You have to get it on the 2020. Not available in the 2019 model. One of the main reasons I didn't buy a GM pickup truck when I bought back in 2018 model year.

Have you tried it?
My wife hates it. My mother-in-law likes it. I have mixed feelings...the system lagged when traffic sped up (big minus) but it does keep a safe distance at all times from the vehicle in front of me very well. I find myself using it as 'safety net'...its on but I'm overriding it with my right foot when needed.

I am kinda biased since I worked on the adaptive control system while I was a design engineer at GM. I always said my next new truck would have it. Of course when I went to order a truck in 2018, GM didn't offer it on any of its pickup so I went with the Ford. Its the best option I have on my truck. Best thing for towing since it really lessens fatigue. I can't imagine having a truck without it.

Well, maybe. I changed out the stock Rancho shocks on my 2500 with a set of Bilsteins. I dropped the back with a set of 2" McGaughy's drop shackles to take out the cat in heat rake. I installed a set of 1500 lb SumoSprings urethane cellular foam supports in place of the axle bump stops, front and raar, which offers air bag quality ride, and I inflate the tires in accordance with the tire maker load pressure chart based on the actual axle weight and the ride is pretty darn close to the ride of a 1500.

Even with the back end drop, with over a ton of material in the back end it just starts getting to a level stance. And the Sumo's really provide a quality ride while offering a lot of support.

If one wants to get an ear full, stop in at a major truck stop and talk with company drivers who have adaptive cruise on their semi trucks. You will learn the latest swear words.

I'm glad you like it and I think it a good feature for some.

Everyone is different (I mean no slight) but I just don't find towing all that taxing. For the vast majority of the time behind the wheel I really like the journey.
