What is Magnetic Ride Control™?

Cadillac tire

Magnetic Ride Control™ is an adaptive suspension technology that adjusts your shock absorbers up to 200 times per second, and it delivers superior ride quality and optimal damping no matter where your adventures take you. Magnetic Ride Control™ (MRC) is the fastest adaptive suspension system in the world, and since it doesn’t rely on mechanical components, it never wears out! The technology is offered as a standard or available feature in a wide variety of our new and pre-owned Cadillac vehicles, and once you’ve had a chance to experience magnetic suspension on the roads near South Jersey, NJ and Mount Laurel, NJ, you’ll never be able to go back.


What is Cadillac Magnetic Ride Control™? As noted above, this feature is a unique adaptive suspension system. When you drive, it reads the road, making automatic adjustments in order to ensure a smoother, more enjoyable touring experience. Let’s take a look at what the technology really does:

  • Cadillac Magnetic Ride Control™ uses independent electronic sensors in each wheel in order to check road conditions up to 1,000 times per second.
  • Every 5 milliseconds, Magnetic Ride Control™ can adjust your vehicle’s suspension in order to provide a smoother, more secure ride.
  • When you require a firmer ride, Magnetic Ride Control™ emits a magnetic field which lines up and collects these particles together. In scenarios where a looser suspension is desirable, the magnetic field lessens in intensity.
  • Most vehicles that include the feature allow you to adjust Magnetic Ride Control™ by switching between three settings. You can often switch between a softer Tour mode, a stiff Sport mode, and an even stiffer Track/Race mode. Contact our team to learn how to adjust Magnetic Ride Control™ in your vehicle.


Of course, if you really want to understand what your Cadillac Magnetic Ride Control™system is doing, you’ll need to understand how magnetic suspension works.

  • What is magnetic ride suspension? It’s simple: magnetic ride suspension is an improvement on classical suspension systems, Instead of relying on mechanical valves to make adjustments where needed, your Cadillac employs shock fluid infused with magnetic particles.
  • What distinguishes magnetic ride suspension from other adaptive suspension systems? Magnetic Ride Control™is the fastest adaptive suspension system available in any vehicle today, with a reaction time 10x faster than the blink of an eye. Mechanical valves simply can’t keep up with the simplicity and effectiveness of this magnetorheological system.
  • Other, derivative versions of magnetic ride suspension are based on the same principles as Magnetic Ride Control™, but Cadillac pioneered the feature. “MagneRide” initially debuted in 2002.
