Cadillac Escalade: Continuous Damping Control (CDC) - Ride Control Systems - Driving and Operating - Cadillac Escalade Owner's ManualCadillac Escalade: Continuous Damping Control (CDC)

This vehicle may have a continuous damping control system called Autoride® or MagneRide™. With this feature, improved vehicle ride and handling is provided under a variety of passenger and loading conditions.

Autoride and MagneRide are fully automatic and use a computer controller to continuously monitor vehicle speed, wheel to body position, lift/dive and steering position of the vehicle. The controller then sends signals to each shock absorber to independently adjust the damping level to provide the optimum vehicle ride.

Autoride and MagneRide also interact with the tow/haul mode that, when activated, will provide additional control of the shock absorbers. This additional control results in better ride and handling characteristics when the vehicle is loaded or towing a trailer. See “Tow/ Haul Mode” under Trailer Towing   for more information.
