2011 GMC Terrain | Small SUV | StabiliTrak for Vehicle Safety
Bret Dick, Performance Integration Engineer for 10 years, helped develop StabiliTrak on the GMC Terrain Small SUV. StabiliTrak detects when there is loss of control of the vehicle and helps the driver with applying brakes and even cut engine power to guide the driver in the direction they want to go.
StabiliTrak uses a steering angle sensor, yaw sensor, and lateral accelerometer wheel speed sensors, with the hydraulic brake pump to assist the driver in quick situations. This technology helps make the Terrain a safe vehicle and in Bret's words, save lives. For information go to http://www.gmc.com/terrain/features-specs/options.html.
