Specifically, semi-auto pilot (dubbed ‘super cruise’) will be provided on certain 2017 model year cars for GM’s first rate Cadillac brand. Meanwhile, the same Cadillac model – the 2017 Cadillac CTS – will also include technology that allows vehicle-to-vehicle communication which reacts to others at intersections and in other situations
