Power is always a good thing to have on tap, but it’s no use if the vehicle can’t come to a controlled stop. Brembo and General Motors have teamed up to offer a nice upgrade for its light-duty trucks and SUVs.
Brembo brake upgrades are now available for the Chevrolet Silverado, GMC Sierra, Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban, GMC Yukon and Yukon XL and the Cadillac Escalade. The six-piston, red brake calipers are front and center, and larger brake pads and vented rotors round out the upgrade.
“During GM testing, the Performance Brake Upgrade system provided a 31 percent reduction in pedal force and 12 percent reduction in pedal travel at max deceleration, providing improved pedal feel,” Dan Sandberg, Brembo North America president and CEO, said.
The brake upgrades packages are available at all Chevrolet, GMC and Cadillac dealerships. Even better: when they’re installed at a General Motors dealership, the warranty is unaffected. The kits can also be purchased online at each brand’s accessories store.
