General Motors has announced that the first vehicles to use its extended, 400,000-mile Super Cruise road network are four full-size SUV models, which will begin arriving in customer hands in the middle of this month.
The four are the Chevrolet Tahoe, in High Country and Premier trim; Chevrolet Suburban, in High Country and Premier trims; Cadillac Escalade, Escalade ESV and Escalade-V; and the GMC Yukon Denali Ultimate. All are 2023 models.
The extension applies to vehicles built on or after October 3, 2022, and ordered with the Super Cruise option.
GM said it will expand the network for existing Super Cruise vehicles built on GM’s VIP electric architecture at no additional cost in the coming months, via OTA software updates. “OTA software updates may provide more improvements over time for eligible vehicles,” the company said.
Super Cruise will be available on 22 vehicles globally by the end of 2023, GM said.
“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,” the OEM said in a statement.
Super Cruise relies on its digitally mapped road network, where the Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) technology can be used in what GM calls “hands-free” mode. The company announced that it would double the size of the network to more than 400,000 by August 2022.
