2018 Chevrolet Equinox Safety

2017 Chevrolet Equinox

The 2018 Chevrolet Equinox safety features offer Troy and Dayton, OH drivers access to advanced engineering design, next-generation technology, and the confidence to tackle whatever the road has in store. Even the base LS trim provides Dave Kelly drivers with access to an impressive suite of amenities that includes:

  • Advanced Airbags System
  • Dual-Mode Horn
  • LATCH Child Seats System
  • Rear Vision Camera
  • Child Safety Locks
  • Team Driver System
  • Tire Pressure Monitoring

But those features are only the beginning. Shoppers also have access to innovative systems that allow them to take the safety of their daily drive to the next level.

Safety Features

In addition to the standard safety features that every Chevrolet Equinox driver enjoys, additional amenities help to guide and protect occupants no matter where the road leads:

  • Following Distance Indicator: Monitors the vehicle in front of Equinox and alerts the driver if they’re following too closely.
  • Forward Collision Alert: Drivers receive an audible and visual alert if the vehicle senses an impending crash, providing precious time to react.
  • Lane Change Alert: Combined with Side Blind Zone Alert, this system uses sensors to the side of the vehicle to provide audio and visual alerts if it senses an approaching vehicle or if the driver attempts to change lanes without signaling.
  • Lane Keep Assist: Bundled with Lane Departure Warning, the system can alert drivers if they veer out of their intended lane of travel and gently guides the vehicle back on to its original path.
  • Low-Speed Forward Automatic Braking: If the vehicle senses an impending collision or if the driver fails to react in time, the Equinox can automatically apply the brakes to minimize damage.

Safety Design

Not only does the Equinox offer drivers access to advanced technology that makes it easier to avoid accidents, but the vehicle is engineered to survive impacts better as well, thanks to design features that include:

  • High-Strength Steel Safety Cage
  • Front and Rear Crumple Zones
  • Safety Alert Seat
  • StabiliTrak Stability Control System
  • Four-Wheel Antilock Brakes
  • Electronic Parking Brake
  • All-Wheel-Drive System

These features combine to make the Chevrolet Equinox one of the safest SUVs on the road, but sometimes accidents happen. In that case, the standard OnStar system with available GPS navigation can automatically notify emergency services even when you can’t.
