Dual-stage frontal and side-impact air bags, driver and front passenger and head curtain and seat-mounted side-impact air bags, front and rear outboard seating positions

An array of air bags provides protection for the driver, front passenger and rear passengers in the outboard seating positions. Silverado also includes a Passenger Sensing System that:

  • Detects the presence of a properly seated occupant on the front passenger seat
  • Decides whether the frontal air bag at the front passenger seat should be enabled (able to inflate, if needed)
  • Will turn off the right-front passenger frontal air bag under certain conditions
