Intelligent Crash Response System (ICRS)

  • Intelligent Crash Response System (ICRS)
Intelligent Crash Response System (ICRS)

After the airbags have been deployed in a collision, the ICRS automatically unlocks all doors, turns off power to the fuel pump, and turns on the hazard lights.¹ That’s why we call it intelligent. Because it’s looking out for you when you need it most.

  • This is an illustration and does not depict what will happen in a crash. All bags will not inflate in real-world crashes, and if multiple bags do deploy, they will be in various stages of inflating/deflating and will never all be inflated at the same time.

    ¹The Intelligent Crash Response System (ICRS) will only activate in a collision where the airbags deploy or safety belt pretensioners activate. Not all collisions cause airbags to deploy or safety belt pretensioners to activate.
