Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) Chevrolet Silverado 1500

If the vehicle has Forward Collision Alert (FCA), it also has AEB (1500 series only), which includes Intelligent Brake Assist (IBA). When the system detects a vehicle ahead in your path that is traveling in the same direction that you may be about to crash into, it can provide a boost to braking or automatically brake the vehicle. This can help avoid or lessen the severity of crashes when driving in a forward gear. Depending on the situation, the vehicle may automatically brake moderately or hard. This automatic emergency braking can only occur if a vehicle is detected. This is shown by the FCA vehicle ahead indicator being lit. See [linkin] Forward Collision Alert (FCA) System 0 264.

The system works when driving in a forward gear between 8 km/h (5 mph) and 80 km/h (50 mph).

It can detect vehicles up to approximately 60 m (197 ft)..

[symbolwarning] Warning.

AEB is an emergency crash preparation feature and is not designed to avoid crashes. Do not rely on AEB to brake the vehicle. AEB will not brake outside of its operating speed range and only responds to detected vehicles.

AEB may not:

• Detect a vehicle ahead on winding or hilly roads.

• Detect all vehicles, especially vehicles with a trailer, tractors, muddy vehicles, etc.

• Detect a vehicle when weather limits visibility, such as in fog, rain, or snow.

• Detect a vehicle ahead if it is partially blocked by pedestrians or other objects.

Complete attention is always required while driving, and you should be ready to take action and apply the brakes and/or steer the vehicle to avoid crashes.

AEB may slow the vehicle to a complete stop to try to avoid a potential crash. If this happens, AEB may engage the Electric Parking Brake (EPB) to hold the vehicle at a stop. Release the EPB or firmly press the accelerator pedal..

[symbolwarning] Warning.

AEB may automatically brake the vehicle suddenly in situations where it is unexpected and undesired. It could respond to a turning vehicle ahead, guardrails, signs, and other non-moving objects. To override AEB, firmly press the accelerator pedal, if it is safe to do so.

Intelligent Brake Assist (IBA).

IBA may activate when the brake pedal is applied quickly by providing a boost to braking based on the speed of approach and distance to a vehicle ahead.

Minor brake pedal pulsations or pedal movement during this time is normal and the brake pedal should continue to be applied as needed.

IBA will automatically disengage only when the brake pedal is released..

[symbolwarning] Warning.

IBA may increase vehicle braking in situations when it may not be necessary. You could block the flow of traffic. If this occurs, take your foot off the brake pedal and then apply the brakes as needed.

AEB and IBA can be disabled. See “Collision/Detection Systems” under Vehicle Personalization 0 153..

[symbolwarning] Warning.

Using AEB or IBA while towing a trailer could cause you to lose control of the vehicle and crash.

Turn the system to Alert or Off when towing a trailer.

A system unavailable message may display if:

• The front of the vehicle or windshield is not clean.

• Heavy rain or snow is interfering with object detection.

• There is a problem with the StabiliTrak/Electronic Stability Control (ESC) system.

The AEB system does not need service.
