- Chevy plans to add Super Cruise to its 2023 Tahoe and Suburban.
- The technology is limited to the top-of-the-line Premier and High Country versions.
- The semiconductor shortage, however, could ultimately affect Chevy’s plans.
The 2023 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban are the latest General Motors models to offer the company’s hands-free Super Cruise driver-assist system. Or at least that’s what the brand intends to do.

When asked if Chevrolet might ultimately need to push back the Super Cruise debut in the Tahoe and Suburban to the 2024 model year, the same spokesperson replied that Chevy “continues to monitor chip availability and will make this decision when our company deems it appropriate within the model year. cycle. »

Nonetheless, it’s entirely possible that Chevy released this information under the guise of “hoping for the best but planning for the worst.” If the worst happens and Chevy removes Super Cruise from the 2023 Tahoe and Suburban option sheets, buyers of these big SUVs will find the brand makes only a handful of very small changes for the new model year. Three new exterior tints (Silver Sage Metallic, Sterling Gray Metallic and Radiant Red Tintcoat) are added to the color palettes of both vehicles, while a new accessory grille, which forgoes the bowtie badge for the Chevrolet name, is available on LS, LT, RST and Premier trims.
That said, if Chevy is successful in bringing Super Cruise to the 2023 Tahoe and Suburban, consumers of those models should plan to spend big bucks on the Level 2 driver assistance system, as it’s limited to pricey Premiers. and High Country SUVs. toppings.
