Cadillac’s long-promised expansion of its Super Cruise driving system has finally begun. The advanced hands-free driving technology was among the features announced during the unveiling of the new 2020 Cadillac CT4 compact sedan last week.

Super Cruise will be offered as an available option on the CT4, making it just the second Cadillac model to be equipped with the system.

Super Cruise draws in data from lidar mapping, GPS, radar sensors, and cameras to operate the vehicle. It also includes a driver attention system that tracks drivers’ eyes to make sure they’re paying attention and a dynamic lane offset feature that provides more comfortable spacing for passing bigger vehicles.

This technology can’t be used on every road, but GM is slowly expanding its reach. By the end of 2019, Super Cruise will be compatible with more than 200,000 miles of highway across the U.S. and Canada.

Currently, Super Cruise is only available as an option on the 2020 CT6 sedan, which faces an uncertain future beyond the current model year. GM has been vowing to expand it to other vehicles, at one point promising to expand it to the entire Cadillac lineup by 2020. But the process has been a slow one.

The new 2020 XT6 crossover is slated to get the technology soon, as is the soon-to-be-revealed 2020 CT5 sedan. However, Super Cruise won’t be available right away for either of these models.

Reports have indicated that the all-new 2021 Escalade will get Super Cruise as well. And the XT4 and XT5 could receive it by the 2022 model year.
