New GM pickups will offer lots of exciting extra features

Article by Christian Andrei, on January 4, 2013

General Motors offers lots of exciting extra features on its new pickups. During the recent launch of the redesigned Silverado and Sierra, GM executives said that the horsepower, torque, towing capacity, and fuel economy of the new pickups would be what pickup customers would want in order to accomplish their jobs.

Of course, GM, Ford and Chrysler have always excelled in producing trucks. It’s to be expected that the vital specs of these pickups are impressive. Most of the time, the added features are what makes a pickup stand out. For instance, the Silverado has 3 auxiliary power outlets, the cigarette-lighter plugs, three USB outlets to charge your phones or other electronic gadgets, and a 110-volt outlet.

According to Chris Hilts, the Silverado interior design manager, a house can be powered by what’s inside the truck. The inside of the bed can be illuminated by LED lights under the truck bed's rails. This will surely be appreciated by anyone who has ever loaded or unloaded a truck when it’s dark and by those who are looking for things under a tonneau cover.

The CornerStep certainly makes it easier to get into the bed without having to lower the tailgate. This little step integrated into the bumper's rear corners and the handhold at the right location on the box rail protectors are very practical features.
