Chevy Tahoe Police Pursuit Vehicle Adds Safety Features
General Motors has announced a series of new safety features for its updated 2018 Chevy Tahoe Police Pursuit Vehicle and they appear to significantly enhance officer safety.
Police departments ordering the 2018 Tahoe PPV will now be able to choose the Enhanced Driver Assist package. It comes with low-speed forward automatic braking, forward collision alert, and active lane control with lane departure warning. That means the Tahoe is actively working to avoid (or reduce the speed of) forward collisions. It also works to keep itself in its lane and alert the officer should he or she start to drift a bit. Additional safety tech is offered in the driver’s seat, which vibrates in the direction of an unseen nearby object that could pose a danger. The package also comes with power adjustable pedals.
This is good news to law enforcement across the country that continue to be plagued with officers deaths and injuries each year related to driving.
