2019 Cadillac XT4 Automatic Braking

Cadillac XT4 Automatic Braking | Mike Raisor Cadillac

The 2019 Cadillac XT4 is one of the safest crossovers on the market, partly thanks to its advanced Automatic Braking technology. Cadillac XT4 Automatic Braking can help you avoid collisions and keep you and your family safer on the road.

The XT4 is available with both Forward and Reverse Automatic Braking, so whether you’re in bumper-to-bumper traffic or you’re backing out of a parking spot, the system is there to help you out.

Forward Automatic Braking uses radar sensors to keep track of the distance between you and the car ahead of you and will engage the brakes for you when you get too close. Reverse Automatic Braking will hit the brakes if you’re backing up and an object or another car is behind you.

Automatic Braking will also warn you in advance that you’re at risk of a collision with red warning lights on the head-up display, giving you plenty of time to avoid the accident yourself before it takes over. If you have Safety Alert Seat, you will also hear warning beeps.

The Automatic Braking system even comes with Intelligent Brake Assist, which when you engage the brakes can boost your braking power and further help avoid an accident, or at least seriously reduce the severity of it.

New Year’s Resolutions for Your Cadillac

Get better gas mileage this year in a 2019 Cadillac CT6

The New Year offers us a clean slate. You can find new adventures, change old habits, or simply improve on the skills you’re already developing. At Mike Raisor Cadillac, we strive to improve our driving habits using some of these tips.

Improve Fuel Efficiency

A common New Year’s resolution is to save money. However, setting concrete and measurable goals can help you reach them. You can count how much money you spend on gas in a given year, and try to spend less than the year before. Opting for an eco-friendly vehicle like the 2018 Cadillac CT6 Plug-In Hybrid will help you save money on gas and save the planet.

On an everyday basis, remove any heavy or unnecessary items from your vehicle to reduce the payload. Pay close attention to your driving habits, too. If you find yourself with a lead foot, you may be burning gas faster than necessary.

Keep Your Cadillac Clean

Staying organized is a great goal to have for the New Year, and it doesn’t have to stop with your home. Having a clean, organized car will keep your mind clear, too. Invest in organization tools, such as a car trash can and an emergency kit for your trunk. Every time you fill up your gas tank, sort through the car for any trash and throw it out. 

If you’re not ready to upgrade your vehicle just yet, make sure you bring it into Mike Raisor Cadillac for its regular maintenance. By keeping up with regular maintenance, you’ll reduce the risk of needing to spend money on costly repairs.

A Fun Holiday Road Trip in Indiana

Children playing and building a snowman

If you love road trips in your Cadillac, it’s the perfect time of year to get out and explore Indiana. This season, head out on a fun holiday road trip to Santa Claus, Indiana.

Holiday Shopping

Why not get your holiday shopping done somewhere festive? Santa Claus is home to holiday-themed gift shops, like Darlena’s Holiday andGift Shoppe, the Evergreen Boutique and Christmas Shop, the Santa Claus Christmas Store, and Santa’s Toys.

Santa Claus Museum

This historic museum contains everything Santa Claus-related you’d ever want to find! Open on weekends, this museum has special events through the holiday season and explores the town’s Christmas-themed history.

Frosty’s Fun Center

This is the perfect outing for families or friends. Frosty’s is an arcade and restaurant that has yummy food like top-tier ice cream as well as tons of arcade games, from racing to foosball.

Santa Claus Post Office

This is an infamous place to stop when visiting Santa Claus. It’s extra fun during the holiday season to get your mail stamped here – since the stamp is completely unique to Santa Claus – sporting holly berries and the jolly man himself.

Santa Claus Land of Lights

The Land of Lights is the perfect holiday activity. You can drive through in your Cadillac and see Christmas light displays that tell the stories of Santa, Rudolph, and all the reindeer.

From the Mike Raisor Cadillac family to yours, have a happy holiday season.
