Do you care about Supercruise? I don't.

Unless the car is Level 5 totally self driving (it's not), I don't want it (or the subscription fee) . Why? These "hands free" systems are good enough to lull many into an over reliance on the car driving itself. Now, GM has done a great job in monitoring the driver's attention with Supercruise to help address the problem of drivers not paying attention (deciding to text, play games, watch a movie, etc. ) while they are supposed to be driving. But if I still have to be able to grab the wheel at a moment's notice, what's the point? I'll either be on edge waiting to take over or I'll be complacent with a slower reaction time.

Thoughts?

Super Cruise is a must for me. I like what it offers, and I wouldn't be on a knifes edge either.
Did you know it's $25/month/$300/year?

Super Cruise details: Super Cruise for Electric Vehicles | Chevrolet

Have you tested it in the Bolt EUV or a Cadillac? Just curious.

From the Chevy Department of fine print:
1. Safety or driver assistance features are no substitute for the driver’s responsibility to operate the vehicle in a safe manner. The driver should remain attentive to traffic, surroundings and road conditions at all times. Visibility, weather, and road conditions may affect feature performance. Read the vehicle’s owner’s manual for more important feature limitations and information.

All Super Cruise-equipped vehicles include 3 years of connectivity to support functionality, after which an eligible paid Connected Services plan is required.

Yeah I know all about this, I've been following it closely. Also as a note it's now 400k Miles of compatible roads and growing.
Also having a Super Cruise Equipped vehicle adds a lot of resale value to it, just as ACC does to Volts.

Super Cruise is impressive, no question. I'm just not sure what problem it's solving for me. Especially at $300/year.

What will it add to your Equinox EV driving experience, Nebula1701?

What chart is that, Evan1?

Like ACC it will make driving long slogs down the highway much easier and less grating. Still paying attention but hey you aren't needing to do every maneuver anymore and for me I would really like it in stop and go traffic.

It was a cut-and-paste of all the trims/options.
Nothing has been deleted. Maybe it's in another thread?

But there are quite a few trim charts in this thread:

I’m definitely thinking about giving Super Cruise a shot if I get an Equinox EV. I know it’s a big chunk up front, but I should know after the 3 years of included service whether I want to continue to pay for it.

Hey All,

I was finding it difficult to compare trim levels so I decided to throw all the trim options we know into a spreadsheet and arrange it more like a standard brochure.

Let me know if I missed anything or if you find issues. I’ll try and keep updating it in this thread as new information comes to light.

I hope you find this useful

Thanks for the clarification, MaybeFutureBuyer!

No worries. Now I'm in a real pickle. At first, I completely disregarded the 1LT because it didn't have the option for an electric seat. I need memory seats because my wife and I are always sharing one car (we drive only 5Kkm/year), but now, the 1LT seems compelling, but that doesn't even get the option for a 17" screen, presence liftgate, and adaptive cruise control, which are also SOMEWHAT important to me. Does anyone has a photo of the interior with the 11" screen?

Does anyone know if the 1LT comes with a power liftgate (no presence detection needed)?

Then you have the 2LT, where you pay extra for pretty much nothing but the larger battery, and the option to pay for more accessories. Then you have the 3LT, which actually gets you some of these accessories. So I'm either going to get the 1LT (With extended battery) or the 3LT... because getting the 2LT with no options makes no sense over the 1LT, and getting the 2LT and paying extra for all the options will probably be more expensive than just getting the 3LT...Or am I missing something?

I have on order The Fisker Ocean Sport, FWD, LFP batteries, estimated range 250 mile, production starts the 17th, with delivery expected fall ‘23. What I really like about LFP is the daily charging of 0-100% with no adverse affects. What has given me pause is the interior in black cloth or black faux leather. Not a black interior fan, thus my interest in the Equinox EV, FWD.With the Ultium platform larger battery pack rated at 300 miles with a full charge, but daily 80% it compares with the Sport. The interiors of the 2LT/3LT and standard or options looks promising. Waiting for pricing and additional info.

Does anybody know if the modules on the Ultium battery are individually replaceable? Because if so, it's a game-changer in the "Battery replacement anxiety" category. A cell went out? No need for a 15K pack, just replace a $1500 module out of the pack. I like to keep my cars for as long as they can last...So that's really important to me...Better for the environment as well.
