Sierra Trailering Camera System
The new Sierra Trailering Camera promises to help truck owners more easily tow and haul. They can also better keep an eye on their cargo. Developed with Echomaster, this camera and blind-spot detection system features two side-view cameras and a third designed to be attached to the back of the trailer. The view from these cameras shows up on the IntelliLink screen in the cabin. These cameras allow a much greater awareness of the driving environment. Later this summer, a forth camera option may be available to see inside the trailer. This system is available on the 2016 GMC Sierra 1500 and heavy-duty models.
Fifth-Wheel Trailering Prep on the 2016 GMC Sierra
GMC Sierra HD models will also be available with a gooseneck/fifth-wheel trailering prep package. This option features a frame-mounted hitch platform and tray that can accept fifth-wheel hitch mounting brackets or a gooseneck ball hitch. When not needed, the hitch can be removed so that Sierra owners can use of their entire truck bed for hauling. When properly equipped with fifth-wheel trailering capability, a 2016 GMC Sierra 2500HD can tow up to 8,165 kilograms, and a 3500HD can haul between 7,938 kilograms and 10,523 kilograms, depending on whether it has single or dual rear wheels.
