StabiliTrak® System

The vehicle may have the StabiliTrak system which combines antilock brake, traction and stability control systems and helps the driver maintain directional control of the vehicle in most driving conditions. This is accomplished by selectively applying any one of the vehicle’s brakes and reducing engine power.

The StabiliTrak system comes on automatically whenever the vehicle is started. The system cannot be turned off.
