What is CADILLAC Super Cruise™?

Cadillac Supercruise steering wheel


Cadillac Super Cruise™ technology is available in the 2018-2020 CT6; 2021 CT4 and CT5; 2021-2022 Escalade; 2022 XT6; and forthcoming 2023 LYRIQ. It is, as Cadillac describes it, “…the first true hands-free driving-assistance technology for compatible roads”. Ready to learn more about how this technology can transform your drives outside Morrisville and Apex? Check out Cadillac Super Cruise™ reviews and additional information below with Hendrick Cadillac Cary!

How Does CADILLAC Super Cruise™ Work?

GM has said that they want Super Cruise™ technology to facilitate hands-free driving up to around 95% of the time. This is super exciting, but how does it all work? Hendrick Cadillac Cary has the answers about the process that Super Cruise™ Cadillac technology employs, with your input and ongoing observation:

  • Before you ever get behind the wheel, Cadillac creates highly detailed precision LiDAR maps of roads where the feature will be enabled.
  • This data is combined with GPS information—along with data from your vehicle’s cameras and sensors—in order to predict the flow of the road and help you reach your destination safely.

By mapping Super Cruise™-compatible roads in advance, Cadillac has created a hands-free driving technology that works “better than Tesla’s Autopilot”. That’s according to the experts in a recent Cadillac Super Cruise™ review by Motor Trend.

How to Activate Super Cruise™

Wondering how you can activate Super Cruise™ technology and OnStar Connected Services? It all starts with Adaptive Cruise Control:

  1. Turn on Adaptive Cruise Control by pressing the button on your steering wheel. When you set your speed, the indicator will change from white to green.
  2. Ensure that you’re on a road that has been approved for Super Cruise™ travel, and all of the independent conditions are met, the Super Cruise™ indicator will appear in white on your dashboard. (These independent conditions include visible lane markings, available GPS data, an absence of system faults, and an attentive driver.)
  3. After the Super Cruise™ indicator light appears in white, you can press the Super Cruise™ steering wheel button to engage it. *Do not remove your hands from the steering wheel until the light bar—which should appear on your dashboard immediately—turns green.
  4. Once engaged, the system will seamlessly control your speed, create adequate distance between your vehicle and others, and keep you centered in your lane. 
  5. Lane Change on Demand technology is new for 2021! Just set your turn indicator, and the system will find a time and a place to move you into your lane of choice.
  6. You can resume normal driving by pressing the Super Cruise™ button or applying the brake.

When Not To Use Super Cruise™

Here are the scenarios in which you should avoid using Super Cruise™ around Durham, helpful as it may be, listed in no particular order of importance:

  • Whenever lane markings are difficult to see or conditions are obscuring your visibility
  • Whenever you enter a construction zone or a tunnel
  • When road conditions and inclement weather are working against your
  • When entering and exiting the freeway
  • When you’re not separated from oncoming traffic
  • Whenever driving conditions are uncertain or difficult

Although you shouldn’t tow a trailer while using Cadillac Super Cruise™, this capability is likely to be coming to select GM models before the next few years are out.
