2019 GMC Sierra 1500 Takes Towing to New Level: Video

IMG_0159 II

During the debut of the all-new 2019 GMC Sierra 1500, we had the chance to go a little deeper into the new ProGrade Trailering System with one of the engineers who worked on packing so much towing technology into this half-ton pickup truck.

We like the fact that GMC provided new towing technology and features along with advice and checklist information. We took the time to get a high-level review of what this new trailering system offers, broken down by the engineers who put it all together. The towing system is standard on the SLT and Denali trim levels, and available across the Sierra 1500 lineup

Here's a quick look at the most thoroughly conceived and comprehensive towing package we've ever seen.

The 2018 F-150 is Consumer Reports top recommended pickup

The 2018 F-150 is Motor Trends truck of the year

The 2018 F-150 with the 2.7 Eco-Boost has the best MPG of any gasoline pickup

The 2018 F-150 has the best crash tests, the safest truck out there

The 2018 F-150 is already discounted $10K off sticker price before the spring buying season begins
(the F-150 has the highest resale value of any full size pickup)

Not only is the 2018 F-150 with the 2.7 Eco-Boost the best it will cost less than a Silverado or Ram

You're making a mistake buying a Silverado or a Ram just because you hate Ford, that's the wrong reason and just stupid

@Ecoboost Rules

Please take note: This article focuses on a the new 2019 GMC Sierra 1500. Your comment (above) is entirely off topic. Please consider sharing a more germane comment.

@ ecoboost

Your best in class fuel.economy is false. In real world the ecoboost always under perform. My step dads 2013 ecoboost never cracks 18 mpg. Ever. He has 70k on it now. 355 gears.

As for you buying an ecoboost for thousands less?? I want to see real data on that nc GM has $12k off now and I saw Ram has around $11k off.

And I wouldn't buy a new ford with an ecoboost if u paid me to! Now the new 5.0l I would!!

The problem with the Ecoboost is the fuel mileage. The GM 5.3 KILLS it in fuel mileage. I have a buddy who buys a new truck every 60K miles (work) and had a 3.5 Ecoboost. Now has a 5.0 V8 and LOVES it!. He says waaay better fuel mileage.

BTW, my next truck will be a non-turbo, non-diesel engine --> it will be gasoline V8. IMO, turbocharging or diesels are expensive to own/operate and not worth the hassle for my use.

I wonder why he buys a new truck when the warranty runs out, oh I see, he buys Fords.. Gotya!
