Air bag system

To enhance protection for you and your passengers in the event of a crash, your Traverse® comes with an air bag system,1 including:

  • Frontal air bags for the driver and front seat passenger, which work with the safety belts to help absorb crash energy in a frontal or near-frontal collision; these dual-stage air bags vary their inflation speed and pressure depending on the severity of the impact, reducing the risk of air bag-related injury
  • Side-impact air bags for the driver and front seat passenger, which deploy from the seats and provide additional protection when your vehicle is struck from the side
  • Head curtain air bags, which deploy from the roof rails along each side and enhance protection during a rollover, side impact or severe frontal impact for protection of all three rows

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