Cadillac is planning on rolling out Super Cruise across its entire lineup starting with the year 2020, while also offering V2X communications in a high-volume crossover model by 2023, followed by another range-wide expansion.
"The expansion of Super Cruise and V2X communications technology demonstrates Cadillac's commitment to innovation, and to making customers' lives better", said Reuss.
GM is "committed to ushering in a new era of personal transportation, and technologies like these will enable it", Reuss said in a statement.

GM calls Super Cruise "the world's first true hands-free driver assistance feature for the freeway", which includes an important word: assistance. The system lets vehicles communicate with the roadside infrastructure and anyone else using the technology so that drivers can have advanced notice of traffic lights, work zones, and more. Super Cruise, much likes Tesla's Autopilot feature, is an autonomous driving aide which operates within the SAE-defined functionality of "Level 2" autonomy.
Where rival adaptive cruise control systems with auto-steer still demand drivers frequently return their hands to the steering wheel, though - Tesla's Autopilot included - Super Cruise does not. After 2020, GM said the system will be available on every single Cadillac before it begins to roll out to other GM brands. If the driver is distracted for too long, the system will stop the vehicle. To this end, Super Cruise only works if it sees you're paying attention to the road ahead. From 2020, the technology will be available across all Cadillac models.
A while back, Bozi Tatarevic looked into the components that get added when you spec Super Cruise to your CT6 and found that some of the sensors it uses are already shared across other GM vehicles. This feature, which Tesla CEO Elon Musk rejected for use in its vehicles due to concerns over inaccuracy, is meant to keep drivers aware and focused on the road by disengaging Super Cruise mode should the driver fail to respond to cues indicating the need to pay attention to the road. GM employed Ushr, Inc, a startup in GM Venture's portfolio, to map 160,000 miles of expressways in the USA and Canada.
