An enhanced version of the Super Cruise1 driver assistance feature will be introduced starting on the 2021 Cadillac CT5 and CT4 and followed by the all-new 2021 Cadillac Escalade. Among the enhancements will be automated lane change functionality, which will allow the hands-free system to change lanes on compatible highways when requested by the driver and certain conditions are met.
“This is our most extensive update we’ve made to Super Cruise since its debut,” said Mario Maiorana, Super Cruise chief engineer. “We have made a number of improvements to make Super Cruise more intuitive, better performing and more accessible for our customers. In addition to the automated lane change functionality, we’ve made improvements to the user interface and hands-free driving dynamics.”
The enhancements to Super Cruise were made possible by General Motors’ all-new digital vehicle platform, which provides more electrical bandwidth and data processing power.
Revealed to customers through a social media campaign that virtually puts viewers in the driver’s seat simulating the car’s liberating drive experience, the 2020 CT4 is poised to appeal to a new generation of sport-luxury customers. The CT4 offers plenty for the senses, starting with its RWD proportions and an athletic design. A bold color-and-trim palette featuring 11 exterior color options along with eight distinct interior color, material and trim options, customers will have no trouble making a statement.
Driven by an all-turbocharged propulsion portfolio and leveraging Cadillac’s award-winning rear-wheel-drive architecture (AWD available on every model), the CT4 delivers a driving experience unmatched by front-drive competitors. It also incorporates the latest Cadillac technologies, including available Super Cruise1 (available in calendar year 2020), the world’s first true hands-free driver assistance feature for more than 200,000 miles of compatible highways in the U.S. and Canada.
