Forward Collision Alert with Automatic Emergency Braking

 

Forward Collision Alert goes to work by warning you as soon as it detects a possible front-end collision due to following too closely to the vehicle ahead, so you can act quickly and remedy the situation. It also notifies you with a tailgating alert when driving too closely to the rear of the vehicle in front. Automatic Emergency Braking works with Forward Collision Alert, activating at speeds less than 80 km/h, by utilizing its camera tech to initiate hard braking or to assist in the driver’s own braking to help mitigate the effects of a collision.

Front Pedestrian Braking

 

Front Pedestrian Braking works at speeds of 80 km/h and below during the daytime (it has varied nighttime and low visibility performance), detecting a possible collision with a pedestrian and notifying you to act, braking itself or assisting with the driver’s hard braking, when needed.

Lane Change Alert & Lane Keep Assist

 

Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert

 

Your Silverado is a large truck, and with that comes the easy possibility of a small car or motorcycle sliding into your blind spot and leaving you unaware of its position. Help protect against that and make sure you’re always able to lane change safely with this Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert. It provides side mirror alerts in the form of a visual as soon as a vehicle is either in your blind spot or is fastly approaching.

Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning

 

You may think you can easily maintain a central position in your lane, but it only takes a small movement to drift out of position. Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning acts by giving you a small steering wheel turn alert, so you can steady your truck back in the lane. Additional alerts will occur when needed, although the system won’t activate if you’re using your turn signal or any other intentional lane changing.

Front & Rear Park Assist & Rear Cross Traffic Alert

 

Parking the big body of your truck is a breeze thanks to the Front & Rear Park Assist system.

Easily avoid collisions at minimal speeds with this park system always looking out for you.

Reverse only when safe thanks to Rear Cross Traffic Alert.

Rear Camera Mirror

 

The Silverado is all about taking traditional safety measures in your pickup and improving on them to provide an advanced level of safety. Your traditional rearview mirror still works as normal, but it also can be easily switched to a camera view instead of the regular mirror. The camera provides a wider view and one that’s less obstructed, delivering a clear, crisp look at what’s behind your truck.
