When you purchase a new Buick or GMC vehicle from us, you know that you’re taking ownership of an upscale car, SUV or truck that’s loaded with style and features. However, you’re also benefitting from the thoughtful design and engineering that goes into these models. You see, these vehicles come with the state-of-the-art safety features that today’s discerning drivers want. Here are just a few of the driver-assistance and safety features available for your GMC or Buick:
Heads Up Display
This feature presents all important vehicle and safety information, such as speed and compass bearing, on the windshield in front of the driver. Thanks to having this information presented right in front of you, you’re able to keep your eyes on the road — where they belong.
Safety Alert Seat
You have a lot to keep up with when you’re driving, and dangerous situations can pop up anywhere. When problems pop up in front, behind, left, or right of your car, the sensor warnings in the Safety Alert Seat vibrate in the appropriate area to give you a tactile alert.
Teen Driver
This is hands-down one of our favorite safety features. The system allows parents to set specific limits for both vehicle speed and audio volume when their young driver is behind the wheel, helping to reinforce the good driving habits you want them to master. An in-vehicle report card provides information on driving behavior, so you’re able to better understand what challenges your teen faces — even when you’re not in the vehicle with them.
Side Blind Zone Alert and Lane Change Alert
These work together, monitoring your blind zones to ensure your safety. Blind Zone Alert and Lane Change Alert send out signals if you’re trying to change lanes and there’s a vehicle in your blind spot — or a rapidly-approaching vehicle.
Lane Departure Warning
If it senses that you’re drifting out of your travel lane, Lane Departure Warning warns you and gently corrects your vehicle back into your lane.
Forward Collision Warning
If this system senses an imminent collision coming, it delivers both visual and tactile warnings to alert you to take evasive actions.
