Cadillac XTS – Magnetic Ride Control

C adillac, as part of the launch of the XTS, has produced some videos that describe features of their new large car – which introduces many new technologies from GM.

In this video, Cadillac gives a brief overview of their magnetic ride technology. Magnetic Ride uses a special magnetically reactive fluid in the shocks/struts that gets thicker when a magnetic field is applied. Combined with computers that watch the condition of the road and the intentions of the driver, the system can adjust the stiffness at each corner 1000 times per second. We have seen this technology in the V-series models as well as in the top suspension of the ATS.
