Cadillac has transformed the CT6 into a giant camera-recording device, which can be used to store memorable drives or for security purposes.
Utilizing four of the seven exterior cameras available with the Surround Vision package that is standard on the Luxury, Premium Luxury and Platinum grades, the sedan can capture video in two modes.
The first one uses the front and rear cameras during vehicle operation, while the second one activates all four cameras when the security system is armed and starts recording automatically if the CT6 is being tampered.
Once captured, footage is automatically stored on a standard SD card in the boot and owners can choose whether to keep certain captures on the external memory or save and view them on their personal computers.
Aside from the grille, trunk lid and side mirror-mounted cameras that can be used to record surroundings or provide 360-degree views of the surrounding environment, the CT6 has three additional cameras, which are used by the Rear Camera Mirror, Lane Keep Assist and Night Vision system.
Cadillac has also detailed the rear-seat infotainment system, with two independent, articulating 10-inch high-def screens, which can retract into the front seat backs when not in use. These allow passengers to play Blu-ray DVDs, view media info, see what’s on the front CUE screen and adjust the rear massage function, which is available on the Platinum models only.
Enhancing the rear-seat infotainment system are the HDMI and USB ports, located on the front of the rear center seat or in the rear center armrest, which allow users to access Google Chromecast, Amazon Fire TV Stick or Apple TV in combination with the built-in 4G LTE Wi-Fi, offered as standard on all Cadillac models. The hotspot comes with a 3-month/3-gigabyte data trial.
Front-seat passengers can connect their mobile devices thanks to the Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility, available on the 10.2-inch CUE screen, which can also be used to play media from Blu-ray DVDs or USBs.
