Tesla’s Autopilot, on the other hand, has tumbled off the podium into mediocrity.Expand Expanding Close

Cadillac’s Super Cruise ranked as best automated driving system by Consumer Reports, leading Tesla at #2
GM has been working on its own driver assist technology ‘Super Cruise’, which it presented as a competitor to Tesla’s Autopilot last year, for a while now. It was first supposed to launch in the 2016 version of the Cadillac CT6 two years ago, but after several delays, the company announced today that it will be available in the 2018 Cadillac CT6 later this year.
They release more information about the semi-autonomous driving system, which is almost presented as a level 3 autonomous driving system – something that is not available today in other vehicles (Tesla’s Autopilot is level 2).
