Detroit - Arab Today

When the all-new 2015 GMC Canyon launches this fall, it will not only bring a full payload of midsize truck segment-leading capabilities, but segment safety firsts including a patent-pending child safety feature. Smaller jump seats found in extended cab midsize trucks may have too little lower seat cushion length to meet many child restraint manufacturer’s recommendation to have at least 80 percent of the child restraint base fit on the seat cushion. General Motors’ engineers have designed a patent-pending solution for the 2015 Canyon extended cab to help keep kids in child restraints safer in a collision. Using the rear jump seat headrest on the passenger side of the extended-cab Canyon, the jump seat cushion can be extended by removing the head rest and inserting it horizontally into the seat base. This helps the extended-cab Canyon satisfy the seat base recommendation of most child restraint manufacturers. “It’s an elegant solution that makes efficient use of the limited space in the rear seat in this type of vehicle, by allowing us to adapt the seat cushion length for child restraint installation,” said Eduardo Bugelli, safety performance team lead. “The additional seat cushion length provides more support to the child restraint, which helps to reduce the rotation and the risk of injury in a crash.” In addition to this patent-pending design, the all-new Canyon will be the first midsize truck to offer Forward Collision Alert and Lane Departure Warning technology as part of the available Driver Alert Package. Forward collision alert technology helps prevent frontal crashes by alerting the driver when the truck is closing in on a vehicle ahead too quickly, giving the driver additional time to react and avoid a crash. Lane Departure Warning technology can alert the driver when the truck drifts over a lane line when traveling at least 35 mph. In a collision, the Canyon’s all-new cab structure is made from over 70 percent high-strength steel to better protect its occupants. It also comes standard with six air bags, including head curtain side air bags that can also reduce the risk of occupant ejection. Safety and convenience technology continues with a standard rear vision camera and available next-generation IntelliLink infotainment system. IntelliLink can seamlessly integrate the capability of a smartphone into the vehicle so that hand-held phones may be safely stowed while driving. Features such as smartphone voice recognition pass through, including text message support and Siri Eyes Free, enable the driver to be alerted to new text messages and have them read aloud and respond, depending on the functionality of the smartphone). Siri Eyes Free enables iPhone 4S and iPhone 5 users to access Siri via the steering wheel controls and check calendar entries, have text messages read and respond to them, place calls or call up music. Android phone users can also use the steering wheel controls to access their phone’s voice recognition features. The Canyon will be assembled at GM’s Wentzville, Mo., assembly plant. GMC will continue to work on and develop the Canyon until the start of production in fall 2014. Source: GM
