GM’s Full-Size SUVs Get 400,000-Mile Extended Super Cruise, Update to Existing Models Coming Soon
Following an announcement in August, GM released additional details on expanding Super Cruise support to more than 400,000 miles (643,738 km) of routes in the United States and Canada.
While Super Cruise was already compatible with more than 200,000 miles (321,869 km) of roads in North America, the first vehicles to take advantage of the significantly improved service area are full-size SUVs built on October 3 of this year or after.
Among them are the High Country and Premier versions of the 2023 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban, the 2023 GMC Yukon Denali Ultimate and the 2023 Cadillac Escalade, Escalade ESV and Climbing-V. These vehicles will begin delivering to customers later this month.
People who already own Super Cruise-equipped vehicles, with the VIP Electric Architecture, can expect a live update in the coming months. Once downloaded and installed, they can enjoy hands-free driving for an additional 200,000 miles (321,869 km) of road.
This will be a welcome update as the number of compatible routes has increased significantly in the eastern half of the United States. Changes in the west are less dramatic, but a number of states have seen significant improvements.
Canada hasn’t been forgotten either as the provinces of Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec and Saskatchewan are all getting a new Super Cruise compatible route. In particular, it looks like drivers can now travel from Vancouver to Quebec almost entirely hands-free.
