Re: Xts 2014 cue
Congratulations on your new XTS purchase! I did some research and this is the only information I have regarding the CUE in the 2014 model:
“Cadillac CUE is standard on all models. Its heart is the standard eight-inch (203 mm) screen in the center stack, the faceplate below the screen and the steering wheel controls. Features include capacitive-touch control with proximity sensing, haptic feedback, gesture recognition and natural voice recognition.
A 12.3-inch (312 mm) reconfigurable instrument cluster is standard on Premium and Platinum Collections. It features vibrant graphic displays showcased among four driver-selectable themes, ranging from minimal to extensive information. And while it is the prominent element in the XTS’s technological character, CUE is part of a more comprehensive and layered approach to the car’s design, capabilities and performance”
I do not see any information that there is a difference in CUE from the 2013 version. I will be on the lookout for any news relevant to this for you though. Thank you very much for your time.
Yes there are changes. To name a few, you have a "Voice" icon on the touchscreen. This allows you to utilize voice control of your smartphone without using the phone. Also, some changes to the DIC: A "Maintenance Due In:" option, the option to have the digital speedometer in the center screen (5.7inch DIC only). There is also a frameless mirror and a thicker steering wheel. The temperature can now also be controlled in the climate app as well as the original faceplate controls. I am sure there is more that I cannot think of. Congratulations on your new purchase. Hopefully you ordered the VSport. Because it rocks. Also, if you bought any collection (Luxury and above) which I see you had a Premium collection, as long as it is FWD then you would have Automatic Parking Assist. The car will locate a space and parallel park itself on either side of the road. If you haven't seen it done yet, you (the driver) still control the gas/brake, but the car tells you when to stop, change from Drive to Reverse, and will steer itself. Its neat if you havent experienced it yet.
If it is not a standard XTS or AWD, then you should go test out the Automatic Parking Assist I mentioned earlier. To activate, you must be going less than 18 mph, have a space large enough to parallel park in, and just push the button on the bottom right underneath "Glove Box." It should be the button you don't recognize from previous MY's.
