As part of an announcement that the 2022 GMC Sierra would receive GM’s Super Cruise “hands-free driving-assistance” system (GM’s phrasing, not ours), GM confirmed that the system will work while towing and trailering.
The Sierra won’t be the only GM product getting Super Cruise. The system is already available on some Cadillacs, the Chevrolet Bolt EUV, and a smattering of other GM products, and it’s now set to expand to the Sierra, the Chevrolet Silverado, the upcoming GMC Hummer EV pickup, and more Cadillac models.
Your author has not yet had a chance to use the system, so I can’t tell you if it’s good or not based on first-hand experience, but by all accounts, it does seem to work fairly well. As a reminder, Super Cruise only works on certain roads and in certain conditions.
Even without experience with the system, we’d imagine that it could make trailering easier. We’re also wondering how, if it all, it integrates with GM’s other tow/trailer assist features that we’ve tested, such as the camera system.
This news could be cause for long-haul, um, haulers to rejoice.
