Cadillac to renew nearly entire portfolio by 2020
All of them will get Super Cruise.
Cadillac has announced it will add its Super Cruise semi-autonomous technology to every member of its line-up by 2020.
Speaking during General Motors' Capital Markets Day presentation, company president Mark Reuss explained the next-generation Super Cruise technology will find its way across the entire Cadillac portfolio by the end of next year. Retrofitting semi-autonomous technology to an existing car is difficult, but Motor Authority reports Cadillac will be able to reach its goal because it will renew nearly every car it makes as it rolls out Super Cruise.
The brand's model offensive started in 2018 with the release of the XT4. It will continue at the 2019 Detroit auto show when Cadillac introduces the XT6, a three-row crossover positioned between the XT5 and the Escalade. Speaking of, the Escalade is preparing to enter its next generation; we expect to see it in the coming months.
Cadillac isn't ditching sedans. The CT5 will replace both the ATS and the CTS when it lands, and the company will release an entry-level sedan named CT4. Electric models are part of its model offensive, too, including one that will inaugurate General Motors' next electric car platform.
One thing is certain: Cadillac has its work cut out for the next couple of years. We expect to learn more about the company's model offensive during the 2019 Detroit auto show.
