      Cadillac's Super Cruise will soon be moving off of the highways and into cities and towns..

      https://www.caranddriver.com/news/a3...-city-streets/

      "Ultra Cruise's domain would essentially be all driving, all the time," Parks said. "Ultra Cruise would be all the Super Cruise, plus neighborhoods, cities, subdivisions." Parks didn't announce a timeline for when this new version of Super Cruise would be added to new vehicles.

      There is the potential that Ultra Cruise could be the automaker's play for self-driving in passenger cars. "We're not saying Ultra Cruise will be fully autonomous 100 percent of the time, although that could be one of the endgames for Ultra Cruise," Parks said. That would place the upcoming driver-assist system in competition with Tesla's Full Self-Driving feature that will eventually add autonomous driving to Tesla vehicles.

      Interesting. I wonder if this will remain a Cadillac exclusive, or if high-trim Chevy and GMC trucks will also get it soon. It could set them apart from Ford and Ram's offerings.

      I’m interested to hear more about what this can actually do. My guess is hands and foot free driving on crowded city streets at <25 mph.

      Since GM had planned on debuting the GMC Hummer and Cadillac Lyric EVs, at major car shows by now, we probably would have already had those answers.
      I have to imagine that GM's highest profile EVs will have this technology first.
