GMC highlights new trailer tech on 2021 Sierra

GMC SierraElectronic anti sway systems are one of the features that have improved safety for people towing a trailer or a caravan. If the vehicle detects that the trailer is getting into a rhythmic swaying pattern it uses the ABS system to individually vary the braking on each wheel on the tow vehicle to correct the situation.

General Motors’ GMC Sierra premium large pickup, will have several new trailer technologies in the 2021 model year

Features will include a trailer length indicator where the screen indicates twice the length of the trailer and alerts when other vehicles are in an extended blind spot where a vehicle can interfere with a lane-change.

There’s also a jack-knife alert

An enhanced rear trailer view, with guidelines that assist when backing a trailer into place.

And a cargo bed viewer which includes a zoom view to help hitch guidance.
