2021 GMC Sierra 1500 Trailering | Edinburg, TX
For 2021, GMC has implemented a wide range of trailering innovations. According to GMC, more than half of its Sierra customers primarily use the pickup truck for towing equipment for outdoor adventures, like camping and boating. That makes it crucial for the Sierra 1500 to stay at the head of its class in terms of trailering technology.
What new trailering tech can you expect from the 2021 GMC Sierra 1500, available at Bert Ogden Buick GMC in Edinburg, Texas? Here are just a few of the latest technologies:
Trailer Length Indicator
This new technology displays a red overlay double the length of the trailer when the driver engages the turn signal. This will help you determine if there is enough space to make a safe lane change.
Also new for 2021, this tech notifies you if there is a potential jack-knife situation — meaning the trailer is approaching too closely to the rear of the Sierra pickup.
Guidelines and Trailer-Angle Indicator
GMC has updated the Rear Trailer View in the GMC Sierra to include guidelines, which are helpful when reversing with a trailer. In addition, the Rear Trailer View now boasts Trailer-Angle Indicator so you can see the relationship between the trailer and the truck.
Rear Side View
While Rear Side View is not new for the 2021 Sierra, GMC has updated the technology. New for this year, the technology gives you access to the split view of the sides of the truck when driving in reverse. This makes it easier to see around the truck and trailer when positioning the trailer.
Cargo Bed View
Again, Cargo Bed View is not inherently new for 2021. However, GMC has included updates to the tech. The tech now boasts Bed Hitch Guidance and Cargo Bed Zoom View, which make it easier to align and connect a fifth-wheel/gooseneck trailer.
