This is very promising for the Super Cruise system that will be on the Hummer. Consumer Reports posted their ratings for 17 driver assistance systems and Cadillac's Super Cruise finished first ahead of Tesla's Autopilot and the rest of the competition.

Something to take note of on this Consumer Reports review is that they used the last generation Supercruise, in the CT-6, and not the 2nd generation which is being rolled out now on the 2021 Escalade with more features. Also their track, and city test methods did not reveal Supercruise's best feature, which is hands free operation on mapped highways. I have tried it, its awesome, went 22 miles without touching the steering wheel.

Wow, GM just blew Tesla out of the water in this comparo. This is especially gratifying because they've been playing catch-up with Autopilot for some time now, and they've slowly been creeping up until this year...where they outdid Tesla by a substantial margin. Great news.

The other factor to note (beyond what @Tom E-Tron rightly mentioned about the even more improved SuperCruise 2.0 system coming out with the Escalade and Hummer) is that there are, as far as I know, zero recorded deaths related to SuperCruise usage, showing how GM's more conservative route to self-driving with increased emphasis on safety has really paid off. Autopilot has been involved in numerous accidents resulting in at least 15-20 deaths, which is why they got knocked on several of the CR categories.

The beauty of Super Cruise is that you don't get disillusioned that the car completely drives itself without your help unlike some Tesla people that take the word autopilot too literal.

You just summed up the situation here to perfection. Couldn't have said it better. It's kind of sad really, I've been talking to a number of Tesla fans since the CR report came out, and they're in total denial, blaming everything, making all the excuses, and refusing to even entertain the idea that what you said is the truth.
