14 Cadillac High Tech Safety Innovations Of 2020

Cadillac vehicles have taken the automobile world by storm. The engineers at Cadillac have worked together to create some of the best high tech safety and comfort innovations for their 2020 line up. Let’s get into the details.

  1. The Super Cruise™ System

This is one of the industry’s safest and most innovative hands-free driver-assistance features available today. This hands-free driver module is for use on limited-access freeways.

The system uses precision LiDAR mapping coupled with a state of the art driver attention system. These features are paired to a network of radar sensors and cameras.

Once you activate Cadillac’s flagship Super Cruise mode you will actually be able to take your hands off the steering wheel while the vehicle handles everything on its own. This way, you will be able to really enjoy your cruise in style. Initially available with the CT6 last year, the technology is now being offered in the Cadillac’s XT 6. Eventually, the company plans on offering it with every vehicle in its lineup.

  • Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) System

The newest Cadillacs have an excellent emergency braking system that can help alert the driver to any potential collisions. It can also limit the severity of the accident by automatically applying emergency breaks, even if you have not been able to do so yourself. Apart from that, the AEB system can also enhance the power of the brakes under the driver’s control. You can find many AEB equipped Cadillacs if you are in the market for Huntsville used cars.

  • High Definition Rear Camera Mirror

The rearview camera available with many 220 Cadillac models allows for 300 per cent more vision in comparison to the standard rearview mirrors available with other brands.  You will have the option to use a more traditional inside rearview mirror, or you can use this camera display in your mirror to retain a wide and unobstructed view of the traffic behind you.

  • Safety Alert Seating System

Many of the new Cadillacs have a driver’s seat that is equipped with subtitle vibrations on both the left and right sides of the seat. If there is any danger from a specific direction, the seat will vibrate and warn you of a potential collision.

  • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) For Highway Drives

The ACC system is capable of automatically adjusting your vehicle’s speed in order to maintain the pre-selected following gap between your new 2020 Cadillac and the vehicles ahead of you. This way, you will be able to take preventive measures well in advance, in case other vehicles come too close to your Caddy.

  • Head-Up Display (HUD)

This is a full-colour and fully reconfigurable display that projects important information on the windshield and makes sure that you are fully aware of the environment outside the cabin of your automobile.

Hybrid Cars: A Brief History – How They Work – Advantages

The Toyota Prius Hybrid, introduced in Japan in 1997, was the first mass-produced hybrid car.  Honda’s Insight Hybrid came out in the United States and Japan in 1999.

A hybrid car is an automobile that combines an internal combustion engine and electric propulsion drive train.  Most hybrids employ a conventional 4-cylinder gasoline engine and electric generator.  This combination is a more efficient system in delivering power to the drive wheels.  The electric motor is superior at supplying torque,  that is, getting the car moving quickly.  The gasoline engine is best suited for maintaining the car’s momentum at higher speeds.  The combination of the two propulsion systems yields better fuel economy and cleaner emissions.  This “hybrid” system “switches” the two motors at optimum speeds to maximize fuel efficiency and performance.

Initially, hybrid cars were not that popular because they were priced considerably higher than conventional gasoline-powered cars and production capability was limited.  Toyota and Honda had very few factories dedicated to producing hybrids.

I sold the Toyota Prius between 2000 and 2007 and the typical buyer was a high-income customer who liked the idea of using less gas and expelling lower emissions.  The Prius was usually three to six thousand dollars more than comparably equipped, 4- cylinder gasoline Toyota Corollas.

But, the hybrid cars gained popularity as gasoline prices went up and down.  The hybrid cars became more comfortable to drive and came better equipped;  The idea of much better fuel mileage “caught on” in the eyes of the consumer.  The hybrid batteries are more compact in size and more powerful and, prices have moderated in that they are more “inline”  with non-hybrid cars.

Today, every manufacturer, including Toyota, Honda, Ford, GM, Fiat/Chrysler, Hyundai, Kia, Mazda and all the luxury brands offer sophisticated hybrid models.

An example of the efficiency of a hybrid automobile vs. a conventional 4-cylinder gasoline equipped car:

  • A 2018 Toyota Corolla LE
    • City:  28 mpg
    • Hwy: 36 mpg
    • Overall 32 mpg
  • A 2018 Toyota Prius (base model)
    • City: 54 mpg
    • Hwy: 50 mpg
    • Overall: 52 mpg
  • Hybrid cars are here to stay because:

(A)  They get far superior gas mileage.

(B) They give off far fewer emissions.

(C) Their batteries are smaller in size and more powerful.

(D) They are very well equipped.

(E) They have state-of-the-art interiors and beautiful exterior styling.

(F) Their pricing is more “in-line” with conventional powered cars.

Do yourself a favor;  Before you buy your next car, check out the new 2018/2019 hybrid models.  I think you will be quite happy in what you’ll find.

Happy Motoring!

Save Money When You Buy Your Next Car: Part Two

As a follow up to Part One, I want to make it clear how knowing what you want saves you money when purchasing your next car.

There are basically three reasons why people go to an automobile showroom.  One, they are there solely to look at different models on display.  Two, they are there to gather information, i.e., fact finding, and, three, they have already finished steps one and two and are ready to buy the car, either today or soon.  The trained sales person qualifies potential customers to find out why they are in the showroom, and, since it is this third group of people who are the ones most likely to buy a car, the sales person’s focus is directed exclusively to them.  Customers who are “just looking around” or strictly there to gather information are least likely to get a competitive price from the salesperson because they are not willing, at this time, to commit themselves to purchasing a car today.  The customer who is “looking around”, getting information and asking for prices and not committed to buy, will not get a competitive price: the sales person will quote (and I know this from personal experience as a retired car salesman) an approximate price.  For example, the 2018 Toyota Camry LE is “around” $25,000 plus taxes and fees.  If a customer was not ready to purchase the car that day, some sales people are instructed, by their managers, to not quote prices at all unless the customer disclosed they were ready to buy the car today.  This was the conclusion of Part One:  No customer commitment to purchase equals no competitive price.

Commitment means that the customer tells the salesperson, up front, that they are interested in purchasing a car today; or, that they have already received quotes from other dealers and are ready to buy, now, if your price is competitive.  Note: it is the salesperson’s job to find out what the customer’s time frame is for buying a car, if the customer has not disclosed this.

This brings us to another way in which the customer can save money: get at least three quotes, in writing, from the salesperson at three different dealerships, make sure that each quote has the make, model, trim level desired equipment and/or packages and MSRP of the exact car you are interested in.  By doing this, you are guaranteeing that you get each dealer’s best price on the car that you want.

I also purchased many cars before I became an auto salesperson and for years I didn’t know that this was the best course of action in securing a “good” price, and, as a result, I paid too much for the car.  Being in the car business for many years, I learned that the best way to get the best price from each dealer was to get at least three quotes on the exact car you are interested in.  Many customers purchase from a dealer with the lowest price.  But others, like myself, will compare quotes and purchase the car at the dealer whose price is competitive and whose salesperson I preferred because the salesperson treated me with respect.
