The new setup is called the Intellihaul 2.0 Trailering Camera System, and is available through Chevrolet and GMC dealerships. According to the manufacturer, the system was developed for 2019-model-year-and-newer Chevy Silverado 1500 / GMC Sierra 1500 pickups, as well as 2020-model-year-and-newer Heavy Duty Silverado and Sierra models, specifically those not equipped with the High Definition Surround Vision Package (RPO code UVS).
The new system includes a wireless trailer camera, side blind spot cameras, and a smart graphical user interface integrated with the factory infotainment screen. The graphical interface automatically activates based on driver inputs, such as when using the turn signals or reversing, but can also be activated using the touchscreen controls.
“While towing in Silverado and Sierra trucks, the driver is presented with significant blind spot areas when driving, parking, and reversing,” EchoMaster states in a press release. “This system provides visibility into those blind spots to help improve the driver’s situational awareness, enabling a safer and more informed driving experience.”
Standout features include HD camera quality, factory-matched side mirror pods, and multiple camera views. There’s also the option for up to four cameras total.
Two versions are available, including one for the Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra light-duty pickups, and another for the Chevy Silverado HD and GMC Sierra HD pickups, with differentiation between the two systems coming down to the factory-matched blind spot camera housings. The system will not void the factory warranty.
