Starting on September 25th through October 5th, 12 Super Cruise-equipped Cadillac CT6 vehicles took to the road on the first official hands-free drive across the United States. We took reporters along to chronicle the journey and experience the new Super Cruise feature for themselves.
Super Cruise is the first true hands-free driver assistance feature for use on over 130,000 miles of limited access, divided freeways. Precision LiDAR mapping works with in-car cameras, radar sensors, and GPS to detect the road ahead, allowing the driver to travel without touching the wheel or pedals.
The Super Cruise-equipped Cadillac CT6 vehicles crossed through 16 states, plus the District of Columbia, to complete the coast-to-coast trip, making stops to see sights along the way.
Cadillac was granted a one-time permit by the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles to demonstrate Super Cruise on a pre-defined route on New York roadways for September 25th, 2017.
