“Finally, GM is no longer behind the curve when it comes to active safety features, as per the newfound equipment in the 2020 Chevrolet Equinox. Active safety technology is becoming increasingly important to consumers, and certainly more of an expectation for newer vehicles,” reports GM Authority writer Jonathan Lopez.

Automatic Emergency Braking

This tech is designed to help you avoid a collision or at least minimize the impact by activating the brakes automatically.

Forward Collision Alert

This system monitors the vehicle in front of you, and warns you when you’re about to hit that vehicle. Three colored indicators, running from green to amber to red, will warn you of the danger.

Following Distance Indicator

This tech will remind you to not tailgate by monitoring your distance between you and the vehicle in front of you.

Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning

Lane Keep Assist offers automatic steering support if it senses you leaving your lane and is complemented by the alerts from the Lane Departure Warning system.

Forward Automatic Braking

When your car is in the Forward/Drive gear, and the system senses an imminent frontal collision, it will activate the brakes automatically to help mitigate or avoid the accident.

IntelliBeam headlamps

In the presence of darkness and with the absence of traffic, this system will automatically switch on the Equinox’s high-beam headlamps.
