It was only a matter of time, and in two years, Cadillac will begin rolling out Super Cruise to every one of its vehicles.
The luxury brand made the announcement on Wednesday and also confirmed plans to add vehicle-to-X (vehicle-to-vehicle, vehicle-to-infrastructure) technology to a high-volume crossover in 2023, potentially the Cadillac XT6.
Super Cruise first debuted with the 2018 Cadillac CT6 last year. The system uses advanced mapping, GPS, Lidar and a driver-attention system to create a hands-free driving experience on divided freeways and highways. Super Cruise will handle all driving functions in the right conditions and also keep tabs on the driver’s attention to ensure he or she still pays attention is ready to retake control at any moment.
In the event a driver does not respond to audible warnings, Super Cruise will engage the hazards and pull the car off to a controlled stop while contacting OnStar.
After 2020, GM will also begin to introduce Super Cruise to additional brands.
