In an effort to expand access to advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) in more of its vehicles, GM announced the company is improving its technologies to provide customers with advanced features such as the Super Cruise, hands-free ADAS.
A key piece of Super Cruise’s accessibility is its road network, the compatible mapped highways where customers can engage the hands-free system. In August 2022, the company announced plans to double the Super Cruise road network to about 400,000 miles (644,000 kilometres) of roads in the U.S. and Canada on select vehicles.
The first vehicles to receive this expansion will be full-size SUVs built on Oct. 3, 2022 or later, arriving in customers’ hands starting in mid-November 2022. Additional miles of roads will be unlocked for customers who ordered the following vehicles with Super Cruise:
- 2023 Chevrolet Tahoe — High Country and Premier trims
- 2023 Chevrolet Suburban — High Country and Premier trims
- 2023 Cadillac Escalade, Escalade ESV, and Escalade-V
- 2023 GMC Yukon Denali Ultimate
For existing Super Cruise vehicles built on GM’s VIP electrical architecture, GM will expand the road network starting in the coming months via over-the-air (OTA) updates for eligible vehicles. Through the connectivity of its vehicles, OTA updates are automatically downloaded and installed with the simple push of a button. Super Cruise is coming to 22 vehicles by the end of 2023. Ultra Cruise will later be available on certain premium entries.
