FEATURES

BUICK DRIVER CONFIDENCE

Whether you’re navigating city traffic or backing out of a parking spot, these standard, integrated active safety technologies help keep you confidently on the road. Some can even alert you to potential hazards.  

Buick Driver Confidence includes the following innovative safety technology features: Forward Collision Alert, Automatic Emergency Braking, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, Following Distance Indicator, IntelliBeam headlamps and Front Pedestrian Braking.

Safety or driver-assistance features are no substitute for the driver’s responsibility to operate the vehicle in a safe manner. The driver should remain attentive to traffic, surroundings and road conditions at all times. Visibility, weather and road conditions may affect feature performance. Read the vehicle Owner’s Manual for more important feature limitations and information.

FORWARD COLLISION ALERT AND AUTOMATIC EMERGENCY BRAKING

Forward Collision Alert can alert you when a front-end collision is detected to be imminent with a vehicle ahead you are following. Automatic Emergency Braking can help reduce the collision’s severity or avoid the collision by automatically applying hard emergency braking if you have not already, or by enhancing driver hard braking.

LANE KEEP ASSIST WITH LANE DEPARTURE WARNING

This technology can help you avoid crashes due to unintentionally drifting out of your lane by providing gentle steering-wheel turns when the system detects you are drifting out of your lane with no turn signal or steering activity. It can also provide Lane Departure Warning alerts when a lane marker is crossed.

FOLLOWING DISTANCE INDICATOR

This feature can provide you with the following gap time (or headway) to a moving vehicle you are detected to be following to help you know if you are following much too closely.

NEW INTELLIBEAM HEADLAMPS

To enhance nighttime visibility, IntelliBeam automatically turns on the headlamps’ high beams when sensors detect appropriate ambient light conditions and then turns the high beams off as conditions change, such as when another vehicle is approaching.

FRONT PEDESTRIAN BRAKING

Front Pedestrian Braking can alert you when a collision is detected to be imminent with a pedestrian directly ahead at speeds below 50 mph. It can also help reduce the collision’s severity or avoid the collision by automatically applying hard emergency braking if you have not already, or by enhancing driver hard braking. Performance is limited at night.
