A new and improved version of the brand’s driver assistance feature will be available on 2021 models.
A new version of Super Cruise, which will be introduced on the 2021 Cadillac CT5 and CT4 and Escalade, will include an automated lane change feature.
Once the driver taps, or fully engages, the turn signal to indicate a lane change, the system looks for an acceptable opening in the adjacent lane, and if the system determines that the lane is open, the vehicle changes lanes.
“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.”
Cadillac says they have improved their Super Cruise technology by adding richer map information to enable automated lane change and improved functionality through turns and highway interchanges, by upgrading software for better steering and speed control, and by making the technology more intuitive for drivers to use.
