GM expands Super Cruise network to 750,000 hands-free miles, largest in North America

GM is adding an additional group of highways to its hands-free technology Super Cruise, bringing the total to about 750,000 miles (1.2 million kilometers) of compatible roads across the US and Canada.

This new batch of compatible roads makes Super Cruise the largest truly hands-free operating domain in North America—nearly six times the coverage of other hands-free driver assistance technologies on the market today, according to GM.

GM is all-in on safely deploying Super Cruise as we make the technology available on more vehicles, more roads and for more people to enjoy. A key part of that is expanding the road network—in this case nearly doubling it again—with LiDAR mapped highways. High precision LiDAR mapping gives us an operating domain where we are confident in Super Cruise’s abilities.

—Anantha Kancherla, GM vice president of ADAS

Super Cruise launched in 2017; GM has incrementally expanded its Super Cruise network, most recently to 400,000 miles (640,000 kilometers), to include major Canadian, US and state highways. The latest expansion adds minor highways that typically connect smaller cities and townships.

More than 160 million miles (257 million kilometers) have been driven accident-free with Super Cruise. New or enhanced features and capabilities since Super Cruise’s launch include:

  • Lane Change on Demand
  • Automatic Lane Change
  • Enhanced Navigation
  • Industry-First, and only, Hands-Free Trailering
  • Collaborative Steering
  • Enhanced Driver Requested Offset
  • Improved Curve Handling

The new roads have already started to be added incrementally over-the-air, at no additional charge, and will continue to be added through 2025. Most Super Cruise-equipped vehicles will receive this expansion except for the Cadillac CT6, Chevrolet Bolt EUV and Cadillac XT6. The average eligible vehicle will update its map within about one month of the GM brand site maps showing updated roads.

Super Cruise is powered by OnStar connectivity.



Lethal crap, as it is Level 2, ie relies on the driver being ready at all times to grab the steering wheel, which has been proven in umpteen studies to be outside the range of human abilities.


A bit grumpy today are we?



I would be very cheerful if the people responsible for releasing these on the road took full personal and criminal liability.

Volvo tried to make an automated driving system, realised that proper level 4 was miles away, so that the car could not stop safely in any too difficult situation and that safe handover is an impossibility, and responsibly stopped the program.

Various sociopathic car bosses pushed on regardless.

Out of umpteen surveys on the impossibility of grabbing back control:



You are confusing Super Cruise with level 4 autonomous driving.

Super Cruise is enhanced cruise control. Cruise control has been available since the 1950s, and it has not led to massive carnage on the highways. Quite the opposite, the roads where you might use this kind of assistance have the best safety record.



No I am not.

My complaint is precisely that Super Cruise is not level 4, but relies on folk grabbing the wheel when the supposed automation screws up and tries to kill you,

This has conclusively and repeatedly been shown to be humanly impossible, and any system which relies on a fake safety measure should not be on the public highway, but confined to the company's test tracks.

If people what to play the fool with their own and their family's lives, fine, but I deeply resent attempts to make other people unwilling test guinea pigs,
