Cadillac Models Add New MagneRide 4.0 Technology

2021 Cadillac Escalade | Beloit, WI

Get ready for an even smoother ride around Beloit, Wisconsin, thanks to the new MagneRide 4.0, now offered for Cadillac models. This next-generation Magnetic Ride Control system takes the superior performance quality of Cadillac vehicles and makes it even better. Debuting on the Cadillac CT4-V, CT5-V, Escalade, and CT5 Sport, MagneRide 4.0 is a fantastic suspension technology.

Innovative Technology

MagneRide 4.0 is the fourth generation of the Cadillac Magnetic Ride Control technology and improves responsiveness in varying road conditions. This version introduces major updates to the system, like new wheel accelerometers and updated magnetic flux control. It also has an inertial measurement unit, which is sensitive to the motion of the vehicle and allows it to adapt more quickly to bumps in the road. 

A Smoother Ride

Within the active damping system, magnetorheological fluid and electromagnets work together to control the damping rate. The wheel accelerometers can read the road as much as 1,000 times each second. These readings then cause the magnetic charge to change, which in turn adjusts the damping rates of the vehicle’s shocks. The result of the system is a more relaxing, smoother ride, even on rough roads.

MagneRide 4.0 is just one of several innovations included in new Cadillac models. Discover more about these models when you give us a call at Bud Weiser Motors in Beloit, Wisconsin.

Cadillac Super Cruise™ Technology.

Cadillac consistently pioneers cutting-edge technology for its vehicles. One of its latest and greatest innovations is Super Cruise™, a revolutionary system that does the driving for you. Here’s a look into how Super Cruise™ technology works.

Super Cruise™ merges the functions of different devices to create an integrated hands-free driving experience. It relies on radar sensors, cameras and GPS to digitally map and predict the road ahead. Then, when you activate Super Cruise™, it utilizes Adaptive Cruise Control to control your braking and acceleration, allowing the vehicle to keep moving forward without colliding with other vehicles.

Your Cadillac will even stay centered in its lane and maintain a safe distance from other vehicles, all without your hands needing to guide the wheel. Accordingly, the technology makes for more relaxing and convenient rides.

Cadillac customers have been using the autonomous system for almost two years now, covering more than 3 million miles of compatible highway. Super Cruise™ is such a breakthrough in self-driving technology that Autoblog named it the 2019 Technology of the Year and Popular Science proclaimed it the 2018 Best of What’s New winner.

If you want to take the hassle out of highway driving and make your commutes easier, you can drive the 2019 or 2020 Cadillac CT6 and opt for Super Cruise™.  Learn more about the vehicles and their technology at Bud Weiser Motors.
