So I was trying to understand GMs systems of lane keeping and super cruise. It appears they don’t have a lane tracing or lane centering option. This is disappointing to me because the feature works very well on my wife’s RAV4 Prime. You guys think there’s any chance of lane tracing being added to a non super cruise configuration? We don’t have super cruise mapped roads in Hawaii that I can see and I don’t really care to pay extra for a completely hands free system, I would be very satisfied with simple lane tracing and keeping my hands on the wheel.

I would imagine that a non-super cruise equipped vehicle would have some sort of lane tracking feature as part of their safety suite. Even the Bolts have a lane keeping function, although it’s just a primitive steering wheel twitch to get you to pay attention.

Yeah that’s my concern, the jerk is just a corrective action I don’t really care for. On the Toyota the lane tracing will steer continuously with the cruise control on the highway. I didn’t think much of it before but after getting used to it I like it very much.

I agree, lane centering is a very nice feature after you get used to it. Makes for a much more comfortable long distance drive. We had lane keep assist on our previous Atlas, and now Travel Assist on our ID.4, which is even more capable. I hope there is something similar on the Silverado for non-Supercruise equipped vehicles, and even for Supercruise vehicles when not on pre-mapped roads that are needed for Supercruise to work.

Well I can see based on the blazer and lyric we will not get lane centering on the Silverado without super cruise. That’s really lame and making me rethink purchasing an upmarket trim from the WT. they have the same technology from motioneye as other brands that do offer lane centering, but because they want to push people towards super cruise subscriptions are intentionally handicapping non super cruise models with the lane assist jerk correction only. Even though Ford is working on blue cruise they still offer lane centering in their co pilot 360 on F-150 and other models. I live in rural Hawaii where we don’t have major highways and doubt I’ll be seeing super cruise as an option anytime soon nor do I wish to pay $25 a month for it.

Leaving a sour taste in my mouth now that I understand the technology is there and they are disabling it on purpose to push subscription to a service that won’t even be an option for me. Every other major brand offers it including the ones trying to sell the hands free option I don’t need. I don’t even see adaptive cruise control listed as an option on the blazer.

Adaptive cruise is available as an option on current Chevy models so I assume it will be there. Maybe given that the capability is there they will add lane centering or update later, doubtful, the pull of subscription revenue on business is strong.

No subscriptions for me. My WT will be close to bare bones, anyway, since I'm not interested in all the electronic nannies/aides.
