Even while using the Super Cruise driver assistance feature, always pay attention while driving and do not use a hand-held device. Visit cadillacsupercruise.com for compatible highways and more information.  Requires active OnStar plan, active WiFi Hotspot, working electrical system, cell reception and GPS signal.

HOW TO USE SUPER CRUISE

Super Cruise driver assistance feature is available only on compatible highways that are separated from opposing traffic.

HOW IT WORKS

With an attentive driver, and under the proper conditions, Super Cruise can be equipped to permit hands-free operation of the vehicle.

Super Cruise works with Adaptive Cruise Control , which controls acceleration and braking while it is enabled and operating.

Super Cruise functions with services like OnStar®, precision LiDAR mapping, in-vehicle cameras, radar sensors, and GPS to help detect every curve, helping to make long drives and commutes comfortable and more convenient. The Super Cruise package on 2018 (produced on September 6th, 2017, and later), 2019*, and 2020 models includes 3 years of Onstar to support functionality, after which an OnStar plan must be purchased.

STEP 1

In order to use Super Cruise, first press the Adaptive Cruise Control button on the steering wheel to turn on Adaptive Cruise Control. The symbol will illuminate in WHITE on the instrument cluster. If Adaptive Cruise Control is already set, the symbol will be GREEN with a speed shown.

STEP 2

When Super Cruise detects you are on a compatible highway, paying sufficient attention, and all other driving conditions are met (lane markings visible, GPS available, no system faults, etc.), the Super Cruise symbol will illuminate in WHITE on the instrument cluster.

STEP 3

When it is safe to do so, press the Super Cruise button on the steering wheel to engage Super Cruise. When the symbol and steering wheel light bar illuminate in GREEN, you may remove your hands from the steering wheel. Do not remove your hands from the steering wheel unless the light bar is green, indicating Super Cruise is steering the vehicle. To disengage Super Cruise, press the Super Cruise button again or press the brake pedal.

WHAT DO I NEED TO USE SUPER CRUISE?

ONSTAR® 

With 2018 (produced on September 6th, 2017, and later), 2019*, and 2020 Super Cruise enabled CT6 vehicles, new owners receive the Super Cruise feature, which includes 3 years of OnStar to support functionality. To continue Super Cruise functionality after the 3-year Super Cruise package ends, an OnStar plan must be purchased.

DRIVING ASSISTANCE FEATURES

The following features in your vehicle must be activated:

Adaptive Cruise Control is: ON 
Forward Collision System set to: ALERT AND BRAKE 

The following feature in your vehicle must be deactivated:

DRIVING CONSIDERATIONS

Make sure that:

  • The vehicle is on a compatible highway
  • Lane markings are clearly visible (lane markings may be obscured, for example, by glare or poor weather conditions)
  • Camera or radar sensors are not covered, obstructed, or damaged
  • The Driver Attention Camera system detects that the driver appears attentive

OVER 200,000* MILES OF COMPATIBLE HIGHWAYS 

*Compatible Super Cruise highways for 2020 model Super Cruise enabled vehicles; dealer-installed software update required for 2018 model year and 2019 model year in order to be compatible with these highways


LEARNING THE ALERT SYSTEM

Drivers must pay attention to the road at all times. Our proprietary head tracking software helps make sure your eyes are on the road, and alerts you when you need to pay more attention or take back control.

FIRST ALERT

If the system detects that you may not be paying attention sufficiently to the road ahead, the steering wheel light bar flashes green to prompt you to return your attention to the road.

SECOND ALERT

If the steering wheel light bar flashes green for too long and the system determines continued lack of attention to the road ahead, the steering wheel light bar flashes red to notify you to look at the road and steer the vehicle manually. Also, either beeps will sound or the Safety Alert Seat will vibrate.

THIRD ALERT

If the steering wheel light bar flashes red for too long, a voice prompt will be heard. You should take over steering immediately; otherwise, the vehicle will slow in your lane of travel and eventually brake to a stop. Super Cruise and Adaptive Cruise Control will disengage.

MESSAGING

Super Cruise may not be available or may disengage when active based on several operating conditions. Use the Super Cruise button on the steering wheel to view Driver Information Center (DIC) messages about system operation.

If the Super Cruise symbol does not appear, press the Super Cruise button to display a DIC message about why the system is unavailable.

Immediately after Super Cruise disengagement, press the Super Cruise button (within 10 seconds) to  display a DIC message with the reason for disengagement.

WHEN NOT TO USE SUPER CRUISE

These are some of the situations when Super Cruise should not be activated.

  • When you’re not on a compatible highway separated from opposing traffic
  • During difficult or uncertain driving conditions
  • When lane markings are poor or visibility is limited
  • In a tunnel or construction zones
  • In slippery or other adverse conditions, including rain, sleet, fog, ice, or snow
  • On a road shoulder or service drive
  • When towing a trailer
  • Super Cruise is not designed to operate in a freeway or highway exit lane

FAQS

HOW DO I DISENGAGE SUPER CRUISE?

To disengage Super Cruise press the Super Cruise button again or press the brake pedal. If you grab the steering wheel AND press the brake pedal, Super Cruise and ACC will disengage.

WILL SUPER CRUISE CHANGE LANES FOR ME OR STEER TO AVOID SAFETY SITUATIONS, OBJECTS, OR ANY ROAD IMPEDIMENTS?

No. Super Cruise does not change lanes for you. The system is designed to maintain the current lane. You need to take control to change lanes, steer around a traffic situation or object, merge into traffic, exit the highway, make a turn, or stop for crossing traffic or a traffic light, stop sign or other traffic control device. Super Cruise does not steer to avoid construction zones.

HOW DO I MANUALLY STEER THE VEHICLE WHEN SUPER CRUISE IS ENGAGED?

Just begin to steer and the light bar should pulse blue. Once you are ready for Super Cruise to steer again, center the vehicle in the lane and wait for the steering wheel to turn green. You can remove your hands when the steering wheel is green.

DO I PAY ATTENTION IF SUPER CRUISE IS ENGAGED?

It is important to always remember that Super Cruise is a convenience system and cannot accurately detect all situations. Super Cruise also cannot determine whether the driver is awake, asleep, impaired or properly focused on safe driving. Complete attention is always required while driving, even when using Super Cruise. The driver should always be prepared to take over steering or apply the brakes at any time.

HOW DOES SUPER CRUISE KNOW HOW FAST TO GO?

Super Cruise will use the Adaptive Cruise Control set speed, however if you have not set the Adaptive Cruise Control speed when Super Cruise has activated, it will use your current speed as the Adaptive Cruise Control set speed. Super Cruise also will slow down around sharp curves.

HOW AND WHEN DOES THE MAP INFORMATION USED BY SUPER CRUISE UPDATE?

Super Cruise map information is automatically updated periodically. Automatic updates via OnStar will occur on a quarterly basis for the latest Super Cruise road availability information. In the event that a map update is not completed within seven months, Super Cruise will be disabled. In order to get Super Cruise working again, the customer must visit the dealer to have a new map update downloaded to the vehicle. The vehicle’s Wi-Fi hotspot must be set to “on” to receive automatic updates via OnStar and continue Super Cruise functionality.
