What is Cadillac Magnetic Ride Control?
There is nothing like the smooth ride of a Cadillac. It’s part of what makes them such sought-after vehicles. While we get to reap the benefits of the composed, fluid ride of Cadillac models, there is a lot of engineering and science going on behind the scenes in the Cadillac Magnetic Ride Control Suspension system. While that might sound a little complicated, we’ll take a few minutes to answer the question “What is Cadillac Magnetic Ride Control?” and explain how it makes your Cadillac driving experience so enjoyable.
Magnetic Ride Control suspension utilizes magnetic particles suspended in fluid. The particles react to a magnetic field that adjusts the suspension as the road constantly changes. Magnetic suspension acts much faster than traditional shock absorbers. In fact, Cadillac Magnetic Ride Control sensors reads the road as many as 1,000 times per second to ensure every pothole, stone, or bump in the road is absorbed in the suspension.
As it reads the driving surface, an electronic control unit (ECU) adjusts the suspension to dampen the force. While the suspension takes the brunt of the impact, you and your passengers feel only a small fraction of the jolt.
Cadillac Magnetic Ride Control is available on a number of Cadillac models, including the performance-focused Cadillac CTS-V, the 2015 Cadillac Escalade and the entry-level Cadillac ATS, among others.
While the technology has evolved, Magnetic Ride Control has been employed in Cadillac models since the 2002 model year in the Seville STS.
Although other factors play a role in the smooth ride of a Cadillac, Magnetic Ride Control has helped the brand build a reputation for excellence. Test drive a new Cadillac at Don Wheaton and experience how Cadillac Magnetic Ride Control helps create an unrivaled experience behind the wheel.
