Starting in the first quarter of next year, GM will unveil its enhanced Super Cruise semi-autonomous driving assistant, available for six additional Cadillac models, including the Escalade, CT4, CT5, Silverado, Hummer EV and Sierra.
“We are delighted to expand Super Cruise to even more new models with additional capabilities to provide our customers with even more hands-free experience,” Super Cruise Chief Engineer Mario Majorana said in a prepared statement. Cruise vehicles and new features are an important step towards our goal of 95% hands-free driving and making it easier for people to let go of the wheel. ”
These vehicles will also have a number of additional features that the current generation of Super Cruise users have. These include a towing capability that allows drivers to engage the system even if they are towing a load, automatic lane change, and an improved navigation display that highlights Super Cruise compatible routes and roads en route to their destination. Now, if you already own a Super Cruise-enabled vehicle and want to upgrade to a more advanced system, you’re in luck if you bought your GM SUV in 2021, as this is the only model year to get an update. If you bought between 1997, when Super Cruise was first introduced, to 2020, sorry, no dice, you’ll have to change lanes like a schmuck.
