You Can Already Get a Cadillac CT6 With Super Cruise for Under $50,000

If you’re looking for a car that drives itself, it’s worth noting that most vehicles won’t — even cars that advertise advanced automated driving systems usually require you to check in by briefly putting your hands on the wheel every 30 seconds or so. The Cadillac CT6 is a notable exception, as it offers true hands-free driving on most highways using a system called Super Cruise. And now, CT6 models equipped with Super Cruise are getting cheap.

OK, well, they aren’t exactly “cheap,” as the lowest-priced examples are just under $50,000. In fact, when you do a search on Autotrader for CT6 models including Super Cruise, only about five come up for $50,000 or less in the entire country. But given that this feature just came out last year, it’s clear that the CT6 is losing value quickly — and it won’t be long before more Super Cruise-equipped models are under $50,000, and soon even less.

I find this particularly impressive for two reasons. One, the sticker price on many CT6 models equipped with Super Cruise is in excess of $70,000, so these are dropping in value quickly — and they’re a good bargain compared to the new price. Some even include Cadillac’s long certified pre-owned warranty.

The other impressive item, of course, is the fact that some of the most advanced self-driving technology on the market is now available for an increasingly affordable price. On most highways, the CT6 will truly allow you to remove your hands from the wheel for minutes — or, theoretically, even hours — at a time, driving itself, steering, and working the brakes like few other cars can do. And this technology isn’t limited to some 6-figure luxury car, but rather a sub-$50,000 used Cadillac!

It’s very appealing — and for those who do a lot of highway commuting, the technology alone makes this car worth serious consideration, even if a full-size Cadillac luxury sedan hasn’t been on your shopping list before.

  1. Meanwhile trying to find any new German luxury car with adaptive cruise under $50k is nearly impossible (at least in St. Louis). I had to just give up and buy one without it!

    • I didn’t get it on my 3-series but I get teased when sunlight hits the dash just right and I can see the graphics for it… Honestly I’m not crazy about self-driving tech as it paves the way for mandatory self-driving vehicles and I’m not ready to surrender my driving privileges in favor of an AI who may not be able to drive in all situations and weather.
