The Silverado 1500 always puts safety first. This pickup comes with tons of great features to keep you and your passengers better protected. This includes active, passive, and driver assist features, each of which is specially designed and tested by our engineers.  
Protecting You

In the event of an accident, you can rest assured you'll be safe. The Silverado 1500 comes standard with six airbags, as well as a high-strength steel safety cage. Strategic crumple zones also reduce the stress on passengers in the event of a collision. 
Preventing Accidents

There are a range of technologies that can alert you to danger. This includes many features in the Enhanced Driver Alert Package, such as Low-Speed Forward Automatic Braking, Lane Keep Assist, Forward Collision Alert, Safety Alert Driver Seat, and Front and Rear Park Assist. 

Here's a breakdown of some of the driver-assist technologies on the Silverado 1500. 
  • Forward Automatic Braking. Sensors around your vehicle can detect any imminent collisions. If you are too slow to respond, this system can activate the brakes to reduce the damage. 
  • Lane Keep Assist. Using cameras to watch the lines on the road, this system will send you an alert if you start to drift off the road or into another lane without using your blinker. 
  • Forward Collision Alert. Working with Forward Automatic Braking, this system will alert you to avoid any potential danger. 
  • Safety Alert Driver Seat. Sometimes we best respond to tactile alerts. That's why the safety seat will send you a vibration if a warning is activated.  
  • Park Assist. This wide-view camera is mounted on your vehicle to help you maneuver in tight situations. If you frequently parallel park, you'll be grateful for this technology.   
Naturally, these are no substitutes for driver responsibility; nevertheless, these options can work to keep you better protected. 
Responding To An Accident

The Silverado 1500 comes with OnStar Automatic Crash Response. With a trial subscription of three months, which can easily be extended, you can have OnStar contact emergency services if an airbag is deployed. Paired with the available OnStar Basic Plan, this system will give you added peace of mind on the road.
