Cadillac today announced the next-generation Cadillac user experience system, which offers a more personalized, intuitive interface, and debuts in the Cadillac CTS, beginning with the 2017 interim model year, arriving at U.S. dealerships during the first quarter. Cadillac plans to include the system in XTS and ATS sedans with the start of 2018 model year production. Cadillac’s other product lines are scheduled to adopt the system in future model years.
The next-generation Cadillac user experience is a dynamic platform that can be adjusted over time to meet a customer’s evolving connectivity needs, leveraging the cloud to enable personalization, available connected navigation, and applications via the Collection app store.
With functionality that applies popular apps and smartphone practices in the vehicle, the new user experience system provides customers with easier access to the most common features. The more intuitive operation includes a Summary View in which all key applications – climate, audio, phone and navigation – are displayed on one screen.
