General Motors is bringing new features to its Super Cruise system. Six of the company’s 2022 models will receive the new features, which include automatic lane-changes.
There’s three new features hitting these select 2022 models. The first is the ability for Super Cruise to handle trailering. Basically, Super Cruise is compatible with trailering a camper, boat and other items. This confirms recent speculation that Super Cruise would support trailering in the redesigned 2022 GMC Sierra.
A second new feature is automatic lane-change. Super Cruise today can change lanes on its own, but the driver must request it. For these 2022 models Super Cruise will decide when a lane-change is optimal and handle it on its own. Lastly, Super Cruise vehicles will have an enhanced navigation display that shows Super Cruise enabled roads.
GM says these three new features will be found in the Cadillac Escalade, Cadillac CT4, Cadillac CT5, Chevrolet Silverado, GMC HUMMER EV Pickup and GMC Sierra.
Super Cruise is a semi-autonomous cruise control system that works on about 200,000 miles of highway in the U.S. The system is limited to functioning on roads that GM has mapped with Lidar technology. GM says Super Cruise will expand to 22 models in 2023.
