As a part of GM’s promise to improve 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 GMC Yukon units built on or after October 3rd, 2022 are already ready 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 part of the Advanced Technology Package (CWN) on the Denali trim level of the GMC Yukon, and costs an extra $3,585. Meanwhile, on the Denali Ultimate trim, it’s available as a standalone option for $2,200.
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.

The first is the naturally aspirated 5.3L V8 L84 gasoline engine, which is rated at 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque.
