GM Set to Put Life-Saving Technology in 20 Models

General Motors was the first manufacture to put technology inside of a vehicle that specifically reminds the driver to check the back seat.

They are now putting that technology in 20 more models.

In 2015, 24 children died after being left in hot vehicles. In 2016, the number of deaths increased to 39.

“GM’s Rear Seat Reminder feature is an initial step to use technology to help remind drivers to check their rear seat before exiting the vehicle under certain conditions,” GM's Global Safety vice president Jeff Boyer said. 

GM's Rear Seat Reminder was initially only available in the 2016 Acadia, but now the new life-saving technology will be in the following 20 models:

• 2017 Buick Lacrosse
• 2017 Cadillac CT6, Escalade and Escalade ESV
• 2017 Chevrolet Colorado, Cruze, Cruze Hatchback, Malibu, Silverado, Suburban and Tahoe
• 2017 GMC Acadia, Canyon, Sierra, Yukon and Yukon XL
• 2018 Cadillac ATS, CTS, CTS-V and XT5
• 2018 Chevrolet Equinox
