Get all of the details about how the magnetic ride control works and how it enhances your drives throughout the Matthews area and beyond! 

How Does Magnetic Ride Control Work?

Magnetic Ride Control pairs electronic sensors with metallicized particles in the suspension system’s fluid to read, react, and respond to the road ahead. This technology assesses road conditions 1,000 times per second to make sure that any bad weather conditions or bumpy Charlotte streets are accounted for to deliver control and shock absorption when needed.


The Cadillac Magnetic Ride Control is the world’s fastest reacting suspension, and it reacts to bumps and speed changes 10 times faster than the blink of an eye. The results are a smoother ride and better handling, which lives up to Cadillac’s commitment to a better driving experience.
