- the 2022 gmc hummer ev will join the 2022 chevrolet bolt euv as the first non-cadillac gm products to offer super cruise.
- the gm system includes automated highway lane-change assist, which allows the driver to change lanes on many highways just by activating the turn signal.
- super cruise now functions while driving on 200,000 more miles of roads, a big jump over 130,000 miles when the system was unveiled in 2017.
general motors first introduced super cruise in 2017 on the cadillac ct6, and now, four years later, the first gmc will be getting super cruise: the 2022 gmc hummer ev. gm’s hands-free advanced driver-assist system with automated highway lane-change assist will come standard on the hummer ev. earlier this year, gm announced that the 2022 chevrolet bolt ev will also get the super cruise technology.
that lane-change feature, only recently unveiled, allows drivers to simply flick the turn signal for the vehicle to change lanes, if the technology determines there is an appropriate clearing in the traffic. in the last year or so, super cruise has been expanded to other vehicles in the cadillac lineup beyond the now out-of-production ct6. the cadillac ct4 and ct5 offer super cruise with the automated lane-change assist, along with the cadillac escalade and the xt6.
super cruise can now be operated on 200,000 more miles of roads; the number was only 130,000 miles when the system was unveiled in 2017. cadillac’s super cruise is just one of a few advanced driver-assist systems that can be operated hands-free; other hands-free systems include nissan’s propilot 2.0 and bmw’s extended traffic jam assistant, which can be operated hands-free up to around 40 mph.
