[Video] Cadillac CT6 now offered with 360-degree, surround-view video recording system image

The US luxury automaker is aiming to set itself apart in the crowded upscale segment by bragging about the clever features of its all-new CT6 executive sedan.

Cadillac believes the CT6 will have an edge over the competition because it has the first surround-view video recording system – aside from a fairly common rear seat infotainment system. Starting with the less interesting option, the CT6 can be equipped with an optional rear seat infotainment system which comes with a couple of 10-inch displays that can be retracted and hidden into the front seat backs when not in use. These can be used to control a variety of functions, from adjusting the rear seat massage function to playing videos and viewing media information. Via the HDMI and USB ports devices such as Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV Stick, or Google Chromecast cand be used – alongside the streaming of content from Netflix, Hulu, or YouTube via the built-in 4G LTE connectivity.

The CT6 Platinum gets the rear seat infotainment system as standard, with the CT6 Luxury and CT6 Premium Luxury having is as part of the Rear Seat Package. The more interesting option though is the industry’s first surround-view video recording system. It will use four of the vehicles’ seven exterior cameras and has two running modes: front and rear cameras during driving or all four cameras when the security system is activated. The footage is being housed on an SD card situated in the trunk and Cadillac thinks it can deliver some memorable driving videos or even documentation prior and during an accident. The Surround Vision camera system is standard on the CT6 Luxury, Premium Luxury, and Platinum.
