GM ADDS NEW SAFETY TECHNOLOGY FOR ELDERLY DRIVERS

    impala interior.jpg

Some automakers have safety initiatives that only target young drivers such as those who just barely started driving. But with that, there is a whole, large demographic that is being ignored: the elderly.

General Motors (Chevrolet's parent company), however, is offering active safety technologies, even more convenient OnStar services access and more roomy cabins just to better serve aging drivers.

"The safety of all our customers is our utmost concern," says Gay Kent, director, GM global vehicle safety. "The great thing about many of our active safety technologies is that some, like the vibrating haptic seat, provide intuitive, non-visual cues to avoid startling the driver and prevent information overload or confusion."1

Examples of specific technologies that GM has implemented in its strategy include: a rearview back-up camera, front par assist, rear park assist, side blind zone indicators, lane departure warning system, collision alert systems, front automatic braking, rear cross traffic alert and more.

If you'd like to learn more about the many safety options of the new Chevrolet lineup, then we at Landers McLarty Chevrolet invite you to visit our conveniently-located Huntsville, AL dealership, any time.

CHEVROLET TO STREAM BEATS MUSIC INTO NEW LINEUP

Chevrolet has always been known for being an innovative automaker. And now, Chevy is taking its modern, next-generation to a whole new level with the integration of an all-new Beats Music streaming service into the Chevrolet AppShop. It will be available on select new Chevrolet models before the end of the year.

Beats Music provides listeners with the opportunity to enjoy personalized, tailored playlists created by music experts across a variety of genres. Beats Music promises to offer the right songs at the right time for all listeners: a truly unique experience.

So, how does Beats Music stream through your Chevy vehicle?

It's thanks to the connection provided by the Chevrolet AppShop and the high-speed 4G LTE connectivity and data plans available via OnStar.

"Our customers are looking for choice and we’re giving them a great opportunity to customize their music by bringing the Beats Music app into our vehicles," says Cristi Landy, Chevrolet marketing director. "Beats is a well-established brand, and its music service brings unique capabilities to the table that our customers will really enjoy."
