Cadillac will add enhanced in-vehicle connectivity with the addition of OnStar 4G LTE and the CUE Collection suite of applications.
The 2015 ATS Coupe will be among the first Cadillac models equipped with both advanced technologies when it goes on sale this summer.
OnStar 4G LTE is a faster and more reliable connection for in-vehicle applications compared to competitive 3G systems. A built-in connection allows passengers access online content and information through a Wi-Fi hotspot, which can accommodate up to seven devices.
The new, faster vehicle connection also powers CUE Collection, a new in-car app marketplace that will be standard on many 2015 Cadillac vehicles with CUE infotainment.
Accessible via an icon on the eight-inch LCD touch screen, the CUE system can organize, update or delete user-downloaded apps throughout the life of the vehicle. Expected initial apps include iHeartRadio, The Weather Channel, NPR and Slacker Radio.
Cadillac CUE is the centerpiece of the ATS CoupeÕs in-vehicle technologies and is available on base models and standard on Luxury, Performance and Premium ATS Coupes.
For 2015, CUE includes new enhanced content such as a Text-to-Voice feature for smartphone users with Bluetooth profile (M.A.P.), which reads incoming texts through the carÕs speakers. Users can also create and save their own preset responses when the vehicle is in Park.
The feature requires a compatible smartphone with Bluetooth profile and applicable text messaging features.
Also new for 2015 is the addition of Siri Eyes Free for iPhone iOS 6 and iOS 7 users.
The system allows users to simply connect their iPhone to CUE via Bluetooth, pair with the system and use the steering wheel voice activation button to begin and end sessions with Siri.
