Safety features on the 2021 Chevrolet Suburban
With a 5.3-liter V8 engine that’s capable of producing 355 horsepower as standard, the 2021 Chevrolet Suburban is an absolute beast of an SUV. And that attitude translates into every corner of the Suburban, including its safety features.
If you’re in the market for a full-size, safe, and capable SUV then read this 3-minute article through to see why the Suburban should be high on your shortlist.
Standard safety features
As with all cars, Suburban’s list of standard features is divided between “standard” and “optional”.
Unlike most cars, however, its standard list of safety features is exceptionally long, including many of the highly coveted, high-tech active safety features that have been introduced to cars in the past decade.
First is the Front Pedestrian Braking that through cameras and sensors can detect an imminent pedestrian accident and hit the brakes if the driver fails to do so in time. It's meant to significantly reduce the intensity of the accident or avoid it completely. The same goes for the Automatic Emergency Braking system, also a standard feature, that at low seeds will hit the brakes to try to avoid an imminent crash.
Also included as standard are the Following Distance Indicator, the IntelliBeam Automatic High Beams, great for the open road, and the Forward Collision Alert, a system that comes into play right before the Automatic Emergency Braking does to alert the driver of an impending threat ahead.
And it gets even better as base models on the Suburban are also fitted with Rear Park Assist to help you fit into tight spaces with low visibility, Rear Seat Reminder that will make sure you won’t forget anything in the back seat, and the OnStar and Chevrolet Connected Services that once hooked up could send help your way instantly in the event of a crash.
Optional safety features
As trims go up so does the Suburban's safety features list with additions such as Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning that will make sure you don't veer off your lane unintentionally or Adaptive Cruise Control that lets you preset a distance to keep between your Suburban and the vehicles in front.
Further up and your Suburban will be fitted with the Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, great for coming out of tight parking spaces, an HD Surround Vision Camera, a Safety Alert Seat to boost driver awareness, and the Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert that will keep you from crashing into vehicles as you change lanes.
On top of everything listed above the 2021 Suburban comes with a reliable airbag system and a great chassis.
