The GMC Canyon has a variety of available advanced safety and Driver Alert technologies. These proven systems were engineered with your well-being in mind.
Coach your newest driver even when you can’t be there. Teen Driver is an onboard system designed to encourage good driving habits for new drivers. Activated by the driver with a pin-code, Teen Driver mode activates certain safety systems, allows parents to set limitations, and keeps track of driving behaviour to help parents guide their young drivers.
Standard Rear Vision Camera
When your Canyon is in reverse, see a real-time image of the area behind the truck. The rear vision camera may help you see obstacles, passing vehicles, and pedestrians before a collision happens.
CornerStep Rear Bumper
Everyone has a favourite method of climbing in and out of the truck bed. No matter how you go about it, it’s a big step. The CornerStep Rear Bumper is an actual step, unlike the top of a gritty tire or the narrow edge of a slick bumper, it was designed to help you move around with sure-footing.
Driver Alert Technologies
Available new features use cutting edge camera and sensor technologies to detect potential hazards and alert you to imminent danger. Giving you the seconds you may need to help you reduce the severity of a collision or avoid one altogether.
GMC Safety Message
Safety 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. Read the vehicle Owner’s Manual for important feature limitations and information.
