General Motors is significantly broadening its Super Cruise network to encompass 400,000 miles of roadways. Some picturesque routes like Route 66 and the Pacific Coast Highway will now be included as well. Rather than being currently integrated into any vehicles, this is about to change as the automaker’s full-size trucks will be the first to receive this latest hands-free driving technology.

If you’re in line to receive a high-spec 2023 Chevy Tahoe or Suburban, a 2023 GMC Yukon Denali Ultimate, or most versions of the 2023 Cadillac Escalade—including the exciting and energetic Escalade V—then upon taking ownership of your vehicle, you’ll have access to the latest update immediately. For those with slightly older trucks, the update will be delivered wirelessly in the “upcoming months.” No more inserting a DVD into the center console and hearing the car make strange noises—it’s all done through wireless technology.

Any other vehicle utilizing GM’s VIP electrical architecture is also slated to receive the update. This means that the update will eventually come to the Cadillac CT4, CT5, and Lyriq, as well as the Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra, among other future electric vehicles. Although there is no exact timeline for this rollout. It’s worth noting that the Cadillac Lyriq currently lacks the Super Cruise feature entirely.

The initial Super Cruise offering covered approximately 130,000 miles, primarily of interstate highways. The latest update doubles the extension to 200,000 miles. In comparison, Ford’s BlueCruise, a close competitor, currently covers only 130,000 miles of roadways. Notably, GM has had a significant advantage in terms of development time, having enhanced Super Cruise’s capabilities since 2017.

The next notable development for the hands-free system is Ultra Cruise, which according to GM, will be capable of managing nearly all driving scenarios from the start to the destination. Its debut will be on the $300,000 Cadillac Celestiq, with plans to extend the technology to other models in the future.
