4-wheel antilock, 4-wheel disc brakes

For added safety, your Traverse® comes equipped with 4-wheel antilock disc brakes – a key feature to help you maintain control while stopping on rain-slick or icy pavement. They eliminate the need to pump the brake pedal, a technique you might have learned to prevent skids caused by sudden, hard braking. Instead, when you keep steady, firm pressure on the pedal, sensors detect lockup and computerized controls automatically squeeze and release the brakes many times per second. In effect, the system pumps the brakes faster than you ever could, so the wheels won't lock and you'll retain steering control. In many emergencies, steering away from danger becomes just as important as stopping short of it.
