New for 2018:Cadillac

Christian Wardlaw | Dec 11, 2017

Cadillac continues to roll out its next-generation version of its CUE infotainment system, introduces a new hands-free driving technology called Super Cruise for the top trim in the CT6 lineup, and gives the aging yet popular XTS a freshening designed to give the car a few more years of life. Otherwise, changes to the 2018 Cadillac lineup are minor.
