Don’t be afraid of autonomous cars. That’s what I told myself when GM’s press fleet sent us a new Cadillac CT6 for sale. It was GM’s first car to feature a new hands-free driving experience. We have the opportunity to review every make and model, and this system beats them all by an order of magnitude. That’s why we’re excited that Super Cruise is spreading to 22 cars by 2023.
In an interview with Automotive News, GM President Mark Reuss says the updated software and sensors will integrate automatic lane changes. Instead of relying solely on the car’s interpretation of traffic around it, Cadillac has spent over a decade mapping every U.S. highway and Interstate with highly accurate LIDAR (Laser Radar).
I wasn’t a believer until I put it to the test, and it is the best autonomous system on the market. Tell us which car you want it on in the comments below.
