    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's Super Cruise system is getting a major upgrade just in time for the 2021 CT4 and CT5. The system will now be able to automatically change lanes whenever the driver taps or fully engages the turn signal stalk. The vehicle will signal and look for a safe gap before making the maneuver. Information as to which step the system is on is shown to driver in the instrument cluster.
      “This is our most extensive update we’ve made to Super Cruise since its debut. 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,”  said Mario Maiorana, Super Cruise chief engineer in a statement.
      This upgrade is due in part to GM's new digital vehicle platform that allows for more "electrical bandwidth and data processing power." Other improvements include better rear-facing sensors and updated software.
      Following the CT4 and CT5, the updated Super Cruise system will appear on the upcoming 2021 Escalade. That brings us to an interesting item caught by the folks at Roadshow. The picture Cadillac used in the press release has the rear end of the next-generation model expected to debut next month.

      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.

    • it always is because they package the bigger motor in a trim and package level that adds several thousand to the price of the vehicle. compare that 1.5 and 2.0 motor.....4 cylinders, 16 valves, a crankshaft, fuel system... there's not much actual physical difference inbetween the two motors that warrants the huge price jump, just a slight size increase.  By itself if you priced the upgraded motor standalone at 995 bucks (which is about right) and weren't forced to underproduce it because of CAFE I guarantee that take rate would be 50% at least. Bronco Sport looks like a reincarnation of the original Escape......
    • Wait, you mean STELLANTIS   now right? LOL  (cue the male enhancement music)
    • You know what is crazy right now.  Chevy dealers hardly have inventory, except for all those new 2021 3 cylinder trailblazers from NotMuhrica (funny how that works, huh). And they are selling like crazy, i see a bunch of them out on the roads ALREADY. with those 1.2 and 1.3 3 cylinder motors and all.   I'm pretty sure the salesman never says it a 3 cylinder, or that its a 1.2 or 1.3.  They just tell the customer its 'turbocharged' and all of sudden they believe its fast.  Turbo = racing ya know!!!  Who cares about the engine, tell me how i can play with my phone in the car!!!! A coworker who loves his IMpreza Crosstrek manual, sounds like his wife is angling him to get rid of the small ride and stick....he was asking me about all the compact SUV's, including the Equinox.  He would want a 2.0, i told him get that 2.0 before the cancel culture cancels it in 2021.  We are conditioned to believe a 1.5 is a normal size motor, and pushing down to 3 cylinder 1.2 and 1.3,  Now, not I, I would want the Blazer with 3.6.  My ideal for next car is a twin turbo 6.  Will I find one, and one that I can afford?  Probably not, unless i can resolve the internal battle of CT5 C pillar or not.... Point being, maybe once they have beaten us all down into thinking a 1.3 litre subcompact CUV is luxury...then they will flip the switch and roll out the mass charging network and cheap EV's.....  By that point a 10 second 0-60 on that 3 cylinder won't seem so desirable vs an EV with some torque.  Maybe by then the Bolts will be selling like hotcakes!!!! I hope all these hot Cadillacs will be great used car buys in 7-10 years before the brand implodes due to 200,000 dollar weird looking and weirdly named EV's that almost no one will buy......
