If equipped, Super Cruise™† is the first true hands-free driving technology for compatible roads. With an ever-growing network, you can travel on over 200,000 miles of compatible roads throughout the United States and Canada. Learn how Super Cruise works and how to use it responsibly.
How it Works
- The Super Cruise driver assistance technology uses precision Global Positioning System (GPS), advanced LiDAR map data and a network of cameras and sensors to maintain control of vehicle steering under certain conditions on compatible roads.
- Super Cruise is only available on compatible roads. Usually, these are roads separated from traffic going in the opposite direction.
- Super Cruise uses GPS with real-time corrections and map data to determine the vehicle’s location, while the Lane Sensing Camera detects the marked lanes on the road. This helps the vehicle steer and keep its lane position
- The system works with your vehicle’s Adaptive Cruise Control† system, which is designed to detect vehicles in your path, accelerate or brake your vehicle based on traffic conditions around you, and keep a selected following gap time from a vehicle ahead, even in stop-and-go traffic.
- When it is engaged, Super Cruise uses a Driver Attention System that monitors the system status and works to detect your head and eye positioning, reminding you to pay attention to the road and steer manually when needed.
Remember, when you’re using Super Cruise, you must pay attention while driving and should not use a hand-held device.
Super Cruise requires a working electrical system, cell reception and GPS signal. After the initial Super Cruise trial included with vehicle purchase ends, it also requires an eligible Connected Services† plan (Premium, Connected Vehicle or a standalone Super Cruise plan).
Using Super Cruise Responsibly
- Super Cruise is a driver assistance technology. Your complete attention is always required while driving. Do not use a mobile device while you are driving, even when Super Cruise is engaged
- You will need to take steering control in the following situations when using Super Cruise:
- When encountering unusual traffic situations or objects
- When merging into traffic
- When exiting the highway
- When making a turn or stop for crossing traffic or a traffic light, stop sign or other traffic control device
- Super Cruise does not steer to avoid construction zones. Always be ready to take action, and take over steering or apply the brakes
- Some state and local laws may not permit hands-free driving. In these locations, you may still use Super Cruise by lightly holding the steering wheel at all times. Always be aware of the rules of hands-free driving in your area
- Sometimes, like when you are approaching an intersection, Super Cruise uses a high-precision map to alert you to take control. Stay engaged and vigilant at all times while driving
- Some of the divided highways added will include limited intersections and traffic control devices. In the cases of railroad crossings, pedestrian crossings, stoplights or stop signs, Super Cruise will alert you to take back control of the vehicle. It’s important for you to stay focused and aware at all times while Super Cruise is in use

No. Super Cruise is a driver assistance technology. It cannot drive the vehicle or replace your responsibility to be attentive and ready to take control at any time. Even when Super Cruise is engaged, you must remain attentive and act as a supervisor for the system.
Yes, you need an eligible service plan to use Super Cruise after your initial trial. There are several plan options available to choose from, including the Premium Plan, Connected Vehicle plan and a standalone Super Cruise plan. Super Cruise uses the following cutting-edge technologies to enable smooth performance — and a data connection is at the heart of each one:
- Precise positioning: Provides highly accurate, precise positioning in real time to enhance Super Cruise control.
- Automatic map updates: These run in the background to ensure the vehicle recognizes newly compatible highways.
- Non-responsive driver support: Allows an OnStar® Emergency-Certified® Advisor† to check in on you in the event that you do not respond to the "pay attention" alerts.
