V2V Safety Standard on Cadillac CTS Sedans

Cadillac CTS Sedan V2V safetyCadillac doesn’t just reign superior when it comes to style. Safety matters, too! That’s why V2V safety technology is now standard on all Cadillac CTS sedans.

What does V2V stand for? It means “Vehicle-to-Vehicle” communications, and the addition of V2V to CTS sedans creates a communication network between vehicles. This new safety feature makes it easier to avoid accidents or traffic jams.

A Dedicated Short-Range Communications system and GPS work together to deliver messages between models. V2V alerts drivers of hazardous situations like slippery conditions, hard braking, and disabled vehicles.

But you, as the driver, don’t have to do anything. When a car approaches an intersection, V2V technology will scan for other vehicles, taking in information about their positions, speeds, and directions. With this information, the system suggests what issues there might be ahead of drivers.

“V2V essentially enables the car to sense around corners. Connecting vehicles through V2V holds tremendous potential, as this technology enables the car to acquire and analyze information outside the bounds of the driver’s field of vision,” said Richard Brekus, Cadillac global director of Product Strategy.

With V2V, every commute will be that much easier. If you’re curious about how it works, come down to Richard Karr Motors and check out the 2017 Cadillac CTS.

Cadillac CT6 Offers First-Ever Bose Panaray Sound System

Cadillac and Bose are teaming up to bring the first-ever Bose® Panaray® sound system to the first-ever Cadillac CT6. Joining forces for the first time in 1980, this isn’t the first rodeo for the two companies; and the result is an astounding sound system you won’t believe is meant for your car.

The Panaray is the first in Bose’s revolutionary new line of “Advanced Technology Series” sound systems. A whopping 34 speakers are littered throughout the cabin of the CT6 sedan to provide the optimum listening experience with clarity, precision, and high quality deep bass.

“We asked Bose to create something truly special for this new vehicle” an unbounded sound system, providing an audio experience unmatched in any other luxury automobile,” said Travis Hest, executive chief engineer for the CT6. “Cadillac CT6 customers will be elated by what they hear and feel when they switch on the Bose Panaray system.”

We at Richard Karr Motors have been trying to wait patiently for the arrival of Cadillac’s all-new sedan. However, when we learn of exclusive features like this Bose sound system, it makes the early 2016 release date seem forever away. Oh well; we all have to wait together, so at least we’re in good company.
