Chevrolet has made the 2018 Tahoe Police Pursuit Vehicle an ever safer vehicle for officers after it announced a new active safety feature package on Monday.
The Enhanced Driver Assist Package will add five different active safety technologies with low speed forward automatic braking a first for any pursuit-rated vehicled. The system applies the brakes to help reduce a collision’s severity if the vehicle is traveling at a low speed and the system detects that a front-end collision is imminent.
Other technologies on board include:
- Forward collision alert
- Lane keep assist with lane departure warning
- Safety alert driver seat
- Power adjustable pedals
Chevrolet noted the benefits of forward collision alert and automatic braking, in particular. The IIHS said in 2017 that with both technologies combined, the rate of rear-end crashes decreased by 50 percent.
The brand updated its police fleet offerings quietly this past March and added the current-generation Impala to the PPV fleet. The car directly replaces the previous-generation Impala and the now-discontinued Chevrolet Caprice PPV.
