The safety features of the brand-new 2021 Chevrolet Suburban
You can expect nothing but the best from the 2021 Chevrolet Suburban. And it will not fail you.
With a 5.3-liter V8 standard engine that’s capable of producing 355 horsepower, the Suburban is an unapologetically powerful beast and Chevrolet made it a point to give this latest rendition of the legendary nameplate all the advantages imaginable in the fight for the full-sized SUV crown.
And one of the most important aspects in the eyes of prospective SUV buyers is safety. Let’s see how does the 2021 Suburban fare in that regard.
Standard safety features
If you’re anything like us, you want your car to come with as many standard safety features as possible. And the 2021 Suburban has one of the most complete standard safety lists on the market that includes some of the most coveted active safety tech out there.
All Suburban models are fitted with perks such as Front Pedestrian Braking, an active safety feature that automatically hits the brakes when it detects an imminent collision with a pedestrian that the driver failed to address.
The same goes for the Automatic Emergency Braking, a system that uses sensors, radar, and cameras to detect imminent crashes and then tries to avoid them by applying the brakes if the driver hasn’t done so in time. It only works on low speeds, however, but for speeds above 50 mph you can count on the Forward Collision Alert and the Following Distance Indicator, both meant to increase the driver’s awareness on the open road.
Speaking of the open road, another safety feature on the 2021 Suburban is the IntelliBeam Auto High Beams and the OnStar Safety and Security connected services that can send help to your location in the event of a crash.
Also standard are the Rear Seat Reminder, and the Rear Park Assist.
Available safety features
On top of the plethora of standard safety tech, the 2021 Suburban can be fitted with a number of other available features. Most come standard on the Premier and High Country top trims but you can pick and choose them on lower trims as well for a price premium.
The list of optional safety features debuts with Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert and the Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning. The former is meant to help you avoid collisions while changing lanes by making you aware of any vehicle driving in the lane you’re trying to cross that you might have missed, while the latter is an active safety feature that will gently steer the car for you to keep you from veering out of your lane unintentionally.
Other great available safety features on the 2021 Suburban are the Adaptive Cruise Control, the Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, an HD Surround Vision Camera, and the Safety Alert Seat.
