruise come at a later date.
That leaves the 2019 Cadillac CT6 as the only model equipped with the semi self-driving system. Super Cruise is a $5,000 option on the Premium Luxury trim, though it’s standard on the range-topping CT6 Platinum.
