For the 2020 model year, Chevrolet Silverado camera technology is making a big leap forward. Every vehicle in the Silverado lineup, including the 1500, 2500 HD and 2500 HD, offers impressive camera technologies that let you choose from up to 15 different views.
Perhaps the most helpful camera views for trailering are when you are trying to hitch up your trailer. The Silverado offers up to four available hitch views to make this process easier.
- Hitch View. This gives you a close-up view of the receiver hitch to help with alignment.
- Surround View. With this view, you get a bird’s-eye view of your surroundings.
- Rear Top Down View. This view shows you how much clearance you have between your truck bed and other objects.
- Bed View. See inside your cargo bed with this view. This can be helpful for fifth-wheel/gooseneck hitching.
If you ever wish you could check on your trailer or surroundings while driving, there are six available camera views you can use.
- Transparent Trailer. This innovative point of view lets you “see through” your trailer so you know what is coming up behind you.
- Front Camera View. This view can help you maneuver through tight situations, like a construction site.
- Rear Trailer View. With an attached accessory camera on the back of your trailer, you can see what other vehicles and object behind your trailer.
- Pic-in-Pic Side View. Combines the Rear Side View and Rear Trailer View so you can see both perspectives at once.
- Inside Trailer View. Look at your trailer contents to make sure everything is secure.
- Rear Camera Mirror. This feature can transform your rear view mirror into camera display. It gives you a less obstructed view than a traditional mirror.
There are five available camera angles you can use while parking.
- Rear Camera View. Shows you what is behind you while maneuvering in reverse.
- Front Side View. Lets you see the angle of your front tires while parking.
- Rear Side View. Gives you a line of sight down each side of the truck.
- Bowl View. Shows you a 3D rear-facing view of your truck and trailer while moving in reverse.
- Front Top Down View. This is a top-down view of the bumper, hood, and front tires.
