There's a lot riding in your Suburban. That's why it includes some of the latest safety technology to help keep you safe on the road. Advanced electronic systems, coupled with engineering characteristics like a safety cage, work together to help prevent collisions – and to help protect you if you're in one. It's comprehensive safety before, during and after a collision.
The StabiliTrak™ Electronic Stability Control System with Traction Control and four–wheel anti–lock brakes help you stay in control in slippery road conditions, and Proactive Roll Avoidance engages automatically to help reduce the risk of a rollover crash. Working in conjunction with StabiliTrak™ is Trailer Sway Control that helps reduce trailer sway when towing. The standard Tire Pressure Monitor† is designed to let you know when tire pressure levels are less than optimal.
Suburban is equipped with six standard air bags† for the driver, right front passenger and outboard rear occupants, and a steel safety cage to help preserve occupant space in the vehicle.
OnStar® Automatic Crash Response†, standard for the first six months on all Suburban models, includes built–in sensors that can automatically alert OnStar for help in an emergency. Even if you can't respond, an Advisor can request that emergency help be sent to your exact GPS location. It's peace of mind for you and your family.
