Special Features

In modern vehicles, it’s all about the features that make life a little bit better or a little bit easier, and these trucks have both. In the easier department, you’ll have a backup camera equipped as standard equipment on the F-150, the Silverado, and the Sierra. This feature allows you to more easily hook up your trailer or other equipment to the back of your truck, but it also allows you to see any obstacles in your path as you’re reversing.

Each of these trucks also has a productivity screen in the dash by the speedometer. From this display, drivers will have a great measurement of what is going on with their vehicle. You’ll be able to keep track of the tire pressure, the gas mileage, and any illuminated warning lights right in your field of vision.
