The Cadillac CT6 will become the first car to officially drive hands-free from one side of the country to the other.

Well, almost, Cadillac’s precision LiDAR map data and a driver attention system will allow the CT6 to navigate 130,000 miles of limited access American freeways. The company has sent a dozen 2018 pre-production CT6s equipped with Super Cruise on a coast-to-coast run that will take them across 16 states between Cadillac House in New York City to Los Angeles, California.

The program will make stops in major cities across the U.S. including: Cleveland, Ohio; Chicago, Illinois; Memphis, Tennessee; Dallas, Texas; Santa Fe, New Mexico; and Phoenix, Arizona.

“Cadillac is setting new industry standards with ground-breaking driver assistance technologies like Super Cruise, the world’s first true hands-free driving system for the freeway,” said Johan de Nysschen, Cadillac president. “We are excited to bring Super Cruise, a true testament to Cadillac’s innovative spirit and technical capability, on its first-ever hands-free drive on freeways from coast to coast.”

Super Cruise-equipped Cadillac CT6s will become available later this fall.
