GMC offers the latest safety innovations with advanced technology to help keep you safer and confident on the road. Take a look at the precision engineering and attention to detail that goes into every safety feature.

 

Safety 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. Read the vehicle’s owner’s manual for important feature limitations and information.

 

Active Tow

Active Tow technology Uses Rear Vision Camera overlays to help align a vehicle with a trailer, and provides a camera view to check the trailer when driving.

Adaptive Cruise Control

Adaptive cruise control technology enhances regular Cruise Control to allow the vehicle to automatically follow a detected vehicle ahead at the driver-selected following gap while the driver steers, reducing the need for the driver to frequently brake and accelerate.

Following Distance Indicator

Following Distance Indicator provides driver with the following (or headway) time to a detected vehicle that the driver is following to let the driver know if he or she is following the vehicle too closely or violating vehicle following-distance laws.

Forward Collision Alert

If the system detects that a front-end collision situation is imminent while following a detected vehicle, the system alerts the driver to a potential crash. It also alerts the driver if the driver is following a detected vehicle much too closely.

Front Automatic Braking

If the vehicle is traveling at a low speed and the system detects that a front-end collision situation is imminent while following a detected vehicle and the driver has not already applied the brakes, the system automatically applies brakes to help reduce the collision’s severity. The system may even help avoid the collision at very low speeds.

Front Pedestrian Braking

If the system detects that a pedestrian is directly ahead and a collision is imminent, and the driver has not already applied the brakes, the system alerts the driver and, if necessary, automatically applies the brakes to help reduce the collision’s severity or avoid the collision.

Front and Rear Parking Assist

Below 5 mph (8 km/h), provides distance-to-object alerts to help the driver park and avoid crashing into nearby detected objects directly ahead or behind the vehicle during low-speed maneuvering.

Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning

Provides gentle steering wheel turns (and Lane Departure Warning alerts if necessary) to help drivers avoid crashes due to unintentionally drifting out of their lane when they are not actively steering and their turn signal is not activated.

Rear Cross Traffic Alert

When in reverse, provides alerts to help driver avoid crashing into approaching detected left- or right-cross traffic (e.g., out of a crowded parking space or driveway with side obstructions).

Rear Parking Assist

When driving in reverse below 5 mph (8 km/h), provides distance-to-object alerts to help the driver park and avoid crashing into nearby detected objects directly behind the vehicle during low-speed maneuvering.

Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert

Provides side-mirror alerts to help the driver avoid crashing into a moving vehicle detected in their side blind spot (or zone) or a vehicle that is rapidly approaching their side blind spot during a lane-change maneuver.
