What is Cadillac Super Cruise?

Cadillac steering wheel

Cadillac has been an innovator in automotive technology for over a century, so it makes sense that the first glimpse of hands-free driving Boca Raton drivers will get comes from Cadillac. Many new Cadillac models come with Cadillac Super Cruise, a driver assist technology that, under proper conditions, allows for hands-free driving. Let Sheehan Cadillac introduce you to Cadillac hands-free driving. 

How Does This Cadillac Hands Free Driving System Work?

The Cadillac Super Cruise is a hands free, driver assistance system available on more than 130,000 miles of limited-access freeways separated from opposing traffic. Cadillac hands free driving makes long drivers more comfortable. Handsfree driving is an extension of Adaptive Cruise Control, which controls acceleration and braking when it’s enabled. Cadillac hands free driving also uses OnStar® and precision LiDAR mapping along with in-car cameras, radar sensors, and GPS to know what’s on the road ahead. Cadillac Super Cruise includes a three-year subscription to OnStar®.

How to Activate Cadillac Hands Free Driving

Pompano Beach drivers who want to try Cadillac hands free driving can do so in three easy steps:

  1. Press the Adaptive Cruise Control button on the steering wheel to turn it on. The symbol on the instrument cluster will illuminate in WHITE. If the adaptive cruise control is already set, the symbol will be GREEN with the speed shown. Some features need to be set as follows.
    • Adaptive Cruise Control Is: ON
    • Forward Collision System Set To: ALERT AND BRAKE
    • Teen Driver is: OFF
  2. The Cadillac Super Cruise symbol will illuminate WHITE on the instrument cluster when the system detects that you’re on a limited-access freeway, you’re paying enough attention, and these conditions are met: 
    • Lane markings visible
    • GPA available
    • NO system faults
  3. When it’s safe, press the Super Cruise button on the steering wheel to engage the system. The symbol and the steering wheel light bar will illuminate GREEN, and you can remove your hands from the steering wheel. Do not remove your hands from the wheel unless the light bar is green. If you want to disengage, press the Super Cruise button again or press the brake pedal.

When Not To Use Super Cruise

There are situations when Super Cruise should not be activated:

  • When you’re not on a limited-access freeway separated from opposing traffic
  • During difficult or uncertain driving conditions 
  • When lane markings are hard to see, or you have limited visibility
  • In a tunnel or construction zones
  • In slippery or other adverse conditions like rain, sleet, fog snow, or ice
  • When towing a trailer
  • When in a freeway exit lane, as Super Cruise is not designed to operate in this area
