There's a lot riding in your Tahoe. 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 steel 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 antilock brakes help you stay in control in slippery road conditions. Working in conjunction with StabiliTrak™ is Trailer Sway Control that helps reduce trailer sway when towing. You’ll also benefit from Proactive Roll Avoidance that engages automatically to help reduce the risk of a rollover crash and standard Tire Pressure Monitor† that is designed to let you know when tire pressure levels are less than optimal.
Tahoe 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 Tahoe models, means you can be automatically connected to emergency assistance if a collision occurs—whether or not the airbags deploy.
