GM’s hands-free, semi-autonomous Super Cruise driving assistant debuted on the now-defunct Cadillac CT6 luxury sedan and has slowly trickled to certain models in the GM portfolio, including the Cadillac Escalade, Chevy Silverado, Chevy Bolt EUV and GMC Sierra. Many of GM’s next-generation EVs will also come equipped with Super Cruise – including the recently unveiled 2024 Chevy Equinox EV compact crossover.
Super Cruise will be offered as an optional extra on the 2024 Chevy Equinox EV in the 2LT trim level and above, meaning the only trim that cannot be equipped with the hands-free driver aid is the entry-level 1LT. To recap, the 2024 Chevy Equinox will be offered in the 1LT, 2LT and 3LT trim levels, as well as the sport-themed 2RS and 3RS trim levels.
The Super Cruise system requires an active plan or trial, which starts at $25 per month on a standalone basis. The Super Cruise subscription can also be added to certain OnStar plans for an additional $15 per month. Super Cruise, which is classified as an SAE Level 2 semi-autonomous system, enables hands-free driving on over 200,000 miles of compatible highways in the U.S. and Canada. The feature can also initiate auto-lane changes and is compatible with a trailer on certain GM vehicles.
The first customer examples of the 2024 Chevrolet Equinox EV, which will all be yet-to-be-announced limited-edition versions of the 2RS time level, will arrive in Fall 2023, with regular series production models to arrive in early 2024. Details and ordering information for these models will be available closer to the start of production, which will take place at the GM Ramos Arizpe plant in Mexico.
