In 2011, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) set new standards for safety ratings and new crash tests. Until now, no pickup truck has achieved a 5-star safety rating under the new system. The 2014 GMC Sierra and Chevrolet Silverado are the first pickup trucks to achieve this highest possible Overall Vehicle Score.
The 2014 Sierra achieved this rating through many innovative safety features. The Sierra is available with a Safety Alert Seat that actually vibrates the seat to warn the driver of a potential collision, which is detected by forward collision alert technology and a Lane Departure Warning.
The Sierra also features innovative towing technology. The trailer-sway control feature works with the traction control to help the driver bring the trailer back under control.
The 2014 Sierra and Silverado have set the standard higher for pickup truck safety. Come to Watters Autoland to test drive one of our 2014 GMC Sierras soon!
