ADVANCED SAFETY TECHNOLOGIES With innovation as a foundation, Sierra offers advanced safety technologies and driver-centric alerts.

GMC Sierra SLE/SLT HD Rear Vision Camera
Available HD Rear Vision Camera

When in Reverse, the driver can view the scene directly behind the vehicle on the infotainment screen, to help the driver park and avoid nearby objects during low-speed maneuvering.

GMC Sierra SLE/SLT Headlamps
Available IntelliBeam Headlamps

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

GMC Sierra SLE/SLT Lane Change Alert
Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert

Provides side-mirror alerts to drivers when a detected vehicle is moving in, or rapidly approaching, their side blind zone during a lane-change maneuver.

GMC Sierra SLE/SLT Forward Collision Alert
Available Forward Collision Alert

If the system detects that a front-end collision situation is imminent while following a detected vehicle, the system can alert the ​driver to a potential collision.It also can alert the driver if the driver is following a detected vehicle much too closely.

GMC Sierra SLE/SLT Lane Keep Assist
Available Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning

Provides gentle steering wheel turns (and, if necessary, Lane Departure Warning alerts), to help drivers avoid collisions due to unintentionally drifting out of their lane when they are not actively steering and their turn signal is not activated.

GMC Sierra SLE/SLT Distance Indicator
Available Following Distance Indicator

This system can provide drivers with the following (or headway) time to a moving vehicle detected in front of the vehicle to help them know if they are following too closely.

GMC Sierra SLE/SLT Front Pedestrian Braking
Available Front Pedestrian Braking

If the system detects that a pedestrian is directly ahead and a collision is imminent, and the driver has not already applied the brakes, the system can alert the driver and may even automatically apply the brakes to help the driver avoid or reduce the harm caused by the collision. Performance is limited at night.

Rear Cross Traffic Alert

When in Reverse, this feature can provide alerts to help drivers avoid approaching detected left or right cross traffic (such as when backing out of a crowded parking space or driveway with side obstructions)

GMC Sierra SLE/SLT Forward Automatic Braking
Available Low Speed Forward Automatic Braking

If Sierra is traveling at a low speed and the system detects that a front-end collision situation is imminent while following a detected vehicle and the driver has not already applied the brakes, the system can automatically apply the brakes to help reduce the collision’s severity. The system may even help avoid the collision at very low speeds.

GMC Sierra SLE/SLT Safety Alert Seat
Available Safety Alert Seat

The GM-patented Safety Alert Seat provides the driver the option to choose seat-bottom vibration pulses instead of audible crash-avoidance alerts.

* Safety features are no substitute for the driver’s responsibility to operate the vehicle in a safe manner. The driver should remain attentive to traffic, surroundings and road conditions at all times. Read the Owner’s Manual for more important safety information.

* Always use safety belts and the correct child restraint for your child’s age and size, even with air bags. Even in vehicles equipped with the Passenger Sensing System, children are safer when properly secured in a rear seat in the appropriate infant, child or booster seat. Never place a rear-facing infant restraint in the front seat of any vehicle equipped with an active frontal air bag. See the Owner’s Manual
