HOW TO USE SUPER CRUISE

Super Cruise is available only on limited-access freeways 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 support services through OnStar®, along with precision LiDAR mapping, work with in-car cameras, radar sensors, and GPS to detect every curve and hill on the road ahead, helping to make long drives and commutes comfortable and more convenient. The Super Cruise package on 2018 and 2019 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 limited-access freeway, 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 and 2019 Super Cruise enabled CT6 vehicles, new owners receive the Super Cruise Package, 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:

Teen Driver is: OFF 

DRIVING CONSIDERATIONS

Make sure that:

  • The vehicle is on a limited-access freeway
  • 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 system detects that the driver appears attentive

OVER 130,000 MILES OF LIMITED ACCESS FREEWAYS

Some state and local laws may require hands to be kept on the steering wheel at all times. Only remove your hands from the steering wheel if Super Cruise is engaged, it is safe to do so, and it is permitted by state and local laws


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.

CLUSTER ALERT DISPLAY

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 limited-access freeway 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 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.

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.

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. Super Cruise also does not steer to avoid safety situations, objects, or road impediments. You must always manually steer under these situations. The driver needs to remain attentive and respond appropriately.

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.

WHY ISN’T MY SUPER CRUISE WORKING?

  • Verify that the vehicle is on a limited-access freeway, which generally only allows high-speed traffic; is separated from opposing traffic; and is only accessible by ramps.
  • Verify that Adaptive Cruise Control is on.
  • Verify that Lane markings are clearly visible. Do not use Super Cruise in poor weather conditions or when visibility is limited.
  • Verify that steering wheel is adjusted, and their face is visible.
  • Verify that Teen Driver is not active.
  • Verify that the Wi-Fi hotspot is turned on.
  • Verify that Forward Automatic Braking is set to “Alert and Brake”. Go to Settings > Vehicle > Collision/Detection Systems > Forward Collision System.
  • Verify that Camera or radar sensors are not obstructed or damaged.
  • If it appears that the system should be working and it is not, refer to dealer.

WHO CAN SERVICE MY SUPER CRUISE SYSTEM?

The Super Cruise system is a highly sophisticated system and should only be serviced by technicians with the proper training, tools and safety instructions, which are qualifications Cadillac dealers have. Without these qualifications the vehicle may become damaged.

I’M ON A LIMITED ACCESS-FREEWAY. ARE THERE ANY OTHER LIMITATIONS ON USING SUPER CRUISE?

Super Cruise is not available when Teen Driver is active.

Additionally, Super Cruise should never be used under difficult or uncertain driving conditions. That includes never using it in construction zones, when lane markings are poor, when there is limited visibility, in a tunnel, when towing a trailer, on a road shoulder or service drive, or in slippery or other adverse conditions, including rain, sleet, fog, ice or snow.

SUPER CRUISE AVAILABILITY

Super Cruise is available on 2018 (built after September 6th, 2017, and later) and 2019 CT6 vehicles. The Super Cruise Package on 2018 and 2019 models includes 3 years of OnStar to support functionality, after which an OnStar plan must be purchased.
