The upcoming ATS and XTS feature the new Cadillac User Experience (CUE) configurable dash and touch-sensitive center console. The images Cadillac has shown so far may be a mix of what is in the show cars and what will make it into production, but let’s look at some of the variety, shall we?
This view shows info on the configurable dash, including a photo caller id displayed on the dash to the left, MPH and compass top center, a 3D graphical representation of a gas pump with integrated meter right, gear selection bottom right, 4-wheel tire pressure status bottom center, and odometer bottom left.
From the published info:
Cadillac CUE integrates interior design with industry-first control and command technologies. It will debut in 2012 in the ATS and XTS luxury sedans and SRX luxury crossover. It features a 12.3-inch reconfigurable gauge cluster (on select models) and offers four selectable displays: Simple (shown), Enhanced, Balanced and Performance, which can mix between vehicle data, entertainment, navigation and 3D vehicle image.
This interior shot shows the dash configured for a ‘conventional’ gauge set albeit with tire pressure displayed in the center of the tachometer display.
This view shows a half-dial to the left with needle & conventional tach, flat-bottomed dial center with MPH, and a stacked gauges to the right.
Based on these I am hoping that Cadillac is bringing a user-selectable suite of gauge packages for the configurable display to market!
