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.
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 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. Read the vehicle Owner's Manual for important feature limitations and information.
Lane Keep Assist 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.
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 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.
FORWARD AUTOMATIC BRAKING
If the Available 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.
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 air bag technologies add an extra degree of protection.
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 safety belts, the LATCH (Lower Anchors and Top Tethers for Children) system, and air bags, help to reduce the risk of injury in a collision.
Chevrolet vehicles offer some of the latest air bag technologies, with many vehicles offering 10 standard air bags. A 360-degree smart sensor system, available on select models, ensures optimal air bag deployment and is able to adjust inflation according to the severity of a collision. An industry-first front center side-impact air bag 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.
In the event of a collision, Chevrolet drivers benefit from the safety and support of OnStar®† with Automatic Crash Response. Built-in sensors can automatically alert an OnStar Advisor, who is immediately connected to your vehicle to see if you need help. Even if you don’t respond, an OnStar Advisor can use GPS technology to pinpoint your exact location and request that emergency help be sent immediately. Most Chevrolet models come with OnStar for three months.

Always use safety belts and child restraints. Children are safer when properly secured in a rear seat in the appropriate child restraint. See the Owner’s Manual for more information. Air bag inflation can cause severe injury or death to anyone too close to the air bag when it deploys. Be sure every occupant is properly restrained.
