Usage of the myCadillac app has increased nearly 50 percent in 2017. The mobile app became available in 2010, providing Cadillac owners unprecedented connectivity to their vehicles. Today it is available on every Cadillac vehicle model-year 2011 and newer. The myCadillac app will seamlessly integrate with Apple Watch running WatchOS 3.
The 2018 Cadillac CT6 will feature Super Cruise™, the industry’s first true hands-free driving technology for the highway. Unlike other driver assistance systems, Super Cruise™ utilizes two advanced technology systems — a driver attention system and precision LiDAR map data — to ensure safe and confident vehicle operation.
These systems are added to the network of cameras and radar sensors in the CT6, providing a more data-rich approach to driver assistance that is unique in the industry.
Super Cruise™ delivers comfort and convenience for long-distance travels and daily commutes. In addition, its hands-free capability and driver attention system help the driver safely complete common tasks in the car, such as using the navigation system, adjusting the audio system or taking a phone call.
