Contemporary trucks boast a bounty of progressive technologies that enhance safety and convenience on each journey. Here are just four modern tech systems that modern drivers will appreciate.
Also known as a 360-degree camera system, this high-tech feature to give you a bird’s eye view of your surroundings. The goal is to increase visibility to make backing up and maneuvering in tight places safer and less stressful. The GMC Sierra 1500, for example, offers this system. It uses four cameras to project an overhead video image of the truck on the center stack display.
Chevrolet’s all-new Silverado 1500 has a few tricks up its sleeve – one of which includes a power-operated tailgate. Simply press a button and the aluminum tailgate opens and closes. Check out TopSpeed.com for more information on the all-new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500.
High-tech trailering features make accessing and loading/unloading cargo easier. For instance, the 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500 offers a power up/down tailgate. Like its name implies, this tool lets you lift or lower the tailgate by pressing a button on the key fob, tailgate, or inside of the cabin. It’s a nifty function that makes it easie to load cargo into the truck bed when your arms are full. The MultiPro tailgate on the GMC Sierra 1500 is another impressive technology, offering six separate functions to suit different tasks.

Some trucks let you see inside of the trailer during the drive, so you won’t have to make an extra stop to manually check it. For instance, the 2020 GMC Sierra HD has a Transparent Trailer View function as part of its trailer tech package. This function is also helpful if you want to see what’s directly behind the camper or trailer you’re towing.
Pickup trucks are already among the most versatile vehicles on the roads. They get equipped with powerful engines, have lots of storage and spacious interiors, however there is still room for further improvement.
Ford showed off its all-electric F-150 pickup truck prototype by towing 1.25 million pounds of train cars and trucks. With it, the brand confirmed that a capable, mass-market electric Ford pickup is coming! Ford may have just redefined the term “muscle car.” And it has nothing to do with the Mustang.
