GMC Pro Safety: Improving Your Safety 

GMC Pro Safety is a suite of cutting-edge technologies available for Terrain, Acadia, Yukon, and Yukon XL models. It’s all about helping you stay one step ahead of potential dangers on the road. Here’s what you can expect from GMC Pro Safety: 

Forward Collision Alert: This feature warns you of potential front-end collisions, helping you take quick action to avoid accidents. It can even alert you if you’re following a vehicle too closely. 

Automatic Emergency Braking: Working hand-in-hand with Forward Collision Alert, this system helps you avoid or reduce the severity of front-end collisions with detected vehicles. It’s like an extra set of eyes on the road, automatically applying the brakes if needed. 

Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning: This technology keeps you in your lane by gently alerting you when you drift out of lane lines. It even provides additional warnings if necessary. 

Following Distance Indicator: This nifty feature displays the gap time in seconds between your vehicle and the one in front. It’s a great aid for maintaining a safe following distance. 

Front Pedestrian Braking: Designed to prevent or lessen the impact of front-end collisions with pedestrians, this system provides alerts and can automatically apply emergency braking. 

IntelliBeam®: Say goodbye to manually switching between high and low beams. IntelliBeam® does it automatically based on surrounding traffic conditions. 

GMC Pro Safety Plus: Going the Extra Mile 

GMC Pro Safety Plus includes all the features from GMC Pro Safety, but it doesn’t stop there. You also get: 

Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert: This feature provides visual alerts in your side mirrors when a vehicle quickly approaches or lurks in your blind spot, helping you make safer lane changes. 

Rear Cross Traffic Alert: When you’re in reverse, it’s your guardian warning you of cross traffic behind your vehicle. 

Rear Park Assist: This system offers distance alerts for objects behind your vehicle, making parking and avoiding collisions a breeze. 

Enhanced Views for Added Confidence 

GMC understands that visibility is crucial for safe driving. That’s why many GMC models offer up to a class-leading 9 camera views, including High-Definition Rear Vision, High-Definition Surround Vision, and Hitch Guidance with Hitch View. These views help you easily navigate everything from tight parking spots to hitching up a trailer. 

Never Forget a Thing with Rear Seat Reminder 

GMC cares about your family’s safety. The Rear Seat Reminder helps you remember to check the back seat before leaving your vehicle. It’s standard on various 2021 GMC models like Acadia, Terrain, Yukon, Yukon XL, Sierra 1500, and Sierra Heavy Duty. While it doesn’t detect people or objects in the rear seat, it monitors the rear doors and activates if they’re opened and closed within 10 minutes before the vehicle is started.

Empower Your Teen with Teen Driver 

GMC’s Teen Driver technology helps reinforce safe driving habits for your young drivers. By programming the equipped vehicle key fob, you activate features like muting the audio system when seat belts are unfastened, setting speed warnings, and more. It’s a valuable tool to help your teen develop good driving habits.
