Continue reading to learn more about some of the towing tech features that are available on the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado.
Trailer Light Test
Before you head out on the road, you want to make sure the lights are working on your trailer. But what if you’re alone? This feature activates your brake lights and turn signals, so you are able to get out and make sure the lights are working properly.
Rear Trailer Camera
You don’t have to worry about losing access to your Silverado’s rearview camera, thanks to this feature. This auxiliary camera displays on your infotainment screen and can be mounted on the rear of your trailer, so you are able to monitor what’s going on behind your trailer as you back up.
Hitch Guidance with Hitch View
When you select Hitch Guidance on the rear vision camera screen, you’ll get some dynamic lines on the screen to help you guide your Silverado into the right spot. High View lets you zoom in closer and get a aerial view for even more confidence when hooking up.
When this system detects that a trailer is hooked up to your Silverado, it reminds you to turn on Tow/Haul mode, which is designed to improve acceleration while you’re towing a hefty load.
Trailer Theft Alert
You can double down on security with this industry-first feature, which can sense when your trailer is unplugged while your Silverado is parked. Should this happen, the system will alert you by sounding the horn and flashing the lights. As an added precaution, if you have an active OnStar Safety & Security Plan and have set up your Theft Alarm Notification preferences, this system can notify you via phone, text, or email.
Trailer Tire Pressure and Temperature Monitor
Extending the tire pressure monitoring to your trailer, this system allows you to keep track of the pressure and temperature of the air in up to four of your trailer tires. This can help to detect and avoid potential tire blowouts.
