GMC PRO SAFETY PLUS

Acadia’s advanced technology and safety features allow you to stay connected, informed and aware of surrounding vehicles as you confidently navigate the open road. Pro Safety Plus is available on SLE. Standard on SLT, AT4 and Denali.

Safety or driver assistance 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. Visibility, weather, and road conditions may affect feature performance. Read the vehicle's owner's manual for more important feature limitations and information.

AUTOMATIC EMERGENCY BRAKING

When operating below 50 mph, this feature works with Forward Collision Alert to help you avoid or reduce the severity of a front-end collision with a detected vehicle you are following. Camera technology is used to automatically provide hard emergency braking or enhance the driver’s hard braking.

FRONT PEDESTRIAN BRAKING

This feature can help you avoid or reduce the severity of a front-end collision with a pedestrian it detects directly ahead of you. It provides pedestrian alerts and can even automatically provide hard emergency braking or enhance the driver’s hard braking. The system works at speeds below 50 mph during the daytime. It has limited nighttime and low visibility performance.

INTELLIBEAM®

When driving conditions are dark, IntelliBeam® can automatically turn on the vehicle’s high beam headlamps on and off according to surrounding traffic conditions.

REAR PARK ASSIST

Rear Park Assist can provide distance alerts to nearby detected objects behind your vehicle to help you park and avoid collisions at low speeds.

REAR PARK ASSIST

Rear Park Assist can provide distance alerts to nearby detected objects behind your vehicle to help you park and avoid collisions at low speeds.

LANE KEEP ASSIST WITH LANE DEPARTURE WARNING

Uses a brief, gentle steering wheel turn to alert you when you may be unintentionally drifting out of detected lane lines, so you can steer to stay safely in your lane.  If needed, you may receive additional Lane Departure Warning alerts. System alerts do not occur if you’re using your turn signal or it detects you may be intentionally leaving your lane.

FOLLOWING DISTANCE INDICATOR

Displays the gap time in seconds between your vehicle and a detected vehicle you’re following. This can help you decide if you’re following much too closely.

FORWARD COLLISION ALERT

Can warn you if the feature detects a potential front-end collision with a vehicle you’re following so you can quickly take action. It can also provide a tailgating alert if you’re following a vehicle much too closely.

ADVANCED SAFETY AND DRIVER ASSISTANCE TECHNOLOGY

ADAPTIVE CRUISE CONTROL

Denali’s available Adaptive Cruise Control can automatically maintain a driver-selected gap time from the detected vehicle you’re following while you steer. This feature reduces the need for you to frequently brake and accelerate when you’re driving.

LANE CHANGE ALERT WITH SIDE BLIND ZONE ALERT

This feature can provide side-mirror visual alerts when a detected moving vehicle is quickly approaching or is in your side blind zone. It can help you avoid lane change collisions. Standard on all trims.

REAR CROSS TRAFFIC ALERT

This feature can warn you of detected left or right cross traffic behind your vehicle when you’re in Reverse. Standard on all trims.

REAR PARK ASSIST

Rear Park Assist can provide distance alerts to nearby detected objects behind your vehicle to help you park and avoid collisions when you're in Reverse at low speeds. Standard on all trims.
