Cadillac has some of the most sophisticated diver safety features on the market. Many of these are mounted on the windshield.  Choosing the correct windshield can be difficult if you are not familiar with all of the vehicle’s features. There are four different windshield that are available for the 2013-2016 SRX.

  1. Standard Windshield – Windshield with no attachments.
  2. Windshield with Rain Sensor – A optical sensor attached to the windshield.  It uses infrared light beamed at a 45-degree angle into the windshield which reflects back — if the glass is wet, less light returns to the sensor, and the windshield wipers wipers turn on.
  3. Windshield with Lane Departure Warning System, Forward Collision Alert and Rain Sensor 
  4. Windshield with Intelligent Collision Avoidance and Rain Sensor

No. 3 and No.4 is where it gets tricky. First let me explain the two sensors.

Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS)-  A windshield mounted camera detects the lanes on the road, if the driver changes lanes without signaling it will alert the driver.

Forward Collision Alert- A windshield mounted camera detects the distance of the vehicle in front and will alert the driver is a crash is immanent.

The Intelligent Collision Avoidance uses these sensors along with other features and will actually apply the brakes to slow or stop the vehicle, instead of just an alert.

The two photos below show the difference in the two windshields. Notice the “triangle cut-out” toward the top center of the glass. The windshield without the Intelligent Collision Avoidance (ICA) looks like a true triangle.  The triangle with the ICA is an obtuse triangle.
