 SAFETY

A smarter approach to safety

At Chevrolet, the safety of drivers and passengers is of high priority. That’s why we offer a comprehensive and innovative approach to safety aimed at helping you make your drive safer before, during and after a collision. It’s this “prevent, protect, respond” philosophy that drives Chevrolet in its efforts to deliver outstanding vehicle safety.

Prevent

The best type of collision is the one that’s avoided entirely, which is why Chevrolet offers some of the most ingenious and proactive automotive safety technologies on the road today, like the StabiliTrak® Electronic Stability Control System that’s standard on all Chevrolet vehicles and helps increase safety and driver confidence by automatically helping you control your vehicle in low-traction driving conditions.

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 Owner’s Manual for more important feature limitations and information.

Lane Keep Assist

Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning is an available camera-based system that warns you when you're unintentionally drifting from your lane and helps gently nudge your steering wheel to help prevent lane departure if you don't take action.

Rear Cross Traffic Alert

With available Rear Cross Traffic Alert, radar sensors detect other vehicles approaching from either direction and utilize the rear vision camera to visually warn you of those vehicles, like when you're backing out of your driveway or parking space.

Forward Safety Awareness

FORWARD COLLISION ALERT

Available Forward Collision Alert systems use camera technology and/or available radar to alert you to detected slowing vehicles in your path. It also alerts the driver when following a detected vehicle much too closely.

LOW-SPEED FORWARD AUTOMATIC BRAKING

If the available Low-Speed Forward Automatic Braking system detects that a front-end collision situation is imminent while following a detected vehicle, the system can automatically apply brakes to help reduce the collision’s severity or even help avoid the collision at very low speeds.

Protect

While preventive safety technology can help you avoid a collision, Chevrolet also offers an array of protective safety features to help protect you and your passengers in the event of a crash. Strong vehicle structures help to absorb and dissipate crash impact energy and innovative airbag technologies add an extra degree of protection.

Sturdy, durable construction

Chevrolet utilizes high-strength steel and other alloys in our vehicle structures in order to maximize protection without sacrificing weight, performance and efficiency. These safety cages help absorb and channel crash impact energy and direct it away from the cabin and its occupants. Restraint systems including seat belts, the LATCH (Lower Anchors and Top Tethers for Children) system and airbags help to reduce the risk of injury in a collision.

360° Airbags

Chevrolet vehicles offer some of the latest airbag technologies, with many vehicles offering 10 standard airbags. A 360-degree smart sensor system, available on select models, ensures optimal airbag deployment and is able to adjust inflation according to the severity of a collision. An industry-first front center side-impact airbag deploys to the inboard side of the driver seat to add a layer of protection between driver and passenger and is available on Chevrolet Traverse, Suburban and Tahoe.

Respond

With the OnStar Safety & Security Plan, someone is there when needed. When the unexpected happens on the road, an OnStar Advisor is just a button-push away, ready to help. With critical features like Automatic Crash Response and Stolen Vehicle Assistance, the OnStar Safety & Security Plan helps you and those you love when the unpredictable happens. Added peace of mind comes from specially trained OnStar Advisors who are always available to make sure you are never alone.

AUTOMATIC CRASH RESPONSE

Built in-sensors can automatically alert an OnStar Advisor. With Injury Severity Prediction, Advisors can help prepare first responders for the severity of a crash and any injuries.
