2017 Chevrolet Suburban Safety

The 2017 Chevrolet Suburban is more than just a large SUV designed to haul big, bulky cargo. The big SUV is engineered to keep cabin occupants and those on the outside safer as well thanks to advanced features, state-of-the-art materials, and innovative new systems that make it a critical favorite and a vehicle Edmunds calls “hard to beat.” Explore safety capabilities here, then drop by Tom Gill Chevrolet and see how easy it is to fit a Suburban into your Florence or Covington, KY commute.

Safety Features

The full-sized Chevrolet Suburban is loaded with the latest in advanced safety features, making it easy for drivers to protect the ones they care for:


OnStar offers more than concierge service. When properly equipped, drivers can use the system to call for help in the event of an emergency or, if an accident occurs and they are unable to connect with an operator, the system can contact emergency services and send them to the vehicle’s location.

Teen Driver

Teen Driver technology helps new drivers learn good habits by monitoring speed, audio, seatbelt usage, and ensures that drivers assist technologies are turned on and in use while driving. The system then provides parents with a report showing them areas for improvement and providing a platform for discussion and learning.

Rearview Camera

Maneuvering the large SUV in tight city spaces or connecting to trailers can be a challenge but the rearview camera makes it easy, providing a clear view of the area behind the vehicle and when used with optional parking assist features, helps to prevent backing accidents, making the road safer for everyone.

Advanced Airbags

The Suburban is equipped with a suite of advanced airbags, including head curtain side-impact airbags, frontal, and side impact airbags to reduce the risk of serious injury to cabin occupants in the event of an accident – even a rollover situation.The addition of the occupant sensing system prevents the airbag from deploying if it detects a child or small passenger in the front seat.

Safety Design

The Suburban’s attention to safety goes well beyond the tech used to keep cabin occupants connected. The big SUV is designed from the ground up for better control starting with the high-strength steel safety cage that surrounds the cabin, providing a layer of protection against collisions. Strategically placed front and rear crumple zones help to absorb the force of impact and protect drivers from the trauma of a sudden stop caused by the collision with another heavy object. Chevy’s innovative StabiliTrak system with traction control applies additional power or braking force to the wheels when the system senses the vehicle losing traction. This system, combined with standard 4-wheel anti-lock disc brakes ensures the driver remains in control, even when the road gets bad. 

Chevrolet has also included advanced driver-assist equipment, such as low-speed forward automatic braking which can help to reduce the severity of a collision if it detects an imminent crash by applying the brakes even if the driver fails to react in time. Other features, including lane keeping assist, side blind zone alert with lane change alert, rear park assist, and rear cross traffic alert use sensors to monitor the area surrounding the vehicle, providing audible and visual alerts that allow drivers to correct course and avoid incidents. It’s little wonder why, with all it has to offer, the 2017 Chevy Suburban is such a popular choice for those who want to finance a high-quality SUV.
