Cadillac has unleashed what it is labeling the world’s first true hands-free driving system designed for the freeway: Cadillac Super Cruise™. This amazing technology is available on the 2018 Cadillac CT6 and can only be used on limited-access freeways separated from oncoming traffic.
To engage Cadillac Super Cruise™, you have to first meet a number of criteria. Teen Driver cannot be active, but Adaptive Cruise Control must be turned on and the Forward Collision System should be set to alert and brake. The camera and radar sensors must have clear vision, the lane markings must be clearly visible (e.g. snow on the ground would prevent the tech from engaging), and the driver must be attentive. Finally, the car must be on a limited-access freeway.
To turn on Cadillac Super Cruise™, simply meet these safety criteria and press the Super Cruise button located on the steering wheel. You should only take your hands off the steering wheel if the bar on the wheel is illuminated green. To turn off Super Cruise™, simply press the button again or take your foot off the steering wheel.
As an added safety measure, the CT6 constantly monitors drivers to ensure they are paying attention, sending alerts when they are not and ultimately disengaging Super Cruise™ when the driver does not react.
