2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV – Keeps Getting Smarter!



A brief look at the ‘over the air’ software update utility on the 2017 Chevy Bolt EV. Also, the ‘follow distance’ feature. Your Bolt will keep getting smarter! *** UPDATE*** Chevy hasn’t actually turned up this service yet (Dec 2017). The latest software is 14.4.2 and you’d have to visit the dealer to have it updated.

    Note GM uses a RADAR/LIDAR sensors for their ACC systems. The 2017 Bolt EV does not have a RADAR/LIDAR sensor in it. So it cannot be software upgraded to have ACC. GM does have some test Bolt EV's driving around with RADAR/LIDAR systems in them (i'm not talking about the cruise automation cars) so I would imagine a future model year (perhaps the 2018) will have ACC or even a Chevrolet version of Cadillac's super-cruise. Note the 2017 Volt has the option of ACC but those versions have a very special grill so as not to interfere with the RADAR sensors.
