Head curtain side-impact air bags

The 2013 Avalanche® offers an all-encompassing approach to safety. Inflatable head curtain air bags1 deploy inside the vehicle in a crash on the side of the vehicle that is struck. They're designed to help reduce the risk of head and neck injuries to front and rear seat outboard occupants in certain side-impact collisions. On Avalanche, these air bags feature a rollover sensor.

1 Always use safety belts and the child restraints. Children are safer when properly secured in a rear seat in the appropriate child restraint. See the Owner's Manual for more information.
