General Motors (GM) has significantly expanded its Super Cruise hands-free driving network, now offering around 750,000 miles of compatible roads across the United States and Canada. This development positions Super Cruise as the leader in North America’s hands-free driving technology, providing users with unparalleled access to nearly six times the mileage of its closest competitors. GM’s commitment to enhancing driver assistance systems through advanced technology such as LiDAR mapping is central to this expansion, aiming to build consumer trust and excitement for the future of transportation.

Spanning a distance equivalent to three lunar trips or nearly 130 cross-country journeys between New York City and San Francisco, the extended network underscores GM’s ambition. “GM is all-in on safely deploying Super Cruise,” says Anantha Kancherla, GM’s vice president of ADAS, stressing the importance of expanding the technology’s reach through high precision LiDAR mapping for a more reliable operating domain.

Introduced in 2017, Super Cruise was the first true hands-free Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) on the market. Its gradual expansion from 400,000 miles to include not just major highways but also minor ones reflects GM’s strategy to cater to a wider audience, including those in rural areas or enthusiasts of recreational activities like camping and boating. The inclusion of trailering capabilities in models such as the 2024 Chevrolet Traverse and 2024 GMC Acadia further broadens its appeal, ensuring a more relaxed driving experience for more customers.

Key highlights of Super Cruise include:

  • Coverage of about 750,000 miles across major and minor highways in the U.S. and Canada.
  • Over 80% of users report a more relaxing driving experience, making it a top reason for their vehicle choice.
  • Unique features such as Lane Change on Demand, Automatic Lane Change, and the industry-first hands-free trailering capability.
  • A track record of over 160 million miles driven without accidents.

The expansion, delivered through over-the-air updates at no extra charge, is set to continue through 2025, excluding certain models like the Cadillac CT6, Chevrolet Bolt EUV, and Cadillac XT6. Most vehicles equipped with Super Cruise are expected to receive these updates within a month of GM’s brand site map refreshes.

Super Cruise’s functionality is enhanced by OnStar connectivity, offering a glimpse into GM’s vision for an all-electric, inclusive future powered by the Ultium battery platform. For more details on Super Cruise and its deployment, visit GM’s official website.

General Motors remains committed to advancing vehicle safety, security, and the overall driving experience, as reflected in its ongoing efforts to lead in the hands-free driving technology space.
