2023 GMC Sierra Trailering Mirrors Available To Order Again9
Back in April 2022, GM Authority reported that the then-recently refreshed 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 would have to make do without the power-folding trailering mirrors throughout the rest of the model year. Now, the option has been made available once again for the 2023 GMC Sierra 1500.
Tagged with RPO code DQS, the available-again trailering mirrors are power-adjustable, and include a heated upper glass, lower convex mirrors, turn signal indicators, puddle lamps, perimeter lighting and auxiliary lighting. Notably, the mirrors are also power folding and manual extending.
For the 2023 Sierra 1500, this option costs $260 on SLT, AT4 and Denali trim levels. On the SLT trim, the mirrors require choosing the $995 Sierra Safety Plus Package (PED), the $1,670 SLT Convenience Package (PCY) and the $490 ProGrade Trailering System (ZL6) beforehand.
It’s worth noting that the DQS trailering mirrors were made unavailable during the 2022 model year, and were unable to be ordered at the production start of the 2023 model year.
In their stead, the certain trims of the Sierra 1500 were offered with manual-folding/extending mirrors (DPO), which included most of the features of the power-folding mirrors. These trims included the Pro, SLE, and Elevation, while the SLT, AT4, AT4X and Denali trim levels were not offered with manual-folding mirrors at all.
As a reminder, 2023 GMC Sierra 1500 is offered with four engine choices, starting with the turbocharged 2.7L I4 L3B gasoline engine, which produces 310 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque. Further engine options include the atmospheric 5.3L V8 L84 gasoline engine, rated at 355 horses and 383 pound-feet of torque, the atmospheric 6.2L V8 L87 gasoline engine, which develops 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque, and the 3.0L I6 LZ0 turbodiesel Duramax, which churns out 277 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque.
The Sierra 1500 rides on the GM T1 platform, while production takes place at the GM Silao Plant in Mexico and GM Fort Wayne Assembly plant in Indiana.

One would expect that the writer would be on top of his game after nearly a year, but oh well, hard to find workers these days. 🤣 Just kidding, lots of numbers to keep track of.
Can the full power trailer mirrors now available for 2023 retro fit to a 2022 2500 SLE Sierra?
Pretty pathetic GM couldn’t supply enough mirrors for their customers that needed them for towing! I wouldn’t buy any truck that I couldn’t configure for my needs. If you’re willing to spend over $55K for a truck you better be able to purchase a extra $300 option to tow safely!!!😡
Only the power folding versions of the “trailering mirrors” were on a production hold, and only on 1500’s. It was my understanding that both the manual and power folding trailer mirrors, continued to be available on 3/4 and 1 tons, the trucks most people buy for trailering. The huge, elephant ear, trailering mirrors are rarely ordered by 1500 customers, and to be honest, look quite out of place on a 1500.
I regularly tow an eighteen foot cargo trailer with my 1500 Denali, as well as an open car trailer, and find the standard power mirrors more than adequate. They’ve even been okay for the couple times I’ve towed a friend’s 28 foot enclosed race car trailer. The trailer mirrors would be better for a large trailer like the race car one, but a 3/4 ton is also more appropriate for a trailer that large (which is what the race car’s owner usually tows with). Like the race car trailer, anyone towing a travel trailer, large horse trailer, etc, should and probably does, tow with a 3/4 or 1 ton. The trailering mirrors are so uncommon on 1500’s, GM Authority couldn’t even a picture of a 1500 with them to put in the article.
Every automaker, not just GM, has been struggling with supply issues, and temporarily deleting features and options. Any buyer not willing to take a vehicle missing some options or features, is going to be waiting a long time before they find the vehicle they want. Probably years! Unfortunately, it’s the nature of the business right now.
Thank you gbvette, finally someone who understands a bit more than what you see on the surface and someone who can comment on here without taking out their life’s aggressions on the GMA community!

Us Silverado guys would appreciate any update on trailoring mirrors. Thanks So Much. Gene
