SAFETY

The 2018 Acadia Denali mid-size luxury SUV offers a comprehensive suite of driver alert and active safety technologies that rely on a sophisticated network of cameras, radar, and ultrasonic sensors to help prepare you for the unexpected.

ADVANCED DRIVER SAFETY TECHNOLOGIES

The Acadia Denali SUV pairs intelligent technology with driver-centric engineering to help you stay safe on the road. Safety features include:
 

  • Low Speed Forward Automatic Braking
  • IntelliBeam
  • Front and Rear Park Assist
  • Rear Cross Traffic Alert
  • Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning
  • Following Distance Indicator

SURROUND VISION CAMERA

The available Surround Vision Camera system provides a “bird’s-eye” view of what’s around you. Four cameras help you avoid obstacles, reduce blind spots and navigate tight spaces with more clarity and confidence.

LANE CHANGE ALERT WITH SIDE BLIND ZONE ALERT

When a car is detected entering the Acadia Denali's side blind zone, the Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert system displays a symbol in the outside mirror to provide an alert to the driver that the space is occupied. If the turn signal is activated and a vehicle is also detected on the same side, the display will flash as an extra warning not to change lanes.

FRONT PEDESTRIAN BRAKING

Front Pedestrian Braking uses Acadia Denali’s camera to scan the road ahead. 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.

SAFETY ALERT DRIVER SEAT

The innovative Safety Alert Driver Seat vibrates to alert you with the direction of potential hazards. When one of the driver alert technologies (for example, Rear Cross Traffic Alert) triggers an alert, the Safety Alert Driver Seat vibrates on the left or right bolster, depending on the direction of the potential hazard. If the potential hazard was in front of or behind you, both sides of the seat cushion would vibrate.

TEEN DRIVER

Teen Driver is a built-in system that helps encourage safe driving habits for new drivers. It automatically activates certain safety systems if equipped, and allows parents to set limits on other features. A Report Card provides information on driving behavior to help parents to continue to coach their teens.

A NOTE ABOUT YOUR SAFETY

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.

Your safety is very important to us. If you want to determine whether or not there is a recall on your current vehicle or on a vehicle you are considering, visit safercar.gov or call (888) 327-4236.
