Forward Thinking at GMC
Differing from other brands in the General Motors family, GMC developed a new way for itself. Its precision engineering gives a fullest play in its safety innovations. Adaptive cruise control technology GMC adopted enhances regular Cruise Control to allow the vehicle to automatically follow a detected vehicle ahead at the driver-selected following gap while the driver steers, reducing the need for the driver to frequently brake and accelerate, which not only reduce the possibility of fatal accidents but also make it easier in driving. Forward collision alert system could detect if a front-end collision situation is imminent and alert driver if he is following a detected vehicle much too closely and the low speed forward automatic braking is also helpful in avoiding the collision at very low speed. Apart from these safety equipment, GMC also adopted some advanced technology to keep occupants comfortable and connected while on the go. For example, the GMC IntelliLink information system to control audio, navigation, and Bluetooth phone systems, myGMC app, 4G connection and built-in Wi-Fi hotspot and so on.
