GMC Acadia Safety and Security in Columbia SC

Many safety systems keep the GMC Acadia safe in all road and weather conditions.

Many safety systems keep the GMC Acadia safe in all road and weather conditions.

The 2011 GMC Acadia offers plenty of safety and security features for Columbia drivers.  A suite of physical and technological systems are designed to protect GMC Acadia occupants before, during, and after an accident to provide the peace of mind that Columbia drivers demand in their vehicles.  (And with Malfunction Junction as it is, we don’t blame them at all!)

GMC Acadia Ride and Handling

Acadia has a low center of gravity and a long and wide footprint for a secure stance. Using a MacPherson-strut front and a linked H-arm rear suspension system, Acadia is confident, responsive and precise no matter the condition of the road you’re on. The rear suspension mounts on an isolated crossmember subframe, which helps reduce cabin noise and makes Acadia an even more popular option for Columbia shoppers.

Acadia features a StabiliTrak electronic stability control system that can sense vehicle speed, brake pressure, lateral acceleration, turning and even the position of your steering wheel to help you stay on track. The system feeds this data into an onboard computer, then adjusts engine speed and brake pressure to each of the wheels to improve safety, stability and control in most driving conditions.

GMC Acadia Safety Features

The Tire Pressure Monitoring System is one of many tools designed to measure and monitor Acadia’s mechanical systems. It’s advanced technology that keeps track of tire pressure and alerts you to low pressure through the Driver Information Center— indicating exactly which tire is low.  (It does not, however, monitor the spare tire, which you should check monthly along with a visual inspection of your Acadia’s tires.)

To reduce the risk of injury, Acadia is equipped with six air bags: two front dual-stage air bags and two side-impact air bags for the driver and front-seat passenger, and head curtain side air bags with rollover protection for passengers in outboard seating positions. The front passenger air bag features a Passenger Sensing System. The system uses a sensor within the front passenger seat to detect the weight of an occupant. Under a certain weight, the system automatically turns off the air bag.  (As always, we emphasize that all passengers should wear seat belts.)

To help preserve occupant space during a crash, Acadia’s safety cage is engineered to absorb and channel crash energy. Crush zones at the front and rear of Acadia are designed to collapse on impact, allowing them to absorb energy and help keep the safety cage intact.

With OnStar, you are able to get the help you need, even if you can’t ask for it. In a crash, OnStar can call for help automatically, send your location using GPS to emergency services and can even stay on the line until help arrives. A six-month trial of OnStar is standard on all GMC Acadia models. For more details, visit
