More GM cars to get Super Cruise self-driving tech in 2022

General Motors will introduce its new Super Cruise capabilities on six 2022  vehicles next year.

GM said that Super Cruise is the industry’s first true hands-free driver-assistance technology, which allows drivers to travel hands-free on over 200,000 miles (320,000 kilometers) of compatible roads across the U.S. and Canada.

The capabilities include: trailering, automatic lane change, and enhanced navigation display. 

Trailering allows users to trailer their boat or camper while driving hands-free. Automatic lane change can indicate when a lane change is optimal and initiate the maneuver.

In 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. 

These enhancements will be available in the Cadillac Escalade, Cadillac CT4 and CT5, GMC Hummer EV (above) and Sierra (main photo), and Chevrolet Silverado (below).

“The additional Super Cruise-enabled vehicles and new features are an important step toward our goal of enabling hands-free driving 95 percent of the time and getting people more comfortable with letting go of the wheel,” Super Cruise Chief Engineer Mario Maiorana said. 

Chevrolet-SilveradoGM’s vehicle intelligence platform, which provides more bandwidth and data processing power, enabled these enhancements. 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 then trickle to 22 vehicles by 2023, including Cadillac's Lyriq. Additional vehicles that offer versions of Super Cruise include the 2022 Cadillac XT6 and the Chevrolet Bolt EUV.

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 (16 million km) have been driven by customers using Super Cruise across the US and Canada, GM said.
