GMC Sierra Denali Getting Super Cruise in 2022

GMC Sierra Denali goes hands-free in 2022

  • Hands-free driving will work while towing

  • Second GMC model to get the feature


The next vehicle to get Super Cruise driver assistance from General Motors is going to be the 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 Denali, the automaker has just announced. This is just the second confirmation of the driver assistance feature that debuted on the Cadillac CT6 in 2017 to be used outside of that brand.

Super Cruise allows for hand-off driving, the only current system that can offer that feature, on more than 320,000 km of roads in Canada and the US. In the 2022 Sierra, the feature will add support for drivers with a trailer, letting drivers go hands-free while towing.

It’s a long way out, though, for the Super Cruise-equipped Sierra. While Super Cruise has come to the Cadillac CT4 and CT5 and the Escalade, it is set to come to the GMC Hummer EV late next year. On the Sierra Denali, GMC says “late model year 2022,” which could mean anytime as late as the fall of 2022.

What’s also shown off in the photo GMC supplied is what looks to be a new interior for the Sierra 1500. In addition to the new gauge cluster, the instrument surround is different from current trucks. You can see on the steering wheel the LED Super Cruise indicator (here in green to show the feature is active) and the eye-sensor to make sure you’re still watching the road.

To the right side of the wheel is what looks to be new vents that appear more like that in the Yukon Denali SUV. Just beside the steering wheel is what looks to be a volume control for the infotainment system where the Yukon would place the gear-shift buttons, so don’t expect an exact trim. Still, the cabin is one of the places the Sierra falls behind its competition so any Yukon-like upgrade would seriously improve this truck.
