Super Cruise to Expand Beyond Cadillac in 2020

Soon it won’t just be Cadillacs with Super Cruise semi-autonomous technology, as GM plans to expand the feature to the rest of its brands starting in 2020.

The company had long said that the service would be expanded beyond Cadillac, but this is the first time that GM has actually provided a timeline for the expansion.

Super Cruise allows drivers to take their hands off the wheel on certain highways in the US and Canada, though it still requires the driver to pay attention at all times.

The system premiered on certain 2018 CT6 trims and will expand to the whole Cadillac lineup by 2020, when it moves over to certain other GM brands—so far we don’t know what non-Cadillac car will premiere the technology.

Cadillac will still be the leader in futuristic technology, though, as it also announced that it plans to offer vehicle-to-everything (V2X) technology as of 2023. V2X allows a cars to communicate with each other as well as infrastructure to gain vital information such as road hazards and route changes before the driver even sees them.

The technology is seen by many automakers as a vital tool for making autonomous vehicles work properly.

“GM is just as committed to ushering in a new era of personal transportation, and technologies like these will enable it,” said Mark Reuss, head of product development, in a statement.
