The race for first place in hands-free driving will intensify later this year when General Motors Co. begins selling an advanced version of its Super Cruise system.

The new version of Super Cruise will enable the vehicle to change lanes like Tesla Inc.’s Navigate on Autopilot driver-assist feature. When the driver touches the turn signal, Super Cruise will use vehicle sensors and other technology to look for nearby cars, find an opening in an available lane and move over. The current version allows drivers to take their hands off the wheel for a limited time, but they can’t change lanes.

Super Cruise, currently sold only on the Cadillac CT6 sedan, will be available on the luxury brand’s 2021 CT4 and CT5 sedans and new Escalade SUV. GM also said it has added to the number of highways where drivers can use Super Cruise, expanding it to 200,000 miles of U.S. and Canadian roads.

GM has taken a conservative approach with Super Cruise, hoping to make the system failsafe before adding advanced features and putting it in multiple models. Tesla’s Autopilot is already available in all of its models, and some of these cars have been involved in crashes that are being investigated by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
