The first car to drive itself — albeit with significant restrictions — has arrived. And it’s not from a tech company like Alphabet’s Waymo or an upstart like Tesla. It’s a Cadillac.
Meet the 2018 Cadillac CT6, the first car with Super Cruise. Unlike all other advanced driver-assistance technologies, Super Cruise is designed to actually drive the car by itself on certain highways.
You do not have to keep your hands on the wheel (or keep touching the wheel) as you have to do with systems from Tesla and Mercedes-Benz, for example. And a test drive proved that Super Cruise is steadier and more accurate than any so-called autopilot system yet introduced, making it a long-distance driver’s dream and a commuter’s fantasy.
While GM plans to roll the option out in other models, so far, Super Cruise is available only in Cadillac’s luxury sedan. The feature is standard on the Platinum version of the CT6 (MSRP: $85,290) and is a $5,000 option on the Premium Luxury model, which starts at $66,290.
