Silverado to offer 4 levels of towing aid

Chevrolet will be making it easy for buyers of the new Silverado 1500 to tow trailers. All customers will get access to the myChevrolet app, which will provide a step by step pre departure towing checklist and a glossary of terms. Second is a package that comes with three trailer cameras that offer a 270 degree view. The advanced trailering system comes standard on the LTZ and High Country trim, which includes auto parking brake assist, and a dynamic backing guideline in the rearview camera. There will also be an optional system which will allow drivers to monitor the pressure and temp of the trailers tire through the infotainment system. Lastly Chevy will offer an advanced trailer system infotainment app that will let customers track mileage, fuel economy and transmission temp of their truck while hauling.

So..two of those levels of towing aids are apps? I do like the 270 degree camera and the guidelines for reversing. Most people with any level of towing expertise frequently check the tire pressures on their trailer, though I guess it could be useful to know their temperature as well.

My main concern with all this new tech is firstly how accurate/reliable will it be and second is it just going to lead to a higher cost of ownership due to issues/repairs? And I don't really know how useful all this information will be if its restricted to an app. That's not all that useful if you can't manage it while driving.

I wish they didn't wait to offer it on the new Silverado but also the new Colorado that had a head start. If it wasn't for how competitive and lucrative the segment is and continues to be then I wouldn't be for it as much.
