Vehicle Details: 2019 GMC Sierra Safety
The all-new 2019 GMC Sierra 1500 goes big in terms of style and substance. While capability and luxury are two of its biggest facets, the new Sierra works harder and smarter to keep you and your passengers safe. With several cutting-edge driver-assist safety technologies available, the 2019 GMC Sierra 1500 makes you feel more confident in more ways than one.
Looking out ahead
Your path is bright and clear at night with available IntelliBeam headlamps. To better illuminate the road ahead of you, IntelliBeam headlamps automatically turn on the high beams when it’s dark out, and they work to prevent accidentally blinding drivers in other vehicles by switching to low beams when oncoming headlamps or taillights are detected.
If a front-end crash seems imminent, the available Forward Collision Alert system alerts you to apply the brakes. If you are unable to do so in time, available Low Speed Forward Automatic Braking helps you come to a stop and mitigate or avoid a collision. The available Following Distance Indicator notifies you if you are following a vehicle too closely and gives you a recommended following distance. As for city driving, available Front Pedestrian Braking detects when a person is walking in the path of your vehicle and automatically applies the brakes to avoid a collision.
Keeping an eye on your blind spot
Available Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert alerts you when a vehicle is in your blind spot by illuminating an indicator on your driver- and passenger-side mirrors. This allows you to change lanes more confidently and without fear of a vehicle hiding where you might not be able to see it clearly. If you drift out of your lane, available Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning alerts you and offers corrective steering to gently reposition you in between the painted lines.
Having your back
The 2019 GMC Sierra 1500 is available with an HD Rear Vision Camera, which displays a crystal-clear view of the area behind your truck. This enables you to back up without having to worry about unseen hazards, and its gridlines even allow you to parallel park or back into a spot with the utmost certainty. For situations where you’re backing out in a busy parking lot, available Rear Cross Traffic Alert lets you know when another vehicle is approaching from either side so that you can avoid a costly collision.
With features like the world’s first six-function MultiPro™ Tailgate and a class-leading, first-of-its-kind CarbonPro™ carbon-fiber truck bed, there’s no doubt that the 2019 GMC Sierra 1500 is ready to work. With plenty of innovative safety features, you can also rest assured that your Sierra 1500 is looking out for you every mile of the way.
