Chevrolet has revealed new technology in addition to its latest heavy-duty truck: the Advanced Trailering Technology featured in the latest Chevrolet Silverado HD.
It has two engines, up to 910 lb-ft of torque, and a 35,500-pound towing capacity. It is also quite larger than older models in Chevrolet’s roster, such as the Crew Cab models which are 5.2 inches smaller than the newest Silverado. The truck is heavy-duty not just in performance but also in terms of style. Customization-wise, buyers will be able to choose between five trim levels: Work Truck, Custom, LT, LTZ, and High Country.
To help make towing easier, Chevrolet is also introducing its newest system specifically developed for these kinds of trucks. Called the Advanced Trailering System, it offers up to 15 different camera views including the admittedly mind-blowing transparent trailer option that can digitally remove the truck from the scene. HD Surround Vision is also available for a bird’s eye view of the driver’s surroundings. The only downside is some of the cameras need to have an accessory to be mounted on the item being towed, but having this system is still much better than nothing.
Another improvement that can be found is in the myChevrolet mobile app. It can provide users with remote control of different functionality on compatible trailers, like power slide-outs and extending awnings for example. The app is available on both iOS and Android devices.
The 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD will be launching this Summer 2019 in the US.
