DESIGNED TO TAKE YOUR HANDS AND BREATH AWAY

Available Super Cruise™ is the first true hands-free driver-assistance technology for compatible highways. Super Cruise utilizes advanced technologies to provide the ease and convenience of hands-free driving, even while changing lanes, thanks to Lane Change on Demand, offered on select 2021-2023 Super Cruise-equipped vehicles.

 

Select 2021 and 2022 Cadillac vehicles will also be eligible for available Super Cruise Upgrades which owners can purchase to add additional functionality like Automatic Lane Change and Trailering  to their existing Super Cruise capable vehicle (if eligible). With Automatic Lane Change enabled, Super Cruise can indicate when a lane change is optimal and initiate the manoeuvre, while following signalling protocols. Trailering allows the driver the opportunity to pull a trailer, camper and more while driving hands-free. Your commute will never be the same. 

Always pay attention while driving and when using Super Cruise. Do not use a hand-held device. Requires active Super Cruise plan or trial. Terms apply. Lane Change on Demand and Automatic Lane Change not available while trailering.

HOW TO USE SUPER CRUISE

If equipped, Super Cruise is an available driver assistance technology that allows hands-free driving on compatible highways. 

HOW IT WORKS

With an attentive driver, and under the proper conditions, Super Cruise-equipped vehicles can 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 Cadillac Connected Services and uses real-time precise positioning, cameras, sensors and LiDAR map data to help detect every curve, helping to make long drives and commutes comfortable and more convenient.

*Compatible Highway with Limited Access or Limited Intersections and Traffic Control Devices.

Cadillac Super Cruise Step One: Press the Adaptive Cruise Control button.

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 Adaptive Cruise Control 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.

Cadillac Super Cruise Step One: Super Cruise symbol will illuminate in white on the instrument cluster.

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.

Cadillac Super Cruise Step One: Press the Super Cruise button on the steering wheel to engage Super Cruise.

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.

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 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 is paying attention to the road ahead

LEARNING THE ALERT SYSTEM

Drivers must pay attention to the road at all times. Our proprietary head pose and eye gaze 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 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, 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., as well as prompt an Emergency-Certified OnStar Advisor to call into the vehicle to check on you. 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 Centre (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 divided or 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 unless equipped with Super Cruise trailering capability
  • On a freeway or highway exit lane

NOTE: Consult your Owner’s Manual for more important information about Super Cruise.

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 STEER TO AVOID SAFETY SITUATIONS, OBJECTS OR ANY ROAD IMPEDIMENTS?

If equipped with Lane Change on Demand, you are able to prompt the system to change lanes for you. However, Super Cruise will not steer to avoid safety situations. You need to take control to 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, centre 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. Complete attention and adherence to all applicable laws is always required.

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 updated periodically. Automatic updates via your Cadillac Connected Services plan will occur 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, you must either drive the vehicle long enough for the automatic updates via your Cadillac Connected Services plan to take effect or visit the dealer to have a new map update downloaded to the vehicle for a fee. Wi-Fi may be required for map updates. See your owner's manual for details.
