The next feature of note that Cadillac offers is the lane change alert and blind zone alert. Using hidden radar sensors, these two alert systems monitor your blind spot to warn you about a vehicle that is approaching or already in the other lane. There is even a lane departure warning, which will provide a brief nudge to suggest you maintain course. Distractions happen, so it’s great to know that your vehicle is looking out for your safety at all times, even when you can’t pay attention!
Reversing out of a parking spot may not seem dangerous, but people are injured everyday while backing out of spots with challenging visibility. The rear cross traffic alert lets you know when there is cross traffic, so you have time to stop and avoid a potential incident. This system also has a rear pedestrian alert, so that if you are in a parking lot or area with high foot traffic, you can feel more assured about reversing.
Similarly, there is a foward collision alert, which shows on the dash and then lets out a series of high pitched warning beeps to bring attention to the situation in front of you. This warning uses the same monitoring sensors as the forward distance indicator, which tells you how many seconds you are behind a vehicle, so you know how much of a reaction period you may have.
Last, but most certainly not least, select Cadillac models can be equipped with the Super Cruise feature. Super Cruise equipped vehicles can handle the acceleration and braking for you, and even has automatic lane changing. Super Cruise is a true hands free driver assistance feature that takes control of the vehicle for you, and is compatible with over 200,000 miles of roads in the US and Canada. This innovative hands free driving technology is already available on several Cadillac models, and may soon become a standard feature on future releases.
