Trucks of the GM concern will receive a monitoring system for the “dead” zone of the trailer

The online publication GM-Trucks claims that full-size pickups of the GM concern, in the 2021 model year version, will receive the function of warning about movement in the “blind” zones of their trailer.

Trucks are getting smarter. Just look at America’s premier bestseller, the full-size Ford F-150. The half-ton truck is packed with a myriad of different technology features that make it an attractive choice for those who value technology and safety features in their workhorse. Moreover, the new generation F-150 will now be available with a hybrid powertrain.

In 2022, the full-size Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra will receive a trailer blind spot warning feature, according to a report from online publication GM-Trucks, which received information from reliable sources in General Motors.

It should be noted that this feature is already available on GM SUVs such as the 2021 Chevy Tahoe / Suburban, GMC Yukon and Cadillac Escalade.

If the report turns out to be true, GM trucks will receive the same functionality as the Ford F-150 pickup trucks – in the list of equipment of the latter, the warning function of the “blind” zones of the trailer appeared back in 2017.

According to GM-Trucks, the new feature has received an in-plant RPO code “UKV” and will be called “Extended Side Blind Zone Alert” or “ESBZA”. Website sources also said the new feature will be available for trucks in 2021.

Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote that a photo of an electric truck GMC Hummer 2022 was published. An image of a wheel of an electric truck / SUV GMC Hummer appeared on the Web. The presentation of the novelty will take place in the coming weeks, and the start of mass production is scheduled only for 2021.
