Super Cruise Gets Better

The Detroit Free Press reports that new features are coming to GM Super Cruise. Specifically, Super Cruise will now perform lane changes “on demand”, and will negotiate highway interchanges.

More significantly, Super Cruise will roll out to the Cadillac Escalade and the Cadillac CT4 and CT5 sedans.

Super Cruise is often touted as the closest competitor to Tesla Autopilot, and maybe even a superior alternative.

Maddeningly, however, for years Super Cruise has only been available on top-of-the-line Cadillac CT6 models. As a result, it’s really hard to find a car that has it. I’ve never been in a car equipped with Super Cruise.

The Free Press also quotes GM that Super Cruise has been activated for 5.5 million miles since it launched in 2017. That means Waymo has driven more Level 4 miles since 2017 than Super Cruise has driven in something approximating Level 3. Tesla Autopilot, which has logged billions of miles, has orders of magnitude more data.

Nonetheless, Super Cruise has the potential to roll out to the larger GM model base and begin recording data at a level far beyond anything we’ve seen so far — from any manufacturer.
