The safety features use onboard cameras and radar to detect other vehicles and objects and prevent driver error from causing accidents. Here is a closer look at some of the latest advancements.
Forward Collision Alert
Your vehicle can scan the roadway ahead and detect slower vehicles and objects that are road hazards. When a vehicle or other object gets in the way, an alert warns the driver. Vehicles equipped with an adaptive cruise control will adjust speed to prevent striking an object ahead.
Forward Automatic Braking
The same technology that enables forward collision alert also enables forward automatic braking. When an object is detected, the brakes automatically slow the vehicle and even bring it to a safe stop instead of slamming into a potentially deadly object, such as the rear end of a tractor-trailer.
Front Pedestrian Braking
People sometimes get in the way while on foot, and it is easy to miss them while focusing on the roadway. When a pedestrian is located on a street corner or sidewalk and enters the pathway, the front pedestrian braking system slows the vehicle and brings it to stop if needed to prevent a potentially deadly accident.
Safety Alert Seats
Even the seats are part of the improved safety technology included on new GMC vehicles. The patented Safety Alert Seat works in tandem with other onboard technology to predict when an accident is about to occur. When it detects a vehicle or other large object approaching at a rate that indicates an accident is about to happen, the seat will vibrate to warn drivers and passengers. The vibration occurs in the same relative direction as the impending crash to better enable evasive maneuvers.
The safety alert seats are among the newest and most compelling pieces of safety technology provided on GMC vehicles. You can contact us to learn more about how it works and what it does to make your travels safer.
Strategically positioned airbags greatly improve survival rates in vehicular accidents. Airbags located in the front, side, and along roof rails help to prevent potentially deadly injuries. Child safety features enable you to turn off some bags to prevent potential injuries to small children.
