GMC Safety Features in Youngstown, OH

Explore All the Safety Features Available on a GMC

There’s nothing more important than being safe when you’re out on the road, and GMC knows it. In addition to standard features found on many new vehicles on the road, there are also GMC safety features in Youngstown, OH, that perfectly combine technology and safety to keep you an informed driver. With both built-in protection features and a large selection of safety alert technologies, you can see all the ways that GMC has your safety in mind when you visit Sweeney GMC.

Staying protected on the road when you’re driving a new GMC truck, crossover, SUV, or van is taken care of with a bevy of standard safety features. Dual-stage frontal airbags1, seat-mounted side impact airbags1, and head curtain side impact airbags2 are all in place to keep you and any passengers safe in the event of a collision. Thanks to the reinforced-steel safety cage and crush zones, crash forces are diverted away from the cabin to keep occupants safe.

The antilock braking system (ABS) comes standard on all GMC models and pulses the brakes to keep them from locking up, allowing for more maneuverability. Available on the GMC Yukon and Sierra is Intelligent Brake Assist, which senses when you hit the brakes in an emergency situation and will give you the most braking force. For those GMC’s equipped with the DURAMAX® diesel engine, Diesel Exhaust Brake is designed to give you ‘negative torque’ and help slow you down, which is helpful when driving on long grades.

When it comes to GMC safety features in Youngstown, OH, the combination of technology and safety is where you start to see some true innovation. Available features like Forward Collision Alert and Lane Departure Warning use digital imaging to let you know if you’re coming up on a vehicle to quickly or start to drift from your lane while driving. Additional safety features on GMC models like the Acadia, Canyon, Savana, Sierra, Terrain, and Yukon include the Rear-Vision Camera that allows you to clearly see behind your vehicle. Side Blind Zone Alert & Rear Cross-Traffic Alert notifies you to approaching traffic, no matter if you’re on the road or trying to get out of a parking spot. Some models, like the Yukon Denali, have the available Safety Alert Seat that vibrates when the above safety features are activated.

If that isn’t enough, GMC continues the marriage of safety and technology with a trial subscription to OnStar®3. This includes a suite of helpful safety features like Automatic Crash Response, Turn-By-Turn Navigation, Roadside Assistance, and a link to emergency services if you need them. The OnStar® Basic Plan4 is yet another helpful tool, offering you OnStar® Vehicle Diagnostics, Dealer Maintenance Notification, and RemoteLink® Key Fob Services5 access.
