The Cadillac User Experience (CUE) infotainment system is coming in line for a new generation, with the first model to have the new version being the 2017 CTS.
The latest and greatest mod of the CUE will also arrive inside the ATS and XTS starting next year, and has been reworked to allow for easier operation and quicker access. The company apparently asked the owners for their opinion across three continents and redesigned the menu accordingly. There are fewer steps now and the system also makes use of a new generation, faster processor. One of the main advancements is the addition of a bespoke Cadillac profile, which remembers an user’s preferences, including radio presets, on-screen button configurations, and navigation options, in the cloud. They can then be transferred to any Cadillac.
This would be particularly useful for someone using the new premium Book car sharing service, or in a two-driver household, the infotainment system would automatically switch between profiles based on the driver’s particular key. Owners can also access a cloud-connected navigation service that gets constant traffic updates. There’s also an app store available – called Connection – and there’s also the usual Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration. The 2018 ATS and XTS will get it next, with the rest of the family to introduce it alongside major refreshes later on.
