DETROIT — General Motors' latest version of its Super Cruise driver-assist technology, set to debut on the GMC Hummer EV pickup, will allow customers to perform more functions hands-free: towing heavy loads and changing lanes.
Automatic lane change will be available on the Hummer pickup when it launches this year. Hummer buyers can update Super Cruise in 2022 to add the trailering technology. Both features will roll out on the 2022 GMC Sierra, Chevrolet Silverado and Cadillac Escalade, CT4 and CT5 next year.
Super Cruise is key to GM's zero-crashes, zero-emissions and zero-congestion mission. The technology allows customers to drive hands-free on compatible roads but requires drivers to stay engaged throughout the ride.
