Cadillac News: Cadillac SuperCruise Adds Miles

Recommended Posts

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.

I normally never use cruise control, but this sounds like it would actually be useful.

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)

That is hard to know as even the web site: https://www.cadillac.com/future-concept-vehicles/xt6-crossover-suv

has stated the features are based on a pre-production model and could change.

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

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

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 newest V-series, the CT4-V and CT5-V, disappointed fans when they debuted on May 30th by being substantially less powerful than their predecessors. The CT4-V gets a 2.7-liter turbo four cylinder producing 320 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque, that's a 130 horsepower deficit compared to the ATS-V.   The story for the CT5-V is similar with a 3.0-liter twin-turbo making 355 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque compared to the 640 horsepower of the CTS-V.  GM President Mark Reuss called the previous cars "hammer" and that they intimidated customers. Thus, Cadillac responded by extending the V-series badge down to be more accessible to more customers. 
      Cadillac fans wouldn't have it, and Cadillac was quick to respond saying that more powerful versions of the CT4-V and CT5-V would be on the way, even bringing out higher potency test cars for the Detroit Grand Prix. The CT5-V was rumored to be running with the Blackwing V8, and that car getting the 4.2 Twin-Turbo V8 is not a new rumor. 
      The controversy comes down to what to call the higher powered models when they do arrive. Some fans felt that the models already shown should be V-Sports and the more powerful versions get the V moniker. However, it seems that Cadillac has settled on Blackwing as the name for the high power versions of their V-series, and that name may not be limited to just models with the Blackwing V8, making Blackwing more of a sub-brand for Cadillac like Denali is for GMC.
      What do you think? Is Blackwing a good name for the true high-performance versions of the V-series cars?

      The Cadillac CT6 has been in the news a lot lately.  First it was potentially canceled as its home factory in the U.S. is slated for closure. Then there was the Cadillac Blackwing V8.  Most recently it has dropped both the base 2.0T 4-cylinder and the mid-range (now that there is a V8) 3.0 twin-turbo V6. 
      With all of those changes, there is bound to be some price changes to accompany them.
      For 2020, the CT6 will see a base price rise of $8,500 over the 2019 model to $59,900. With that rise, the base engine becomes the 3.6 liter V6 and AWD standard. It is also adding about $3,500 worth of active safety equipment as standard. 
      Moving up to the Premium Luxury model will add $12,000 to the price tag but comes with Cadillac's famous Super Cruise automated driving system, the rear seat package, the Comfort and Technology package, and the 34-speaker Panaray sound system. At $75,490, that's actually a $2,500 discount on those packages over the 2019 model. 
      The top model, the CT6 Platinum will come standard with the Blackwing V8, replacing the 3.0 twin-turbo on the spec sheet. It also gains 20-inch wheels that were optional last year. 
      While the future of the CT6 is murky, the fact that GM continues to make improvements to the model gives us hope that it will live on.
