Super Cruise and Ultra Cruise Driver Assistance Technology1

GM’s strong leadership position in vehicle electrification and connectivity platforms is matched by a similarly strong position in advanced driver assistance technologies, some of which enable hands-free driving under compatible driving conditions.

The technologies to support these systems provide the building blocks to leverage across other important applications, including the development of advanced vehicle safety features and fully autonomous technologies.

Our move toward such systems began with Super Cruise, the world’s first truly hands-free driver assistance technology, which was introduced in 2017 with the 2018 Cadillac CT6 and provided drivers with more than 140,000 miles of compatible roads in the United States and Canada. In 2019, the road network was expanded to 200,000 miles.

Super Cruise will be available on 22 vehicles globally by the end of 2023, including the 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EUV, the GMC HUMMER EV, Cadillac Escalade and many other models.

In 2021, we unveiled Ultra Cruise, which will take advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) technology to the next level. Ultra Cruise is designed to enable door-to-door, hands-free driving in 95% of driving situations, including city streets, subdivision streets and paved rural roads, in addition to highways. Eventually, the technology is expected to expand to every paved road in the United States and Canada. We expect that Ultra Cruise will be one of the premier and most capable ADAS features in the market.

Both Super Cruise and Ultra Cruise are expected to leverage the Ultifi software platform and Vehicle Intelligence Platform to enable continuous improvement as each system evolves over time, with more frequent updates adding features, services and functions over-the-air.

While Ultra Cruise is expected to be available on select vehicles, Super Cruise is planned to be offered more broadly across GM’s portfolio, expanding access to more customers.
