GMC Terrain Safety Rating Protects Columbia SC Drivers

GMC Terrain with airbags deployed for Columbia SC

GMC Terrain offers Columbia, SC drivers six airbags, including both side impact and side curtain airbags.

The GMC Terrain offers Columbia, South Carolina drivers a comprehensive system of protection to give you help when you need it most. It’s engineered to assist you before a crash, with advanced chassis control technology, during a crash, when every second counts, and thanks to OnStar, after a crash, even if you can’t ask for help yourself. To reduce the risk of injury, Terrain is equipped with six air bags: two front dual-stage air bags and two side-impact air bags for the driver and front-seat passenger, and head curtain side-impact air bags with rollover protection for passengers in all outboard seating positions. The front passenger air bags feature a Passenger Sensing System. The system uses a sensor within the front passenger seat to detect the weight of an occupant. Under a certain weight, the system automatically turns off the air bag. These systems combine to give Terrain a five-star side impact crash test rating under the NHTSA’s New Car Assessment Program.

To help preserve the space around you and your fellow occupants during a crash, Terrain’s safety cage has been engineered to absorb and channel crash energy. Crush zones at the front and rear of terrain are designed to collapse in a controlled manner on impact, allowing them to absorb energy and keep the safety cage intact.

To prevent young children from opening the rear doors unexpectedly, all Terrain models include “one-touch” electronic safety door locks and a lockout switch. Simply pushing a button in the center console sends an electronic signal to the rear doors, blocking interior door handle function. The button is backlit in amber when the doors are locked, and turns to red when unlocked to help you determine when the locks are activated.

Every Terrain is equipped with a Rearview Camera System to help you navigate a driveway, parking space or trailer hitch more effectively. As soon as you shift into reverse, a view of what’s behind you is displayed in a portion of the rearview mirror. On select models, when Touch-Screen Navigation is ordered, the camera display is integrated into the NAV screen.

When you need extra traction, available AWD automatically adapts to changing road conditions for improved handling. The system sends the maximum amount of torque specific to each wheel when extra traction is needed, and adjusts as needed to help you maintain control. Thanks to direct-injection engine technology, Terrain features best-in-class AWD highway fuel economy and a best-in-class AWD highway cruising range.  If you find yourself driving north of Columbia often during the winter months, all-wheel drive can quickly become a great option.

The StabiliTrak stability control system helps you stay on the path you are steering in bad weather or on uneven road surfaces. This system senses when your vehicle is not responding to your steering inputs, then adjusts engine speed and braking pressure to any individual wheel to help maintain directional control.

With OnStar, you get the help you need, even if you can’t ask for it. In a crash, your Terrain automatically connects with an OnStar advisor who can call for help, send your GPS location and information about the type of crash to emergency services and can stay on the line until help arrives.
