As a part of GM’s promise to enhance its advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), Super Cruise (RPO code UKL) accessibility has been now been doubled to cover more than 400,000 miles of roads in the United States and Canada.
2023 Cadillac Escalade units built on or after October 3rd, 2022 are already primed for the expanded coverage, which is due to be distributed via an over-the-air-update to previously built and compatible vehicles equipped with Super Cruise.
As a reminder, Super Cruise is available as $2,500 option on Premium Luxury, Sport, Premium Luxury Platinum, Sport Platinum and Escalade-V trim levels. Notably, it’s not offered for the Luxury trim.
The first vehicles to receive the updated Super Cruise coverage will be GM’s full-size SUV lineup, which includes:
- 2023 Chevy Tahoe (High Country and Premier trims)
- 2023 Chevy Suburban (High Country and Premier trims)
- 2023 Cadillac Escalade (all trim levels except Luxury)
- 2023 Cadillac Escalade ESV (all trim levels except Luxury)
- 2023 Cadillac Escalade-V and Escalade-V ESV
- 2023 GMC Yukon (Denali and Denali Ultimate trims)
This expansion follows GM’s plan to offer Super Cruise in 22 models by the end of the 2023 calendar year. On top of that, Ultra Cruise will be hitting North American roads in the near future, and one of the first models to receive it will be the Cadillac Celestiq.
As a reminder, the 2023 Cadillac Escalade is offered with a choice of three different engines. These include the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 L87 gasoline engine, rated at 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque, the 3.0L I6 LM2 turbodiesel Duramax, rated at 277 horsepower and 460 pound-feet, as well as the Escalade-V’s supercharged 6.2L V8 LT4 gasoline engine, which churns out 682 horsepower and 653 pound-feet of torque.
