Cadillac has announced that it plans to expand the rollout of the "world's first true hands-free driver assistance feature for the freeway."

The feature is called Super Cruise and will be available on all Cadillac models beginning in 2020.

Super Cruise is also expected to be expanded to other General Motors brands. V2X communications (vehicle-to-vehicle communication) is also expected to be available in the years to come. 

"The expansion of Super Cruise and V2X communications technology demonstrates Cadillac's commitment to innovation, and to making customers' lives better," Reuss said. "GM is just as committed to ushering in a new era of personal transportation, and technologies like these will enable it."

With Super Cruise, customers can drive hands-free on more than 130,000 miles of "limited access" freeways in the U.S. and Canada. The system is designed to help keep drivers engaged and aware of when they need to be paying more attention to the road. Super Cruise is not a substitute for paying attention however, and drivers still must not use handheld devices while driving.

"Cadillac is proud to be the leader for the company's innovation," said Steve Carlisle, Cadillac president. "Groundbreaking technologies like these continue to provide unparalleled comfort and convenience for our customers."
