If the system detects that a front-end collision situation is imminent while following a detected vehicle, the system alerts the driver to a potential crash. It also alerts the driver if the driver is following a detected vehicle much too closely.
If the vehicle is traveling at a low speed and the available system detects that a front-end collision situation is imminent while following a detected vehicle, and you haven’t applied the brakes, the system automatically applies the brakes to help reduce the collision’s severity. The system may even help to avoid the collision at very low speeds.
Below 5 mph, provides distance-to-object alerts to help the driver park and avoid crashing into nearby detected objects directly ahead or behind the vehicle during low-speed maneuvering.
Provides side-mirror alerts to help you avoid crashing into a moving vehicle detected in your side blind spot (or zone) or a vehicle that is rapidly approaching your side blind spot during a lane-change maneuver.
Provides gentle steering wheel turns (and Lane Departure Warning alerts if necessary) to help drivers avoid crashes due to unintentionally drifting out of their lane when they are not actively steering and their turn signal is not activated.
When in Reverse, provides alerts to help driver avoid crashing into approaching detected left- or right-cross traffic (e.g., out of a crowded parking space or driveway with side obstructions).
Automatically turns on and off the vehicle's high-beam headlamps according to surrounding traffic conditions. The automatic high beams stay on until the system detects an approaching vehicle's headlamps or follows a vehicle's tail lamps.
The GM-patented Safety Alert Seat provides the driver the option of getting haptic seat-bottom vibration pulses instead of audible crash avoidance alerts.
This available feature enhances regular cruise control to allow the vehicle to automatically follow a detected vehicle ahead at the driver-selected following gap while you steer, reducing the need to frequently brake and accelerate.
