Rear Seat Reminder Helps Prevent Child Fatalities

Rear Seat Reminder
Rear Seats Are Now In Check

Life can be hectic, especially when you’re driving the family around and running errands. In order to prevent unnecessary injury or death, GMC has developed the innovative Rear Seat Reminder system. Using a series of sensors and warnings, this system can prevent you from leaving a child unattended in the back seat.

Believe it or not, about half of the children under 14 who die of heatstroke in a vehicle are forgotten, according to GMC. The Rear Seat Reminder works to prevent this by activating whenever a rear door is open and closed within 10 minutes before the vehicle is started (or while the vehicle is running). The next time the car is turned off, you get a warning to check the rear seat.

“General Motors has developed a new technology for the GMC Acadia, the Rear Seat Reminder, to give busy parents an important reminder to check the back seat before leaving the car,” said Kate Carr, president and CEO of Safe Kids Worldwide. “We must always remember that the safest way to protect a child from heatstroke is to never leave a child unattended in a vehicle.”

This feature can’t detect every item or individual in the back seat—it’s simply meant to prevent some incidents. That’s why it’s still important to always check the back seat, especially if you have small children.

New 2017 GMC Acadia Spy Photos Leak Online

 

2017 Buick Acadia
The Looks Good

Fans of the GMC Acadia have just received some good news. Spy photos of the upcoming 2017 GMC Acadia have leaked online, showcasing what the upcoming model will look like under a camouflage tarp.

Despite the secretive covering, these 2017 GMC Acadia spy photos give us a good idea about what the new Acadia will look like. In general, the Acadia appears to be much smaller, while still having plenty of passenger space.

The new Acadia also looks a bit sleeker than its predecessor, with more rounded angles and less boxy edges. And if the Acadia is smaller, you can bet that it will be much lighter and able to boast better fuel efficiency stats.

Hopefully, GMC will release official images soon. Until then, we’ll likely have to wait until 2017 if not 2018 to see this model in its entirety. Keep checking back with Ewing Buick GMC in Plano, TX for the most up-to-date information on the new GMC models.
