Safety is often timing the most important consideration in auto accident prevention; a customer can make when deciding to purchase a new vehicle. That’s why Chevrolet offers a wide range of available features and technologies to help you and your family drive with confidence. Let’s start with these topics.
Front and Rear Parking Assist:
When the vehicle is below 5 miles an hour, the Front and Rear Parking Assist provide distance to object alerts in order to help the driver park and avoid crashing into nearby detected objects directly ahead or behind the vehicle during low-speed maneuvering.
Rear Cross-Traffic Alert:
When in reverse the Rear Cross-Traffic Alert helps the driver avoid crashing into approaching detected left or right cross traffic. For example, out of a crowded parking space or driveway with the blind spot obstructions.
Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert:
This provides side mirror alerts to help the driver avoid crashing into a moving vehicle detected in their side blind spot or zone or a vehicle rapidly approaching from their side blind spot during a lane-changing maneuver. This can be especially helpful for families with large amounts of groceries or luggage piled up in the rear cargo area.
Lane Keep Assist and Lane Departure Warning:
This provides gentle steering wheel turns and alerts if necessary, to help drivers avoid crashes due to unintentionally drifting out of their lane when they’re not actively steering, and their turn signals not activated. However, if you find yourself drifting off the road during a long road trip, don’t rely on Lane Keep Assist or a vat of strong coffee to keep you safe. Do everyone on the road a favor. Either switch drivers or find the nearest hotel and call it a night. Sound good?
Intel abeam Headlamps:
These will activate the high beam headlamps to illuminate the road ahead and improve visibility especially in dark conditions. With the help of the front camera mounted on the windshield in front of the inside rear-view mirror, the system recognizes the headlamps or tail lamps of another vehicle and automatically switches the headlamps to low beam in order to prevent impairing the vision of drivers and other cars.
Adaptive Cruise Control:
Adaptive Cruise Control enhances regular cruise control to allow the vehicle to automatically follow a detected vehicle ahead at the drivers selected following gap while the driver steers, reducing the need for the driver to frequently brake or accelerate. Now I know what you’re thinking. Benny, what if I misjudged the following gap and I start following the car in front of me wait too closely? Well, I’m glad you asked and that brings us to?
Forward Collision Alerts:
Forward Collision Alerts tell the driver that a front-end collision situation is imminent while following a detected vehicle. The system will also alert the driver if the drivers following detected vehicle much too closely.
Low Speed Forward Automatic Braking:
Occurs when the vehicle is traveling below 50 miles an hour and the system senses that a front-end collision with a detected vehicle is imminent. The system automatically applies the brakes to potentially help reduce the severity of impact. It may even help avoid an accident altogether at very low speeds. And finally?
Safety Alert Seat:
The Safety Alert Seat provides the driver the option of getting seat bottom vibration pulses instead of audible crash avoidance alerts.
And don’t forget, safety or driver assistance features are no substitute for the driver’s responsibility to operate the vehicle safely on the road.
