2022 GMC Acadia to Include Pro Safety Plus on All Trims

July 20th, 2021 by

2022 GMC Acadia Charlotte NC

GMC’s world-class safety and driver assistance package will come standard on all 2022 Acadia models. The Pro Safety Plus package is one to be reckoned with, and its inclusion on the Acadia SLE, SLT, Denali, and AT4 trims will make this vehicle even safer than it was in previous years. And that’s saying something. 

Below, we’ll cover these safety upgrades in more detail. And we’ll touch on some other notable features that make the 2022 Acadia stand out in a fiercely competitive midsize SUV market. 


Pro Safety Plus  

In years past, GM’s Pro Safety Package was optional on the Acadia. Now it’s standard across all trims, along with additional safety features. This is no small thing considering all that’s included with Pro Safety Plus, such as:

• Automatic Emergency Braking  

• Front Pedestrian Braking  

• IntelliBeam Headlamps  

• Front and Rear Park Assist  

• Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning  

• Following Distance Indicator  

• Forward Collision Alert  

• Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert  

• Rear Cross Traffic Alert  


Let’s talk about a few of these features, as well as some additional advanced safety and driver assistance technology designed to optimize driver and passenger safety:

Automatic Emergency Braking — Using camera technology, this feature will automatically apply hard emergency braking to help prevent forward collisions. It works when your vehicle is traveling under 50 mph.  

Rear Park Assist — Parking is made much easier with this feature, which detects nearby objects behind your vehicle and provides distance alerts to help you avoid low-speed accidents. 

Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning — If you accidentally veer over one of your lane lines, this feature will detect it and gently nudge your steering wheel to alert you. It will also give you Lane Departure Warning alerts if necessary. ​​​ 

Forward Collision Alert — If you’re following a vehicle too closely or it detects a potential collision, this feature will alert you, leaving you with enough time to take action. 

Adaptive Cruise Control — The Acadia Denali comes with adaptive cruise control, which automatically controls your speed so that you can maintain a driver-selected gap between you and the vehicles in front of you. Naturally, this prevents you from having to brake and accelerate frequently. 

Teen Driver — Perhaps one of GM’s most unique safety features, Teen Driver comes standard on all Acadia trims. Along with allowing parents to set limits on infotainment and other features, this technology encourages good driving habits by activating specific safety systems. What’s more, you can access data via an in-vehicle report card to better teach your teen safe driving practices. 

Safety Alert Seat — This technology uses vibration pulses on the left, right, and both sides of the driver’s seat to alert you of the direction of potential collisions. If you prefer, you can change the feature to beep instead of vibrate. 

Rear Seat Reminder — Each time you park and turn the vehicle off, Rear Seat Reminder will chime five times and display a visual message on the Driver Information Center. This feature can prove invaluable if you drive with babies or keep important items in the backseat. 


Other Changes 

Along with providing some serious safety upgrades, GMC has made some other changes for the 2022 Acadia lineup worth noting. For example, there will no longer be an SL trim, nor will the Red Mahogany Metallic exterior color be available. Also, though it will still have six- and seven-passenger options available, you can’t get the AT4 in a five-passenger layout anymore. Moreover, the V92 trailering package used to only be available alongside the 3.6-liter V6 LGX engine, but you can now get it with the turbocharged 2.0-liter I4 LSY gasoline engine as well.
