Starting in the first quarter of next year, GM will make its advanced semi-autonomous driving assistant Super Cruise available on six more Cadillac models, including the Escalade, CT4, CT5, Silverado, Hummer EV and Sierra.
“We are excited to expand the Super Cruise to even more new models with additional features to provide our customers with even more hands-free capabilities,” Mario Maiorana, Super Cruise’s chief engineer, said in a prepared statement. “Additional Super Cruise-enabled Vehicles and new features are an important step towards our goal of enabling hand-free hands 95 percent of the time and allowing people to release the steering wheel more comfortably.”
These vehicles will also enjoy a number of additional features made by the current generation of Super Cruise users. They include a trailer option, which allows drivers to turn on the system even if they pull a load behind them, an automatic lane change and an improved navigation screen, which will highlight Super Cruise-compatible routes and roads en route to your destination. If you already own a vehicle with a Super Cruise and want to upgrade to a more advanced system, you’re in luck if you assume you bought your GM SUV in 2021, as it’s the only model of the year to receive an upgrade. If you bought between 1997, when the Super Cruise was first introduced, and 2020, sorry, but no dice, you’ll have to change your own strip like a schuck.
