The all-new 2015 Tahoe full-size SUV offers a host of ingenious safety technology, including the class-exclusive front center air bag,† designed to help protect drivers and passengers from all sides. New to Tahoe, these innovative driver assist technologies use strategically located cameras and radar sensors around this full-size SUV to warn drivers of potential risks on the road or even in a parking lot.
Standard on all models, the rear vision camera displays a view of the area immediately behind the vehicle on the audio screen, making it easier to see what's behind you while backing up. This feature helps drivers maneuver Tahoe more efficiently, especially when hooking up a trailer.
Available Crash Imminent Braking† technology uses short-range radar and ultrasonic sensors in the bumpers of Tahoe to help prevent or mitigate front collisions. The system will alert the driver if the lead vehicle slows unexpectedly. If the driver does not react quickly enough, the system will automatically apply the brakes. The Crash Imminent Braking feature operates whether the Adaptive Cruise Control is on or not.
Tahoe offers an available Safety Alert Seat that uses directional seat vibrations on the left and/or right side of the driver seat cushion to alert the driver of a potential threat. When a potential hazard occurs from the front and rear, the system triggers pulses on both sides of the seat.
Working in tandem with Side Blind Zone Alert, available Lane Change Alert employs long-range radar sensors in the rear quarter panels to help detect and warn the driver of fast approaching vehicles in the adjacent lane up to 230 feet away, not just in the blind zone areas. Another available feature, Lane Departure Warning, gives you a haptic alert if you drift out of your lane without using a turn signal.
Available Rear Cross Traffic Alert uses the same radar sensors as the Side Blind Zone Alert feature to help warn drivers of approaching cross traffic when backing up. Visual and haptic alerts are triggered if moving vehicles are detected.
Available Forward Collision Alert technology activates at speeds above 25 mph and uses visual and audible warnings, as well as the Safety Alert Seat feature, to warn drivers of possible front-end collision threats. Drivers can use the button on the steering wheel to control the closing speed range of the system through a three-way (far, medium or near) gap setting.
Available Adaptive Cruise Control uses radar to detect a vehicle ahead and automatically adjusts the SUV's speed to maintain a selected following time/distance. For example, if the radar detects a slower vehicle ahead within the selected following gap time, the system will reduce the vehicle’s speed to match the gap time. When no traffic is detected ahead, the system will accelerate the vehicle back to the previously set speed.
Available Side Blind Zone Alert employs short-range radar sensors in the rear quarter panels of the SUV to “look” for other vehicles in the blind zone areas. If a vehicle is detected, the system will illuminate a amber symbol in the side view mirror. If the driver activates the turn signal, the symbol will flash to provide extra warning not to change lanes.
