What is the Cadillac Smart System?

The Cadillac Smart System is an integrated collection of driver assistance technologies and safety features. The goal of the system is to provide an extra layer of protection, reduce the likelihood of accidents, and make driving more enjoyable. The system includes a variety of features such as an HD Rear Vision Camera, Forward Collision Alert, Automatic Emergency Braking, and more. These features work together seamlessly to help drivers maintain control of their vehicles in various situations.

Key Features of the Cadillac Smart System

Emergency Braking

Front Pedestrian Braking

The Front Pedestrian Braking System can reduce or eliminate the severity of a front-end collision with a pedestrian. It can provide alerts and even emergency braking. This feature works at speeds between five and 50 MPH during the day, but visibility is limited during the night. 

Automatic Emergency Braking

One of the most significant Cadillac Smart System features is Automatic Emergency Braking. This uses camera technology to detect potential collisions with vehicles or pedestrians at speeds of five MPH and up. If a collision is imminent and the driver does not take corrective action in time, AEB automatically brakes to help avoid or lower the impact.


Forward Collision Alert

The Forward Collision Alert detects a potential frontal collision with the vehicle ahead. This feature can also prevent tailgating if you are unintentionally following the vehicle in front of you too closely.

Safety Alert Seat

The ultra-intelligent Safety Alert Seat allows you to choose between a vibration or beeping on left-, right-, or both-side driver’s seats. This assists in identifying what direction a potential crash is coming from, which can give you the opportunity to prevent or reduce the severity of a crash.

Rear Seat Reminder

The Rear Seat Reminder alerts you to check the rear seat of your Cadillac before exiting your vehicle under certain conditions. This feature is activated when the rear door opens or closes before or during the use of your vehicle. The Rear Seat Reminder does not detect pets or people. It is only triggered when a door has been left open.

Parking Assistance

Rear Park Assist

The Rear Park Assist feature can provide you with alerts when there are nearby detected objects behind your vehicle. This helps reduce collisions when reversing at low speeds.

HD Rear Vision Camera

The HD Rear Vision Camera shows high-resolution images of the objects directly behind your Cadillac. When in reverse, it also provides rear parking assistance, displaying an overlap of where your vehicle is headed. 


Teen Driver

To ensure your teen is practicing good driving habits, Teen Driver Mode provides you feedback on how your child is performing behind the wheel and also turns special safety features on when the designated Teen Driver key fob is in use.

Vehicle Diagnostics

To monitor the health of your Cadillac, the Vehicle Diagnostics feature will provide you with frequent updates on how your operating systems are performing.

Safety For All

No matter what stunning Cadillac model you choose, rest assured that your vehicle will be equipped with these features, regardless of trim level. Everyone deserves the peace of mind that these remarkable technologies provide.
