HOW IT WORKS

With an attentive driver, and under the proper conditions, Super Cruise can be equipped to permit hands-free operation of the vehicle.

Super Cruise works with Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), which controls acceleration and braking while it is enabled and operating.

Super Cruise support services through OnStar®, along with precision LiDAR mapping, work with in-car cameras, radar sensors, and GPS to detect every curve and hill on the road ahead, helping to make long drives and commutes safe, comfortable, and more convenient.

HOW TO USE SUPER CRUISE

Super Cruise is available only on limited-access freeways that are separated from opposing traffic.

Super Cruise Step 1

STEP 1

In order to use Super Cruise, first press the Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) button on the steering wheel to turn on Adaptive Cruise Control. The symbol will illuminate in WHITE on the instrument cluster. If Adaptive Cruise Control is already set, the symbol will be GREEN with a speed shown.

Super Cruise Step 2

STEP 2

When Super Cruise detects you are on a limited-access freeway, paying sufficient attention, and all other driving conditions are met (lane markings visible, GPS available, no system faults, etc.), the Super Cruise symbol will illuminate in WHITE on the instrument cluster. 

Super Cruise Step 3

STEP 3

When it is safe to do so, press the Super Cruise button on the steering wheel to engage Super Cruise. When the symbol and steering wheel light bar illuminate in GREEN, you may remove your hands from the steering wheel. Do not remove your hands from the steering wheel unless the light bar is green, indicating Super Cruise is steering the vehicle. To disengage Super Cruise, press the Super Cruise button again or press the brake pedal.

Forward Collision System set to: ALERT AND BRAKE 

The following feature in your vehicle must be deactivated: 

Teen Driver is: OFF 

SAFETY CONSIDERATIONS 

Make sure that: 

  • The vehicle is on a limited-access freeway 
  • Lane markings are clearly visible (lane markings may be obscured, for example, by glare or poor weather conditions) 
  • Camera or radar sensors are not covered, obstructed, or damaged 
  • The system detects that the driver appears attentive 

LEARNING THE ALERT SYSTEM

To ensure safety, drivers must pay attention to the road at all times. Our proprietary head tracking software helps make sure your eyes are on the road, and alerts you when you need to pay more attention or take back control.

FIRST ALERT

If the system detects that you may not be paying sufficiently close attention, the steering wheel light bar will flash green until it detects that your attention has returned to the road.

SECOND ALERT

If the steering wheel light bar flashes green for too long, Super Cruise will alert the driver to take control of steering immediately by flashing the light bar red. Also, either beeps will sound or the Safety Alert Seat will vibrate. See “Collision/Detection Systems” under Vehicle Personalization on page 251 of the Owner’s Manual. Take over steering, then Super Cruise will disengage. To re-engage Super Cruise, press the Super Cruise button on the steering wheel.

THIRD ALERT

If the steering wheel light bar flashes red for too long, a voice command will tell you to take control of the vehicle. Take control of the steering immediately; Adaptive Cruise Control and Super Cruise will disengage. A Driver Information Center (DIC) message will indicate that Super Cruise is locked out. Super Cruise cannot be re-engaged until the next ignition cycle. Continued failure to take over steering will cause the vehicle to slow in your lane of travel and eventually brake to a stop and an OnStar® advisor will be called. The brake lights and hazard warning flashers will come on.

WHEN NOT TO USE SUPER CRUISE

For your safety, Super Cruise should not be activated in the following situations:

  • When you’re not on a limited-access freeway 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 other adverse conditions, including rain, sleet, fog, ice, or snow
  • On a road shoulder or service drive

OVER 130,000 MILES OF LIMITED ACCESS FREEWAYS

Some state and local laws may require hands to be kept on the steering wheel at all times. Only remove your hands from the steering wheel if Super Cruise is engaged, it is safe to do so, and it is permitted by state and local laws.

FAQS

IS SUPER CRUISE DRIVING THE VEHICLE?

No. Super Cruise does not perform all aspects of driving nor do everything a driver can do. Super Cruise allows the driver to drive hands-free when conditions allow the feature to be available; but, the driver needs to pay close attention to the road and be ready to take the wheel at all times.

WILL SUPER CRUISE CHANGE LANES FOR ME OR STEER TO AVOID SAFETY SITUATIONS?

No. Super Cruise does not change lanes for you. Super Cruise also does not steer to avoid safety situations, objects, or road impediments. You must always manually steer under these situations. The driver needs to remain attentive and respond appropriately.

CAN YOU ONLY INITIATE SUPER CRUISE ON THE FREEWAY?

Correct. Super Cruise can only be used on limited-access freeways that are separated from opposing traffic and accessible by entrance and exit ramps only.

WHEN DO I NEED TO MANUALLY TAKE CONTROL OF THE VEHICLE?

You need to take control to change lanes, steer around a traffic situation or object, merge into traffic, or exit the freeway. Super Cruise does not detect construction zones. The system does not detect if you are drowsy or focused on safe driving. 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, use Super Cruise by lightly holding the steering wheel at all times. Always know the rules in your area.
