If you are the busy parent of a growing family, a success-minded professional, a studious academic, or all of the above, you’ve probably caught yourself longing for an extra hand. Thanks to the latest feature arriving on the 2022 GMC Sierra Denali, your wish could be granted sooner rather than later.
The next generation of GMC’s most popular pickup is set to release with a hands-free driver-assistance technology called Super Cruise.
The Super Cruise system, which is also expected to arrive for the GMC Hummer EV, lets you drive hands-free on over 200,000 miles of roadway across North America. Super Cruise relies upon a sophisticated network of GPS information, cameras, LiDAR map data, and sensors to fully control your Sierra Denali’s braking, steering, and accelerating.
Though Super Cruise is already available on a few other GM brands, this marks the first time the semi-autonomous feature has been made available on a pickup truck, and will be the technology’s first foray into the GMC lineup. The feature is expected to be a smash hit with Denver, Colorado, residents who love to use their pickup trucks to haul recreation equipment, as Super Cruise will be capable of hands-free towing.
If you’re in need of trailering tech that can stand up to the mountainous roads of Denver, Colorado, you’re in luck. New trailering technology is coming to the all-new 2021 GMC Sierra, and these upgrades are set to make towing an easier task than ever before. From your friends at Transwest Buick GMC, here’s a look at the trailering tech you can expect to see in the new Sierra.
Trailer Length Indicator
This new piece of tech enables you to maneuver your trailer with ease. Thanks to an overlay displayed on your center console screen, you’ll be able to see any vehicles that surround you and your trailer.
This feature tracks the distance between your vehicle and your trailer, alerting you if they grow too close to each other on the road. This technology is particularly useful when traveling down curvy mountain roads.
Rear Trailer View
Now enhanced with Rear Side View and the Trailer-Angle Indicator, this feature uses exterior cameras to monitor your trailer’s progress from the rear. Parking, backing up, navigating dangerous turns, and avoiding other vehicles can now be done with peace of mind.
Cargo Bed View
This enhanced feature gives you a view of your trailer’s bed, allowing you to keep watch on whatever you may be hauling. This technology also comes with Cargo Bed Zoom View and Bed Hitch Guidance.
This collection of brand-new features are available on both the 2021 GMC Sierra light-duty and heavy-duty trims. For an up-close look at these models and their trailering technology, schedule a test drive at Transwest Buick GMC today.
The big innovation for the new GMC Sierra 1500 is the MultiPro™ tailgate, which has six unique configurations that enable easier loading and unloading in the cargo bed and makes accessing the cargo bed yourself much easier. The six functions of the new MultiPro tailgate are Primary Gate, Primary Gate Load Stop, Easy Access, Full-Width Step, Inner Gate Load Stop, and Inner Gate with Work Surface.
This, of course, isn’t the only change for 2019, which
ushers in a new generation; GMC also debuted new Dynamic Fuel Management
technology on the Sierra.
To drum up excitement about the 2019 GMC Sierra 1500 and the
MultiPro tailgate specifically, the automaker released a new ad called “Anthem,”
which aired earlier this year during several important NFL games.
It’s a strange ad, but it’s doing quite well with audiences.
In the ad, a driver takes his new GMC Sierra to a hilltop as a sort of beacon
to truck drivers everywhere. And those truck drivers answer the call. The ad
shows us drivers of trucks like the Ford F-150 and Ram 1500 ripping the
tailgates off their trucks and walking together toward the hill with the
Sierra, all while singing “Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye” by Steam.
