Three little letters have been swirling around the automotive industry for the past few weeks following the release of the 2013 Cadillac XTS and the anticipated release of the ATS. Those letters are C, U, and E.
CUE (pronounced “Q”) – otherwise known as the Cadillac User Experience – is the “comprehensive in-vehicle experience that merges intuitive design with auto industry-first controls and commands for information and entertainment data,” according to Cadillac. But what does that really mean? How does CUE really improve the driving experience for Cadillac owners? We’re glad you asked!
For starters, CUE allows you to stay connected to the world no matter where you go. Up until now, anytime you hop in your car to go for a drive, you are basically unconnected from the world (besides your phone). But with CUE, you have a world of content at your fingertips- literally. Using the 8-inch LCD touch screen, you can bring up weather reports, 3D GPS navigation, even your own personal Pandora Stations.
But CUE is useful for much more than just staying connected – It’s about convenience and ease of use. Have you ever used an iPad? Well CUE is so similar to the iPad, Cadillac is actually giving one away free to everyone that purchases an XTS. Cadillac hopes that by doing this, people will get the hang of CUE quicker.
Adding to the convenience is the natural voice recognition software that comes with CUE. No longer do you need to talk like a robot just so you can listen to a song or dial a friend.
If you’re interested in learning more about CUE, or perhaps you’d even like to try it out first-hand, swing by your local Naples DeVoe Cadillac dealership. We would love to give you a tour of the all new XTS and CUE.
