General Motors and Cadillac were adamant that Super Cruise would only arrive once it was absolutely ready. No major bugs or bad software would plague the system’s launch. Thus far, the slow-and-steady work is paying off.
CNBC tested the Super Cruise system and went as far to say that the system is a “game-changer.” Although Super Cruise is limited to divided highways, the system worked almost flawlessly every time. Super Cruise tackled each interstate curve with poise, and since GM mapped every stretch of interstate in the U.S. and Canada, the system takes away the guessing game of “will it disengage?”
There were a few hiccups. The publication said the system would not engage at all on mapped interstates sometimes, even though the system worked in the same spot earlier. But, the quirks were limited, and the true hands-free driving outperformed rival systems from Tesla and Volvo.
Currently, Cadillac only offers Super Cruise on the CT6 sedan, but the system may also launch with the 2019 XT4 crossover. Eventually, we imagine every Cadillac will either include or offer the system. The brand will once again become GM’s technology darling; any new technology will debut with Cadillac first and other GM brands later.
