The all-new 2019 Silverado 1500 will introduce four levels of towing features to provide customers more confidence, better visibility, easier hitching and improved connectivity between the truck and trailer.

It seems like only just a few years ago that integrated trailer brake controllers were added, but now there’s even more new technology for towing.

Trailering capability is a huge part of a truck and to some truck owners, it’s the most important aspect.

The Advanced Trailering System infotainment app allows customers to create and store up to five profiles, including “guests,” for different trailer types.

The tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) not only checks the pickup trucks tire pressures, but also the trailer. Not only does it check the pressure, but tire temperature too.

Part of the Advanced Trailering System, Hitch Guidance with Hitch View adds dynamic backing guidelines to the Rear Vision Camera.

Zoom function on the backup camera makes it easier to align the hitch to the trailer. The parking brake is automatically set meaning the truck won’t move or become misaligned to the hitch.
