    Cadillac SuperCruise Adds Miles

      ...another 70,000 miles of roadways are now SuperCruise capable...

       

    Cadillac SuperCruise will be available on over 200,000 miles of North American roadways later this year.  Cadillac is adding an additional 70,000 miles to the existing 130,000 miles already in the system by the 4th quarter 2019.  Cadillac owners will receive an over-the-air update once the system upgrade is completed. 

    On top of the increase in SuperCruise map availability, Cadillac will also make system adjustments to improve performance and enhancements to the Driver Attention system.   Last year Cadillac updated the system so that the car would automatically adjust lane centering if a large vehicle was passing close by and also added additional messages in the driver cluster to give more detail as to why SuperCruise may not be available at the moment. 

    Cadillac says that CT6 owners have driven more than 2.5 million miles with SuperCruise active since it was introduced on 2018 model year vehicles.

    That is very cool and I am excited to see them add more and more highways to it. I wonder how long before they go and add Mexico? 🤔

    I'd love to pilot a vehicle with one of these advanced systems. I'd just like to see what they're like.

    BTW, I LOVE supercruise.  I wish I had the budget for a Cadillac with Supercruise.  It is the killer app for me in a car and would make me overlook some of the styling issues I've seen lately.

    Considering how many miles I put on my Escalade yearly all road trip miles, I would love this feature. I hope they roll it out on the next generation. I see no reason not too.

    Drew, is there a timeline when the whole Cadillac family gets Supercruise?

    All new Cadillacs will have it as an option.  The XT4 will get is and I would expect the XT5 to get it at its next refresh.

    Now that is good news.  Sounds like Cadillac will have a unique selling point for the first time in decades.  Now if only we can get luxury buyers to ditch Lexus and the Germans . . . . .

    What about the XT7? 

    The XT6 has not been released yet.  It probably will have SupperCruise sometime soon, as will the (currently nonexistent) XT7.

    That may be the case since is it based on a pre-supercruise platform.  If so, then the XT5 may not get it either.

    However, I do remember Cadillac saying that the entire lineup would have SC available sometime in the very near future. I want to say MY 2021 or something (which would be the correct timing for the new Escalade)

    Maybe because this is a preexisting platform by 2021 there will be a heavy refresh or new one on deck already..?

    If Super Cruise is not on the XT6, that would be a mistake for Cadillac.

    The only reason I remember this is because I remember thinking it was ridiculous that their new, large,CUV, that is supposed to compete with the big BMW and Merc, didn't have their latest and greatest technology. I remember specifically being disappointed in its lack of SuperCruise.

      Cadillac President Steve Carlisle said that when Cadillac starts rolling out its electric vehicles, it will use actual words for model names instead of the alphanumeric scheme currently used on its cars and SUVs.  Cadillac's move away from names started in 2003 with the Cadillac CTS. Over time, the Seville and Deville were converted to STS and DTS respectively. Later, the scheme was changed to alphanumeric when Johan de Nysschen joined the company as President.
      Cadillac will be taking the lead on GM's push to introduce 20 new all-electric vehicles around the globe by 2023.  Carlisle said that by 2030, the majority, if not all, Cadillacs will be battery electric vehicles. The recently release set of vehicles, CT4, CT5, XT4, and XT5, will get one more round of refreshes before transitioning to a BEV platform late in the decade. 
      The next introduction is the Cadillac Escalade, which will be officially introduced in February, though pictures of the 2021 Escalade have already leaked online. Cadillac's SuperCruise hands-free driver-assist system will eventually be offered on the Escalade with additional functionality not currently included in the system. There are strong hints that this version of SuperCruise will include lane change ability.

      Just a day after the 2021 Suburban and Tahoe debuted the Cadillac Escalade has also leaked out online.  As expected, the side profile still looks like the Tahoe/Suburban, however it apparently does still sport the vertical tail lights of the current generation vehicle.  Inside is a decidedly upgraded interior. The gauge cluster is dual screen and flows into the infotainment system.  Like the Chevy twins, the column shifter is gone, in this case replaced by Cadillac's Precision Control Shift. A dial to control the infotainment system similar to that on the XT6 is visible as well. 

      The Escalade will be powered by the same 6.2 liter V8 offered as an upgrade in the Suburban and Tahoe, but a supercharged version could make its way into the engine room at a later date as well finally giving the Escalade a V version. Expect the same wheelbase and space increases gained on the Chevies. 
      The Escalade will be debuting officially soon, so keep it tuned here for more updates as they come out.
