GM is rolling out three major upgrades including automatic lane changes and its hands-free driver assistance system Super Cruise will be made available in six vehicles, including tapping support and the all-new GMC Hummer EV pickup truck of 2022.

While GM has steadily improved the Super Cruise since its launch in 2017, over the years it has been limited to its luxury Cadillac brand. Improvements and additional vehicles mark the automaker’s desire – and perhaps readiness – to sell its Chevrolet- and GMC-branded pickup truck owners on its technology.

When GM launched the Super Cruise, it was only available in one Cadillac model – the full-size CT6 sedan – and was banned on the split highway. That began to change in 2019 when GM announced plans for an expansion where Super Cruise would be available. The system can now be activated on more than 200,000 miles of roads in the United States.

And GM also plans to expand further. By 2023, GM’s goal is to bring the Super Engine to 22 vehicles, including the Cadillac Lyric and the GMC Hummer SUV.

The company said on Friday that it operates on Super Cruise without a driver prompt automatic lane changes. The Advanced Super Cruise will feature the 2022 Cadillac Escalade, Cadillac CT4, Cadillac CT5, Chevrolet Silverado, GMC Hummer EV Pickup and GMC Sierra. GM has also developed and will launch a new feature that will allow drivers to join a hands-free assistance system while trailing their boats or campers. This trailing feature will only be available in 2022 model year vehicles that have towing capability. Finally, GM has upgraded the navigation in the car to show drivers where Super Cruise can be used.

The Super Cruise Leader uses a combination of map data, high-precision GPS, cameras and radar sensors, as well as a driver focus system that monitors the person behind the wheel to make sure they are focusing. Unlike Tesla’s op topilot driver assistance system, Super Cruise users don’t have to keep their hands on the wheel. However, their eyes must be straight ahead.

The driver still has to keep his eye on the road for automatic lane change facility in Super Cruise. When the system is engaged, the driver does not need to turn on the turn signal to indicate a desire to change lanes. Instead, the system, if engaged, will change lanes after warning the driver. The system will move the vehicle to another lane for slower passing.

The automatic lane change requested by the driver will be the default when the vehicle is tying up a boat, camper or trailer.

All of these upgrades are due to GM’s new digital vehicle platform, VIP, or Vehicle Intelligent Platform, which provides more electrical bandwidth and data processing power, enabling engineers to add to the capabilities of the Super Cruise. Vehicles equipped with this VIP electrical architecture can add features to the super-cruise features through over-the-air software updates. That means some 2021 models, most notably the Cadillac Escalade, will get these new upgrades.

There are many vehicles, namely the 2022 Chevrolet Bolt UV, which has a different version of the Super Cruise because it is not VIP equipped. As a result, the Bolt EUV will not receive these upgrades.
