GMC is known for raising the bar when it comes to industry safety, so it’s no wonder why the new 2017 GMC Acadia will include what could be a life-saving safety feature: the Rear Seat Reminder.

Each year, many drivers tragically, accidentally leave their children in the rear seat of the car, as well as their pets. This leads to death by heatstroke, which is hauntingly the “leading cause of non-vehicle crash fatality for kids 14 and younger,” according to the NHTSA.

Rear Seat Reminder does exactly what you would imagine: it reminds drivers to check the backseat of their vehicle before they exit it. Since the GMC Acadia is one of the top family vehicles on the market, it makes perfect sense for this model to get the new tech.
