Cadillac Is Adding 70,000 Miles of Super Cruise Compatible Highways in 2019

Cadillac’s Super Cruise is one of the most advanced semi-autonomous driving systems in the industry. Touted as the first-ever hands-free highway driving tech, Cadillac has announced that it will increase the Super Cruise compatible highway network by an additional 70,000 miles in the United States and Canada by the end of 2019. This addition will bring the total Super Cruise network to more than 200,000 total miles where hands-free driver assistance is available.

Super Cruise uses a combination of GPS, LIDAR map data and a network of cameras and radar sensors to be one of the most sophisticated technology suites of its kind. All of these components work together to create a semi-autonomous driving system that allows you to take your hands off the wheel, but still requires the driver to stay alert and keep their eyes on the road.

If you own a Cadillac equipped with Super Cruise, there’s nothing you need to do to get the updated mapping. Updates for 2018 and 2019 Cadillac models with this technology will be updated over the air throughout summer and fall of this year as more miles are added to the Super Cruise network.

“We are constantly working to make Super Cruise the most beneficial system for our customers,” said Mario Maiorana, Super Cruise chief engineer in a statement. “Expanding our offering of compatible highways will allow people the ease and convenience of traveling hands-free more often.”

As of this writing, the Cadillac CT6 is the only model available with Super Cruise, but it’s been confirmed that the all-new CT5 midsize sedan coming out next year will also be available with this technology. So far, Cadillac drivers have logged 2.5 million miles using Super Cruise and we have a feeling that number will get a lot higher with this new expansion and as it becomes available on more models.
