Sophistication is a given in the GMC Denali lineup, which is known for its unique, high-end designs, powerful engines, and advanced features. These models often showcase the latest in technology and performance, so it makes perfect sense to hear that the 2022 GMC Sierra Denali is on the list to be one of the very few, select vehicles to receive the Super Cruise hands-free driving technology.
As of now, there’s no technology that’s 100% autonomous, but the Super Cruise technology is about as close as it gets. Super Cruise works on over 200,000 miles of pre-mapped, divided highways in North America. When you’re behind the wheel of a 2022 Sierra Denali on one of these roads, and Super Cruise is turned on, you’ll be able to take your hands off of the steering wheel and your foot off of the acceleration.
Super Cruise works by adding on to driver-assist features that may already be familiar to you. It uses adaptive cruise control to manage the speed through braking and acceleration. A setup of cameras and sensors paired with GPS and LiDAR map data tell Super Cruise where it’s going.
Driver awareness is essential, even with this near-autonomous feature. Super Cruise maintains your attention on the road by using a camera mounted behind the wheel to ensure you’re watching the road. If not, Super Cruise will turn off.
