General Motors announced today it will introduce new Super Cruise1 capabilities on six model year 2022 vehicles in the first quarter of 2022. Super Cruise is the industry’s first true hands-free driver-assistance technology allowing drivers to travel hands-free on over 200,000 miles of compatible roads across the U.S. and Canada.
New capabilities include:
- Trailering – Customers will be able to trailer their boat, camper and more while driving hands-free.2
- Automatic lane change – The technology can indicate when a lane change is optimal and initiate the maneuver, while following signaling protocols.3
- Enhanced navigation display – Super Cruise compatible roads will be displayed in the in-vehicle navigation systems for vehicles equipped with the embedded Google Maps app and show routes available for hands-free driving, during route selection.
These enhancements will be available on select model year 2022 Super Cruise enabled vehicles, including Cadillac Escalade4, Cadillac CT45, Cadillac CT56, Chevrolet Silverado7, GMC HUMMER EV Pickup8 and GMC Sierra9.
“We’re excited to expand Super Cruise to even more new models with additional capabilities to provide our customers with even more opportunities to go hands-free,” said Mario Maiorana, Super Cruise chief engineer. “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.”
GM’s vehicle intelligence platform, which provides more bandwidth and data processing power, enabled these enhancements and underscores GM’s software expertise. The digital platform also enables GM to provide over-the-air updates to select model year 2021 vehicle owners, allowing them to take full advantage of Super Cruise’s latest enhancements.
Super Cruise will be available on 22 vehicles by 2023, including Cadillac LYRIQ10 and GMC HUMMER EV SUV11. Additional vehicles that offer versions of Super Cruise include the 2022 Cadillac XT612 and the 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EUV13.
GM launched Super Cruise in 2017 with the Cadillac brand and has added capabilities, expanded Super Cruise-enabled routes and availability on more products since then. To date, approximately 10 million miles have been driven by customers using Super Cruise across the U.S. and Canada.
