GM’s SuperCruise Added to More Models, with Additional Features

General Motors added more features to its SuperCruise system for 2022 and intends to make it available on 22 models by 2023.

  • SuperCruise will be available on 22 vehicles starting for the 2023 model year

  • The system gained the ability to change lanes and to tow a trailer

  • A more advanced system called UltraCruise will be introduced in 2023

General Motors continues to expand its driver assistance systems by adding features to its SuperCruise system and making it available to more vehicles.

SuperCruise is a level 2 driver assistance system which allows the driver to let go of the steering wheel, but only on highways that have previously been mapped by the automaker, which is about 200,000 miles (321,800 kilometers) across the United States and Canada.

This system is currently offered on some Cadillac models and top of the line trims of the Chevrolet Silverado and the GMC Sierra. A de-contented version is also available on the Chevrolet Bolt EUV.

In order to make it more available to customers, the automaker will offer some from of SuperCruise on 22 models starting for the 2023 model year.

General Motors announced that improvements to the system’s capabilities will be made for 2022, with new features sold as an over-the-air update for some 2021 models, such as the Cadillac CT4, the CT5 and the Escalade.

The most important changes will be the addition of the lane-change feature and the trailer towing feature.

The first will make it possible for SuperCruise to autonomously perform lane changes in order to overtake slower vehicles without needing the driver to momentarily take control, as is currently required.

The second new feature will only be added to trucks and SUVs, such as the Escalade, the Sierra, the Silverado and the new GMC Hummer EV. This will make it possible to tow trailers while using SuperCruise, which wasn’t possible before.

In order to better compete with other driver assistance systems, especially Tesla’s Autopilot, GM announced a new version of the system, called UltraCruise, will be introduced in 2023. This system is said to be able to drive on 95% of American roads, meaning that trips drove entirely by the system will become possible.

This upcoming version will remain a level-2 system like the current SuperCruise since it will require drivers to pay attention to the road in order to prevent any mistakes on the system’s part.
