Chevy Protecting First Responders with Safer Police Tahoe
The announcement of the new Chevy Tahoe Police Pursuit Vehicle now allows Police and first responders a safer option! The newest version of this SUV includes new technology specially made to help public servants avoid crashed and lower any chance of injury. “We want to protect our protectors and help them get home safely at the end of every shift,” according to GM VP Ed Peper. “The safety technologies we are introducing on the Tahoe PPV may serve as a second set of eyes.” Listed below are some of the possible packages available:
Safety Alert Driver Seat: Instead of audible sounds and warnings you now have the option of seat vibrations.
Lane Keep Assist: If the vehicle starts to drift slightly out of it’s lane and doesn’t have the turning signals on, it will gently guide the vehicle back to the original lane.
Forward Collision Alert: This system determines the speed of the vehicle along with other objects in the path and determines if it’s a possible dangerous situation by sending the driver a series of beeps and vibrations to the seat.
Low Speed Forward Automatic Braking: automatically senses a collision and applies the brakes to possibly avoid a crash.
Power Adjustable Pedals: Helps drivers find the best driving position for them with the 10-way power seat.
“When they’re on road patrol, police officers are constantly multitasking,” said retired Michigan police chief Theodore Quisenberry. “Now when officers are scanning their surroundings, so is their vehicle. That will help them stay safe.”
