You can always bet on GM-Trucks.com to have the real inside information. As we reported earlier this month, an updated version of Super Cruise that’s ready to work while trailering is on the way and has been confirmed by General Motors.
Today, GMC and General Motors announced that the 2022 GMC Sierra will be equipped with Super Cruise. Even better, the system will be updated to work while trailering.
What is Super Cruise?
General Motor’s Super Cruise is a new technology that allows drivers to take their hands off the wheel in certain road conditions and on certain compatible roads. Today, it’s available on the 2021 Cadillac Escalade, the Chevy Bolt EUV, and a few other GM products.
We’ve used the system (see video below) and it’s a fascinating look into the future of self-driving vehicles. While admittedly, it’s hard to feel comfortable with your hands off the wheel, the system instills confidence within a few dozen miles of letting it take over.

Along with the announcement, GMC released this video of the system working.
More Vehicles Getting Super Cruise Soon
General Motors also announced six other vehicles would get Super Cruise in the next model year. These include the Chevy Silverado, the GMC HUMMER EV Pickup, and a wide range of Cadillac models.
Our Experience With Super Cruise
We Wanted To Try It – GMC Told Us To Buzz Off
Earlier this week GMC invited a select group of journalists to preview the updated Super Cruise system on the yet-to-be-released 2022 GMC Sierra. GM-Trucks.com, as the leading website dedicated to Chevy/GMC Trucks, asked to be invited to this event. However, representatives from GMC all but told us we were not important enough. What does this say about GM and its dedication to current customers and enthusiasts?
