Cadillac’s Super Cruise Intelligent Cruise Control Will Be Paid

After the end of the 3-year trial period, during which the Super Cruise intelligent cruise control will be provided free of charge, you will need to subscribe to this service. There is no data yet on how much the subscription will cost.

“Subscription” is a word that you are likely to hear more often in the coming years as cars gradually turn into computers. Take BMW and its 5 Series sedan, for example, the most current version of the year, which allows its owners to unlock certain options for a fraction of the money. This effectively means that you pay for the equipment that is already installed – the same can be said for Cadillac vehicles and its Super Cruise driver assistance system.

As it turns out, Super Cruise is only free for a limited period of time, as owners of Cadillac models equipped with the system must pay for a subscription after the three-year trial period.

How much is it? The company does not want to say anything about this yet, but we should know the answer very soon – after all, the CT6 sedans, which received the Super Cruise system, went on sale in September 2017.

Although Super Cruise Intelligent Cruise Control is currently only available on Cadillac models, the technology will also appear on other vehicles from GM, which Cadillac is part of, in the coming years. In a recent interview with a representative of the automaker, we learned that after the end of the trial period, car owners will still be able to use on-board assistance systems such as lane centering and adaptive cruise control. In other words, they will only lose the function of hands-free driving.

Originally featured on the 2018 Cadillac CT6 sedan, the Super Cruise can be found on the CT4, CT5 and Escalade. Smart cruise control will be available in 22 GM models by 2023, and the upcoming Chevy Bolt crossover will be the first non-Cadillac to receive this technology next year.

It is already rumored that Super Cruise will be followed by a more sophisticated Ultra Cruise system with true hands-free driving capability on selected highways, city streets and elsewhere.

Not so long ago, we wrote that the 2021 Cadillac Escalade SUV is very popular. The American automaker has already collected more than 6,000 orders for the new generation of the Cadillac Escalade SUV. Sales of new items should begin this summer.
