In the 2022 model year, the GMC Sierra 1500 Denali will launch with the Super Cruise driver assistance system, which will offer the ability to perform hands-free driving while trailering. This intelligent tool promises to help our push towards safer and smarter driving.
Super Cruise is the industry’s first hands-free driving assistance program and is compatible with more than 200,000 miles of road within both the U.S. and Canada. The revolutionary program uses a driver attention system, LiDAR map data, and real-time cameras, sensors, and GPS to ensure that you are still paying attention to the road despite not using your hands.
A small camera mounted on top of the steering column shares data with a system of infrared lights to pinpoint where the driver is looking whenever the Super Cruise hands-free driver assistance technology is in use. If the system determines that the driver is not paying adequate attention, a steering wheel light bar will bring their focus back to the road.
Adaptive Cruise Control maintains a set distance between you and cars ahead. Lane Change on Demand performs conditional lane changes upon your request, and the LiDAR map data is precise enough to help keep you squarely in your lane.
Super Cruise rolling out to the GMC Sierra is a game changer for pickup truck drivers. Learn more about this semi-autonomous driving technology at West Point Buick GMC.
