Expanding Access to Hands-Free Driving

GM is committed to expanding access to advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), bringing these technologies to more vehicles on more roads, while prioritizing safe deployment. We want to help our customers expand their driving experience with these systems, which is why we’re laser-focused on testing, validating and improving our ADAS technologies to provide our customers with advanced features and systems — like the industry’s first true hands-free advanced driver assistance system, Super Cruise.

A key piece of Super Cruise’saccessibility 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 more than 400,000 miles (644,000 kilometres) of roads in the U.S. and Canada on select vehicles2.

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. Hundreds of thousands of 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 at no additional charge. OTA software updates can provide more enhancements over time for eligible vehicles. Through the connectivity of our vehicles, OTA updates are automatically downloaded and installed with the simple push of a button.

Super Cruise is coming to 22 vehicles globally by the end of 2023. Ultra Cruise3 will later be available on certain premium entries. Together, these technologies will bring ADAS to more customers on more vehicles, in more regions at more price points.
