2023 Chevrolet adds hands-free driving with Tahoe and Suburban Super Cruise

The 2023 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban full-size SUV are the latest to get General Motors’ Super Cruise hands-free driver-assist system.

Chevy confirmed the availability of the Super Cruise for the two SUVs in a press release on Friday. In addition to a handful of new color options and a new grille option, this is Tahoe and Suburban’s only update for the 2023 model year. The grill is a black grille with the letter “Chevrolet” on it, and is offered for LS, LT, RST and Premier models.

Already available in related Cadillac Escalade SUVs and Chevy Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500 pickup trucks, as well as a handful of other GM models, the Super Cruise can control specific stretch acceleration, braking and steering on pre-mapped highways. It uses a driver-monitoring system to protect against abuse and to keep an eye on drivers on the road.

GM said in March that for the 2023 model year there would be a total of 22 cars, including some form of Super Cruise. It also announced some updates at the time, including automatic lane change and trailing capabilities for pickup and SUV models.

Owners of certain 2021 models will get the applicable features through over-the-air (OTA) software updates, but owners of older vehicles that lack GM’s recent electrical architecture will miss out.

In 2023, GM will launch a more advanced system called Ultra Cruise.

Although the Super Cruise is limited to about 200,000 miles of highways in the United States and Canada that are adequately mapped, GM claims that the Ultra Cruise will be a “door-to-door” system that will operate on all paved public roads in the United States and Canada, and 95% of driving Allow for hands-free operation. It will still need supervision like the Super Cruise, though, to keep it in a driver-assist system instead of autonomous driving.

Meanwhile, Super Cruise will be available in Tahoe and the suburbs, just as Ford rolled out its Blue Cruise system in its own full-size SUVs and pickup trucks, including the F-150 and the Expedition. The 2022 Lincoln Navigator received the same system, but was rebranded as ActiveGlide.
