GMC PRO SAFETY PLUS

Acadia’s available advanced technology and safety features help you to stay connected, informed and aware of surrounding vehicles as you confidently navigate the open road.

AUTOMATIC EMERGENCY BRAKING

When operating below 80 km/h, this available feature can alert you when a front-end collision is detected to be imminent with a vehicle ahead that you are following. It also can potentially help reduce the collision’s severity or avoid the collision by automatically applying hard emergency braking if you have not already, or by enhancing driver hard braking.

FRONT PEDESTRIAN BRAKING

This available feature alerts drivers when an imminent collision is detected with a pedestrian directly ahead (while driving below 80 km/h). It can also potentially help reduce the collision’s severity or avoid the collision by automatically applying hard emergency braking if you have not already, or by enhancing driver hard braking. Performance is limited at night.

INTELLIBEAM® ─ AUTO HIGH BEAMS

When driving conditions are dark, the available IntelliBeam®─ Auto High Beams automatically turn on the vehicle’s high beams. When oncoming headlamps or taillights are detected, IntelliBeam® switches back to low beams.

FRONT AND REAR PARK ASSIST

Available Front and Rear Park Assist can provide distance alerts at low speeds to nearby detected objects to help you park and avoid objects.

LANE KEEP ASSIST WITH LANE DEPARTURE WARNING

This available feature helps you avoid crashes due to unintentionally drifting out of your lane by providing gentle steering wheel turns when the system detects you are drifting out of your lane with no turn signal or steering activity. It can also provide Lane Departure Warning alerts when a lane marker is crossed.

FOLLOWING DISTANCE INDICATOR

This available feature provides drivers with the following gap time (or headway) to a moving vehicle you are detected to be following to help you know if you are following much too closely.

FORWARD COLLISION ALERT

This available feature alerts you when it detects a front-end collision is imminent
with a vehicle ahead that you are following. The system also can alert you if you are following a detected vehicle much too closely.

ADVANCED SAFETY TECHNOLOGIES

AVAILABLE ADAPTIVE CRUISE CONTROL

The available Adaptive Cruise Control enhances regular Cruise Control by using sensors including radar technology to automatically adapt the vehicle speed to maintain your selected following gap time between your vehicle and any vehicles detected ahead while you steer, reducing the need for you to frequently brake and accelerate.  

LANE CHANGE ALERT WITH SIDE BLIND ZONE ALERT

Helps you avoid lane-change crashes by providing side-mirror alerts when a moving vehicle is detected rapidly approaching a side blind zone or in a side blind zone.

REAR CROSS TRAFFIC ALERT

Alerts you to detected left or right cross traffic behind you when in Reverse.

REAR PARK ASSIST

The available Rear Park Assist can provide distance alerts to nearby detected objects behind the vehicle to help you park and avoid them when in Reverse at low speeds.
