Trucks can be equipped with a new gooseneck/fifth-wheel trailering prep package as well as a trailering camera system.

GMC has introduced a number of trailering enhancements for the 2016 Sierra and Sierra HD.

First up, the Sierra HD can be equipped with a new gooseneck/fifth-wheel trailering prep package.  The package costs $350 and includes a frame-mounted hitch platform that accommodates a gooseneck ball hitch or fifth-wheel hitch.  Buyers will also receive a trailer wiring harness and a cap that can be used to hide the hitch platform when it's not in use.

Despite its modest price tag, the package enables the truck to have a trailering rating of up to 23,200 pounds.

The Sierra 1500 and Sierra HD can also be outfitted with a new trailering camera system that costs $999 and was developed with the assistance of Echomaster.  The system consists of two mirror-mounted cameras and a rear camera - with infrared lighting technology - that is mounted to the back of a trailer.  The cameras send video footage to the cabin where it can easily be viewed on the IntelliLink infotainment system.

The system has also been designed to support the use of an optional fourth camera.  GMC says the camera could be used inside a trailer to monitor horses or other livestock during transport.
