The proliferation of advanced driver assist systems (ADAS) and new safety technology can be seen across the auto industry, including at GM and Chevy. Now, we’re taking a closer look at the active safety features equipped as standard or offered as optional in the 2023 Chevy vehicle lineup.
In total, we’re looking at 15 different features in this list, including safety systems like Automatic Emergency Braking, Front Pedestrian Braking, and Lane Change Alert, as well as more convenience-oriented systems like Adaptive Cruise Control. With regard to vehicles, we’re looking at 15 models total, including the Bow Tie brand’s crossovers, SUVs, pickup trucks, and sports cars.

Looking over the list of 2023 Chevy vehicle active safety features, there are a few interesting takeaways. The 2023 Chevy Silverado 1500, for example, offers nearly every feature on the list, with the exception of Front Pedestrian Braking with Bicyclist Detection, Blind Zone Steering Assist, and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.
Meanwhile, the 2023 Corvette C8 offers surprisingly few active safety features, with Side Blind Zone Alert and Rear Cross Traffic Alert the only features ticked on the list. Both are available, rather than standard.
Finally, the Chevy Camaro and Chevy Express are both a bit light on these features as well, although that should be somewhat expected given just how old both vehicles are.
That all said, most of the vehicles on this list do include Automatic Emergency Braking as standard. As GM Authority reported late last year, GM was previously called out in a study conducted by Consumer Reports that investigated which brands offered Automatic Emergency Braking as a standard feature. Per the report, only 58 percent of GM vehicles sold in 2021 were equipped with the feature. To note, that includes all four of The General’s U.S. brands – Chevy, Cadillac, Buick, and GMC.
According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), Automatic Emergency Braking is particularly important for the pickup truck segment, with one study showing a 43-percent reduction in crashes for trucks equipped with the feature. Both the Chevy Colorado and Chevy Silverado 1500 include the feature as standard, while the feature is available for the Chevy Silverado HD.

adaptive cruise control, foward collision alert, pedestrian alert. Are on my 6 year old other car
and my motorcycle. But not my new Corvette. Yes, I am disappointed.
The comfort during driving in traffic is increased with safety features. Not having these features changes deiving, in a modern world.
I want advanced safety to be mandated, like backup cameras. The cost will come down. The technology will get smaller and easier to install, on everything.
Sounds like you need to trade that vette in on a volvo and let an enthusist drive the vette.
I totally agree with start hatin! I also mention this previously and was immediately bad mouthed by the other C8 owners who think the Corvette is only to be driven on a track or like a mad man! If you don’t like the safety features then turn them off! Hopefully the insurance company will look at your system and not pay fully for your accidents if you disable safety features! Tomg
Another way to increase their prices!
If they can be on entry level vehicles at standard equipment they sure can on the price of the Corvette!
For the cost of the new midsize and full-size trucks, I think every safely feature should be standard.
How about just pay attention when you are driving, this stuff is just more problems and unnecessary cost
Do these systems take into account road road conditions such as ice and snow? Sometimes it’s better to modulate braking or aim for the empty ditch than to stand on the brakes, even with ABS. I have wondered that about self driving modes some cars have. The speed limit is X, but is that the speed you should be going?
Correction on the table: Bolt EUV has optional Enhanced AEB (comes with Super Cruise)
