General Motors introduces its new Super Cruise capabilities on six model 2022 vehicles. Super Cruise is the industry’s first true hands-free driver-assistance technology allowing drivers to travel hands-free on more than 200,000 miles of compatible roads across the U.S. and Canada.
The new capabilities include:
- Trailering — Customers will be able to trailer their boat, camper and more while driving hands-free.
- Automatic lane change — The technology can indicate when a lane change is optimal and initiate the maneuver, while following signaling protocols.
- Enhanced navigation display — Super Cruise compatible roads will be displayed in the in-vehicle navigation system for vehicles equipped with Google Maps app, showing drivers available routes for hands-free driving.
The new Super Cruise will be available on select model year 2022 vehicles including the Cadillac Escalade, Cadillac CT4 and CT5, Chevrolet Silverado, GMC Hummer EV Pickup and the GMC Sierra.
“The additional Super Cruise-enabled vehicles and new features are an important step toward our goal of enabling hands-free driving 95% of the time and getting people more comfortable with letting go of the wheel,” said Mario Maiorana, Super Cruise chief engineer.
By 2023, the new Super Cruise will be available on 22 vehicles.
GM launched Super Cruise in 2017 with the Cadillac brand and has added capabilities, expanding Super Cruise-enabled routes and availability on more products since then. To date, Super Cruise users have driving approximately 10 million miles across the U.S. and Canada.
In the South, General Motors makes the Cadillac XT5 and XT6, along with the GMC Acadia, at its Spring Hill, Tennessee, facility. GM builds the Cadillac Escalade and Escalade ESV, as well as the Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban and the GMC Yukon and Yukon XL at its plant in Arlington, Texas. In addition, GM makes all of its Corvettes in Bowling Green, Kentucky.
