Super Cruise Is Coming To The 2022 GMC Sierra 1500

January 14th, 2021 by

Available on over 200,000 miles of roads and highways Super Cruise has proven the feature as not only useful, but as a way to help engage drivers with their vehicles as they find ways to make driving easier.

Available on select Cadillac models, the Super Cruise feature will become available on the 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 in a year from now. This will be the first application of this driver assistance technology in a GMC vehicle and on a pickup truck.

What is Super Cruise? It is a semi-autonomous driving feature that enables the 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 to drive itself for a brief moment on certain roads. This is made possible by precision LiDAR map data, high precision GPS, a state-of-the-art driver attention system, and a network of camera and radar sensors.

This feature also adds other pieces of driver assistance components to make it work. Automatic lane-centering is key to the Super Cruise, which enables a perfect line down the road as the sensors pick up any deviations from it.

Super Cruise requires an active OnStar service plan with emergency services to function. That way, it can use communication signals to assist in ensuring the feature works properly based on GPS positioning. If something does go wrong, OnStar is contacted to intervene and assist the vehicle and its occupants.

This driver attention system helps to keep drivers engaged and detects when drivers need to pay more attention to the road. Even while using Super Cruise, drivers must always pay attention and not use a handheld device.
