GM Boosts Safety on Tahoe PPV

2018 Police Pursuit Vehicle is safer than ever.

Chevrolet is adding new safety features and options to the 2018 Tahoe Police Pursuit Vehicle (PPV), including technologies designed to help reduce potential crash speeds or help avoid a crash altogether.

“We want to protect our protectors and help them get home safely at the end of every shift,” said Ed Peper, U.S. vice president, GM Fleet. “The safety technologies we are introducing on the Tahoe PPV may serve as a second set of eyes.”

A new Enhanced Driver Assist Package is built around five distinct technologies and features:

Low Speed Forward Automatic Braking: This feature, which has never been offered on a pursuit-rated vehicle before, automatically applies the brakes to help reduce a collision’s severity if the vehicle is traveling at a low speed and the system detects that a front-end collision is imminent and the driver has not already applied the brakes.

Forward Collision Alert: This system uses radar and a forward-looking camera to measure the closing speeds between a vehicle and objects in its path. If a driver-adjustable threshold is passed, the system triggers a visual alert and audible beeps or seat pulses, if equipped.

Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning: This feature provides gentle steering wheel turns to help drivers avoid crashes due to unintentionally drifting out of their lanes when they are not actively steering and the turn signals are not activated.

Safety Alert Driver Seat: Gives drivers the option of getting haptic seat-bottom vibration pulses instead of audible crash avoidance alerts.

Power Adjustable Pedals: Combined with the Tahoe PPV’s standard 10-way power driver seat and tilt wheel, power adjustable pedals help drivers of all sizes find their optimal driving position for comfort and control.
