Super Cruise



Learn how to go hands-free.
Your commute just got more comfortable. Super Cruise driver assistance technology offers a true hands-free driving experience for divided and compatible highways. It's easy to use, and this guide is designed to help you get the most out of your hands-free driving experience.

Always pay attention while driving and when using Super Cruise. Do not use a hand-held device. Requires properly equipped vehicle, active Super Cruise subscription, working electrical system, cell reception, and GPS signal.

Driven by technology.

Using precise, real-time positioning, cameras, sensors, and LiDAR map data, available Super Cruise can help detect each curve in the road, making your long drives more comfortable. Super Cruise is available as an optional feature on select GM vehicle models purchased in Canada and includes three years of Super Cruise connectivity to support this functionality, after which a paid Connected Services plan is required.

Here's what you'll need.

Connected Services

Connected Services

Available Super Cruise functionality is enabled by a data connection for real-time, precise positioning and periodic Super Cruise map updates. In order to operate Super Cruise, you must have an active and eligible Chevrolet or GMC Connected Services plan. Super Cruise connected vehicles are also connected to OnStarยฎ Emergency Services, so Emergency-Certified OnStar Advisors can assist drivers if required.

Enable and Disable Features

Enable and Disable Features

In order to operate the available Super Cruise driver assistance technology, you must have Adaptive Cruise Control active with Forward Collision System set to Alert and Brake. Teen Driver technology (if equipped) must be turned off.

Driving Considerations

Driving Considerations

Make sure you're on a divided and compatible highway with clearly visible lane markings, your camera and radar sensors are not covered, and ensure your eyes are on the road so the Driver Attention System detects that you're paying attention to the road ahead. Please note that weather conditions such as heavy rain or snow can impact Super Cruise Performance.

How to go hands-free.

Activate Adaptive Cruise Control

Activate Adaptive Cruise Control

Step 1
First, activate Adaptive Cruise Control using the steering wheel button. If Adaptive Cruise Control is already set, the symbol on the instrument cluster will be green with a speed shown.

Get ready.

Get ready.

Step 2
When Super Cruise detects you are on a divided and compatible highway, paying sufficient attention, and all other driving conditions are met (visible lane markings, available GPS, no system faults, etc.), a white Super Cruise symbol will display on the instrument cluster.

Engage Super Cruise.

Engage Super Cruise.

Step 3
When it is safe to do so, press the Super Cruise button on the steering wheel to engage the feature. When the steering wheel light bar turns green, you may remove your hands from the steering wheel. Do not remove your hands unless the lights bar is green, which indicates that the Super Cruise is steering the vehicle. To disengage Super Cruise, press the Super Cruise button again or press the brake pedal.

Learning the alert system.
Drivers must pay attention to the road at all times while using Super Cruise. Our proprietary head-tracking software helps ensure your eyes are on the road and alerts you when you need to pay more attention.
First Alert

First Alert

If the system detects that you may not be paying attention to the road ahead, the steering-wheel light bar flashes green to prompt you to return your attention to the road

Second Alert

Second Alert

If the steering-wheel light bar flashes green for too long and the system determines continued lack of attention to the road ahead, the steering-wheel light bar flashes red to notify you to look at the road and steer the vehicle manually. Also, beeps will sound.

Third Alert

Third Alert

If the steering-wheel light bar flashes red for too long, a voice prompt will be heard. You should take over steering immediately; otherwise, the vehicle will slow in your lane of travel and eventually brake to a stop, as well as prompt an Emergency-Certified OnStar Advisor to call into the vehicle to check on you. Super Cruise and Adaptive Cruise Control will disengage.

Messaging

Messaging

Super Cruise may not be available or may disengage when active based on several operating conditions. Use the Super Cruise button on the steering wheel to view Driver Information Centre (DIC) messages about system operation. If the Super Cruise symbol does not appear, press the Super Cruise button to display a DIC message about why the system is unavailable. Immediately after Super Cruise disengagement, press the Super Cruise button (within 10 seconds) to display a DIC message with the reason for disengagement.

When not to use Super Cruise.

These are some of the situations when Super Cruise should not be activated:
  • When you're not on a divided and compatible highway separated from opposing traffic
  • During difficult or uncertain driving conditions
  • When lane markings are poor or visibility is limited
  • In a tunnel or construction zones
  • In slippery or in other adverse conditions, including rain, sleet, fog, ice, or snow
  • On a road shoulder or service drive
  • When towing a trailer
  • On a freeway or highway exit lane
