GMC has outdone itself time and time again with the first-ever MultiPro Tailgate, best-in-class cargo room, and now the ProGrade Trailering System. The ProGrade Trailering System is available in the 2020 GMC Sierra 1500 and offers innovative technology to make your trailering experience a breeze.
How to use the ProGrade Trailering System in the 2020 GMC Sierra 1500
The ProGrade Trailering System has numerous options and settings that allow you to control not only your 2020 GMC Sierra 1500, but your trailer as well. Below are some helpful tips and tricks on how to maximize the ProGrade Trailering system on your 2020 GMC Sierra 1500.
GMC Trailering App
First, the GMC Trailering App is a great tool that works alongside the ProGrade Trailering System. The GMC Trailering App syncs with the GMC Infotainment System in your 2020 GMC Sierra 1500, thus allowing you to make adjustments simultaneously on both devices.
From the GMC Trailering App, you can test your trailer light, monitor your trailer’s tire pressure, and activate the theft alert. These features are easily accessible and can be changed any time right from your smartphone.
Hitch Guidance with Hitch View
One of the most convenient features of the ProGrade Trailing System is the Hitch Guidance with Hitch View. The Hitch View Camera gives you a bird-eye-view of your hitch and the trailer you are wanting to hook up to. With the Hitch Guidance, virtual guidelines will show which way your truck is angled, so you line up your hitch with ease. The Hitch Guidance with Hitch View speeds up with hook-up process and makes it so that you do not have to keep getting out of your truck to see if you are lined up to the trailer hitch.
Auto Electric Parking Brake Assist
When parking your truck with a trailer attached, it can roll forward or backward a couple of inches. The Auto Electric Parking Brake Assist in the 2020 GMC Sierra 1500 stops it from rolling when you park, so you do not have to worry about hitting another vehicle.
Integrated Trailer Brake Controller
The Integrated Trailer Brake Controller works similarly to the Auto Electric Parking Brake Assist. Instead of assisting with your truck’s braking, it assists in stopping your trailer from rolling forward or backward a couple inches. It also has settings that allow you to specify the weight and profile of your trailer, thus allowing you to full customize the trailer braking.
Hitch Area Lighting
Connecting to a trailer in the dark can be difficult, but not with the Hitch Area Lighting Park Break Assist. When your 2020 GMC Sierra 1500 is in reverse, a light will shine down on the trailer hitch. So no matter whether you’re going camping during the day or night, you do not have to worry about struggling with hooking up your trailer.
Trailer Sway Control
When hauling a trailer, it can begin to sway depending on your speed and road conditions. The Trailer Sway Control feature senses when your trailer begins to sway while driving and corrects it for you. It prevents swaying by activating the trailer brakes and cutting back on engine power.
Trailering Camera Package
To fully maximize the capability of your 2020 GMC Sierra 1500, you can get the available Trailering Camera Package. This packages adds two rear-facing camera and a trailer-mounted camera to your truck. These cameras allow you to see down the side of your truck and both sides of the trailer you are hauling.
Overall, GMC has made massive improvements over the years and taking the time to make innovative changes; they have successfully done this with the add-on of the ProGrade Trailering System. The ProGrade Trailering System takes out the guesswork and extra added time to hooking up and hauling a trailer.
