There are all different types of drivers on the road, from brand new drivers to the elderly. Not only are there different types of drivers, but road conditions can change in a heartbeat. No matter the situation, it is important to be as safe as possible while driving. GMC understands this and offers safety features as a standard on select models. Whether you’re considering the 2020 GMC Sierra 1500 or 2020 GMC Terrain, GMC’s safety features help protect you and your loved ones.
Automatic Emergency Braking
The Automatic Emergency Braking feature can detect a pedestrian or vehicle directly ahead of your GMC. If you have not applied the brakes, your GMC will automatically apply hard emergency braking or enhancing driver hard braking to help you avoid an accident. Your GMC will also notify you by a red light on your dashboard and loud beeping to catch your attention.
Forward Collision Alert
The Forward Collision Alert works similarly to the Front Pedestrian Braking with audio and visual alerts notifying you if a vehicle collision is imminent. It will also apply the brakes if you have not done so already. It even detects if you’re following the vehicle ahead of you too closely to help avoid an accident.
Following Distance Indicator
GMC’s Following Distance Indicator safety feature tell you the gap time between you and the vehicle ahead of you. It will also notify you if you are following too closely to help you avoid getting into an accident.
Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning
While driving a 2020 GMC Terrain or almost any other GMC model, the Lane Keep Assist can help you from drifting out of your lane. When you are drifting out of your lane, your GMC will automatically gently turn the steering wheel to correct the mistake. This feature will be activated if you are not actively steering the wheel or if your turn signal is on. You will be notified by the Lane Departure Warning on your dashboard.
GMC’s IntelliBeam Headlamps are an innovative way to safely navigate the roads at night. The IntelliBeam Headlamps automatically turn on your GMC’s high beams when driving conditions are dark. To enhance your safety and those around you, once your GMC detects oncoming headlamps or taillamps, the IntelliBeam Headlamps automatically switch back to low beams.
Advanced Safety Systems
Along with the GMC Pro Safety package, GMCs have available safety systems to help boost your confidence while driving.
GMC eases the minds of parents everywhere by offering the Teen Driver safety feature. It is available on the following models: Terrain, Acadia, Canyon, Sierra 1500, Sierra HD, Yukon, and Yukon XL. This feature allows you to set a speed limit warning and limits audio volume. At the end of your teen’s drive, you will receive a report card showing how your teen drove. While Teen Driver is activated the following features will also be activated: Stability Control, Traction Control, GMC Pro Safety Features, Reverse Automatic Braking, Rear Cross Traffic, Side Blind Zone Alert, and Front and Rear Park Assist. These safety features will help keep your teen safe and help them to drive even when you’re not there.
Safety Alert Seat
When collision-avoidance safety features are activated, the front seat will gently pulsate. The side of your GMC that is close to a collision, is the same side of your seat that will pulsate. For certain alerts, the entire seat will gently pulsate.
The 2020 GMC Terrain and many other models have available OnStar. Sometimes collisions occur and there’s nothing you can do; if that happens to you, OnStar is there to help get you the assistance you need from emergency responders. OnStar has your back with automatic crash response, turn-by-turn navigation, crisis assist and more!
Innovative driver safety features that are available on GMC Sierra 1500s and many more models, make GMCs one of the safest vehicles on the road. Whether you’re carpooling or letting your teenager driver your GMC, you can have peace-of-mind knowing that they are safer than they would be driving anything else.
