When cars were invented more than a century ago, they didn’t do much more than just take passengers from point A to B. While modern cars still fulfill that same core purpose, they also pack so much technology as to have become veritable mobile computers.
At Warsaw Buick GMC, we like to separate car technology into three categories: powertrain, convenience, and safety. In this article, we take a brief look at some of the convenience and safety technologies customers can find across the Buick lineup. We’ll reserve a future article for powertrain tech, as it really deserves its own.
Though every Buick has its own identity and unique quirks, customers can find much of the same technology across all models. For example, Buick IntelliLink is a convenience system that helps drivers carry out tasks with just the sound of their voice, from playing their favorite music to making hands-free calls. There’s also the Remote Vehicle Starter, which is highlighted nicely in this award-winning commercial. It’s the little things that add up to a wonderful experience.
Safety technologies are more than just the antilock brakes or traction control you’ve probably heard about. Side Blind Zone Alert, Rear Parking Assist, and Rear Cross Traffic Alert are all examples of vehicle assistance designed to aid the driver in avoiding collisions. They don’t just keep you safe—they help you become a better and more aware driver.
