GM Improves Towing Experience

The 2019 Silverado 1500 makes towing a priority.

Because towing is a key purchase consideration for truck buyers, the all-new 2019 Silverado 1500 will introduce several levels of towing features to improve customers’ trailering experiences.

For starters, the myChevrolet app will offer a pre-departure step-by-step towing checklists, a glossary of towing terms, and allow drivers to conduct a trailer light test to help confirm the trailer is properly connected.

Customers who tow more often can take advantage of the available Advanced Trailering System, which includes Auto Parking Brake Assist, Hitch Guidance with Hitch View and a Trailer Tire Pressure Monitoring System. The Advanced Trailering System allows customers to track the mileage, fuel economy and transmission temperature of their truck while towing.

GM’s Trailer Theft Alert, can activate the truck’s lights and horn if the harness of the trailer attached to the truck is disconnected, as well as alert the customer via OnStar (if enrolled), that a theft has been attempted.

An all-new Trailer Camera Package offers three cameras that provide a 270-degree view, plus an optional fourth camera that mounts to the trailer to provide an even more comprehensive view while towing.

All 2019 Silverados will come with a new VIN-specific label that provides specifics about each individual vehicle’s ability to tow and haul, based on how the truck was equipped at the factory.

The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado goes on sale in the fall of 2018.
