Emergency Response

In case a collision does occur, the Silverado also comes with the OnStar emergency telematics system. This includes automatic crash notification, emergency roadside assistance, a stolen vehicle locater, and even a remote door unlock feature.

Advanced Safety Tech

On top of all that, the Chevy Silverado 1500 is also offered with a variety of advanced safety features that were only recently unavailable in the full-size pickup segment at large. Highlights include:

  • Low-Speed Forward Automatic Braking: This system uses advanced sensors to detect if your vehicle is quickly approaching an object in front of it. If you fail to apply the brakes in time, this system is able to automatically apply the brakes to mitigate the chances of a collision.
  • Forward Collision Alert: Before the Forward Automatic Braking feature is engaged, the system will warn you that there is an imminent collision to give you the opportunity to apply the brakes.
  • Lane Keep Assist: Particularly when you’re driving a full-size pickup truck, it can be easy to have trouble staying in the lines from time to time. Lane Keep Assist is able to read whether you’re in the center of your lane and make slight adjustments to keep you there.
  • Front and Rear Park Assist: A full-size pickup can be tough to maneuver. The Front Park Assist and Rear Park Assist features are able to automatically maneuver your truck into a difficult parking spot. On top of that, you’ll get a standard rearview camera that gives you a better view of the road behind you.
