The 2021 GMC Sierra has received a range of new trailering technologies and features that aim to take some of the stress out of towing.
These new trailering features will be available on both the 2021 GMC Sierra and the 2021 GMC Sierra HD. General Motors is also proud to point out that these features are arriving at a time when more Americans are turning to outdoor activities that require a trailer due to the COVID-19 pandemic. A recent RV Industry Association study found that more than 46 million Americans are planning to take an RV trip in the next year and as a result, shipments of RVs have spiked this summer.
New or enhanced trailering tech available on both 2021 GMC Sierra and Sierra HD includes:
- Trailer Length Indicator
- Jack-Knife Alert
- Rear Trailer View
- Rear Side View enhancement
- Cargo Bed Zoom View & Bed Hitch Guidance
In a statement, GMC Marketing Director Rich Latek said the automaker received customer feedback asking for technologies that can make towing a little easier and safer, as well.
“Trailering is essential for pickup truck customers,” he said. “More than half of our Sierra customers use their trucks to primarily tow equipment for outdoor adventures. We continually listen to customer feedback, which tells us they want class-leading safety, technology and comfort to tow what they need, whether it’s a boat, an RV or a trailer hauling off-road toys.”
