The new Silverado 1500 looks right at home whether you’re on a road trip, a job site, or a fancy night out in Flint, Michigan. Its well-proportioned front end is eye-catching, and the back features Chevrolet’s Multi-Flex Tailgate, which functions to make it easier to load, unload, and access the cargo bed.

Safety Features

Chevrolet offers a range of driver assistance features that help make the new Silverado 1500 a safe ride for passengers and drivers alike. These features include:

Trailer Sway Control (TSC)

Trailer sway refers to the unintended side-to-side motion of a trailer while towing. If your truck is towing a trailer and the TSC technology detects that sway is increasing, your truck’s brakes are selectively applied at each wheel in order to reduce excessive trailer sway.

Blind-Spot Monitoring

A blind-spot monitoring system uses sensors that are placed strategically around the truck to detect vehicles hiding in your blind spot. Hence, when you change lanes, the system alerts you if it’s safe to do so. This safety feature can save you from experiencing a collision on the road. Not only does it keep you and your passengers safe, but it also provides you with peace of mind every time you get behind the wheel.

Automatic Emergency Braking

This safety system uses cameras and sensors to identify threatening situations. It can identify a possible collision and respond by activating the brakes automatically to slow the truck prior to impact or bring it to a stop to prevent a collision.

Forward Collision Alert

Forward collision alert activates if you’re about to crash into a vehicle you’re following, whether that vehicle is moving or has come to a stop. It also lets you know if you’re following a vehicle ahead of you too closely (known as the tailgating alert).

Available Super Cruise for Hands-Free Driving

Super cruise allows you to operate the truck hands-free. This technology works with adaptive cruise control, which automatically adjusts the truck’s speed to maintain a safe distance from vehicles ahead.

Lane Keep Assist

Lane keep assist is an advanced safety technology that alerts you when you begin to drift out of your lane without using your turn signal. The technology is often paired with lane departure warnings and uses your truck’s camera system to keep tabs on the lanes of the road you travel. It senses when you drift to the right or left.
