2016 Cadillac CT6 will receive a new rearview mirror with streaming video function

Article by Christian A., on December 19, 2014

The all-new 2016 Cadillac CT6 will be unveiled late next year and as expected, the vehicle will arrive with plenty of new technologies. Today, GM revealed one interesting feature found on the upcoming CT6: a high-resolution streaming mirror. According to the company, the new streaming video mirror will improve the field of vision by 300 percent, or four times greater than a standard rearview mirror.

Thanks to the 1280 by 240-pixel TFT LCD display with 171 pixels per inch as well as an HD camera which was designed specifically to enhance the rear view lane width, the new mirror will definitely improve safety.

Still, if you will not like the new fancy mirror, you will be able to flip the toggle on the underside of the mirror and revert it to a traditional electrochromatic rearview mirror.

“The closest comparison to this kind of rear vision would be driving a convertible with the top down,” said Travis Hester, Cadillac CT6 executive chief engineer. “In addition to the increased field of view, the technology eliminates any rear seat, rear pillar or passenger obstructions, allowing the driver an unimpeded view of the lanes behind and traditional blind-spots,” Hester said.
