Cadillac Super Cruise Advanced Cruise Control Pricing AnnouncedSeptember 19, 2020
The Cadillac Super Cruise Intelligent Cruise Control with semi-autonomous control features will be offered as a monthly subscription. The automaker has named prices for its advanced technology.
Owners of the American Cadillac CT6 sedan, which features Super Cruise advanced cruise control with semi-autonomous control capabilities, will soon have to pay a certain amount of money every month if they want the technology to keep working. It is reported that Cadillac customers will have to pay for the right to continue using the service up to $ 25 per month.
Customers who already subscribe to other paid features on Cadillac models can get Super Cruise for an additional $ 15 per month.
Advanced Cruise Control requires an internet connection to provide the technology to accurately update the maps and GPS coordinates that Super Cruise needs to enable hands-free driving.
However, owners who have not signed up for Super Cruise will not lose all system functionality. Lane centering, adaptive cruise control and other onboard features will continue to operate completely free of charge. Rumor has it that even more advanced Ultra Cruise technology is in development, heralded as the successor to the current Super Cruise. However, there are no statements from Cadillac regarding this.
Subscription pricing information comes as Super Cruise becomes an option for several more Cadillac vehicles for model year 2021: CT4, CT5 and Escalade. However, this technology will not remain exclusive to Cadillac for long. General Motors plans to extend the technology to its other brands, aiming to offer it on 22 models by 2023. The first non-Caddy car to receive this technology will be the new Chevy Bolt crossover.
