The Cadillac CT4 and Cadillac CT5 luxury sedans combine passenger-coddling cabins with a range of tech features, including the GM Super Cruise semi-autonomous driver assist system. Now, Cadillac CT4 and Cadillac CT5 models equipped with Super Cruise will be eligible to receive an over-the-air update that will add the Automatic Lane Change feature.
Cadillac announced that the over-the-air update will be available this summer, and will be available for a fee. For now, Cadillac has yet to detail how much it will cost owners to get the Automatic Lane Change upgrade.
As GM Authority covered previously, 2021 Cadillac Escalade and 2022 Cadillac Escalade models equipped with Super Cruise are also eligible for the Automatic Lane Change update. In addition, properly equipped Escalade models will be eligible to receive the Super Cruise Trailering feature as well.
To note, approximately 12,000 units of the Cadillac CT4, Cadillac CT5, and Cadillac Escalade are compatible with the new Super Cruise features via the over-the-air update.
For those who may be unaware, the GM Super Cruise technology provides drivers with a hands-free driving experience by assuming control of the vehicle, taking control of the throttle and steering inputs to provide relief to drivers on extended highway stints. The feature was first introduced with the Cadillac CT6, and is currently available for activation on 200,000 miles of North American freeways.
The Automatic Lane Change feature enables the system to automatically initiate a lane change without steering input from the driver.
The over-the-air update and other tech features are powered via GM’s latest Global B electronic architecture. As GM Authority covered previously, Global B also provides additional processing power, more efficient communication among onboard systems, and an improved user experience as compared to previous electronic underpinnings.
As for the greasy bits, the Cadillac CT4 is available with the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LSY gasoline engine and the turbocharged 2.7L I4 L3B gasoline engine, while the Cadillac CT5 can be had with either the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LSY gasoline engine or the twin-turbo 3.0L V6 LGY gasoline engine. Both vehicles ride on the GM Alpha 2 platform, and both are produced at the GM Lansing Grand River plant in Michigan.
