Chevy Silverado 1500 SafetyThe 2021 Chevy Silverado 1500 is armed with six airbags around your interior to help you stay protected in the event of a collision.

However, the goal is always to stay out of harm’s way, so this truck is available with the following advanced safety systems:

  • Automatic Emergency Braking
  • Front and Rear Park Assist
  • Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning
  • Rear Cross Traffic Alert

These systems are designed to detect potential collisions and nearby obstacles, helping you make the necessary corrections to stay protected wherever the road takes you. The Chevy Silverado 1500 also has an available Side Blind Zone Alert feature on the mirrors that’ll light up if there is a vehicle in one of your blind spots.

In addition to the available Adaptive Cruise Control system, you can consistently keep a safe distance between you and the vehicle in front of you with the optional Following Distance Indicator, as it displays the following distance in seconds.

Every so often, your tires can lose air for a variety of reasons, so you’ll need to refill them when the vehicle alerts you. The standard Tire Pressure Monitoring System can monitor each tire and show you which one is low.

The big advantage to this system is that it comes with Tire Fill Alert, which will activate your turn signals or horn when your tires are filled to the correct PSI. This means you won’t have to use a tire pressure gauge to determine how much air you’ll have to put in.

You can even keep up with the air pressure in your trailer’s tires with the available Trailer Tire Pressure and Temperature Sensors. At any time, you can view the tire pressure of up to six tires and measure the temperature inside your trailer.
